Demand for protective coatings in the US will grow 4.6 percent annually through 2009. Advances will be driven by transportation equipment, machinery, electronics and structural metal applications. Corrosion control coatings will remain dominant while fire resistant, anti-wear and conformal coatings grow the fastest.
This study analyzes the $10.7 billion US protective coating industry. It presents historical demand data (1994, 1999, 2004) and forecasts to 2009 and 2014 by coating product (e.g., corrosion control, anti-wear, waterproofing, antimicrobial, fire resistant, conformal); by formulation (e.g., epoxy, alkyd, polyurethane, acrylic, polyester, nonmetallic, metallic); and by market (e.g., manufacturing, construction, industrial maintenance).
The study also considers market environment variables, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 33 leading competitors including PPG Industries, DuPont, Sherwin-Williams, Valspar, Akzo Nobel, RPM, and BASF.
