Key Market Trends

Architectural and Decorative Segment to Dominate the Market Demand
  • Decorative paints help protect the surface from the impact of weather, make the surface waterproof, protect the surface from termite attacks, and increase the surface durability, in addition to providing an aesthetic appeal to the building.
  • In addition, they offer protection from corrosion, bacteria, UV radiation, fungus, water seepage, and algae, as well as enhance the life of the structure.
  • The demand for low VOC paints is dominated by the architectural and decorative industry, which is driven by the growing residential, as well as commercial construction activities across the world.
  • Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & African regions have been witnessing strong growth in residential construction, due to huge domestic, as well as foreign investments for setting up industrial units, hospitals, malls, multiplexes, hotels and resorts, and the IT sector.
  • Such construction activities are expected to increase the demand for low VOC paints, during the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market
