San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 12, 2014 -- Follow us on LinkedIn – Demand for builders’ and cabinet hardware generally follows the trends in the construction industry. Improvement in new housing projects, renovation and refurbishment is driving demand for builders’ and cabinet hardware, which are installed on doors, windows and cabinets. Growing global population and the subsequent increase in demand for housing units is expected to offer sizeable growth opportunities in the market. Rapid urbanization and urban sprawl as a result of increased migration of population from urban and semi-urban centers in search of employment opportunities, is also driving growth in the market. Appearance, color and finish continue to play an important role in product selection. As a mature market characterized by intense competitive pressures, manufacturer focus is shed on product innovation as a key factor for product differentiation in a crowded marketplace. Novel styles and designs are continuously launched into the market as manufacturers strive to establish new benchmarks.
Materials such as nickel, copper, bronze, brass, steel, stainless steel and wrought iron are some of the most commonly used materials in cabinet hardware. Brass finishes, which lost momentum years ago, are once again gaining attention. Other hardware finishes that are gaining ground include bronze finish, brushed nickel finish, polished brass finish, antique brass finish and brushed nickel finish. In addition to appearance, factors such as ease of use by children, aged and disabled, as well as user friendliness are also becoming critical in decision making. Technology advancements in the builders’ hardware market are expected to benefit market prospects in the coming years. Electronic door hardware, such as electronic security systems and access control systems are increasingly gaining prominence.
