Properties and Applications

Drywall, also known as wallboard, plasterboard and gypsum board are panels made of gypsum, used to construct walls and ceiling. Invented by Augustine Sackett, it was initially called Sackett Board, which eventually changed to drywall since it was a ‘dry’ alternative to the traditional lath and plaster technique. Drywall is preferred over plaster as it is easy to install, cost efficient, durable and easy to repair. It is less expensive, not just because it takes less time to install but also because gypsum is easily available and not expensive to mine.  It tends to be fire-resistant as well, and helps to reduce noise infiltration.

Based on its specialized properties drywall is divided into:

  • Regular Drywall
  • Water Resistant Drywall
  • Fire Resistant Drywall
    • Type X
    • Type C
  • Mold Resistant Drywall

Drywall finds its end-use applications in the construction industry across residential, non-residential and commercial sectors. In commercial spaces like hotels and restaurants and educational spaces, drywall can help to build a soundproof space. In the residential sectors, drywalls are also used to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the construction as well as helping provide thermal insulation as false ceilings. 

Industry Analysis

The growth of the construction sector globally has helped the drywall market. The growing trend of repair, remodelling and renovation in the residential sector has also helped the market. Since drywall is easy to install, there has been a rising demand for drywall among consumers for ‘do-it-yourself’ (DIY) projects. The drywall market has also been helped by the product’s ability to seamlessly divide spaces, making it an easy and cost-effective option for customizations of interior spaces.

In 2018, the cost of drywall materials increased by about 2-3% globally with gypsum products prices seeing the largest increase of 6-7%. The increase in the prices of cement, aggregates, concrete and lumber ranged between 3-4%.

Asia-Pacific is the largest market for drywall driven by demand in countries like China, India, Japan and Singapore. The growth of this regional market is aided by the ease of availability of raw materials, cheap labour costs, healthy economic growth and rapidly rising construction activities. China is the leading market in the region due to decreasing cost of residential constructions helped by favourable government activities. Rising population is leading to a growing demand for residential constructions in China and India, and thus, aiding the growth of the drywall market.
