Drywall panels, also known as plasterboard or wallboard, are made of gypsum (calcium sulfate dehydrate) and used in the construction industry.They are sometimes manufactured with additives to enhance their properties and add features such as fire resistance, water resistance, and mold resistance.

The increasing construction activities in Saudi Arabia drives the growth of the drywall panels market in Saudi Arabia.

Based on type, the Saudi Arabia drywall panels market is segmented into regular, moisture-resistant, plaster baseboard, paperless, type X, and others.The regular segment led the market with the largest share in 2020.

Regular drywall is a plain drywall with no special features.The absence of additional features does not make it a substandard type, and it is, thus, a widely used product.

Regular drywall is naturally fire retardant, as water molecules in the gypsum impede the spread of flames.However, this drywall type is not treated with other materials enhancing its fire resistance property.

The regular drywall products are white on one side and brown on the other. It is the most cost-effective drywall type and is available in a variety of thickness options, ranging from 3/8th of an inch to one inch. The most commonly used product of this type is typically available in 4/8-foot panels.

The chemicals & materials is one of the world’s major industries suffering serious disruptions such as supply chain breaks and office shutdowns as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.Moreover, due to the increased number of COVID-19 confirmed cases and the reinstatement of lockdowns following an initial easing, as well as uncertainty about the government’s ability to cover its oil revenue losses and stabilize its debt burden in the short term, the Saudi Arabia drywall panels market is facing various challenges such as lack of resources and manpower, as well as construction projects facing delays.

The Saudi government’s revenues are expected to decrease because of low oil prices in the coming years, which is most likely to influence the government’s economic spending plans and all mega infrastructure projects in the pipeline.This, in turn, would also negatively affect the drywall panels market in Saudi Arabia.

To mitigate the negative effects of the COVID-19 outbreak, parties have begun to seek solutions and common ground by compromising on their legitimate claims. On December 23, 2020, the General Panel of the Supreme Court of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia issued a decision (KSA Supreme Court’s General Assembly, Decision n° 45/m of 08/05/1442 A.H) regarding the effect of COVID-19 on construction contracts (KSA Supreme Court’s General Assembly, Decision n° 45/m of 08/05/1442 A.H). The Supreme Court’s decision offers guidelines on how the principle of good faith in contract performance can be applied in compliance with Sharia Law. Under the new decision, construction contracts regulated by Saudi Arabian law can now be amended by Saudi Arabian courts without the parties’ consent under some situations.
