Rising paint demand and a shortage of capacity are just two of the characteristics of the Thai paint scene, making the market an attractive alternative to China for exports. The Thai government continues to make successful efforts to attract inward investment and is spending trillions of Thai baht on infrastructure projects and upgrades, which will assure continued demand in the future. One of the most prominent areas of investment is within the automotive industry but white goods and furniture manufacture are also strong, extending good potential to compliant coatings technologies, which the Thai government views favourably.

A Profile of the Thai Paint Industry includes information on the following topics:

- Paint production
- Paint imports and exports
- Paint consumption and per capita demand
- Brief information on paint producers
- Trends in end-user industries
