Ducker Forecasts 6% Growth for Low Slope Roofing Market

  • Ducker forecasts the low-slope roofing market will reach $1.8 billion in 2017 (manufacturer market value, roofing material only)
  • Aging stock of facilities and replacement rate of 20 year membranes in the market; weather and occupancy upgrades
  • Energy cost driving conversion to some single-ply technology (PVC/TPO) vs. asphalt-based systems
  • Increased focus on sustainable building design and super-insulated roofs add to system value (typical R20 of insulation migrating to R60)
  • Construction market and infrastructure activity continuing to expand through 2019
  • TPO (value) and PVC (premium) share trajectory will exceed EPDM (poorer energy performance)
  • Extensive capacity has been added as competitors expand offerings and address regional demand conditions with 11 new plants throughout North America since 2012
