Today, we have decided to focus on the major glass industry trends and see how the American glass industry has been doing lately. glass repair Chandler professionals constantly monitor changes in the business environment. We believe that staying informed is an essential factor of our success, and we are sure that the information we provide here will also help other businesses to choose the most appropriate business direction.
Surprisingly or not, we have been forced to look for industry information coming from non-U.S. sources. It seems that they have some interesting things to tell us. Moreover, it is always useful to look beyond the U.S. and see how we have been performing over the past few years. In this sense, a number of Chinese resources allow for a short but productive glimpse on the construction and glass industries growth in the U.S.
It appears that, despite the slow economic recovery, the construction industry in the U.S. is remarkably promising. With a +7% growth since 2011, the U.S. construction industry has achieved the best results since December 2009. The non-residential construction sector is up 7.4% from the past year, against the +2.9% for residential construction. Needless to say, all these figures have profound implications for the future of the American glass industry.
We at Chandler Glass Repair are confident that the abovementioned changes create a strong basis for our future growth. Of particular importance is the discussed pick-up in residential construction. In this situation, glass manufacturers in the U.S. will have better opportunities to either restore their market positions or further expand their presence in the residential construction market. What seems really disturbing is that single-family house construction is still behind the most important industry trends. Glass manufacturers and service providers still lack incentives to enter this market niche. How the construction industry will operate in the nearest future is difficult to predict, but it is clear that changes in the construction industry will always have profound impacts on the way glass manufacturers in the U.S. operate.
