The recession took a heavy toll on nearly all of the Gypsum Product Manufacturing industry's downstream markets. However, construction activity revived in 2012 and the industry returned to growth. Demand for gypsum products from residential and nonresidential construction markets is forecast to continue growing strongly in the five years to 2020. With housing starts expected to increase and the value of nonresidential construction growing, demand for gypsum products will remain healthy.
Operators in this industry manufacture gypsum products, such as wallboard, plaster, molding, statuaries and architectural plasterwork. Gypsum product manufacturers may mine, quarry or purchase natural or synthetic gypsum for use in the manufacturing of goods.
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.
