Market Definition

The Paints and Coatings Market size was valued at USD 162.50 billion in 2021 and is estimated to reach USD 261.50 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.9 % from 2022-2030.

Paints are varied pigmented substances available in either oil form or water form used as protection against corrosion as well as for beautification. Coatings on the other hand refers to a covering that is applied to the surface of an object to enhance the properties preventing the corroding process on steel, water pipes, engineering equipment and others. Paints and coating include a wide variety of products like enamels, primers, varnishes, and caulks. They protect the surface under uncertain conditions such as extreme wild climate, fluctuating temperature, pollution, corrosion and Ultraviolet (UV) rays. They are widely used in building and construction and wood industry among others, where they are used to protect structures from any external damage.

Market Dynamics and Trends

The demand for paints and coating is growing significantly due to the increasing interest in interior design in urban areas along with growing various government initiatives such as development of smart cities, industrial corridors, infrastructure projects and reconstruction of existing cities. Also, growing demand for modern housing complexes, retail sector, housing and hospitality sector is driving the market growth.

For instance, in September 2020, Allnex launched a new eco-friendly phenolic resin ‘Phenodur’. This new coating is applicable for interior and exterior uses with a very low free formaldehyde value. Moreover, the growing semiconductor industry that uses special types of paints such as thermal spray coatings, ceramics and copper coatings that are helpful in electrical conductivity and magnetic response boosts the growth of the market. Furthermore, stringent environmental regulations by regulatory bodies prohibiting the use of toxins such as xylene, ethyl acetate, methylene chloride and glycol are driving the market for non-toxic eco-friendly paints.

However, the presence of toxins in paint thinner such as high volatile organic compounds (VOC), responsible for causing eye irritation, skin allergy and headache are restraining the growth of the market.  On the contrary, water-based paints and coatings that do not contain toxins, and low VOC coatings with features such as quick drying, low odor, non-yellowing, and UV resistance are expected to create ample growth opportunities for the market in the coming years.

For instance, in June 2020, Penfund announced an investment of USD 160 million in caliber collision centers. This investment propelled the demand for high-quality paints and coatings to restore vehicles such that they look authentic and aesthetic.

Also, the presence of prominent market players including Axalta, PPG Industries and Red Spot Paint in this region boost the market growth. For instance, in June 2021, PPG Industries announced to complete its acquisition of Tikkurila, PPG controls 97.1% of Tikkurila’s issued and outstanding shares. This acquisition will offer customers access to a wide variety of portfolios in coatings through new technologies and resources.

 

Competitive Landscape

The paints and coatings market comprises of various market players such as PPG Industries, Sherwin-Williams Co., AkzoNobel, Nippon Paint Holdings Co., RPM International Inc., Axalta Coating Systems, BASF Coatings, Asian Paints Limited, Kansai Paint Co. Ltd. and Masco Corporation. These market players are adopting various joint strategies such as agreements and business expansion across various regions to maintain their dominance in the paints and coating market.  

For instance, in February 2022, Sherwin-Williams acquired AquaSurTech to strengthen its position in coatings solutions. This acquisition will improve and enhance the product portfolio for Sherwin-Williams as AquaSurTech focuses on the development of eco-friendly coatings for the PVC building products industry.

Moreover, in November 2021, Nippon Paint Automotive Coatings Co. Ltd. (NPAC) and Tong Yang Holding Corporation announced the acquisition of shares of five automotive coatings companies, which are consolidated subsidiaries of NPAC to make them wholly-owned subsidiaries of NPAC. This acquisition will enable increased demand for paints and coatings to accelerate profitable growth throughout China and other future markets.
