“World Tile Roofing Demand By Type & Region 1999-2019”
China is the country with the largest tile roofing demand in the world, including both concrete and clay roof tiles. According to The Freedonia Group report titled, “World Tile Roofing Demand By Type & Region 1999-2019,” world demand of roof tiles was 34.6 billion square feet in 2009, with China accounting for 42% of the world market, at 14.6 billion square feet. World demand, and China’s market share of world demand, are expected to continue to increase, with an estimated world tile roofing demand in 2014 of 40.6 billion square feet, with China accounting for 42.6%, 17.3 billion square feet. A further increase of 15% in world demand, to 46.8 billion square feet, and 16.7% in China demand, to 20.2 billion square feet, is projected in 2019.
“China by far is showing the largest and fastest growing demand both for architectural coatings and for roof tiles,” stated Francesca Crolley, VP of Business Development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. “It was obvious to us to rapidly expand our new Nansulate® Crystal sales and marketing efforts, which includes new roof tile test data and exciting branding and interactive micro-site, to China. We have a very strong distributor there in Beijing Woven Energy Efficiency Technology, and they have been aggressively marketing Nansulate in a number of regions and are very enthusiastic about Nansulate Crystal. The combination of benefits, including the fact that the coating is clear and doesn’t change the look of the roof, has made it a standout solution. The multiple performance qualities provided by Nansulate® Crystal...energy savings, extended roof protection from UV, resistance to mold, fungi, and bacteria...offer an unparalleled value added proposition. We have a powerful, patented multi-solution product that allows us to meet all these needs and more.”
