Key Drivers of Global Tile Backer Board Market

  • The global tile backer board market is expanding at a rapid pace, due to the rise in usage of these boards as building panels. These boards can also be employed to create bonded waterproofing assemblies with tile coverings, owing to their durable, water resistant, and waterproof nature. Furthermore, growth in spending on construction, specifically in new housing, is expected to boost the demand for tile backer boards. Rapid growth of the housing sector is another factor anticipated to drive the market during the forecast period.
  • In terms of volume, the global construction sector is expected to reach US$ 15.5 Trn by 2030. Currently, China, the U.S., and India account for 57.0% share of the global construction sector. The construction sector in the U.S. is estimated to expand at a faster pace than that in China in the next 15 years. The construction sector in southern states of the country is projected to expand at a prominent pace during the forecast period.
  • China’s share in the global construction sector is likely to increase marginally by 2030. The construction sector in Brazil is expected to expand at a moderate pace during the forecast period, leading to rise in demand for construction in the longer term. Thus, rise in construction activities is anticipated to boost the residential and non-residential sectors in the near future. This, in turn, is estimated to augment the demand for tile backer boards during the forecast period.
