To identify the top vendors, Technavio’s market research analysts have considered the top players contributing to the overall revenue of this market. The report includes market forecast of the roofing market based on product type (bituminous roofing, metal roofing, tile roofing, and other), and end-users (residential, commercial, and retrofit/renovation).

The analysis in this report is based on vendor briefings, interviews with industry experts, and telephone and online surveys. Technavio analysts have also presented a breakdown of market shares by the leading regions, including APAC, Americas, and EMEA.

Vendor competitive landscape:

Vendors of the global roofing market operate in a highly competitive environment. The market is dominated by large global vendors such as Braas Monier, Etex, Owens Corning, Saint Gobain, and Wienerberger. These players have vast geographical presence with huge production facilities located worldwide. Nonetheless, there is a sizeable number of small regional vendors dominating the market.

Due to the increase in demand for building roofing globally, manufacturers are focusing on incorporating new technologies into the roofing segment. This enables them to differentiate their products from those of existing vendors. Vendors today are focusing highly on solar and TPO roofing because of their energy-efficiency properties, thus increasing the competition in the market. In addition, owing to the rise in demand for roofing, vendors are also investing in expanding production units to other geographical areas.
