Steel Roofing Market Research, 2032

The Global Steel Roofing Market size was valued at $10.7 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $17.5 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2023 to 2032. Steel roofing is a roofing system primarily made of steel. Steel roofs are available in a wide range of coatings and paints to meet the diverse needs of individual housing. Other than serving the functional purpose that is to prevent the building from weathering elements, the steel roof is also a major part of building architecture.


Historical Overview

The market was analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively from 2020-2021. The Steel Roofing Market grew at a CAGR of around 2.8% during 2020-2021. Most of the growth during this period was derived from Asia-Pacific due to the rise in building construction activity in countries such as China, India, South Korea, and Japan.

Market Dynamics

The construction sector across the world, especially in the Asia-Pacific is growing at a fastest pace. This is largely due to various government-backed construction projects in China, and India. For instance, in October 2021, the Dubai and Indian governments agreed to develop infrastructures such as commercial parks, multipurpose towers, logistics facilities, a clinical college, and a specialized hospital within the state of Jammu. The Jammu and Kashmir state experiences a significant snowfall each year driving the demand for steel roofing with which slopped roof can be constructed easily. In addition, China is set to construct 10 new airports by 2035; thereby, boosting the demand for steel roofing. In addition, through 2040, the worldwide population is estimated to increase to by 9.7 billion by 2050, with the urban populace growing by way over 40%. Population boom and rapid urbanization are anticipated to definitely influence the development of residential and industrial buildings. This provides opportunities for the implementation of steel roofing; thereby, positively influencing the steel roofing market growth.

Moreover, steel roofing has various advantages over other roofing types. Steel roofing is easy to install as compared to timber structure, which is a labor-intensive roofing method. Furthermore, steel roofs have higher strength and have longer life of nearly 20-30 years, making it a more desirable alternative. When compared to other metal roofings, steel roofing is cheaper, ranging from 30-50% percent cheaper than copper and zinc, and around 20% cheaper than aluminum roofing. Other benefits of steel include high resistance to adverse weather conditions, resistance to insects, pests, or parasites and moisture. Moreover, key players are taking initiatives to promote their steel roofing offerings in the world. For example, in May 2022, Tata BlueScope, a major manufacturer of steel roofing launched a new campaign for its flagship retail brand DURASHINE under the tagline of “VIP Waali Feeling”. It is a Pan India campaign targeted towards a majority of the India population.

However, fluctuations in the prices of steel negatively impact the profitability of the manufacturers. Thus, price fluctuation of raw materials is anticipated to restrain the market growth. Moreover, due to global warming, countries across the world are shifting towards sustainability across industries including the construction sector. Steel roofing is known for enhancing energy performance by providing thermal insulation, which eventually helps in reducing the electricity bill of the building. Thus, an increase in the construction of green buildings is a steel roofing market opportunity for growth.

The Steel Roofing Market has witnessed various obstructions in its regular operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic and inflation. Earlier, the global lockdowns resulted in reduced construction and industrial activities, eventually leading to reduced demand for steel roofing from the construction and industrial sectors. However, COVID-19 has subsided, and the major manufacturers in 2023 have been performing well. Contrarily, the rise in global inflation is a new major obstructing factor for the entire industry. The inflation, which is an instantaneous result of the Ukraine-Russia war and few long-term effects of the Corona virus pandemic, has introduced volatility in the prices of raw materials used for construction that's a major end user of steel roofing. In addition, inflation is expected to get worse within the coming years, as the possibility of the finishing of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia is less.

Analyst Review

Steel roofing is undeniably a standout choice, offering a trifecta of durability, longevity, and sustainability. In the face of harsh weather conditions, steel roofs provide unparalleled protection, boasting a lifespan of 50 years or more, making them a judicious long-term investment for homeowners and businesses alike. The allure of steel roofing extends beyond its robustness; its low maintenance demands and energy-efficient options contribute to reduced ownership costs. This becomes particularly relevant when compared to traditional roofing materials like asphalt shingles, which may require more frequent replacements. The non-combustible nature of steel adds an extra layer of safety, especially crucial in areas prone to wildfires. Its lightweight properties not only simplify construction but also open avenues for innovative designs, often reducing the need for extensive structural support. Furthermore, the recyclability of steel aligns seamlessly with eco-conscious building practices, making it not only a resilient roofing option but also a sustainable one, echoing the increasing environmental awareness of modern times.
