The Global Roofing Tiles Market Size was valued at $30,400.0 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $41,354.9 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 5.2% from 2020 to 2027. Roofing tiles are a type of tiles installed on the roof of the houses and apartments. They are manufactured from materials such as terracotta, clay, concrete, and slate. They are generally fixed with nails hung from the framework of a roof, overlapping the row below it. Roof tiles are preferred in residential construction, owing to its features and properties such as longevity, durability, fire resistance, wind resistance, and low long-term cost.

The roof industry is shifting towards sustainability, using green materials and production techniques. Reclaimed metals and post-client plastics are now being repurposed to make roofing tiles which might be becoming greater popular because of their lower environmental footprint. Businesses are beginning to embody power-green manufacturing techniques and incorporating renewable electricity sources to lower carbon emissions and guard the environment.  


Manufacturers are moving towards composite materials including fiberglass, recycled plastics, and synthetic resins to produce lightweight and long-lasting products. These advanced materials demonstrate outstanding performance in withstanding harsh weather, impact, and UV exposure, outperforming traditional clay or concrete roof materials. Energy-efficient roofing tiles are specifically engineered to deflect solar heat and minimize the transfer of heat into the structure, resulting in decreased energy usage for cooling purposes. By applying reflective coatings and cool roof technologies to these tiles, the adverse impact of the urban heat island effect is mitigated, leading to energy conservation in buildings.   

Moreover, the integration of photovoltaic cells directly into the design of solar roofing tiles allows for the generation of renewable electricity while simultaneously offering weather protection. The upward trend in need for residential as well as commercial properties offers immeasurable marketing opportunities for building materials which are now of different varieties. This includes roofing tiles that have penetrated the market since they can be used in different construction projects and are relatively affordable. The market is also experiencing a growth in the demand of green building materials.

Consumer behavior is changing towards products of higher durability and value, with synthetics benefiting from this trend. These synthetic gets give such safety features as slip resistance for the workers on roof and at the same time come with an instruction line which gives clear guidance on how to correctly install or do something. Smart manufacturing technology is getting greater popularity today leading to increasing levels of automation and data-centric operations. That includes the introduction of a real-time monitoring system, control systems, instantaneously increasing efficiency and productivity alike. 

Roofing tile have low long-term cost but it has high upfront cost. Moreover, cost of installation of roofing system is also high. In addition, installation of roofing tiles requires skilled labor, which involves high wages. These factors are expected to hinder the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Increase in demand for roofing tiles can be attributed to the factors such as population growth and rapid urbanization & industrialization which drive the growth of the construction industry across the globe. In addition, rise in disposable income has resulted into the improvement in lifestyle of consumers across the globe due to which spend on new construction and remodeling of homes has increased, which may prove to be a crucial factor in the development of the market in the near future. 

Further, technological advancement in tile manufacturing and rise in popularity of solar roof tiles provide a lucrative opportunity for the roofing tiles market growth in the near future. For instance, in October 2019, Tesla, Inc., a U.S.-based clean energy company launched Solar Roof tiles V3. The major advantage of solar roof tiles is that it acts as an alternative to conventional solar panels. In addition, it does not need frequent cleaning as there is no gap between the roof and solar roof tiles; thus, no debris can get caught in the system.

The governments of developing and developed countries such as Germany, India, China, Brazil, the UK, the U.S, and others have taken initiatives to provide their citizens with affordable housing, which will boost the growth of the roofing tile market during the forecast period. For instance, in June 2020, the Government of Canada has announced rebate programme of USD 30 million, which will help homeowners to save significant amount of money incurred on construction and renovation projects.
