GGF releases latest market knowledge report

The Glass & Glazing Federation (GGF) has released the second edition of its Market Knowledge Report.

The annual publication offers companies throughout the industry insight into how the sector is performing, current trends, and what the outlook is for the coming months.

Ben Wallace, head of membership and customer relations at the GGF, said: “We are in a unique position at the GGF because we hold a good overview of the whole industry through our members, as well as through our associated businesses, FENSA, RISA and the BFRC.

“The report draws information from the 500,000+ installations registered with FENSA every year, internal data from BFRC and RISA, as well as information included in a Mintel report from 2022 entitled ‘UK Residential Windows & Doors’.

“The market has been so tumultuous in recent years that it has been especially difficult to keep track of the changing challenges and opportunities. We didn’t anticipate Covid, and we didn’t anticipate the war in Ukraine, but as the market adjusts to these world events, there are clear trends emerging,” he continued.

“As the saying goes, ‘information is power’ and having this data is an incredibly powerful tool to help manage businesses now and in the coming years. As well as industry facts and figures, the report also includes useful articles on key topics affecting the industry today including the skills shortage, Building Regulations, and sustainability.

“This comprehensive annual report is free to all GGF members and available to the rest of the market for £250+VAT. We understand how useful it is to be abreast of the latest trends and market information, but also how difficult and time-consuming it can be to pull all the necessary data together from reliable sources. This report gives the industry valuable insight they can trust,” he concluded.
