Some of the benefits of using a gypsum board include durability, lightweight, cost-effectiveness, ease of installation, fire-resistant, etc. A new research report by IMARC Group, titled “Gypsum Board Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, estimates that the market was worth US$ 21 Billion in 2017.
