The global roofing chemicals market is projected to reach USD 160.25 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2016 to 2026. Roofing chemicals are experiencing a high demand from the construction sector in the Asia-Pacific region. Expansions and new product development activities undertaken by different companies for more energy efficient solutions are the key factors driving the growth of the global roofing chemicals market. Roofing chemicals helps in maintaining lower temperatures in the interiors of buildings by reflecting the sunlight on roofs. This reduces the energy consumption required to cool buildings. New innovative roofing chemicals have low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions that comply with standards set by regulatory bodies in the European Union, such as Regulation, Evaluation, Authorization and the Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and Restriction of Substances Directive (RoHS).

The asphalt/bituminous roofing chemical is projected to be the leading type in the roofing chemicals market from 2016 to 2026. The bituminous roofing chemical is a sticky, black and highly viscous chemical used for coating and for making bituminous shingles. High tensile strength, competitive life cycle cost, and improved surface texture makes bituminous the leading type of roofing chemical among others. The asphalt/bituminous roofing chemical is mainly used in commercial and industrial buildings such as warehouses, factory sheds, which increases its demand in the market. The growth in the commercial sector during the forecast period is expected to drive the asphalt/bituminous market.

The bituminous roofing application is the largest application of roofing chemicals globally. Bituminous roofs are more durable compared to other types of roofing and are hence preferred. The demand for the bituminous roofing application from the Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period. This is due to the increasing industrialization, and the growing manufacturing sector.

The Asia-Pacific region was the fastest-growing market for roofing chemicals, in terms of value, in 2015 and this trend is expected to continue till 2026. China, India, South Korea, and Japan are the major consumers in the Asia-Pacific region. The demand for roofing chemicals is primarily driven by the increasing population & urbanization in these countries. The increase in population and urbanization creates a higher demand for buildings, and as a result drives the roofing chemicals market. India is a major growing economy in the world, and the demand for roofing chemicals is expected to increase during the forecast period.

Roofing Chemicals Market

Though the global roofing chemicals market is growing at a fast pace, a few factors are hampering the growth of this market. The higher installation cost is a major restraint in the growth of the global roofing chemicals market.
