SUMMARY OF MAJOR FINDINGS

The $13.0 billion U.S. roofing product industry has seen slower growth since U.S. housing demand turned downward. However, the roofing market remains a growing sector of the domestic building materials industry. Inroads benefited from continued gains in nonresidential construction spending, growing demand for higher value roofing products, and expanding export shipments. These positive developments have given a boost to industry profit margins. Margins have also benefited from the pass through of rising material costs and improved labor productivity. Roofing manufacturers are able to pass through rising material costs due to the concentrated nature of this market. Shipments are expected to decline during 2009 as nonresidential construction spending declines due to the sharp drop in corporate profits. However, Federal government monetary and fiscal stimulus programs are expected to lead to a recovery in shipments beginning in 2010. The Federal government is also expanding programs that promote building energy efficiency. Roofing product manufacturers will benefit from these programs.
