Roofing

This study analyzes US demand for low-slope roofing products by product, market, and geographic region. Historical data for 2009, 2014, and 2019, and forecasts for 2024 and 2029 are provided in both area terms (squares) and value terms (US dollars) at the manufacturers’ level.

Low-slope roofing demand is segmented by the following product types:

  • bituminous – including polymer-modified bitumen membranes and standard roofing felt
  • plastic single-ply membranes – comprising thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and other membranes and plastic panels
  • rubber – comprising ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) and other rubber formulations
  • metal – including standing seam roofing and corrugated and smooth panels
  • other products – including spray polyurethane foam (SPF), liquid-applied roof coatings, tensioned fabric, and vegetative(green) roofing

Excluded from the scope of the study are such related products as roofing underlays, flashings, and coatings used as repair and restorative compounds and used as a structure’s primary roofing material.

Demand for commercial roofing is also analyzed by market segment, including:

  • new commercial construction
  • commercial reroofing
  • new residential construction
  • residential reroofing

The commercial and residential low-slope roofing markets were further segmented by building or housing type.
