Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand from Paints and Coatings

  • With the steady growth of the construction sector, the demand for paints and coatings has been increasing in numerous countries, across the world, thereby increasing the demand for vibrant shades/pigments.
  • The outlook for Asia's construction industry, in the coming years, remains positive, with the region's real estate growth estimated to reach over 5%, during 2019.
  • Southeast Asia is expected to be a major construction market, in the years to come. According to the Global Construction 2030 (published by Global Construction Perspectives and Oxford Economics), Southeast Asia’s construction market is anticipated to exceed USD 1.0 trillion, by 2030. This prediction is underpinned by global geopolitical trends that see the BRIC region making way for ICASA (India, China, Africa, and Southeast Asia), to be the world’s new economic epicenter.
  • With the increasing demand for paints and coatings, there is a rise in the production of paints and coatings in the region. This, in turn, is also driving the demand for the market studied.

China is Expected to Dominate the Market in the Asia-Pacific Region

  • China is the largest manufacturer of coatings in the Asia-Pacific region, even when the entire coating industry was more or less slowing down in most of the regions.
  • In 2018, China’s construction industry developed rapidly, due to the central government’s push for infrastructure investment, as a means to sustain economic growth.
  • Despite the volatile growth in the real estate sector, the significant development of rail and road infrastructure by the Chinese government to withstand the expanding industrial and service sectors, has resulted in a significant growth of the Chinese construction industry in the recent years. As the construction industry is dominated by state-owned enterprises, the increased government spending is boosting the industry in the country.
  • Additionally, the packaging industry has witnessed noticeable growth, with the increased trend of express deliveries. During 2018, express delivery companies delivered more than 40 billion parcels in the country, which reflects around 28% increase over the past year.
  • Hence, with the growth in the various industries in the country, the consumption of paints and coatings, plastics, and textiles is increasing, which in turn, is expected to drive the demand in the market studied during the forecast period.
