Painting by numbers
Globalization is set to impact on this industry one way or the other as increasing numbers of foreign paint manufacturing companies set up operations in the US. The market is also likely to see fewer wholesale firms supplying their products as the number of manufacturer-owned stores rises and as industry consolidation continues. In the future, wholesalers will need to improve their services to maintain and increase sales in this mature industry.
This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in wholesaling paints, varnishes, and similar coatings; pigments; wallpaper; and supplies, such as paint brushes and rollers.Smaller firms within this industry purchase paint from paint manufacturers for resale to downstream customers and do not generally manufacture paint themselves. However, larger paint manufacturing companies may have wholesale divisions that operate within this industry.
