The North America steel roofing market size was estimated at USD 2.58 billion in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.5% over the forecast period. Increasing awareness regarding green building products in the construction industry is anticipated to positively impact growth.

Steel roofs are long-lasting and durable building materials that provide significant energy saving to end-use applications. In addition, they are made from a high percentage of recycled steel, which, in turn, plays a significant role in attaining sustainable roofing. Increased consumption of flexible, lightweight, and recyclable roofing materials is expected to fuel the demand for steel roofs in North America.

U.S. steel roofing market

The increased growth rate of the industrial sector in the U.S. is likely to augment the demand for steel roofs over the forecast period. Furthermore, the product demand is expected to witness rapid growth owing to the rising focus on improving energy efficiency in the residential and commercial sectors.

Increasing GDP coupled with the trend of single-family houses in North American countries is expected to propel construction activities, thus, positively influencing the demand for steel roofing. Rising demand for high-tech office buildings and sophisticated housing systems is expected to drive renovation activities in Canada, thereby, impacting the product demand significantly.

North America's construction industry is anticipated to witness rapid growth on account of the rising number of people migrating from developing regions to North America. In addition, increasing construction spending in Mexico owing to population expansion and strong economic and industrial developments is expected to boost the product demand in North America.

The factors hampering market growth include fluctuating steel prices globally as well as the susceptibility of structures to corrosion and low thermal resistivity. Furthermore, the unavailability of skilled labor and advanced technologies are projected to restrict market growth over the forecast period.

Application Insights

The demand for steel roofing in North America is anticipated to witness significant growth in the industrial construction sector on account of the high strength of the product. In addition, an increasing number of manufacturing facilities in Mexico is expected to boost product demand in the forthcoming years.

Recovering residential construction industry is likely to support new residential roofing projects and re-roofing activities, thus, boosting the regional product demand. The residential construction segment is anticipated to witness high product penetration owing to increasing awareness of energy-efficient construction, government regulations for green building materials, and the requirement for the renovation of old buildings.

Commercial constructions require a large number of roofing products for thermal insulation and to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the building. These buildings require durable materials to tackle extreme weather conditions, and hence, steel roofing is extensively used owing to its properties such as lightweight, durability, and flexibility.

The growing e-commerce industry has resulted in an increased demand for storage, which has resulted in boosting the number of warehouses in the region. This, in turn, is expected to augment the product demand for industrial buildings at a CAGR of 4.3% in terms of revenue from 2019 to 2025.

Regional Insights

The improved energy efficiency of buildings coupled with the increasing penetration in commercial and residential sectors in North America is anticipated to augment market growth. Furthermore, the development of the construction sector and increased government spending on industrial and commercial sectors are expected to boost the product demand over the forecast period.

Factors such as changing lifestyles and growing demand for high-rise luxury buildings and hotels to develop the tourism sector are expected to continue supporting construction spending in Mexico. The market revenue in the country is expected to reach USD 148.7 million owing to an increasing construction market due to a growing labor pool, ample energy reserves, and sizeable access to energy reserves.

The rising middle-class population in Mexico is expected to drive the requirement for offices, shops, factories, and homes, thereby, augmenting construction industry growth in industrial, residential, as well as commercial sectors. Furthermore, upcoming construction projects near the Mexico-U.S. border are anticipated to boost the product demand.

The growth in Canada is attributed to the increased construction activities in the country, due to urbanization, rising population, and growing immigration rate. However, the uncertainty surrounding Canada’s trading relationship with the U.S. is expected to have a negative impact on the country’s economic growth over the forecast period.
