Analysts’ Viewpoint

The growth of the global & India gypsum-based products market is expected to be driven by rise in the number of construction projects, advancements in technology, increasing awareness pertaining to the benefits and potential of different raw materials, favorable properties of gypsum for indoor construction, etc. Market players should focus on expanding their production capabilities and offering their products on online portals to increase sales and market presence.  

Gypsum-based Products Market: Overview

  • Gypsum, a hydrated calcium sulfate, is white or pale yellow in color, depending on its source. It is a major source material used in the manufacturing of a wide range of gypsum-based products such as plaster, pop, wall putty, gypsum panel, and rapid wall.
  • Gypsum plaster is produced with high purity gypsum and processed in fully automated machinery to obtain a high-quality final product. Gypsum plaster is further blended with special additives and retarders to make it suitable for gypsum plastering. Special retarders added in gypsum plasters increase the working time for plastering (setting time from 15 minutes to 25 minutes), thereby reducing wastage in bucket and spillage during application (maximum wastage 5%). Saint-Gobain’s Gyproc brand of gypsum plasters with special additives are lightweight and increase productivity by 20%.
  • Based on raw material, the market has been bifurcated into natural and synthetic gypsum. In terms of volume, the share held by the synthetic gypsum segment is expected to increase at a rapid pace. The segment is projected to expand at a notable CAGR by the end of the forecast period. Synthetic gypsum is often utilized as a substitute to natural gypsum. Furthermore, its low cost of manufacturing is replacing natural gypsum, globally. It is primarily produced as a byproduct of industrial processing and offers the same characteristics as that of natural gypsum. Furthermore, it is environment-friendly. All these factors have fueled the consumption of synthetic gypsum, globally.

Key Drivers of Gypsum-based Products Market

  • Rise in population and number of middle class consumers and significant expansion of the building & construction industry in developed and developing countries have led to a rise in the demand for gypsum-based products, globally. Beneficial properties of gypsum-based products are expected to drive the demand for these products across the globe in the near future. Gypsum-based products, such as gypsum plaster, are completely free from shrinkage cracks, owing to their self-setting properties. Shrinkage cracks generally occur in sand-cement plaster due to sudden changes in moisture content of the concrete. The water curing process is mandatory for 20 to 21 days in order to reduce shrinkage cracks in sand-cement plaster and control heat in concrete. Water curing is labor intrinsic and time consuming. Gypsum-based wall putty is increasingly being used to provide smooth and uniform interiors for repainting of walls. In simple terms, wall putty is a white gypsum-based fine powder that can be turned into a smooth mixture and applied to walls before painting. Shortening of the repainting cycle (from six -eight years to three-three and half years) is estimated to boost the demand for gypsum-based wall putty, as removal of the original paint from the wall requires scrubbing. This leaves the wall with pores, an uneven surface, and dampness. Plaster of Paris offers high durability, good adhesion onto the substrate, shine & smoothness, low thermal conductivity, and fire resistance.
  • Rise in demand for energy-efficient and eco-friendly products to decrease COemission has boosted the demand for construction materials that consume less energy. Increase in demand for energy-efficient buildings has led to a rise in the demand for rapid wall.

Asia Pacific to Dominate Gypsum-based Products Market

  • In terms of volume, Asia Pacific accounted for a leading share of the global gypsum-based products in 2019, due to a rise in investments by governments of countries such as China, India, and Thailand in the construction sector of their respective countries. Furthermore, increase in renovation activities across China and India is also anticipated to drive the demand for gypsum-based products in Asia Pacific in the near future.
  • Based on various states of India, Maharashtra held a prominent share of the gypsum-based products market in India. Presence of major manufacturing giants such as Saint-Gobain S.A. is expected to drive demand for gypsum-based products across the state. Additionally, Maharashtra is a major state in terms of contribution to the India’s GDP. The state is home to major builders of India such as Godrej & Boyce Mfg. co. Ltd, OBEROI REALTY LIMITED, Kalpataru Limited, Piramal Realty Private Limited, Lodha Group, Mahindra Lifespace Developers Ltd., and Hiranandani Constructors Private Limited. All these factors are expected to drive the demand for gypsum-based products across Maharashtra in the near future.
