Asphalt Shingles Market Overview


According to the latest research report, Over the projected period, the asphalt shingles market size is predicted to grow at a CAGR of about 5.8 percent, reaching a market value of more than USD 8 billion.


Asphalt shingles, often known as wall or roof shingles, use asphalt for waterproofing. These are commonly used as roof covers since they are less expensive than other varieties and are simple to install. Such benefits drive overall demand for such shingles in new buildings and refurbishment, particularly in developed countries such as North America and Europe. The harsh temperature conditions in these locations, along with the requirement for aesthetics in the roofing system in the building industry, have led to the development of asphalt shingles.


As a result of increased urbanization, the construction sector has experienced modest development, with an increase in the number of new residential buildings and remodeling/renovation projects. This has fueled the expansion of the asphalt shingle sector. When evaluating the economic growth of any economy, the construction industry has always been an essential indication. Emerging trends like product and material innovation, investments, and others have a direct influence on the building industry's dynamics.

North America is a significant market stakeholder, accounting for roughly 31.0 percent of the market's entire business in 2019.


Value Chain Analysis


According to the reports, the worldwide asphalt shingles market has been classified into three segments: type, material, and application. The market has been divided into three types: heavy laminates, laminates, and strips. The material category is further divided into fiberglass and organic. The application segment is divided into two categories: new construction and renovation/remodeling. The market has been segmented into three types: heavy laminates, laminates, and strips. The fastest-growing sector is strip asphalt shingles. When compared to other asphalt shingles, the rationale is linked to their lightweight and cost-effectiveness. These are composed of one layer of asphalt and have a slate-like flat look.


The sector is further subdivided based on material into fiberglass and organic. Fiberglass held the highest market share in 2017 and is projected to exhibit a similar growth trend over the forecast period. Fiberglass has advantages such as being lower in weight, more fire-resistant, and more durable. Because of the core, which provides an additional level of flexibility, fiberglass stands out as being more durable. The section is divided into two categories: new construction and renovation/remodeling. In 2017, the renovation/remodeling section was the dominating category. The cause is linked to increasing expenditure on renovation and repair operations in both residential and commercial areas. As a result, there is a high demand for asphalt shingles in both the residential and commercial sectors.
