The name of the comnay is origineated to Yoshino mine where they mined the raw material of plaster products. Now they are the biggest producer of plaster board in Japan who has 80 % market share.
Business summary 90% of their sales is made from plaster board.
They have been keeping a stable supply and an incredibly high market share with about 20 production sites and countless logistic points which belong to them, while holding stocks of several big wholesalers.

There are only 2 producers of plaster board in Japan, whose other is Chiyoda Ute, and the share has been balanced at 80:20 since long time.
Future plan Although they are keeping 80% market share, the market size itself has been fluctuateing with the move of new building starts.

The volume of use of plaster board per surface of floor in non-residential building has been increasing.
However, considering 75% of total applications of plaster board is residential building and the new residential starts is supposed to continuously decrease, the market of plaster board is estimated to shrink.

Thus, Yoshino Gypsum is now focusing on getting shares in South East Asian markets.
