Roofing Materials Market in Japan: Key Research Findings 2020
Yano Research Institute (the President, Takashi Mizukoshi) has conducted a survey on the domestic market of roofing materials, and found out the product trends by material, the trends at market players, and the future outlook.
For FY2019, size of the domestic roofing materials market was 115,480,000 m2 (101.3% YOY). Demand increased for facilities related to the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 (stadiums, accommodations, stores, etc.), renovations of public facilities, and disaster recovery of existing homes across the nation.
Since the growth of roofing materials market is highly dependent on main applications of metal materials, i.e. warehouse construction and housing starts, it is assumed that it will continue to rely on these new constructions.
Metal Roofing Materials Account for 64.1% of The Total Market
Looking at the roofing materials market for FY2019 by material, share for metal tiles accounted for 64.1%, clay tiles 14.7%, cement tiles 14.2%, shingle materials 3.9%, and metal roofing materials with granular stones 3.1%.
As the number of new constructions decrease due to spread of the COVID-19 infections, the market of roofing materials expects downturn in FY2020. Situation will be harsh especially for clay tiles, cosmetic slates and shingle materials, which are mainly used for new houses. Nevertheless, only slight decline is expected for the market, as metal roofing materials can expect rise in demand for an increasing demand for lightweight materials against the backdrop of natural disasters all over the country in FY2018 and FY2019, and for growing needs to build new distribution facilities due to expansion of e-commerce market.
Moreover, a trend at home refurbishing businesses focusing more on exterior than on interior living space which may involve higher risk of COVID-19 infections may lead to further boost for the roofing materials market.
