155 Pages Catalina Research March 01, 2012 SKU: CATR3810934

The $17.0 billion U.S. roofing product market has been a growing sector of the U.S. construction materials industry over the past fifteen years. Roofing product sales growth benefited from growing nonresidential demand and the replacement or repair of roofs of an aging housing stock. Dollar sales growth also received a boost from the industry’s ability to pass through rising material costs due to the relatively concentrated nature of this market. In addition, roofing industry sales growth and profit margins were aided by the shift to higher-value products such as laminated or multilayered shingles, built-up roofs, and single-ply plastic and rubber membranes. Currently, dollar shipment gains are estimate to strengthen as U.S economic growth accelerates, employment levels rise, and building construction activity moves upward for the first time since 2006. These positive trends are forecast to keep roofing products a growing sector of the U.S. construction material industry over the next five years.
