Roofing: United Kingdom

This report forecasts to 2022 roofing demand in square meters in the UK. Total roofing demand and shipments are also forecast in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Total demand in square meters is segmented by product in terms of: low-slope bituminous; concrete tile; metal; fiber cement; asphalt shingles and corrugated panels; and other roofing products such as plastic, clay tile, and rubber. Total demand in square meters is also segmented by market as follows: new residential, residential reroofing, new nonresidential, and nonresidential reroofing.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand in area terms is provided in annual series from 2007 to 2017; total demand by value, total shipments by value, and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2007, 2012, and 2017.

For the purposes of this report, demand for roofing products is measured in terms of total roof area covered, not the total amount of material used. Demand in value terms is shown at the manufacturer level and excludes distributor and retailer markups. Materials used as underlayment for other roofing products and roofing accessories, such as metal flashings, snow guards, and vents, are not included in the scope of this report.

For any given historical year, US dollar amounts are obtained from values expressed in applicable local currency. These local currency values are converted to US dollars at the average annual exchange rate for that year. For forecast years, the US dollar amounts assume the same annual exchange rate as that prevailing in 2017.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
