Global architectural paint demand will rise 3.7 percent annually through 2009, led by gains in emerging markets such as China and India. The shift toward water-borne paints and increasing sales to the DIY sector will continue, especially in developing regions. This study analyzes the $31.3 billion world architectural paint industry. It presents historical demand data (1994, 1999 and 2004) and forecasts to 2009 and 2014 by paint formulation (water-based, solvent-based), by market (residential building, nonresidential building), by end user (professional, consumer/DIY), by world region (e.g., North America, Asia/Pacific, Western Europe) and for 22 major countries.
The study also considers market environment indicators, evaluates producer market share and profiles 32 major players including Imperial Chemical Industries, Akzo Nobel, Sherwin-Williams, SigmaKalon, Masco, and COMEX.
