World Drywall and Building Plasters

Global drywall demand to expand 4.5% annually through 2012

World demand for drywall (also known as plasterboard or wallboard) is forecast to expand 4.5 percent per year through 2012 to 9.7 billion square meters. Gains will vary greatly by region, depending on a host of factors such as building construction spending and economic growth prospects, as well as trends in local construction techniques. Gypsum-based building plaster sales will rise 5.2 percent per annum through 2012 to 35 million metric tons. In most developed countries (with some exceptions in Western Europe), drywall represents by far the dominant market for gypsum. In developing countries, however, the dominant use for gypsum is as a cement additive. On a value basis, drywall is of far greater significance than gypsum-based building plasters at the global level.

More Details

Developing Asian countries have best sales prospects

Demand for drywall is concentrated in North America, which accounted for 48 percent of global sales in 2007. However, through 2012, market gains in North America will significantly lag all other regions, primarily due to maturation in the large US market. Moreover, construction spending growth in the US will remain well below the global average, although improve in comparison to the 2002-2007 period.

Drywall sales prospects in the Asia/ Pacific region will be particularly strong, especially when excluding Japan. China and India will perform especially favorably, with countries such as Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam also registering healthy gains in demand. The Japanese drywall market, although registering weak gains through 2012, will recover from the stagnant performance of the past five-year period.

Drywall sales in Western Europe will register gains lagging the world average, but exceeding most other developed markets. Demand for drywall in the region averaged 3.4 square meters per person in 2007, well below levels in other developed areas such as the US and Canada (11.1 and ten square meters per person, respectively). Gains will be particularly strong in countries such as Portugal, Italy and Spain, where drywall use is increasingly being substituted for traditional wet construction techniques. Western Europe will remain the world's largest market for gypsum-based building plasters through 2011.

Synthetic gypsum to gain increasing share of drywall demand

Drywall based on synthetic gypsum will continue to account for an increasing share of global demand through 2011. This will allow drywall companies to locate plants closer to urban population centers, thereby lowering product transportation costs. The most popular type of synthetic gypsum used in drywall is produced as a byproduct of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems at coal- fired power plants. Drywall recycling will also become more common, spurred by the efforts of companies such as New West Gypsum Recycling (Canada) and Gypsum Recycling International (Denmark).
