In this golden age of applied material science, board manufacturers stand to gain long-term profits by developing and commercialising new product and process technology. Board makers work with decades old base materials, and so their success depends heavily on the low volume, relatively expensive additives, and additive technology development in turn, for future growth and profit success.

Key Findings:

  • There are over 70 billion square metres of construction boards produced annually, using a very wide range of materials and additives.
  • At this time, there are a few board types – termed “high-value” in the report – which have the capability to show higher than market growth. This is from a combination of base material and additive technology aspects with market, consumer, and technology demands. All of the base board materials have been in the market for at least three decades – therefore the report focus is on their additives as a primary enabler of board technology advancement and future profitability.
