Key Market Trends

Increasing Private Investment Participation is Expected to Drive the Market

  • The Saudi government has played a key role in increasing private investment participation. The government helps investors by providing them support during cross-border trade, in order to access new markets, establishing cities or zones that specialize in manufacturing of coatings, and hence, maintaining a high level of attractiveness to potential investors, facilitating the provision of joint benefit services and facilities, creating of attractive, profitable, and tangible investment opportunities, and enhancing competition locally and internationally.
  • In response to the market potential and the changes in the Kingdom, 13 local and foreign investors have agreed to sign non-binding statements of intent (SOI) with the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA), to further discuss future investments in the Kingdom. Dow became the first company to obtain a trading license from the government of Saudi Arabia, permitting full ownership in the trading sector.
  • The Saudi government’s joint ventures include collaborating with various international market leaders, which is leading to an increase in its production base.
  • The coating facility, located in PlasChem Park in Jubail, is expected to address the needs of the Saudi market, with an innovative range of acrylic-based polymers for water treatment, industrial, and architectural coating applications.
  • These factors are expected to increase private investments in the construction sector, which, in turn, is likely to increase the usage of paints and coatings over the forecast period.

The Architectural Industry to Drive the Market

  • Paints and coatings are used on both the interior and exterior of structures. They not only add colors or serve decorative purposes, but also perform a wide range of functions.
  • The interior of the houses, like bathroom walls, which have moisture, need to have wipe-ability in order to keep them clean. Paints with glossier sheens have a tighter molecular structure than flat paints, making it more difficult for moisture to penetrate. Thus, these types of paints are used in the bathroom.
  • On the exterior of the house, paints and coatings are not only used to give it a new look, but also to protect it from blistering summers, freezing winters, soaking rain, and the daily bombardment of UV radiation, without fading, peeling away, and cracking.
  • Thus, with the growing architectural market, there is expected to be a continuous demand in the paints and coatings market in this sector during the forecast period.
  • The country’s primary growth in construction has been largely powered by the massive investments made by the government and the increased inflow of FDI. A few major construction projects are as follows:
    • Junail II
    • Makkah Grand Mosque Redevelopment
    • King Abdullah Port Expansion
    • The Kingdom Tower, Jeddah
    • King Abdullah Economics City of Rabigh 
  • These developments in the construction sector are partly due to the robust economic growth and its positive implications on corporate profits, household income, and the state of public finances.
  • These factors are boosting the demand for architectural paints and coatings market in the country.
