Asphalt shingles are roofing materials that are most commonly used for residential roofing in Canada. Asphalt shingles provide weather-resistance and are reasonably priced for homeowners. They are made up of fiberglass mats that are impregnated with asphalt and come in various styles and colors. Asphalt shingles are lightweight roofing materials that can be installed over most types of roof decks. They are often the material of choice for new home construction due to their affordability. An increase in the rate of urbanization has contributed to high demand for new housing in Canada. According to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), housing starts in Canada increased by 11.2% in 2021 compared to 2020 levels. The strong economic recovery, low interest rates, and shift towards remote work have been driving factors for increased demand for new home construction in the country.
The global Canada asphalt shingles Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1.23 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 2.4% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by CoherentMI.
The increased demand for new housing construction is expected to be a key growth driver for the Canada asphalt shingles market over the forecast period. As more homes are built across the country each year, it will translate to higher sales of asphalt shingles used for residential roofing applications. Additionally, homeowners routinely repair or replace aged roofs made up of asphalt shingles every 15-25 years. As a large installed base of asphalt shingle roofs reaches the end of its useful life, it will fuel replacement demand in the market. Long-term economic growth prospects of the Canadian economy and expected rise in disposable income levels are also projected to support housing starts and home renovation activity in the country. Both factors will contribute to growth of the asphalt shingles market in Canada through 2030.
