San Jose, California (PRWEB) January 13, 2015 -- Follow us on LinkedIn – Roofing, defined as an upper structure of a building, is designed to provide protection against heat, cold, rain and other environmental elements. Asphalt shingles, wood, tile, slate, and metal represent conventional roofing materials that are commonly used in most constructions. Urban sprawl, caused by the migration of population from rural to urban areas and the resulting pressure on housing infrastructure is helping spur demand opportunities in the roofing market. Cities are increasingly being built to accommodate their growing population, with about 7 out of 10 people in the world projected to live in cities by 2050. In addition to urbanization, the market is also poised to benefit from technology innovations targeted at improving energy efficiency and eco-friendly attributes of roofing products.
Rising standard of living, particularly in developing countries, is encouraging building renovation projects, while tightening safety regulations worldwide are triggering the need to replace old roofs with newer advanced roofing solutions. All of these factors bode well for market growth in the medium-term. Green building certifications are spurring the need for eco-friendly roofing, given that the building sector accounts for about 40% of total energy consumption worldwide. Rising air pollution, loss of biodiversity and urban heat island effect are leading governments across the world to focus on green roofs as a means to reduce environmental degradation. Green roofs aid in reduction of solar heat absorption, elimination of pollutants from air, and provide superior acoustic insulation. Especially poised to gain are eco-friendly roofing products, such as, light coloured tiles and membranes; roofing products made from recycled materials; integrated photovoltaic roofing; vegetative roofs; and advanced shingles made from fibreglass technology.
