This study analyzes the US market for solar roofing, which is defined as those products that serve as a structure’s primary roofing material while also producing solar-generated electricity. This study considers both solar roofing products equipped with photovoltaic (PV) modules and those roofing products on the same structure that do not feature those components.

Solar roofing products covered by the study include those that resemble:

  • asphalt shingles
  • roofing tiles
  • slate roofing

Demand for solar roofing is presented at the end user level in value terms (US dollars) and in area terms (squares). The study also looks at demand in terms of the electricity generated by those products with PV modules, with electricity generation discussed in terms of kilowatt hours (kWh). The cost of solar roofing products and their installation costs are also measured in both squares and kWh. Historical data for 2017 and forecasts for 2022, 2027, and 2037 are presented for national demand in value, area, and roof-mount electricity generation (which includes both solar panels and solar roofing), and for regional demand in squares. The study also identifies solar roofing manufacturers and discusses factors that will affect demand for these products going forward.
