Scope & Regional Forecast of the Gypsum Board Market:

In this manner, drywall finishing allows a joint and a fastener head to be enclosed within an overall joint treatment network. One of the major advantages that drywall sheets have over fiberboard and plywood is their strong ability to resist fire. The usage of this material also provides other benefits like superior control over sound, better quality and convenience.

The primary growth driver of the Gypsum Board Market, for a long time, has been the rapidly expanding construction sector. Residential and commercial structures of the future are expected to raise the demand even further in the form of walls, partition systems, etc. Gypsum exporters are boosted by the fact that the price of related products is relatively stable and any fluctuations are expected to take place gradually.

The ramping of production capacity in Oman and China is expected to take care of any shortages in other countries. The movement of global population from rural to urban areas and the requirement for radically different architectural designs are also expected to boost future demand. The expansion of housing activities in Asia-Pacific is expected to elevate the demand for gypsum products significantly during the forecast period.
