According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Magnesium Oxide Boards Market is accounted for $1,557.3 million in 2022 and is expected to reach $2,390.0 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period. Magnesium oxide board is a technologically advanced building material that performs better than traditional materials like gypsum, wood, and cement-based goods. Magnesium oxide is a type of mineral cement that is made from magnesium and oxygen and is generated under pressure and heat. MgO board offers a number of enticing advantages, including strong fireproofing, reduced production energy use, and waste reduction. Due to their fungi-resistant quality, they are also resistant to rot, mildew, mould, or allergies.

According to the Office for National Statistics, Europe, the monthly construction output in the UK grew by 5.8% in March 2021, with an increase of 6.7% in new works and an increase of 4.4% in repair and maintenance activities. According to the National Infrastructure Delivery Plan by the UK government, an amount of US$112.34 billion has been allocated for public infrastructure for the year 2020-2021.

Market Dynamics:


Growing investment in eco-friendly products and materials

Environmentally friendly building methods and supplies are referred to as ecological construction. Due to the fact that MgO boards are free of dangerous radioactive substances like formaldehyde, asbestos, and benzene, their demand has increased. Furthermore, premium-grade magnesium boards are very dependable and stable. These elements lengthen the life of walls and are predicted to support market expansion.


High moisture environment affects

MgO boards are not a good choice for roofing exterior facades or any other application where they will come into touch with moisture. It absorbs moisture from the surrounding air. The structure will become unsafe for habitation if these boards come into contact with metal flashings, fasteners, or components composed of galvanised steel. As a result, the demand is constrained in areas with high levels of humidity because the product would not be able to endure the climate.


Growth in the construction industry

The market for magnesium oxide boards is being driven by an increase in construction-related activities such as roofing, ceiling covering, flooring, insulated systems setting up of gypsum plasterboard and others. Magnesium oxide boards are frequently employed in a growing variety of construction-related operations. Magnesium oxide board production is greatly influenced by this.


Lack of skilled labour

The scarcity of trained labour is one of the main problems facing the building industry. There is a rising lack of skilled labour, such as carpenters, electricians, and plumbers, as the baby boomer generation retires. The rising cost of labour and raw materials is another issue affecting the building sector. Timber and concrete prices have also been rising. Construction companies are finding it challenging to maintain their profit margins as a result of these escalating prices.

Covid-19 Impact

The market for building materials suffered as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak. During this time, demand for the production of magnesium oxide and magnesium chloride, as well as magnesium board, was crippled. To protect their workers, businesses that manufacture construction materials had to implement additional safety precautions. Due to supply limitations, the raw ingredients needed to make magnesium oxide boards saw significant price changes. One of the key components, magnesium oxide, experienced drastic changes in its supply chain as a result of limitations put in place in several Asian Pacific nations.

The thin (<8 mm) segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The thin (<8 mm) segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, thin (8 mm) Boards with a thickness of less than eight millimetres are known as magnesium oxide boards. These boards have a wide range of uses, including prefabricated buildings, flooring systems, exterior cladding, and partitions. Additionally, they are utilised for interior walls and ceilings of homes and buildings as an alternative to gypsum boards.

The residential segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The residential segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the adoption of new products in the residential market is being boosted by consumers' growing preference for environmentally friendly construction and making dwellings fire proof. The demand for residential development is also being boosted by the constantly expanding populations in North America and the APAC countries. This will probably increase product usage.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the rapidly growing urbanisation, technological advancements, and booming construction industry. Additionally, the demand for home remodelling projects is rising in response to improving living standards. The market expansion is being fuelled by factors including rising commercial real estate investments, higher consumer expenditure, and increased industrial activities.

Region with highest CAGR:

South America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period.The demand for new environmentally friendly products has increased noticeably. One such example is magnesium oxide board, which offers thermal insulation, has an energy-efficient manufacturing method, and is toxin-free. The region is becoming more urbanised, which has led to an increase in commercial building construction, including multiplexes and shopping malls, which has helped the region's market expand.
