    Industry Report - Industry SWOT Analysis Chapter

    The Glazing Services industry is in the mature stage of its economic life cycle. Glazing services are essential in a range of downstream construction industries, as residential and non-residential buildings all require windows, doors and other glass surfaces. In addition, emergency glass replacement and repair services can help to offset weaker activity in downstream construction markets.

    Industry value added (IVA), which is used to measure an industry's contribution to the overall economy, is forecast to increase at an annualised 1.5% over the 10 years through 2021-22.
