GFRG (Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum) Market by Type (Type X, Type C), Application (Interior and Exterior), End User (Residential and Non-Residential), and Region (North America, Europe, APAC, Latin America, MEA) - Global Forecast to 2023
“The GFRG market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2018 to 2023, in terms of value.”
The GFRG market is estimated to be USD 2.45 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 3.44 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.0% between 2018 and 2023. The increasing demand for GFRG in building & construction projects is one of the most significant factors projected to drive the GFRG market. Superior properties of GFRG such as sound absorption capability, good fatigue, temperature resistance, rapid installation, and recyclability are also contributing to the growth of the GFRG market. However, the difficulty in transportation and building high-raised buildings, in turn, are restraining the growth of the GFRG market.
“Based on type, the Type X segment is projected to lead the GFRG market during the forecast period, in terms of value and volume.”
Type X is used in both residential and commercial buildings, such as schools, hospitals, and retail centers. Type X is cost-effective as well as fast to install and maintain good temperature tolerance. These are also recyclable and have a low carbon footprint. The increasing adoption of Type X gypsum board in non-residential construction projects is expected to drive the Type X segment of the GFRG market.
“The non-residential end user segment of the GFRG market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of value and volume.”
GFRG manufacturers are increasingly focusing on the development of GFRG for non-residential buildings, such as offices, institutes, hospitals, gymnasiums, cinema theaters, retail stores, auditoriums, and museums. The increasing demand for high fatigue resistance and good temperature resistance building materials from the non-residential construction sector is projected to drive the non-residential end user segment of the market.
“The GFRG market in the MEA region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2023, in terms of value and volume.”
The GFRG market in the MEA region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of value and volume. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for GFRG from the building & construction industry in MEA countries. Initiatives undertaken by governments of various MEA countries to promote the development of smart cities are also contributing to the growth of the GFRG market in the MEA region.
