Roofing Materials Market: Introduction 

A roof is one of the essential part of any constructional structure. The major requirement in any roofing system is durability, strength and aesthetic appeal as well. Furthermore, selection of roofing material is highly correlated with the geographic location which decides the type of material to be used. For instance, Shingles are primarily used in the U.S. owing to the climatic conditions whereas they are less seen in Asia Pacific region. Furthermore, aesthetic design is also one of the key factor for selection of a roofing material. Nowadays, apart from durability as strength, demand for roofing materials which are energy efficient is also increasing. Evolving research activities in roofing and technological development is one of the key factor which is anticipated to boost the demand. Currently, the construction industry is witnessing decent growth with resurge in residential construction activities indorsing relatively higher growth across the globe. Furthermore, increasing re-roofing activities, especially in matured economies is also one of the key factor which would impact the demand of roofing materials over the forecast period. Overall, the global roofing market is anticipated to grow at significant pace over the forecast period owing to growth in constructional activities, especially residential construction.
