The Chemark Consulting Group has
released a new report titled, “U.S.
Coatings Industry,” which offers analysis
of the U.S. Industrial Coatings markets
over the next five to 10 years.
According to the report, the overall
annualized growth rate for the five
years, starting with 2004 and ending in
2009, is estimated to be no more than
2.4%. Some declines are expected in
some of the 114 segments studied due to
shifts in supply chain, focus on new
value propositions and base end-use
geographical location movements.
In its 10th Edition of the “U.S.
Coatings Industry” study, Chemark estimates
the U.S. Industrial Coatings market
consumed 264 million dry gallons
and 470 million wet gallons in 2004. The
report analyzes coating consumption by
the ten major technology systems including
solvent-based high solids, solventbased
low solids, two-component low
solids, two-component high solids, twocomponent
water low solids, two-component
water high solids, emulsions, water
soluble, powder and radiation-cured.
