Global Gypsum Board Market Bolstered by Revival of the Construction Industry

The global gypsum board market is currently witnessing a stable growth which can be attributed to factors such as large-scale industrialisation, government initiatives and strong demand from the construction industry.

According to IMARC Group’s new report titled, “Gypsum Board Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, the global gypsum board market has grown at a CAGR of around 3% during 2009-2016. Gypsum board, also known as drywall, can be defined as a board consisting of a gypsum core pressed between two sheets of thick paper. It is used for interior ceilings, walls and partition systems in various residential, commercial and institutional buildings. It can be directly attached to wood, metal frames and other existing surfaces using screws, nails or adhesives.

This makes the installation process more convenient and time saving as compared to traditional processes. Gypsum board has also gained popularity because of its non-combustible core that contains chemically combined water which slowly releases as steam under high temperatures. This effectively helps in retardation of heat transfer and makes it more fire-resistant than plywood, hardwood and fibreboard. Some of its other properties include durability, versatility, cost-effectiveness, light-weight, sound attenuation and aesthetic appearance.
