Synthetic gypsum market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.82%”
The synthetic gypsum market size is estimated at USD 1.42 billion in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.82% to reach USD 1.80 billion by 2023. The market is driven by factors such as the increasing urban population, increasing applications in the agriculture industry, increasing demand from the construction sector, and the economic benefits of synthetic gypsum. Synthetic gypsum is widely used in construction applications, including drywall, cement, and plaster, thereby reducing the need for mining natural deposits.
“The phosphogypsum segment is projected to grow at the highest rate in synthetic gypsum market during the forecast period.”
The phosphogypsum segment is projected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to its high insulation, acoustic, and excellent water retention properties. It also has a high water density that is beneficial for the healthy growth of plants and hence witnesses a high demand from the horticultural sector. Synthetic gypsum increases the strength, durability, surface finish, and resistance to adverse climatic conditions as per design specifications/requirements without compromising on the quality of the concrete structure.
“Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period”
The Asia Pacific market is projected to be the fastest-growing during the forecast period. The major factor driving the growth of the market is the large-scale government investments in the building & construction sector in the region. Additionally, the increasing population and rising income accelerate the per capita spending on construction. The markets of China and India are projected to be lucrative due to their ongoing and upcoming infrastructural construction projects as well as the increase in consumer spending on construction activities.
