However, the rising cost associated with making bituminous roofing, mainly attributed to volatility in cost of asphalt, is expected to hinder the roofing underlying materials market to an extent. The constant availability of good quality asphalt is a key concern for manufacturers of bituminous roofing underlying materials. The availability of cheap substitutes will stimulate many manufacturers in the building and construction industry in developing markets, negatively impacting the overall market.

Nevertheless, the demand for advanced roofing construction materials that are energy efficient has propelled the demand for eco-friendly materials, thereby boosting the market. Furthermore, recent advancements in solar roofing technology have opened up exciting opportunities for market players. In addition, the growing popularity of non-bitumen synthetic roofing is expected to open up lucrative growth avenues for market players across various regions.
