Roofing products are generally referred to the products those form the outermost layer of a building or structure. The outer layer of roof shows variations and high deviation in the properties which generally depends upon the type of supporting structure and overall availability of material. Various raw materials used in the manufacturing of roofing materials include natural products including slates and thatches as well as commercially available products including plastic sheeting and tiles. Roofing materials are generally installed on the top of a water resistant secondary material called as underlayment. Such products mainly provide shelter using several natural materials. Roofing products are manufactured from a wide variety of materials such as metal, bitumen, clay and cement among others. Roofing products are most commonly used in a wide array of applications including non-residential construction, residential construction as well as commercial construction such as offices, buildings, educational institutes, hotels and public outlets. A roof is considered to be a part of a building envelope and is the outer covering placed on the uppermost part of any shelter or building to provide protection against weather and animals.
Some of the emerging trends posing a direct and a significant impact on the global roofing market include increasing use of eco-friendly materials in roofing, development of energy efficient cool roofs as well as increasing demand for new generation single ply technology in commercial roofing processes. Increasing development of new commercial buildings such as shopping malls and hotels has significantly boosted the overall demand for more efficient and improved roofing solutions. In addition, the rising concerns regarding energy consumption in buildings has led the building owners and construction firms to invest sums of amount in energy efficient roofing procedures. Increasing need for affordable homes is another key factor expected to bolster the growth of global roofing market over the forecast period. Rapid rise in urban population is in turn attracting large investments by governments for the development of residential buildings especially in developing economies such as Russia, India and Nigeria. Also, rapid growth of global construction industry as well as increase in construction activities including institutions, amusement parks and hospitals owing to the rapid urbanization are some other major factors anticipated to boost the overall demand for roofing in the foreseeable years. However, some key factors such as high cost of production of roofing materials coupled with huge installation costs are estimated to hinder the growth of global roofing market.
