In recent years, the urbanization in China has been accelerating, with the mushrooming of numerous large public buildings, commercial buildings and high-end residences, which conduces to the swelling market size of the construction curtain wall industry. In 2006-2011, the gross output value of China construction curtain wall industry rose from RMB60 billion to RMB180.3 billion at the CAGR of 24.6%. In 2012, the industry attained the engineering output value of about RMB220 billion, with a year-on-year increase of 22%.
In 2013, in the context of the monetary tightening of the People's Bank of China and the slowdown of the investment in the construction industry, it is expected that the output value growth rate of China construction curtain wall industry will decline to 15% or so. According to Twelfth Five-year Development Plan of China Architectural Decoration Industry released by China Building Decoration Association (CBDA), the output value of China construction curtain wall industry will hit RMB400 billion by 2015, and the CAGR during 2011-2015 will be 21.7%.

In 2012, commercial buildings took the lion's share 67.5% of the total spending on curtain walls; public buildings consumed 29.2%; high-grade residences only used about 3.3%.
In the next few years, as China strengthens the macro-control on real estate sector and the People's Bank of China conducts tightened monetary policies, the growth rate of the curtain wall consumption applied to commercial properties and housings will drop somewhat, while the consumption in public buildings will see steady growth.
