WASHINGTON, DC ? The fourth edition of the Global Paint & Coatings Industry Market Analysis (GMA) Report (2013-2018), published by the International Paint and Printing Ink Council (IPPIC), is available for pre-order at an early bird discount. This special rate is available through November 14.

The new, expanded edition of the GMA provides comprehensive market research covering the global paint and coatings industry in over 175 countries. Topics of relevance to coatings manufacturers, end users, raw materials suppliers, and others interested in the industry will be addressed in the report, which covers three primary categories of coatings (decorative, original equipment manufacturers and special purpose), as well as the many sub-segments within those categories.

Content is delivered in an easy-to-read format with charts, tables and other illustrations that highlight the study’s most pertinent data. In an effort to offer even more valuable information, the 2014 GMA will be expanded to include the following new material.

  • Additional Forecast Data: In addition to five-year historical and forecast data by country and segment that has appeared in previous reports, the 2014 GMA will include an additional two-year historical and forecast view for each country.
  • Raw Material Chapter: The study’s Raw Material chapter will be expanded to include additional details and a new section on emerging technologies and trends, including sustainability.
  • New Geographic Sub-Segments: In addition to the geographic segments covered in previous editions of the study, the 2014 edition drills down to offer a broader range of geographic sub-segments, providing information on more than 175 countries.

The report will be published in December 2014. To reserve a copy at the early bird price, visit http://www.paint.org/globalmarketanalysis.html.
