Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC398

Introduction

The process of applying liquid coatings on a roof surface for the purpose of waterproofing is known as liquid roofing. Liquid roofing can be done on any surface, for instance flat, domed or pitched. The coating is applied on the roof surface to protect it from weather conditions. Glass-reinforced plastic is the main component used for liquid roofing. Asphalt, concrete, bitumen and felt are the other materials used in the liquid roofing process. Liquid roofing ensures the protection of roof surface for as long as 25 years.

Market Dynamics

The global liquid roofing market is growing at a significant pace owing to the growth in construction activities around the world. Moreover, the need for energy efficient buildings also paves the growth ways for the liquid roofing market. The liquid roofing process is also cost-efficient for the users as well as suppliers, hence supporting the market for liquid roofing. However, the fluctuating raw material prices used in liquid roofing process hinders the market growth. The high cost of some raw materials used in liquid roofing such as elastomeric membrane restricts the market growth. The major growth opportunity for manufacturers of liquid roofing lies in the emerging economies such as India, China, Brazil, Argentina, UAE, Saudi Arabia and parts of Africa, where the government policies supports the infrastructure growth.

Market Classification and Overview

The global liquid roofing market can be segmented based on type, end-user, and region. Polyurethane coatings, acrylic coatings, bituminous coatings, EPDM rubbers, elastomeric membrane, epoxy coatings and silicone coatings are the major type of liquid roofing used in the market. Among the various type of liquid roofing present in the market, elastomeric membranes accounted for the largest share in the liquid roofing market in 2015. Elastomeric membrane is widely used in construction sector for the protection of roof surface from extreme weather conditions. Commercial buildings, residential buildings, industrial facilities and public infrastructures are the various end-users of liquid roofing for the protection and maintenance of roof structure. The market for liquid roofing was majorly dominated by residential building sector. Increasing standard of living drives the residential building sector, thereby increasing the market for liquid roofing market.

The market for liquid roofing is segmented into regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle-East and Africa (MEA). Asia-Pacific was largest revenue contributor for the global liquid roofing market. Some of the key revenue contributing countries in the region include Australia, India, Japan, and China. Continuously growing population, increase in the standard of living and rapid industrialization are some of the key factors driving the growth of liquid roofing in the region. Cheap labor cost, increased working hour and availability of raw materials are also supporting the growth of liquid roofing market in Asia-Pacific. The demand for liquid roofing materials in North America is likely to grow during the forecast period due to growing awareness about green building concept. The market for liquid roofing in Europe is projected to be slightly less than the other regions because of the mature construction industry. LAMEA region is also likely to witness a good growth majorly because of the growing infrastructure activity supported by the government.
