Hard Times to Come for Flat Roof Sealing

The European market for flat roof sealing will be affected by the crisis not only this year, but also, if not more in 2021. While the expected decline in the industry in 2020 is 7.2%, next year it will probably be in the low double-digit range, as a new study by Interconnection Consulting shows.

The study covers the countries Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Nordic countries, Poland and Switzerland. Only Poland, the Nordic countries and Germany will have reached their pre-crisis level by 2023. All other markets, however, will continue to lag far behind the 2019 sales result in three years’ time. Italy and France are the countries most affected by the crisis, with a decline of almost 30 percent and almost 20 percent respectively in the period between 2019-2023. “The crisis hit most countries at a time when the upturn in the new construction sector had already slowed down,” explained Julia Tarasenko, the author of the study, the sometimes dramatic impact of the COVID crisis on the industry. In all the countries studied, it can be seen that the share of renovation projects is increasing strongly in relation to new construction projects. While the share of new construction was 51.5% in 2019, it is expected to be only just over 40% in 2023.

Bitumen Losing Ground

Bituminous waterproofing is the most popular product group, due mainly to the price advantage, with a sales share of over 60 percent in the examiner countries. However, elastomers and plastics will gain market share at the expense of bitumen in the following years due to their better environmental performance. Elastomers in particular, which are both recyclable and durable, have a bright future, according to the study. Important companies in the European market are Sika, BMI, Soprema, Nordic Waterproofing, Bauder, MAPEI, Alwitra, Renolit, Technonicol, Danosa, Swisspor, Chova.

Milky Glass and Pristine Views

The European market for window and façade glass in the non-residential sector is expected to grow in volume by 2.8% in 2018, according to a new study by Interconnection Consulting. Without the fallout from Brexit, the uptrend would be even greater, but will, however, continue over the next few years, with a growth in volume between three and four percent between 2019 and 2021.

Until last year, Great Britain was the largest market for window and façade glass in the non-residential sector, but was surpassed by Germany as a result of Brexit in 2017. Great Britain was the only large European market that experienced a decline in sales, of 3.5%, in 2017. On the other hand, sales grew in Germany by 4.9%, largely due to the uptick in the non-residential sector, which flourished on account of a bull market and the continued low interest rates. Poland is the market that will witness the strongest growth between 2015 and 2021. During this time period, annual average growth is expected to be 5.7%. Spain’s average growth rate is 5.5%. The Nordics are at 3.7%, France at 4.0%, and Italy at 3.1%.

The evolving glass sector, with its tremendous improvements compared to older products, will ensure increased demand. Sales will also be boosted by the fact that “the newer, high-tech glass technologies with double and triple panes will be replacing single-pane units, thereby using two to three times the amount of glass,” explains Ernst Rumpeltes, author of the study. Heat-absorbing glass, with a market share of 81.1%, is still the clear leader among glass types, although its share has been declining due to the growing popularity of combination glass. Windows account for the largest area of application, with a market share of 37.4%, followed by curtain wall systems, with 29.9%. In the future, however, curtain wall systems will gain in market shares at the expense of windows. The market for window and façade glass is very competitive and is essentially divided among a few top companies such as AGC, Saint Gobin, Guardian, Pilkington, and Euroglass.
