IRL is pleased to announce the publication of the fourth edition of its report A Profile of the Middle Eastern and African Paint Industries. This volume updates the information given in the 2009 edition and it brings up-to-date figures from Saudi Arabia and the UAE, which we reported on in autumn 2008 before the global economic crisis, taking into account the economic impact of the ‘Arab Spring'.

Historical trade data is presented in tables in both volume (tonnes) and value (US$)

For each country a single table paint profile summary will be provided with 2011 data

Included in the report will be a summary of key market data and trends

The main scope of this study is decorative paints. However, for some country markets an overview of the protective, general and wood coatings markets
is also provided.

The research for this study has taken the form of an extensive interview programme with senior executives from the paint and coatings industry in
the above 18 countries.

Interviews have been conducted in English, French and Arabic and all have been carried out between October and December 2011. In addition, a thorough review of published READ MORE >

IRL is pleased to announce the publication of the fourth edition of its report A Profile of the Middle Eastern and African Paint Industries.

The political and social uprising initiated at the end of 2010 known as the Arab Spring had and is continuing to have a huge impact on the political, social and economic systems of many Middle Eastern and North African economies, and the paints industry has not been immune to this unrest.

The Middle Eastern paint market has been estimated at more than 1.8 million tonnes in 2011, and is dominated by the huge Saudi paint and coatings market and the smaller Emirati and Qatari markets. As well as being the leaders in size, these countries also offer significant growth opportunities, in particular Qatar. Qatar's winning bid to host the Football World Cup in 2022 will likely accelerate many large-scale infrastructure projects.

Many Middle Eastern markets are showing positive economic growth rates despite the turmoil in many of global economies (not least in the Eurozone), and have demonstrated their ability to recover relatively quickly from the economic crisis of 2008-09.

The African paint market is estimated at just above 1 million tonnes in 2011 based on the countries researched for this report. In Africa there is good growth mainly in the north of the continent, despite all the North African countries having been directly or indirectly affected by the Arab Spring.

Many paint companies have recently targeted Egypt for investment and with good reason. Egypt has enjoyed a really strong economic growth (up to 10% in recent years) and has become an increasingly important supply base for coatings (in particular to Libya). Despite recent political and social unrest, Egyptian GDP is expected to grow by around 3.5% in 2012.

In the African region, paint market growth is expected to be at around 4% pa in the medium term, which seems to reflect many of the GDP growth rates found across the region, despite large inequalities between countries and sometimes within the same country.

The key trends that stand out from this report include:

- After a massive drop in GDP growth over the last couple of years (GDP grew by only 0.6% in 2010), Saudi Arabia is now experiencing a moderate growth, thanks to the currently very high oil price and the on-going construction of the new economic cities

- After being badly hit by the recession, the construction industries in the United Arab Emirates are now moving forward but at a slower pace compared to the past

- South Africa experienced a significant economic downturn in 2009-2010 and it is still recovering. As a result, the paint market has moved in favour of low-medium quality products

The scope of the report extends to the following countries:

Middle Eastern Region:
- Saudi Arabia
- UAE
- Israel
- Jordan
- Kuwait
- Lebanon
- Oman
- Qatar
- Yemen

African Region:
- South Africa
- Algeria
- Egypt
- Gabon
- Morocco
- Namibia
- Senegal
- Tunisia
- Zambia
