World demand for paints and coatings will reach US$83 billion in 2007 driven by higher quality, environmentally friendlier products (e.g., powder-based, rad-cure). Emerging markets in Asia/Pacific, Latin America and Eastern Europe will lead gains while the North American and Western European regions remain dominant.
This study analyzes the global paint and coating industry. It presents historical demand data (1992, 1997 and 2002) and forecasts to 2007 and 2012 by formulation (e.g., solvent-based, water-based, powder, radiation-curable); by market (e.g., construction, motor vehicles); by world region and for 25 countries.
The study also examines the global market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 36 leading industry competitors including Akzo Nobel, PPG Industries, ICU, DuPont, Valspar, BASF, Sherwin-Williams, RPM, SigmaKalon, Nippon Paint, and Kansai Paint.
