Roofing Chemicals Market Segmentation:

The roofing chemicals market can be segmented in several ways, including by type, application, and region.

By Type:

  • Asphalt/Bituminous
  • Acrylic Resins
  • Epoxy Resins
  • Elastomers
  • Styrene

Asphalt/Bituminous: The most-widely used type of roofing chemical

Asphalt/Bituminous roll roofing or membrane is a roofing material commonly used for buildings. The material is based on the same materials used in asphalt shingles.  The asphalt/bituminous is the most-widely used type of roofing chemical. Asphalt has a proven track record of performance, with wide choice in top-surfacing, good insulation, reduced permanent deformation, reduced flushing, improved texture and longevity properties. 

By Application:

  • Bituminous Roofing
  • Metal Roofing
  • Elastomeric Roofing
  • Membrane Roofing
  • Plastic (PVC) Roofing

Bituminous Roofing: The largest application of roofing chemicals

Bituminous roofs are generally considered for their rigidness and long life. Bituminous roofs have the capability to last through the duration of any housing structure. They can be used with conventional shingles, which makes them suitable for quick installation. Bituminous mixed with rubber can also be used in roofing systems.
