Roofing

As Quoted In Home Channel News

Gains through 2015 will represent a turnaround from the decline experienced between 2005 and 2010, driven by a rebound in building construction expenditures from a low 2010 base.

US demand to rise 5.7% annually through 2015

US demand for roofing is forecast to rise 5.7 percent per year to 263 million squares in 2015, valued at $24.4 billion. This pace represents a turnaround from the outright decline experienced between 2005 and 2010. Advances will be driven by a rebound in building construction expenditures from a depressed 2010 base.

New residential market to see over 20% annual gains

The new residential market will see annual demand gains of over 20 percent through 2015 as housing starts rise from their low 2010 levels. However, the residential reroofing market will continue to account for the largest share of roofing demand in 2015. Those homeowners who delayed or canceled renovation projects -- such as the replacement of roofs -- during the 2007- 2009 recession will go forward with their plans.

Roofing demand in the nonresidential market will experience modest gains, but a bright spot will be the new construction segment, which is expected to advance 7.5 percent annually through 2015. Rebounding office and commercial and institutional construction spending will drive advances. In particular, increasing demand for such structures as educational and healthcare facilities, retail sites and office buildings will promote roofing demand.

Environmentally friendly products to support demand

In both the residential and nonresidential markets, roofing demand will also be supported by consumer interest in environmentally friendly products. Such items as light-colored roofing tiles and membranes, metal roofs, roofing made from recycled materials, vegetative roofs and integrated photovoltaic roofing will see increasing use. Consumers will install these roofing materials to reduce energy costs and minimize urban heatisland effects. Demand will also be supported by the efforts of state and local governments to pass laws mandating the use of these products in new and renovation construction.

Laminated asphalt shingles to double market share

Demand in the dominant asphalt shingle segment will rise over seven percent per year through 2015 as residential building construction expenditures rebound. Laminated asphalt shingles, which accounted for 40 percent of shingle demand in 2000, are projected to total 85 percent of demand in 2015. Demand for laminated shingles will be spurred by their superior aesthetic and performance qualities. In the long term, increasing use of laminated shingles will constrain replacement demand, as these products can have lifespans more than twice that of conventional asphalt shingles.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the 200 million square US roofing industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., asphalt shingles, bituminous low-slope roofing, metal roofing, elastomeric roofing, plastic roofing, roofing tile, wood shingles and shakes), market (residential, nonresidential) and region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 34 industry players, including GAFMC, CertainTeed and Owens Corning.
