World Roofing

As Quoted In Zimbio

Gains in roofing demand will be fueled by a major uptick in residential building construction activity as construction industries in major developed nations rebound from their recent weakness.

World demand to rise 3.8% annually through 2016

World demand for roofing materials is forecast to grow 3.8 percent annually through 2016 to 11.7 billion square meters, a substantial acceleration from the lethargic performance of the market during the 2006-2011 period. Gains in demand will be fueled by a major uptick in residential building construction activity as construction industries in major developed nations, such as the US, rebound from their recent weakness. Further growth will be supported by continued gains in developing markets, particularly in Asia.

US, China to jointly account for most gains

Two countries, the US and China, will jointly account for nearly 60 percent of global gains in roofing demand in square meters through 2016. China, the world’s largest market for roofing products in 2011, will continue its trend of strong growth and account for more than 30 percent of world market gains. The US, which experienced a collapse in new housing construction beginning in 2006, will rebound significantly, but in 2016 the US roofing market will still be slightly below 2006 levels.

Strong growth is also expected in a number of smaller roofing markets, including those in India, Indonesia, and South Africa. Although some developed countries will see fast, rebound-fueled growth similar to the US, market gains will typically be slower than in developing areas. In fact, Western Europe will be the slowest growing regional roofing market through 2016.

Bituminous products to post fastest gains

Bituminous products will post the fastest growth through 2016, primarily due to the heavy usage of asphalt shingles in the rebounding US market. The US, which uses shingles far more intensively than most other nations, will account for almost 80 percent of worldwide growth in demand for these products, thanks to a major recovery in new single-family housing construction. Demand for concrete roofing tiles will also show strong growth, particularly in the developing Asia/Pacific region, where concrete tiles account for the largest share of roofing demand.

New residential construction market to lead gains

A recovery in residential construction in major developed countries will allow the new residential roofing market to post the fastest growth through 2016. Growth will be somewhat slower in the nonresidential markets, where a steadier recent historical trend will lead to a less significant recovery effect. Gains in nonresidential roofing demand will still be stronger compared to the 2006 to 2011 period and will be headed by expansion in developing markets throughout the Asia/Pacific and Africa/Mideast regions.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the 9.7 billion square meter world roofing industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by roofing type (e.g., bituminous, tile, metal, fiber cement, elastomeric, plastic), market (residential, nonresidential), world region and for 18 major countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry participants, including GAF Materials, Saint-Gobain and Owens Corning.
