Roofing Underlayment Market
The global roofing underlayment market size was worth around USD 26.60 Billion in 2022 and is predicted to grow to around USD 40.06 Billion by 2030 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of roughly 5.42% between 2023 and 2030.
The report analyzes the global roofing underlayment market drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the roofing underlayment industry.
Roofing underlayments are construction materials that are laid or installed beneath shingles or any other types of roofing materials on a roof. The primary purpose of installing a roofing underlayment is to provide an additional layer of protection against environmental or other factors such as moisture penetration, rain, or snow. The material is typically made of a felt-like material which is a textile product that has a soft and fuzzy texture. The felt-like material is further reinforced with polyester or fiberglass for added protection. When used as a roof covering, it can be used over the roof deck or installed beneath the shingles. It can also be used along with other roofing materials such as metal, tile, or slate. The industry deals with the manufacturing, storage, and distribution of roofing underlayments for residential and non-residential purposes. During the forecast period, the growth outlook is expected to be positive.
Increasing home development projects to drive market growth
The global roofing underlayment market is projected to grow owing to the increasing number of home development projects across the world. This includes the entire real estate sector in urban and rural areas along with renovation or architectural projects. With the rising number of people moving to urban cities for a better life and due to higher job opportunities, the urban real estate market in certain countries is currently soaring at a high rate. Regional governments along with private construction companies are investing large amounts of money in urban city planning and the construction of buildings to meet the housing needs of the people. In addition to this, rural areas are also registering a high rate of home development projects influenced by rising disposable income and a growing number of dual-income families. In developed regions, the rising rate of renovation activities could lead to higher demand for roof underlayment.
Changing prices of raw materials to restrict market growth
One of the key reasons for restricted roofing underlayment industry growth is the fluctuating prices of the raw material used in the manufacturing or roofing underlayment. Some of these sources include products such as asphalt and petroleum. Both of these items are currently in a state of price volatility as the world is witnessing a shift in political power dynamics resulting in changed international trade relations. In the years to come, the price of petroleum is expected to undergo several stages of fluctuations that directly impact the production of roofing underlayment.
Development of innovative materials to provide growth opportunities
The global roofing underlayment market is expected to witness higher growth opportunities owing to the increasing development of new and innovative roofing underlayment materials. Some examples include bio-based or recycled materials and this could lead to higher revenue during the forecast period as companies may find ways of mitigating the problems arising due to fluctuating prices of petroleum. In addition to this, the growing demand for eco-friendly products could assist in greater chances of higher growth if companies can develop sustainable materials for roofing underlayment.
Regulatory compliance to challenge market growth
Roofing underlayment materials are subject to intense regulatory compliance and building codes. This makes the roofing underlayment industry highly dynamic and customer or client needs may change from one region to another. Moreover, ensuring compliance with these rules can be tricky and failure to do so can land companies in legal trouble. This greatly restricts the entry of new market players as companies may find it exhausting to comply with ever-changing building codes and regulatory measures.
The global roofing underlayment market is segmented based on application, product, and region.
Based on application, the global market segments are commercial construction, residential construction, and non-commercial construction. In 2022, the industry witnessed the highest growth in the residential construction segment as the world is witnessing a surge in demand for effective home solutions as the global population continues to rise. In residential construction, roof underlayment has wide applications. It is used between the roof deck and the shingles where it provides an added layer of protection. Additionally, it is highly recommended in homes that are situated near valleys or other areas that have high water flow since such homes are more prone to water leakage. They are also used around roof penetration such as chimneys and vents. As per the US Bureau of Economic Analysis, the construction industry contributed USD 842.7 billion to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2020.
Based on product, the roofing underlayment industry divisions are non-bitumen synthetic, asphalt-saturated felt, and rubberized asphalt. The most commonly used product is the asphalt-saturated felt and hence showed maximum CAGR during the forecast period. The growth was mainly due to the decade-old dominance of the product over its counterpart. It provides an excellent layer of protection against moisture and water making it highly desirable. In recent times, non-bitumen synthetics have also gained huge popularity since they can withstand harsh weather conditions and have a longer lifespan. On average, the cost of asphalt-saturated felt for roofing underlayment ranges from $0.15 to $0.40 per square foot.
