Silicone roof coating systems are ideal for
restoring the existing asphalt, concrete, metal, or single-ply low sloped,
commercial roof. They are environmentally friendly containing high solids, low
VOCs and no hydrocarbon solvents. They also offer moisture-curing system that
can be applied in excess of 40 mils in a single coat without blistering to
restore and repair the existing roof without a costly tear-off. Most businesses
consider silicone roof coating when their roof is aging or has leaks. Repairs
may be recommended before getting on with the coating application. The labor
and materials may range between rates of $0.70 and $1.40 per square foot. One
of the strengths of silicone roof coating restoration is that it is easy to
install and convenient to renew the roof. A silicone coating system usually
costs between US$2 and US$3.50 per square foot. A complete roof tear-off and
installation can cost US$4 -US$10 per square foot, which is comparatively
cost-effecting compared to other roof coatings like acrylic. Restoring a roof
using a low-VOC, cool roof solution such as silicone roof coatings isn’t limited
to improving only the environment inside a building, it can also deliver benefits
to the wider environment. According to the Southern California Air Quality
Management District (SCAQMD), high-VOC architectural coatings largely contribute to the smog levels found in and around cities such as Los Angeles.
Using low-VOC silicone coatings can reduce these emissions and help improve air
quality. By reducing the overall temperature of a building, using a cool roof
coating can also help to reduce the urban heat island effect where cities are
much warmer than rural areas, resulting in less energy use, fewer pollutants
from power sources, and lower smog levels. Thus, the above-mentioned factors in the restoration of the roof using
silicone coating is driving the market growth of Americas silicone roof
coatings during the forecast period.
Americas Silicone Roof Coatings Market Challenges
The Presence of Alternative Roof Coatings Might Hinder the Market
With growing concerns about the adoption of
environmentally safe products, manufacturers of the silicone roof coating market
are gravitating towards manufacturing various roof coatings such as acrylic and
a white pigment, such as titanium dioxide (rutile) roof coating. Acrylic roof
coatings are suitable for use on a variety of substrates including metal,
modified bitumen, built-up roofs, ethylene propylene diene monomer, thermoplastic
polyolefin, and polyvinyl chloride, concrete, and spray polyurethane foam. Silicone
roof coatings are only applicable on flat surfaces whereas acrylic can be used
on steep-slope metal roofs. However, they possess similar tensile strength,
silicones are more durable than acrylics in the long run. Acrylic reflective
roof coatings have proven beneficial in increasing the albedo of buildings.
Besides, their cost-effectiveness is dependent on building design parameters
and location, and the ability of the coating to remain reflective. The
coating’s ability to function successfully is a composite of its initial
reflectivity, dirty pickup resistance, mildew resistance and its ability to
maintain its functional properties after years of in-field service. Furthermore,
the constant development and growth of the acrylic roof coatings in American
region is negatively impacting the growth of Americas silicone roof
coatings. For instance, in 2021 US based
Metacrylics Roof Coatings launched Q COAT, a new fast-setting and ponding water-resistant acrylic roof coating system that is rain resistant in under 30
minutes and can be recoated in as low as 2 hours. On the Other hand, Engineered
Polymer Solutions (EPS) company launched EPS 2252, a high solids acrylic
emulsion designed to adhere to low-energy substrates commonly used in roofing. Thus, the above developments of the
alternatives are hindering the market growth of the Americas silicone roof
coatings market during the forecast period.
Impact of Russia-Ukraine War
With the Russian invasion of Ukraine, U.S.
contractors face a triple threat of war, inflation, and supply chain snarls as
they struggle to source building materials. The war is likely to have multiple
effects on construction materials costs and availability. For instance, Russia
is a major producer of aluminum and copper, which had already surged 33% and
25% respectively, year over year in January 2022 as stated in a report
published by The White House Washington. That means prices of materials forged
from those metals could rise even higher. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor
Statistics, on average, input prices for nonresidential construction surged
more than 24% over the past year. Construction costs for government buildings
were up 13.2% year over year in January 2022, according to the Bureau of Labor
Statistics. The cost for the construction of highways and streets was up 20%,
while steel mill products rocketed up 113%, and plastic construction products
rose 35%. According to the Associated General Contractors of America's analysis
of February Producer Price Index data, most of the materials and commodities
the construction industry depends upon are seeing double-digit year-over-year
cost increases, with steel and diesel seeing some of the largest gains, at
nearly 75% and nearly 58%, respectively. According to the US Department of States,
Russia and Ukraine hold a significant share of America’s commodities trade.
Some commodities Russia supplies extensively include palladium, natural gas,
nickel, and aluminum. So, it comes as no surprise that the commodities sector
touched record highs recently. The prices for nickel and aluminum to their
highest of about 33% and 20% higher in 50 years. Besides, the average price of
on-highway diesel fuel was US$4.05 a gallon, the highest level in almost the past
nine years, with futures for heating oil, a close proxy for diesel, jumping
another 12 cents. Thus, the transportation of construction material increases
accordingly. Thus, hampering the overall market growth of Americas silicone
roof coatings market.
