Study Goals and Objectives
The objective of this report is to provide business planners, investors and other professionals with quantifiable market measurements and analyses that can help them formulate strategic business plans and make key investment decisions.

Reasons for Doing This Study
Commercial roofing is a $4.5 billion industry in North America in 2016 that defines the livelihood of more than 72 roofing contractors, over 350,000 of manufacturing employees that produce roofing products, and the distributors that carry these products. Changing national economies, improved industrial practices supported the growth of the North American roofing industry.

This BCC Research study is a comprehensive reference work that defines and describes the roofing industry. In preparation of this document, we have read, analyzed and condensed information from industry sources, trade literature, producer and distributor websites, and other reference material. The industry is diverse, creative and dynamic. The range of products currently on the market is very broad, far exceeding the ability of any sole distributor to stock and wider than most industry observers may realize. Many smaller producers today have the capability of growing into major brands tomorrow. Some of these future success stories will ride the wave of demand for new products such as buildingintegrated photovoltaic (BIPV) roofing products that are increasingly finding their way into the mainstream of roofing alternatives.
