Volume demand to increase 2% annually through 2011
Demand for gypsum products in North America is forecast to grow about two percent annually through 2011, exceeding 52 million metric tons. Nonresidential building markets will offer the best opportunities over the forecast period, with gains fueled by a rebound in the US market and continued economic expansion in Mexico. Strength in the nonresidential building market will help offset weakness in residential construction, the largest market for gypsum products. A sluggish outlook for construction of new single-family housing in the US and Canada will limit growth for gypsum products in residential construction. Measured in terms of dollar value, demand for gypsum products is projected to advance in excess of three percent per annum through 2011 to $6 billion. That pace will represent a deceleration from the growth of the 2001-2006 period, when unit prices climbed as industry capacity (particularly for gypsum board) lagged a surge in demand.

Mexican housing demand to aid gypsum board gains
Gypsum board was the largest gypsum product segment by a large margin in 2006, accounting for over three-quarters of demand. Through 2011, the Mexican construction market is forecast to post the fastest growth for gypsum board, at more than five percent per annum in terms of square feet. Gains in the Mexican market for gypsum board will benefit from government initiatives to relieve the nation’s housing deficit, as well as from further market penetration as construction methods amenable to gypsum board become more widely adopted. However, while Mexico growth will be rapid, its demand for gypsum board will continue to represent less than three percent of the North American total.

Demand strongest for water resistant gypsum board
Demand for water resistant (or “green”) gypsum board is projected to outstrip that of other board types through 2011. Water resistant board will benefit from residential construction trends increasing the number of bathrooms and the size of kitchens. This increased market penetration will allow water resistant board to post above average gains in the relatively weak residential construction market.

Demand for gypsum as an additive to cement will continue to be one of the most robust sources of demand, growing faster than other uncalcined products such as agricultural gypsum and gypsum filler. Driven by the accelerating growth of nonresidential construction throughout North America, demand for gypsum as a cement additive will approach 8.5 million metric tons in 2011.
