Concrete, Gypsum, and Plaster Products: A Global Outlook
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 17, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn – The global building materials market is volatile and is driven by trends established by the construction sector. The industry witnessed a huge decline during recession as the construction sector reeled under the woes of housing slump and depressed infrastructure spending. The decline in construction industry was further worsened due to the increase in raw material and energy prices. However, with gradual resumption of healthy market conditions, the concrete, gypsum, and plaster products industry is witnessing a revival in demand as new house constructions, building projects, public works projects in industrialized and emerging nations resume activity. At present, the preference for concrete is relatively high owing to its better carbon foot print, recyclable nature, durability, lower maintenance and energy efficiency. Gypsum-based plasterboard (wallboard) is gaining importance in construction markets, where sophistication and technical complexity of structures prevails.
The ready-mix concrete industry is most likely to display considerable improvement in the near term with the real estate industry depicting signs of recovery. With the transformation of the emerging markets into developed markets the consumption of plasterboard in these markets is expected to grow at a high rate in the long run. Global demand for the concrete additives market, in the near future, is likely to be driven by the growing use of fiber and chemical additives in concrete construction activities, in the emerging markets of Eastern Europe and Asia-Pacific. The concrete additives market is expected to witness strong growth in the water reducers segment, particularly the high-performance superplasticizers, which are used to impart strength to concrete structures, and enhance ease of pouring concrete to form various structures.
