Gypsum Products

U.S. gypsum product sales are estimated to have increased at a nearly 20.0% compound annual rate between 2011 and 2014. This sharp growth was due to the surge in new home construction. Dollar sales gains also benefited from strong price increases. Despite these gains, sales remain some 25.0% below pre-recession levels. Sales are forecast to grow over the next five years as the housing market continues to recover, however, at a more moderate rate.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Gypsum Products. This First Look also provides data on product line sales, price trends, exports and imports, end-use market purchases, factors driving demand, plant operating ratios and profitability, and the competitive environment. Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.
