The growing commercial building construction sector is significantly fueling the consumption of curtain walls across the globe. The product adoption has been further fueled by modern architecture and smart city development projects. An uptick in green building investments in conjunction with growing government initiatives for smart cities is bolstering the curtain wall market.

For instance, according to the International Finance Corporation (IFC), green buildings represent an investment opportunity of around USD 24.7 trillion in emerging markets by 2030. Cities are expanding at a fast pace in emerging markets to keep up with urbanization and high population growth. On the other hand, the high costs associated with the installation & maintenance of curtain walls are likely to hamper product penetration.

Unitized curtain walls to witness high traction

The unitized segment generated over USD 22.8 billion in 2021 and is poised to grow at a CAGR of about 10.2% through 2028. In the case of unitized curtain walls, around 70% of the work is completed at the factory location, which leads to significantly less installation time and low manpower needs.

These factors along with others, such as high energy efficiency, improved quality, and ease of installation in high-rise buildings, are cumulatively contributing to the adoption of unitized curtain walls for both commercial & residential applications. Other key elements that are stimulating the unitized curtain wall industry include good resistance & integrity against temperature deformations, seismic deformation, and story displacement, among others.
