Roofing Materials (Industrial Report) - UK - October 2014

“Market conditions for roofing materials and contractors notably improved as the year progressed in 2013, and 2014 is witnessing a substantial increase in demand. The magnitude of the growth in 2014 is not sustainable, but increases in demand will continue to be a market feature over the next five years, with conditions significantly stronger than the flat market conditions that followed the economic downturn. ”
– Terry Leggett, Senior Analyst

This report answers the following questions:

• How will the market develop over the next five years?
• What will be the key market drivers?
• How are different materials being affected by the end-use market and other factors?
• Which product sectors now hold the best prospects?

This report analyses the UK market for roofing materials used in the industrial construction, commercial construction and house building sectors.

The primary types of roof construction analysed in this report include:

  • Flat roofing
  • Metal roofing
  • Pitched roofing

In the pitched roofing sector, this report concerns the area covered, rather than sales, which is a common practice in the industry. Tiles and slates are typically over-layered in such applications, and sales are estimated to be approximately 30% higher than coverage.

The materials covered in this report include:

  • Roofing felts
  • Single ply PVC
  • Asphalt
  • Steel roofing
  • Aluminium roofing
  • Clay tiles
  • Concrete tiles
  • Slates

The market for roof lights has also been included in the report, with roof glazing systems comprising a variety of different forms, including domes, pyramids and more conventional roof lights.
