Low-Slope Roofing

Low-Slope Roofing

US demand for low-slope roofing is forecast to increase 1.0% annually to 87.0 million squares in 2023. Sales will be supported by the ongoing replacement and repair needs of older or worn roofing materials, as well as by expanding interest in replacing older roofs with more energy efficient types. Healthy gains in the construction of commercial buildings with low-slope roofs will also drive demand growth.
This report covers low-slope roofing demand by product, market, and region. Data are given in squares and in US dollar value.

Low-slope roofing products include:
Bituminous (SBS- and APP-modified bitumen membranes, standard roofing felts)
Plastic (TPO, PVC, other plastic)
Rubber (EPDM, other rubber)
Metal and other products (liquid-applied roofing coatings, tensioned fabric, vegetative)
