Roofing Materials Market Size & Trends

The global roofing materials market size was estimated at USD 129.62 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2024 to 2030. Increasing expenditures in the renovation and redevelopment of commercial and residential buildings are expected to propel market growth. Moreover, global construction sector is undergoing limited growth as a consequence of the economic recession caused by the COVID-19 crisis, which has resulted in low investor confidence and a decline in construction activities, thereby the market has also experienced a catastrophic setback in the year 2020.

Global Roofing Materials Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The recent initiatives undertaken by governments of various countries of the world for the development of green buildings have also prompted consumers to carry out roof replacements. The demand for roof installations of solar panels surged in 2020 and is expected to continue increasing over the forecast period as well.

Increased solar panel installations are also expected to lead to a rise in roof replacements, thereby augmenting the demand for roofing materials over the forecast period. The advent of reflective coatings that can be applied to dark-colored roofing materials is expected to have a positive influence on the industry. Reflective coatings have excellent heat reflection properties and help to reduce the overall energy consumption of the building structure.

The power of suppliers is expected to be moderate owing to the presence of a large number of suppliers of raw materials in the market used for developing various roofing materials. A diversified product range, coupled with high-quality services, is anticipated to play a crucial role for suppliers to attain a competitive edge in the market.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The growth stage of the market is moderate and the pace of growth is accelerating. The market is characterized by a high degree of innovation owing to the presence of cool roofing, impact-resistant shingles, green roofing, and solar roofing. Furthermore, the increasing demand for metal roofing has prompted manufacturers to adopt new roofing technologies such as standing seam metal roofing that lead to the development of versatile, architecturally superior, and weatherproof solutions.

Roofing Materials Market Concentration & Characteristics

The industry is subject to various building codes, energy conservation codes, and standards & compliances. For instance, ASTM D3462 is referenced in the International Building Code and International Residential Code as a minimum code requirement for asphalt shingles. Similarly, the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) provides minimum requirements for building envelope and building systems insulation, including wall and roof insulation, windows and doors, mechanical system duct insulation, and water distribution system insulation.

A number of substitutes such as solar roofs, living roofs, restoration coatings, green roofs, and SPF roofs are available in the market. These materials offer better performance characteristics than common roofing materials available in the market. However, factors such as the high maintenance and installation costs of these roofing materials have restricted their demand across the world. Thus, the threat of substitutes in the roofing materials market is anticipated to be low in the coming years.

The market serves a diverse range of end-users across residential and non-residential construction sectors. Therefore, the end use concentration is high in the market. Understanding the specific needs of end users along with providing efficient services to the clients are a few of the major factors for roofing material manufacturers.

Product Insights

The concrete and clay tiles product segment led the market and accounted for largest revenue share of 30.6% in 2023. These tiles offer benefits such as improved aesthetics, durability, and ease of recycling, hence driving the product demand. However, growing consumer preference for stone-coated steel roofing is projected to impede product demand.

The metal roof segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR in terms of revenue from 2024 to 2030. Metal roofs are versatile and can be converted into any desired shape such as shingles or slates to fit the surface structures of different types of buildings. Moreover, the low lifecycle costs, less weight, and fire resistance of metal roofs are expected to drive their global demand over the forecast period.

Application Insights

The residential application segment led the market and accounted for 56.2% of the global revenue share in 2023. Factors such as the increasing global population and rising preference of consumers for single-family housing structures are anticipated to fuel the growth of residential segment of roofing materials market during the forecast period.

Asphalt shingles are used in residential applications by homeowners as they offer ease of installation and require less maintenance as compared to metal and concrete. These are available in a wide array of colors and textures which can offer a wood, cedar, or slate-like appearance and improve aesthetic value of roofing structures.

Global Roofing Materials Market share and size, 2023

Evolving business models, new startups, and an increased need for office space are expected to drive the global demand for non-residential buildings. Furthermore, rising expenditures in the construction of data centers by major technological companies like as Microsoft, Google, and Amazon are expected to boost demand for roofing materials used in non-residential structures.

Rising investments for the renovation and replacement of roofs of commercial buildings, such as hospitals, educational institutions, sports facilities, government offices, and recreational buildings are anticipated to fuel the penetration of roofing materials in various non-residential applications.
