Drivers – Roof Insulation Market                                                      

  • Increasing demand for residential and commercial applications.

Due to its numerous applications, particularly in the residential sector, the roof insulation market is predicted to record steady growth during the forecast period. The factors which are projected to boost market growth are cost efficiency and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The market for roof insulation tops demand in residential and commercial applications by providing critical benefits such as noise cancellation, reduction in carbon footprint and power and gas bills, and preservation of optimal room temperature in warmer and colder seasons. Isolation forms an important element of roof assemblies and is required to work in conjunction with membrane and structural decks. Nonetheless, growth opportunities resulting from various roof insulation technologies and types are expected to help players heave a sigh of relief. With the ability to curb energy use for heating (heat retention) or cooling purposes by approximately 50% in a residential setting, batts and rolls are considered to be a leading segment of the product type.

Challenges – Roof Insulation Market

  • Availability of alternatives roofing

Asphalt shingles roofing has emerged as a highly popular option for constructing roofs due to their low installation costs. These roofs are, however, vulnerable to extreme weather conditions and their manufacturing process also results in the release of harmful effluents. Moreover, the recycling process of demolished shingles is a costly affair leading to huge landfills of asphalt waste. The ensuing threat to the environment is quite high with the use of such roofing systems. Alternatively, green roofing, metal roofing, synthetic fiber roofing, and others can be included in the roof-building process to create durable, eco-friendly, and weather-resistible roofs. A major concern affecting the construction industry is the shortage of skilled labor, which also has a negative impact on the roofing industry. Major companies within the industry are training employees and also increasing pay scales in a bid to target competent and well-trained workers.
