Key Findings:

  • The gypsum market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 9.9% to reach nearly $2.4 billion by 2018 and $3.8 billion by 2026.
  • Nearly all gypsum is used in three prime applications: building construction, cement (where it is used as a setting retarder), and agriculture (mostly for soil conditioner and fertiliser).
  • Patterns of gypsum consumption vary geographically. In the US, about 75% of the gypsum consumed is used in wallboard. The same is largely true for Western Europe, but for much of the world, the picture is quite different.
