US consumption of asphalt products will reach 30.8 million tons in 2013. Demand gains will derive primarily from the recovery of new residential construction from its weak 2008 levels, benefiting both roofing and paving products. The dominant paving product segment will benefit from increased government spending on highway and road construction.
This study analyzes the US asphalt product industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by asphalt product (e.g., cement, emulsions, cutback, shingles, roofing, modified roofing membranes, standard roofing felts), market (e.g., construction, nonconstruction) and US region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 42 industry players, including Valero Energy, Marathon Petroleum and NuStar Energy.
