Architectural Segment Sets Growth Pace for Coatings in Western Europe
Architectural uses are described as "very much the current motor of growth" for the coatings industry in Western Europe, a situation that bodes well for suppliers of decorative, protective, coil and powder coatings used for architectural applications, the report says. Decorative coatings are reported to account for 62% of the total market, at slightly less than 4 million mt.
The report focuses in particular on the decorative, protective and marine coatings sectors, and includes sections on mergers and acquisitions; coatings markets in the top five countries, the Benelux region, Scandinavia, and other countries; future directions; and a directory of coatings manufacturers.
