Based on the product type, the global roofing underlayment market is segmented as follows:
- Asphalt-saturated Felt
- Rubberized Asphalt
- Non-bitumen SYNTHETIC
One of the most common types of underlayment used in residential steep-slope applications is black, asphalt-saturated felt paper. Felt underlayment may be made from either an organic or fiberglass substrate, although the organic is much more common. It is also called “organic” underlayment because it has a cellulose base. In the future, asphalt-saturated felt underlayment would probably be used less. Asphalt is basically the residue left over from the process of refining crude oil. As oil prices have increased, refining techniques have been developed that extract the maximum amount of high-quality products from the crude. The non-bitumen synthetic roofing underlying segment accounted for a share of over 35% in terms of volume in the global market in 2016 and is expected to remain dominant from 2017 to 2025.
Asphalt makes for one of the most critical raw materials for the manufacture of bituminous roofing underlying materials, which accounts for the second largest share in the global market in terms of product varieties. Manufacturers of bituminous roofing underlying materials face a significant challenge in ensuring the continuous availability of high-quality asphalt. A perpetual rise in the cost of manufacturing techniques is also leading to a substantial rise in the overall costs of underlying roofing materials.
Based on the application, the global roofing underlayment market is segmented as follows:
The non-residential sector is the largest contributor to the global roofing underlying materials market, accounting for a share of nearly 44% of the global market in 2016. The demand for underlying roofing materials in the commercial sector will be driven primarily by a sustained rise in replacement and maintenance activities.
For the purpose of this study, the global roofing underlayment market is categorized into:
- North America (United States and Canada)
- Europe (U.K., Germany, rest of Europe)
- Asia Pacific (China, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and the Rest of Asia Pacific)
- Latin America (LATAM)
- Middle East and Africa (MEA)
Due to a thriving construction industry and an increasing number of new proprietors in the region’s urban areas, Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing regional market, accounting for 41% of the global roofing underlying materials market in 2016. The market for underlying roofing materials is also expected to expand at the fastest pace in Asia Pacific as compared to other regional markets. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% from 2017 to 2025. China will continue to be the leading country for the roofing underlying materials market in Asia Pacific throughout the said period and will account for a nearly 58 percent share in the regional market by 2025. In Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa, the markets for underlying roofing materials will show vigorous growth and will benefit the most from developments in the residential construction sector.
