Paint & Coatings

US demand for paint and coatings will rise 3.1 percent annually through 2012, aided by an improving outlook for construction and manufacturing activity and favorable export opportunities. A rebounding residential market will pace the dominant architectural paint segment, with interior paint outpacing exterior.

This study analyzes the $19.7 billion US paint and coating industry. It presents historical demand data (1997, 2002 and 2007) and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by market (architectural, manufacturing, maintenance, specialty), application, end use and formulation (water-based, solvent-based).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 34 industry players, including Sherwin-Williams, Akzo Nobel and PPG Industries.
