Made in Poland - Polish windows in the United States

blog | 26.10.2023

Poland is one of the largest European manufacturers of window joinery. It is also the world's leading exporter of windows and doors - as it accounted for 19.6% of global sales in 2022. Its very good condition and huge technological potential is evidenced by the fact that domestic solutions are winning more and more foreign markets every year. Recently, they have also begun to successfully conquer the American market.

Polish windows in the United States

USA among the most popular export destinations

The United States is the largest non-European market and at the same time the most important export direction for Polish manufacturers and distributors of woodwork.

According to data collected by the Center for Industry Analysis, in 2022 Polish manufacturers of woodwork recorded very good sales results in the United States, with windows and doors sold for 80.2 million euros. This is 100% more than in 2021, at which time the sales value of Polish windows and doors in the US was €40 million (which was already a huge success).

This puts the United States in the second ten most popular export destinations for Polish manufacturers. Plastic and aluminum windows and doors are the most popular, while steel and wood products are much less popular for export.

Polish windows, European windows - better?

Until recently, most building structures in the United States were built from wood. However, tightening energy requirements have also made it necessary for investors and architects across the great water to reach for modern solutions to create passive or zero-energy houses.

European laws in this regard are much stricter, so they choose to import European carpentry. This way they can equip their investment with high-quality solutions with much better thermal performance.

European vs. American woodwork

European solutions technologically more advanced

As we mentioned, thanks to European construction standards, which determine the continuous development of the market, solutions developed in the European Union countries are much more technologically advanced. Thus, European manufacturers are able to create products of much larger size, while maintaining their high performance and thermal parameters. One of the most important functional aspects proving the advantage of European windows over American ones is their easy and trouble-free use. European windows also have better glazing packages. The US is dominated by double-glazing, while European solutions are most often equipped with triple-glazing, which is better suited for modern construction.

Customization versus standardization of solutions

The difference that affects the European and American woodwork market is that in the United States, the dominant position is held by huge window manufacturers, who focus on quantity and standardization of solutions in production. European manufacturers, on the other hand, care about an individual approach to customers and tailoring products to their tastes. Hence Americans, who want safe, durable, technologically advanced solutions and an individual approach, are increasingly choosing to buy European windows.
