Asphalt Roofing Materials

Asphalt Roofing Materials

The U.S. asphalt roofing material market turned sluggish in 2013 and 2014 after experiencing relatively strong growth over the previous five years. Growth was led by increasing demand for roofing asphalt, laminated or multilayered asphalt strip, asphalt and tar singles, and saturated asphalt and tar building ply felts. Weak prices contributed to slower sales gains in recent years.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Asphalt Roofing Materials. This First Look also provides data on product line sales, price trends, exports and imports, end-use market purchases, factors driving demand, plant operating ratios and profitability, and the competitive environment.
