The American Coatings Association, ACA, is pleased to announce the availability of updated figures for its U.S. Paint & Coatings Industry Market Analysis: 2010-2015.

The discontinuation of the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Industrial Report program, which had collected and published quarterly and annual information on shipments of paints, coatings, and allied products (both dollars and gallons), has created an information gap and eliminated an important benchmark showing the state of the coatings industry; ACA is stepping up to provide industry accurate and timely data on the industry that will support their strategic decision-making, in a newly updated Executive Summary to its highly regarded U.S. Paint & Coatings Industry Market Analysis: 2010-2015. In addition, ACA is also providing an updated chapter on Mergers and Acquisitions within the industry that reviews and analyzes the major transactions that have occurred since the study was published in early 2012.

The new Executive Summary, replete with newly updated figures for both 2011 and 2012, depicts the size of key market segments in both volume and gallons; provides estimates for 2013; and extends the five-year forecast for the industry to 2017. This leading market study profiles performance of the coatings industry’s 21 market sectors, offering insightful analysis, and provides projections for sector performance for the five-year period. The report, which also incorporates interviews with key industry experts whose insights provide a solid base for analyzing the impact of trends and issues in major market segments along the paint and coatings supply chain, is the paint and coatings industry’s go-to source for executive business planning.

Current purchasers of the U.S. Paint & Coatings Industry Market Analysis: 2010-2015will be able to access the updated study through their current subscriptions; and prospective purchasers still have the opportunity to access this strategic business planning too, including updates.

Prepared for the American Coatings Association by The ChemQuest Group, Inc., a highly regarded global strategic management consulting firm with 37 years of specialization in the coatings, adhesives and specialty chemicals market sectors, the study provides not only authoritative data, but insightful analysis of industry trends. This latest edition of the Market Analysis also offers several valuable and exciting new features, including an industry structure assessment of each market segment using Porter “Five Forces” analysis. This analysis offers purchasers a ‘snapshot in time’ of each market segment, and allows for direct comparisons among coatings market segments with regard to their structural characteristics. Additionally, purchasers of the study will receive the additional benefit of a full day of on-site consulting from ChemQuest (not including travel costs).

The Market Analysis also features special chapters addressing industry mergers and acquisitions, regulatory issues, raw material trends, technology trends, and green/sustainability issues.
