Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) windows and doors are low maintenance, yet extremely durable and high-functioning. uPVC as a building material has garnered attention for being a superior alternative to other previously favoured traditional materials, like wood and steel.

uPVC frames include a chambered vinyl extrusion which makes them energy-efficient and durable. These windows and doors are used in various types of residential and commercial spaces, schools, offices, and even hotels –  making it a wide scoping purchase.

Why uPVC is the future:

uPVC doors and windows are considered to be a smart investment and an excellent purchase decision as they do not require any repainting and extensive maintenance. They are high-functioning as they do not rot, warp or corrode and their profile colour remains the same for years to come, even in the harshest climatic conditions, be it summer, winter or monsoon.

Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) windows and doors are eco-friendly as there is no wood or lead in them, and they can be recycled. They are much easier to maintain and much more durable than metal or wood. These window and door profiles are termite resistant and last for years.

uPVC windows and doors are available in various designs and styles that will appeal to any architect or builder, and they can be installed in any kind of building, be it villas, high-rise apartments, offices, commercial buildings, hotels, schools or hospitals.

uPVC profiles are available in various colour options as well, adding value to your interiors as well as exteriors. The current trend of laminate profiles is increasingly preferred. Laminates provide you with a certain finishing, for example – a wood finish, giving your building an added style of wooden doors and windows.

uPVC profiles come with varieties in style – providing thermal insulation, water tightness, durability, sound resistance, fitting look and appearance. Styles like casement, tilt and turn, sliding, slide and fold, and more, complement modern architecture in a unique way.

Forecast for the uPVC doors and windows industry:

The Indian uPVC window and door market was estimated at US$1071 million in 2018 and is predicted to reach around US$1810 million by the end of 2025, growing at a compound growth rate of 7.84% during 2019-2025.

The market is expected to expand consistently in the mid-long term due to several motivating factors including shortage of household units in the country (Central government’s initiatives to develop affordable housing for all by 2022 through PMAY — Urban and Gramin) and the building of many smart cities across the country. The growth of the uPVC doors and windows industry is expected to be driven by large high-rise apartments in expanding metro cities.

The announcement of 100 smart cities, increase in Foreign Direct Investment and the rapidly growing middle class, all give a clear indication of the  uPVC window and door market’s opportunities and a growth at an optimistic rate. With metropolitan cities becoming noisy and polluted, uPVC windows and doors are optimal solutions to abate noise and ensure cleaner air to breathe.

With the growing number of façade, door and window manufacturers in the country, and the Make in India initiative, buyers are willing to opt for high-performance uPVC windows and doors that are made in India rather than the earlier choices of cheap and low-quality international brands, since Indian brands such as Fenesta, Aparna Venster, etc provide high-performance uPVC windows and doors that are made using world-class technology.
