Prior to the economic downturn, the Building Plaster Product Manufacturing industry was doing well. High levels of disposable income and financial security were behind a booming construction sector. Residential and commercial building projects, bolstered by easy capital access, were surging sources of demand for building plaster products. The economic downturn that struck in 2008 dealt a devastating blow to the construction sector, slashing demand for the plaster products used by builders. Industry revenue plummeted as a result.
Companies in this industry manufacture gypsum-based plaster products for use in construction. This includes products that are faced or reinforced with paper or paperboard (e.g. plasterboard), and non-reinforced plaster products (e.g. premixed and bagged plasters).
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
