The Paint, Coatings and Printing Ink Manufacturing industry declined at the start of the past five years as a result of falling demand from mature end-user industries before returning to growth more recently. This has led to a degree of consolidation. Another characteristic of the industry is that it is dominated by a few global players with strong national, regional and global brand names at different price points and in various product segments. A number also operate on a vertically integrated basis so that competition occurs across the supply chain, rather than just at the manufacturing level.
Companies in this industry are predominantly involved in the manufacture of paints, varnishes and similar coatings (such as enamels or lacquers) along with mastics and sealants. The industry also includes those involved in the manufacture of printing ink.
