August 2020 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Paints & Coatings Market Growth & Trends

The global paints and coatings market size is anticipated to reach USD 202.7 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a CAGR of 4.3% over the forecast period. The market is expected to witness significant growth in emerging economies, such as India, China, and Indonesia. This growth is attributed to the boom in the global construction industry and increasing demand for paints and coatings from durable goods, motor vehicles, and industrial maintenance applications.

The demand for water-based paints & coatings is expected to rise over the forecast period on account of various regulations regarding VOCs and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) and increasing awareness about the adverse effects of solvent-based paints & coatings. The set of rules applicable for paints & coatings manufacturing are very stringent due to the carcinogenic and flammable properties of solvents. Therefore, VOC-free powder- and water-based coatings are expected to have high demand over the forecast period. The global market is heading toward major consolidations to increase efficiency, support growth, and achieve more leverage with suppliers and customers.

Market consolidation has become a long-term trend, particularly in the western market, with limited organic growth. For instance, the market in America has been consolidating for decades, wherein key players are entering mergers & acquisitions to complement the strong organic growth and increase efficiencies through scale or improved processes. Recent deals, such as The Sherwin-Williams Company and The Valspar Corporation merger and Nippon Paint Holdings Co., Ltd. and Dunn-Edwards Corp. merger, reflect the ongoing trend of consolidation across the industry in the western market.
