US demand for asphalt will reach 38 million tons in 2011. Paving products will remain the dominant segment and benefit from increased government spending on highway and road construction. Roofing products will grow slightly faster, driven by good prospects for low-slope roofing products in nonresidential markets.
This study analyzes the $15 billion US asphalt industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1996, 2001 and 2006, and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by asphalt product (e.g., cement, emulsions, cutback, shingles, modified roofing membranes); market (e.g., residential building, nonresidential building, nonbuilding); and region.
The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles 40 major players including Marathon, Valero, CITGO, BP, Oldcastle, Colas, Vulcan Materials, SemMaterials, GAFMC, CertainTeed, Owens Corning, ElkCorp, Bridgestone, TAMKO Building Products, and Johns Manville.
