Dublin -- Research and Markets has added a report on the "Flat Roofing Market - UK 2010-2014" to its list. This is the first edition of this survey, and R&M says it "provides a comprehensive analysis of the market and the prominent players within it." The market's recent performance (in membranes & felts and insulation sectors) is assessed, covering the main influences.
Market sizes are estimated by value and area installed, as well as product mixes within the two sectors. Key suppliers are identified and the distribution structure reviewed. The report also provides a forecast of market prospects up to 2014.
The performance of the flat roofing market is closely linked to that of the construction (both new build and refurbishment/maintenance-- RMI) and house-building sectors, as well as the economy overall, says Dublin-based R&M. Most buildings with flat roofs are non-residential, such as logistics centres, supermarkets, factories and airports. Refurbishment and RMI are the main activities in this market, and have increased in importance due to the downturn in the economy and decline in construction levels.
Overall the flat roofing market in the UK has performed better through the tough trading conditions of the recession compared to some other building product markets; benefiting in particular by the requirement for essential RMI activities and the need to reduce energy consumption, as well as the impact of building regulation changes.
