Drivers and Constraints Impacting the Market
One of the prevalent factors presumed to stimulate the gypsum board market is the development in the construction sector, where gypsum boards are accepted as important building materials. Gypsum boards can easily replace other construction materials like bricks, woods, plywood, and others as they are easy to install, economic, and offer sound dampening properties. Such factors are likely to augment the global gypsum board market during the assessment period. Moreover, the growing residential sector coupled with rapid urbanization are some of the other major factors anticipated to drive the market in the coming years.
On the flip side, fluctuating in importing prices of raw materials from other countries in terms of taxation is considered to retard the global gypsum board market in the coming years.
