Plasterboard market projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7%
The plasterboard market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period of 2016–2021 and reach USD 23.85 billion by 2021. The plasterboard market is gaining momentum in the modern construction industry due to the factors such as superior quality, low cost, and ease of installation of the plasterboard. Moreover, the technological advancements in extrusion and processing is also driving the market for plasterboard. However, lack of awareness about recyclability of plasterboard among end users and lack of availability of plasterboard waste disposal plants act as retraining factors for the plasterboard market.

The standard plasterboard segment accounted for the highest market share in the plasterboard market in 2015
The standard plasterboard segment dominated the plasterboard market in 2015 and is projected to retain the leading position through 2021.Standard wallboard is the most commonly used plasterboard and comes in different sizes.

This type of plasterboard is expected to witness a higher growth in the emerging Asia-Pacific, Latin American, and Middle Eastern & African regions than in the developed regions. The higher growth of the standard plasterboard market in these regions is driven by the increasing number of new building constructions, both residential and non-residential, as well as the low pricing of standard boards.

The tapered-edged segment, by form, accounted for a considerably higher market share in the plasterboard market
The plasterboard market has been segmented into two forms, namely, tapered-edged and square-edged.The tapered-edged plasterboard led the demand for plasterboard in 2015 and is projected to grow at a higher CAGR from 2016 to 2021.

This growth can be attributed to the easy and quick installation of tapered-edged plasterboard. Developed countries have a higher demand for tapered-edged plasterboard compared to that of developing countries.

The Asia-Pacific region expected to witness the fastest-growth during the forecast period
The Asia-Pacific region is projected to register the highest CAGR globally, between 2016 and 2021.China was the largest market for plasterboard in the Asia-Pacific region, in 2015.

The Chinese market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of construction activities in the region as well as population in China, Indonesia, and India are driving the growth of the Asia-Pacific plasterboard market.
