Drywall & Building Plaster Market Size Analysis

According to research conducted by ChemView Consulting, in 2022, the worldwide Drywall & Building Plaster Market was worth US$ 5.2 Bn and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period. The market is expected to hit US$ 8.3 Bn by 2030 end.

Drywall, also known as dry lining and plasterboard, is a material that is commonly used as an alternative to plaster in the construction of walls and ceilings. It is primarily made from gypsum, a mined mineral.

Because of its superior characteristics and ease of application, drywall has grown in popularity compared to other construction materials such as cement concrete, making it a viable alternative.

Market Dynamic

Which is the Key Factor driving the demand for Drywall & Building Plaster Market?

The Global Drywall & Building Plaster Market has grown rapidly due to the expansion of construction activities globally. With the worldwide construction industry expected to grow, the innovation of drywall-based construction techniques is likely to expand. It is expected to boost the market for drywall and building plasters significantly.

Drywall is extremely useful in terms of fire resistance, sound reduction, and improving the lives of nonresidential and residential civil constructions. Drywall ceiling installation necessitates thinner sheets than wall installation because they are less heavy and thus easier to install.

Drywall can outperform plaster in terms of drying time, and walls and ceilings that would take weeks to plaster can be completed in days using drywall.

What are the opportunities in the Drywall & Building Plaster Market business?

Economic growth in certain countries is expected to fuel residential and commercial infrastructure investments, significantly driving the market growth. Demand for drywall and building plasters is directly related to developments in the construction industry.

Drywall and building plasters are widely used in new building construction and upgrading, maintaining, and repairing old residential and nonresidential structures. This surge, in turn, is expected to create significant opportunities in the coming years.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Which segment type between Drywall & Building Plaster Market is estimated to grow at a high CAGR?

The Drywall segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period and is expected to have a total market share of 43.5% in 2021. The growth factors attributed to the segment are associated with increased construction activities worldwide. This increased construction activity will boost drywall-based construction techniques.

Drywall, also known as wallboard, gypsum board, or plasterboard, is a panel made of calcium sulfate dihydrate (gypsum), with or without additives, that is normally pressed between two thick sheets of paper called a facer and a backer. These drywalls are commonly used to construct ceilings and interior walls.

Which application type creates the highest demand for Drywall & Building Plaster Market?

The residential segment is expected to grow fastest during the forecast period. Drywalls are important in residential properties because they increase the aesthetic appeal while also leading interior heat through thermal insulation provided by false ceilings.

Which region is consolidating its Drywall & Building Plaster Market dominance worldwide?

Due to several massive ongoing and upcoming construction projects in countries such as China and India, the Asia Pacific market is expected to remain dominant through the forecasted period. Furthermore, due to its high growth rate and size in the building construction market, the region has shown a higher demand for drywall and building plasters than other regions.

Demand for drywall in China is expected to grow more than 7.0% per year during this period, boosted by significant increases in residential and nonresidential construction spending. As drywall gains popularity over traditional building materials, it is expected to be used more frequently in residential applications in China.
