Firefighters controlled a stubborn, two-alarm fire Tuesday night, but not before it inflicted extensive damage on a market and deli on Southwest Canyon Road. These facts have been extracted from AMA Research’s report ‘Domestic Conservatory and Glazed Extensions Market Report – UK 2014-2018 Analysis’, available from or by calling 01242 235724. Following a difficult period, the commercial glazing market has seen a modest increase in 2013, followed by significant growth in 2014 which appears to have been sustained in 2015.
The decline in High Street retailing – as well as in retail parks and out-of-town developments – will probably continue, as online shopping continues to penetrate the market. On the supply side, some product sectors have seen relatively little change other than some smaller companies going out of business, and among the systems companies the market has remained fragmented with no truly dominant suppliers. The ‘Commercial Glazing Market Report – UK 2015-2019 Analysis’ report is published by AMA Research, a leading provider of market research and consultancy services within the construction and home improvement markets.
As a result, the market outlook for commercial glazing in key application areas in office construction continues to offer the best areas for growth in the near to medium term future, though the leisure/entertainment construction sector also offers good opportunities. The market value for outsourced integrated services and TFM in health and education has fallen during 2015 and is now estimated to be worth around £3.5bn. Energy conservation is likely to remain a key driving factor within the FM market.
The public health sector has undergone a period of restructuring which has limited the development of the FM market in this sector, and significant changes also came into effect in April 2013. However, the market is thought to have started to normalise from these effects and the scope for increased penetration nevertheless remains a positive influence, supported by the Government’s encouragement of more cross-regional co-operation in procurement. Merger and acquisition activity amongst FM providers has continued and there have also been a number of instances of business failures and market withdrawals.
This has been influenced by market maturity, changes in procurement practices and moves by larger providers to expand services and geographic coverage. The outlook for the FM outsourcing market within healthcare and education is considered to be modest over the short to medium term, reflecting government focus on private sector involvement balanced by the need to work within restricted budgets.
