The construction industry is growing at a significant rate, since the past few years, in developing countries. The rising population demands better infrastructural & road facilities along with housing. Furthermore, the increasing demand for better hospitals, bridges, dams, reservoirs, flyovers, and other infrastructural needs is propelling the global construction industry growth on a large scale. The use of roofing underlayment in the construction to protect buildings from water, ice, UV radiations, moisture, and other adversely affecting climatic conditions, such as wind and heavy rainfall, will further fuel the market demand.

Non-residential and commercial building contractors are becoming aware of the significance of roofing components in construction owing to the increase in adverse climatic conditions such as heavy rainfalls, cyclones, and increased moisture in the air across coastal areas. This trend is expected to drive the use of roofing underlayment across coastal areas in the face of hazardous climatic mishaps. The adoption of building codes by contractors to install water-resistant and flame-resistant underlayment in commercial zones is expected to further support roofing underlayment market revenue.

High Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions associated with the manufacturing of roofing underlayment are anticipated to hamper the industry statistics. Particulate Matter (PM) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are emitted in the atmosphere, causing moderate to severe hazards to human beings and the overall environment. With industry players becoming conscious of VOC emissions and their negative effects on the environment, manufacturers are working on improving the production of roofing underlayment, which is becoming more environmental-friendly and emitting fewer VOCs into the atmosphere.

Asphalt-saturated felt to dominate the market growth

The asphalt-saturated felt segment accounted for more than 52% of the roofing underlayment market share in 2020. Roofing underlayment is used for its various properties such as protecting the sheathing from moisture absorption & adding weather protection by obstructing the entry of wind-driven rain below the shingles and into the house. Furthermore, asphalt-saturated felt is used in both residential housing complexes and commercial spaces.

The roofing underlayment market from residential construction is set to exceed USD 29 billion by 2027. Global residential construction is growing at an unprecedented rate and is estimated to keep growing. According to the World Green Building Council, the world is projected to build over 230 billion square meters in new construction. With the start of new constructions, permits and completions that were stuck up over the last few years are being cleared. Growth in residential construction is impelled by the growing population, the settling down of millennials, and the rising employment & income levels. Mortgage interest rates and migration will contribute to the segment growth.
