The global plasterboard market is expected to witness a moderate CAGR during the forecast period (2018-2023). The growing demand for plasterboards from the construction sector is the major factor driving the market. The demand for plasterboards has been at a rise from the construction sector, owing to superior quality, low cost, and ease of installation. Plasterboard is essentially an inner layer of gypsum that is sandwiched between two outer layers of lining paper, with various additives added to the gypsum layer, while varying the additives, weight, and strength of the lining paper. The finished board offers different properties, such as insulation to sound and heat, impact resistance, and resistance to moisture accumulation in bathrooms and kitchens.

Adoption of Dry Construction Methods

With the adoption of dry method, the whole process of construction has accelerated. This is majorly because, dry method involves lighter materials, which are faster to install than the bricks. Hence, this has also reduced the need for wet trades. Additionally, it saves time and costs involved. The market for plasterboards is likely to grow with the increasing construction activities, investments, and projects in developing countries, such as India, China, Brazil, Indonesia, etc., during the forecast period. Residential end user is the fast-growing market, since plasterboards are used for construction of ceilings, wall panels, and partitions.

Asia-Pacific Dominates the Market

Asia-Pacific is expected to have the largest market, globally, for plasterboards, during the forecast period. This is majorly due to the rising construction activities in developing economies of the region, such as China, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Furthermore, the increasing investments in the construction sector of these countries is likely to propel the market for plasterboards during the forecast period. Some of the major upcoming construction projects in India include the Delhi-Jaipur Expressway, Polavaram Irrigation Project, Navi Mumbai International Airport, and the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor.
