These properties make them suitable for the commercial sector. The growing number of construction activities in the commercial sector is likely to support segment growth.

Traditional solutions had challenges on the use of materials for in-fills and glazing. However, technological advancements have resulted in the use of marble, granite, and stones for in-fills. While aluminum provides light-weight, glass-based materials provide flexibility and transparency, thus, enabling designers to create aluminum curtain walls of customized shape and size. The popularity of such materials is increasing among contractors thereby, leading to surging demand. Technological advancements are further enabling them to allocate alternative energy sources, thus, making buildings sustainable and eco-friendly.
