Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Gypsum Product Manufacturing industry has rebounded strongly in recent years, as growth in building activity has driven downstream demand for industry products, most significantly in the construction of new houses. Wallboard manufacturers also invest heavily in the research and development of increasingly specialized products, notably enabling them to capture increased demand for environmentally-friendly products (including wallboard that improves indoor air quality) and better compete with other operators. New recycling techniques, such as the industry's increased reliance on synthetic gypsum, and the development of lightweight wallboard have helped operators save on both transportation and installation costs... ... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry SWOT Analysis Chapter

The Gypsum Product Manufacturing industry is in the mature stage of its life cycle. Over the 10 years to 2022, industry value added (IVA), which measures the industry's contribution to the US economy, is projected to rise an annualized 8.2%. In comparison, US GDP is forecast to rise at an annualized rate of 2.0% in the same period. While high IVA growth can be indicative of a growing industry, this industry's rate of IVA change reflects the dramatic recovery of downstream construction markets, rather than organic expansion. In 2022, IVA is still anticipated to be below its peak 2006 level. Another important indicator of this industry's maturity is its reliance on the construction industry, which has strong ties to general economic conditions.
