Decorative Paints Market

Decorative Paints Market: APEJ Projected to Account for the Largest Market Value Share Throughout the Forecast Period: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016-2026

Decorative paints are liquids, mixtures, or composites which, when applied on surfaces, get converted into a thin film or layer. Decorative paints play an important role in the construction and architecture sector, where they are used to embellish the interiors as well as exteriors of buildings with various finishes such as matte finish, eggshell and satin, gloss and semi-gloss, etc. The functionality of decorative paints differs significantly depending upon the prevailing climatic conditions. Revenue from the sales of decorative paints worldwide is estimated to be valued at US$ 42.9 Bn by 2016 end and the global decorative paints market is estimated to register a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period 2016–2026.

Changing consumer demands and rapid development of commercial and residential buildings expected to boost market growth

A rapid growth in urbanisation along with a high standard of living and increasing customer preferences for depicting an architectural touch in residential buildings has boosted the demand for decorative paints in the last few years. A rising number of commercial buildings and rocketing construction of skyscrapers is further expected to push the demand for decorative paints in the coming years. Manufacturers are producing paints that can be used on multiple substrates such as cement walls, wood, glass, tiles, composites, etc. with robust physical and chemical properties, providing consumers the freedom to use paints as per their suitability. This, in turn, is expected to boost the growth of the global decorative paints market over the forecast period. However, the threat of product substitution is expected to be a restraint to the global decorative paints market and use of nanotechnology based powder paints and coatings is expected to pose significant challenges to traditional decorative paints manufacturers globally.

Introduction of intelligent paints for controlling temperature and heat transfer in varied geographical and climatic conditions around the world is emerging as a major trend in the global decorative paints market. Also, the need to decrease the hazardous impact of solvent based paints on the environment across the globe is pushing manufacturers and consumers to go for water based paints that emit lower Volatile Emission Control (VOC) as compared to solvent based paints.
