Solar Roofing in the US by Application and Region

Solar Roofing in the US by Application and Region

US demand for solar roofing is projected to rise rapidly through 2022 to $2.2 billion. The recent update to California’s CALGreen Building Code requiring most new and extensively renovated structures in the state to meet zero net-energy requirement going forward will spur advances. Many home and building owners will install solar roofing to meet these code requirements. Demand for solar roofing will also be supported by consumer interest in using these products to generate electricity and lower their utility bills.

This report covers solar roofing demand by application and by region. Data is given for products in dollar value and square terms at both the manufacturers’ level and at the retail level. An alternative demand outlook for a period of conditions highly favorable to promoting solar roofing is presented, as is an outlook projecting growth over a period of less favorable regulatory and technological conditions. Forecasts to 2027 and 2037 are presented to provide a more comprehensive look at this rapidly growing product segment.

Demand is broken out by application:
New Build
Reroofing
And by US Census region:
Northeast
Midwest
South
West

Scope of the Report
This report covers the scope, size, and growth of the US solar roofing market. Historical data is provided for 2017 with forecasts for 2022, 2027, and 2037. Data is provided in dollar value terms and area terms. Also included is an analysis of factors that will promote solar roofing demand and profiles of some industry participants. The study presents forecasts for roof-mount and ground-mount solar electricity generation and the price-per-square of both solar roofing products and related installation and labor costs.
