Market Overview

The Global Plasterboard Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 7.1% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Plasterboard is a panel made of gypsum (calcium sulfate dihydrate), generally extruded between thick sheets of facer and backer paper, typically used in the construction of interior walls and ceilings. It is used for partitions and the lining of walls, ceilings, roofs, and floors. The properties of plasterboard can be modified to meet specific requirements such as fire resistance, moisture resistant, shock resistance, etc. Plasterboard is also known as Drywall, Wallboard, Sheet Rock, Gypsum Board, or Gypsum panel.

Drivers & Restraints

Due to the rising population, the construction sector is witnessing high growth and the market for Plasterboards is increasing mainly because of its growing demand in the construction industry. There is a high preference for the use of plasterboards over traditional systems in the construction industry owing to its superior quality, low cost, versatility, and easy installation. Also, plasterboards are more eco-friendly as compared to traditional systems. Thus, the changing trends in the construction industry which are leading to the adoption of more cost-efficient, fast, durable, eco-friendly, and modern building techniques are boosting the demand for plasterboards.

In 2017, approximately 25 billion square feet of plasterboard products were sold in the United States. The usage of plasterboard, in the US, is becoming more

prevalent compared to traditional lath and plaster owing to its wide applications and cost-efficiency. The home-builders are facing the challenge of increasing building materials costs, which is driving the demand for plasterboard in the region.
