World Drywall & Building Plasters

As Quoted In Commodity Online

Global demand for drywall will grow 4.5 percent annually through 2012. Prospects in the Asia/Pacific region will be particularly robust, while sales growth in the dominant North American market will significantly lag all other regions. Drywall based on synthetic gypsum will account for an increasing share of demand.

This study analyzes the 7.8 billion square meter world drywall industry. It presents historical demand data for 1997, 2002 and 2007, with forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by product (drywall, building plasters); world geographic region (e.g., North America, Asia/Pacific, Western Europe); and for 14 major national markets.

The study also considers macroeconomic and environmental factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 24 major players, including Saint-Gobain, USG, Knauf, Lafarge, National Gypsum, Koch Industries, Yoshino Gypsum, Beijing New Building Material, and Eagle Materials.
