Gypsum Market – Analysis, Outlook, Growth, Trends, Forecasts

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Future Market Insights (FMI) has forecast the gypsum market value to surpass US$ 4 Bn in 2021. The gypsum industry is expected to be driven by growing construction of residential, commercial and institutional buildings across the globe. The market is likely to witness a growth at 6.2% CAGR during the assessment period between 2021 and 2031.

As per the study, production of calcium sulfate is gaining traction over the last few years and it is anticipated to contribute between 2% and 3% in overall minerals production across the globe.

FMI also forecasts that the global anhydrite gypsum market is expected to register year-on-year growth of 5.4% in 2021. Consistent rise in demand for construction products including drywall, plasterboard, cement and others is the key factor enabling growth in the gypsum market.

Base Year Value (2020A) US$ 3.86 Bn
Estimated Year Value (2021E) US$ 4.07 Bn
Projected Year Value (2031F) US$ 7.4 Bn
Value CAGR (2021-2031) 6.2%
Collective Value Share: Top 3 Countries (2020A) 39.7%


2021-2031 Gypsum Market Outlook Compared to Growth Registered in 2016-2020

Demand for gypsum grew at 3.1% CAGR between 2016 and 2020. The outbreak of COVID-19 was unprecedented and it tightened its noose globally, faster than expected. Governments were therefore compelled to put COVID-19 response on war footing, which obstructed transport and human interaction.

Operations across various industries came to a standstill, which also hampered sales within the global gypsum market to a substantial extent. This is due to limitations in the movement and nationwide lockdowns, which hindered operations in the construction sector across several regions. This has in turn caused the demand for gypsum to plummet in 2020.

In the current scenario, consumption of gypsum is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.8%. Expansion of the construction sector as operations recover post withdrawal of pandemic-induced restrictions is boosting the demand of gypsum, especially in India, China and GCC countries.

Gypsum is a versatile mineral owing to its wide range of applications. Superior property of calcium sulfate di-hydrate makes it useful for many applications. This also creates demand for gypsum in various forms including food additive, which is in making bread and dough, fire retardant in plastic products, source of calcium and sulfate to promote plant growth, and manufacturing of cements, mold materials and others. Such a wide range of applications provide stability to the demand graph of gypsum.

Why is Demand for Gypsum Board/Drywall Is Increasing?

Drywall is also known as plasterboard, wallboard, sheet rock, and gypsum board. Gypsum is a key material used in the production of drywall. Use of drywall is currently growing in the construction industry, especially in developed countries such as the U.S., China, and Germany.

In the U.S., maximum percentage of gypsum sold is consumed for drywall manufacturing. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), a typical new American home contains more than 7 KT of gypsum alone.

The drywall market has been growing at a significant rate since the past few years, which has had a positive impact on the gypsum market.

Majorly of synthetic gypsum is used for drywall manufacturing, due to which production of synthetic gypsum is increasing significantly.

How is Gypsum useful in Agriculture Industry?

While farmers have used gypsum (calcium sulfate di-hydrate) for centuries, it has received renewed attention in the recent years, owing to several benefits associated with gypsum.

For instance, gypsum is considered a rich source of calcium and sulfur for plant nutrition. Plants are becoming more deficient in sulfur and soil is not supplying enough of the same. Gypsum is an excellent source of sulfur for plant nutrition and for improving crop yield.

It also improves acid soils and treats aluminum toxicity. One of gypsum’s main advantages is its ability to reduce aluminum toxicity, which often accompanies soil acidity, particularly in subsoil.

Besides this, gypsum is used to improve soil structure. Flocculation, or aggregation, is needed to give favorable soil structure for root growth and air and water movement. Gypsum has been used for many years to improve aggregation and inhibit or overcome dispersion in sodic soils.

Owing to the above mentioned advantages of gypsum, its adoption is increasing significantly in agriculture.
