PITTSBURGH — The Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) announced the publication of “A Survey of the United States Industrial Maintenance Coatings Market,” a report based on a nationwide survey of coatings manufacturers and painting contractors. The study is designed to identify and forecast trends and potential growth areas in the domestic protective-coatings market, the organization said.

The 46-page market study includes breakdowns and comparisons of coatings-manufacturer sales and contractor revenues by end use, new construction vs. maintenance, selected applications, geographic area, substrate type, and surface-preparation method. Also included are comparisons of manufacturers’ and contractors’ estimated three- to five-year growth expectations and other information.

The report is offered for $150 for SSPC members and $250 for non-members. For more information, call 412/281.2331; e-mail books@sspc.org; or visit www.sspc.org.
