This study analyzes US demand for green (or vegetative) roofing by market, system type, component, and geographic region. Historical data (2010, 2015, and 2020) and forecasts for 2025 and 2030 are presented for green roofing demand in current US dollars (including inflation) and in square feet.

Data are presented at the manufacturers’ level and exclude the value of mark-ups or installation. Demand also excludes the value of existing components (e.g., waterproof membrane, insulation) that are not replaced and installed as part of the new vegetative roof assembly. For roofs that are partially covered by vegetative roofing, only the area of green roof coverage is included in the scope of this study.

Other exclusions include rooftop container gardens, living walls and vegetative building façades, decorative rooftop elements (e.g., pavers, edging), and separately sold sprinkler systems.

Green roofs are segmented by market in terms of:

  • new construction
  • retrofit

Demand is segmented by system type in terms of:

  • extensive
  • semi-intensive
  • intensive

Green roof assemblies consist of a layer of vegetation planted over a waterproofing system that is installed directly on a (typically low-slope) roof. Demand in this study is segmented by the different layers typically found in a vegetative roof system, including:

  • vegetation
  • growing media
  • geotextiles and a drainage layer
  • insulation
  • waterproof membrane
  • other components, such as built-in irrigation components, membrane protection boards, and edging that is not part of the drainage layer

Additionally, green roofing demand is broken out for the following US geographic regions:

Northeast, Midwest, South, West.

Green roofing demand is also provided for Canada in square feet and US dollars.
