New innovations like green roofing and eco-friendly roofing are also gaining popularity, especially in countries like the U.S., the U.K. and Japan. Rising investments in the residential construction sector along with eco-friendly roofing innovations will make the residential sector one of the major application sectors for roofing in the coming years.
Properties and Applications
Roofing is the process of applying an external covering on the roof of a building. The external covering can either be self-supporting or be supported by structures underneath it. The major types of roofing materials are:
- Asphalt Shingles
- Wood Shingles
- Green Roofs
Tiles are one of the most popular roofing products, especially due to growing environmental concerns among consumers and developers. Clay and concrete tiles are especially favoured as they are durable and sustainable with the proven positive impact on the environment in the long run. They help in conserving energy by controlling the interior temperature by allowing air to circulate between the loosely arranged tiles leading to a decrease in the usage of air conditioning and conserving electricity. Metal roofing with their low maintenance cost, durability and recyclability have also witnessed significant growth in the market.
Based on applications, the roofing market was dominated by the commercial sector in 2017. Looking forward, roofing will find applications in the residential sector due to the rising number of proposed residential constructions.
Rapid urbanization in the emerging economies has led to the growth of the construction industry which, in turn, is bolstering the market growth. There has been a rising demand for new energy-efficient roofing like green roofing which reduces electricity waste by decreasing air conditioning usage in the long run as well as improving the air quality and increasing the life span of the roof. These green roofs are especially in high demand in the developed nations of North America and Europe in green building constructions. In addition to this, initiatives focussing on energy-efficient projects, such as renovating old buildings wherein old roofs are replaced by new ones, are also driving the market.
Construction of commercial buildings like multiplexes and shopping complexes due to changing lifestyles and increasing urbanization in the developing countries of Asia Pacific, Latin America and Africa have aided the market growth. Asia Pacific is the leading market with growing construction activities in both the residential and commercial sectors, especially in countries like India, China, Indonesia and Vietnam. The Middle East is also a leading roofing market as the governments in the UAE and Qatar have increased their expenditure in commercial and industrial construction projects driving the growth of the roofing market.
