Shipments of paints and coatings in the US will reach 1.5 billion gallons in 2006 as the US expands its trade surplus in these products. Durable equipment coatings will lead gains based on strength in metal building components, industrial machinery and aerospace markets. Architectural paint will be supported by home repair and maintenance uses.
This study analyzes the $16.4 billion US paints and coatings industry. It presents historical data for 1992, 1996 and 2001 and forecasts to 2006 and 2011 by raw material; by type (e.g., architectural paints, durable equipment coatings, and maintenance and specialty coatings); by formulation (e.g., water-based, solvent-based, powders and radiation curables); and by application.
The study also examines the market environment, details industry structure and concentration, and profiles 29 companies including Sherwin-Williams, PPG Industries, Valspar, DuPont, ICI, RPM, Akzo Nobel, Benjamin Moore, BASF, and Masco.
