What are the Prominent Driving Factors of the Cool roof Coatings Business?

As the housing and commercial construction activities continue to soar, the effect of “urban heat island” is getting worse against the backdrop of dark colored structured and streets, and lack of air-conditioned and green space.

This has further supplemented energy demand and relevant costs in structures of commercial and residential sectors alike.

However, several cool roof coating programs are being carried out worldwide, which focus on mitigating the heat trapped by working with community partners.

NYC Cool Roofs, Toronto’s Eco-Roof Incentive Program, Repeal and Replace of Green Roof Law in Denver, and Initiative of India’s national government on sustainable cooling through National Cooling Action Plan, are some of the key examples of cool roof programs being carried out worldwide currently.

Such initiatives for cool roof coating allude to a transformative trend to battle climate change and global warming.

Renovation of existing infrastructure across developed and developing countries globally increases the demand for waterproofing membranes. With the growing adoption of waterproofing membrane, the requirement for roof coatings thereby cool roof coatings increasing at a steady pace.

How Silicone Cool Roof Coating Gaining Immense Significance?

As per the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), nearly 80% of energy conservation in a single-story building can be obtained through its roof.

It further states that for urban areas, the roofing constitutes approximately 70% of surface area in urban settlements. Therefore cool roof coatings can play a major role in energy conservation through initiatives by local authorities to carry out cool roof coating programs in the cities.

As silicone cool roof coatings reflect over 90% of sunlight, and work as isolation between the roof substrate and the incident sunlight, these are fast gaining prominence in the market.

Additionally, relatively higher moisture resistance of silicone cool roof coating compared to asphalt and acrylic products will further underpin their demand in the cool roof coating market.

Why Low-Slope Roof Type is the Most Prominent for Revenue Generation?

Demand for cool roof coatings for low-sloped roof application continued its positive momentum over the past half-decade and is anticipated to dominate the global market with a significant growth rate of 7.8% over the forecast period.

Owing to the extensive use of low-sloped roofs in commercial and industrial buildings globally, the demand for cool roof coatings tends to increase at a steady pace. Increasing penetration of low-sloped roofing systems is primarily driven by the growing concern regarding the importance of green building construction in both industrial and commercial areas.

Of total consumption of cool roof coating across the globe, low-slope type roofs consume over 59% and are anticipated to keep on dominating the market over the forecast period.
