Residential buildings are expected to witness the highest growth due to rise in popularity of eco-friendly roofing technologies and increased investments in the real estate sector.
Top Impacting factors
Rising Construction Industry
Booming construction sector in developing countries and technological advancements boost the adoption of roofing systems, worldwide. China, India, and the Middle East have exhibited higher growth rate as compared to the developed countries in terms of construction and is expected to grow at a prominent rate in the future. Renowned construction firms have focused on expansion in the developing countries. At present, emerging concerns over control of asbestos have resulted in the implementation of stringent norms by various governments to adopt new roofing materials such as concrete tile, clay tile, and others. The U.S., U.K., and Japan are some of the countries that have focused on building eco-friendly roofing systems, which would foster the growth of the roofing market.
High initial investments
The capital cost required for the set up and integration of the roofing system is high and limits their adoption in residential and commercial buildings. The initial cost is around $150 to $1600 per square feet because of long-term durability of the material. Metal roofs can be costly but last longer than conventional roofs. With emerging novel technologies, and competition in the market, the capital costs associated with roofing system is expected to reduce in future.
Growth in Urbanization
The global rate of urbanization is on a continuous rise due to better living standards. The market for roofing is expanding rapidly with industrialization and growth in residential & commercial infrastructure developments. The World Health Organization reported that 54% of the world’s population resided in urban areas in 2014 and this is expected to increase to 66% by 2050. The increase in urbanization in the emerging economies is expected to boost construction activities significantly, thereby fueling the demand for roofing products over the next few years. In addition, the rise in the number of non-residential projects in the emerging economies, such as hotels, schools, hospitals, and industrial buildings, is expected to increase the demand for bituminous roofing in the coming years.
With the introduction of new roofing technologies, energy efficient roofing systems are available in the market. New technologies, such as green roofing, increase roof life and safety, improve air quality, and reduce noise and cost of air-conditioning. Introduction of advanced technologies results in aesthetics improvement, which would strengthen the market in the future. The effect of new technologies is moderate, but its impact is expected to increase in the future, owing to the rise in adoption of bituminous roofing in residential and commercial buildings.
