Economic growth, strict environmental regulations, growing investment in infrastructure, and increasing demand for green and environment-friendly coatings in the Asia-Pacific region are contributing to decorative paint and coatings market growth. Apac Decorative Paints & Coatings Market Is Forecast To Reach $36,513.5 Million By 2025, After Growing At A CAGR of 6.4% During 2020-2025. 

Decorative paints and coatings are long-lasting, have low odour, and hygienic coats that are perfect for every unique residential and commercial building. The market of decorative paints & coatings is growing at a significant rate as its demand is on an upsurge from the building and construction industries owning to its various functional benefits, such as conduction, color retention properties, moisture vapor permeable, light absorption, insulation, anti-skid property, reflection, and more.

Government initiatives in India such as ‘Smart City Mission’ and ‘Housing for All’ are projected to drive the growth in the construction sector which, in turn, will benefit the APAC decorative paints and coatings market during the forecast period. According to the Department for International Trade (DIT), New Zealand is investing heavily to update and create a new critical infrastructure to cope with increased demand. An estimated $129 billion is expected to be spent on capital projects between 2019 and 2029. Thus, with the increasing government initiatives and investments, the building and construction industry is flourishing in the APAC region, which will propel the decorative paints & coatings market growth in the Asia Pacific.

The prevalence of COVID-19 pandemic situation has slightly weakened the demand for decorative paints & coatings in the year 2020 due to the lockdown. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Chinese economy contracted by 6.8 percent (YoY) in quarter 1 Contrary to the trend prevalent in the industry in general, the market of APAC decorative paints & coatings is witnessing a declining demand from the construction activities such as from the construction of facades, walls, and more. In addition, a decline in business for at least five months during 2020 coupled with lower demand from a few major markets has put pressure on the profitability of APAC decorative paints & Coatings manufacturers and vendors. However, due to the recapitulation of construction activities in various Asia Pacific countries, the demand for decorative paints & coatings for facades is estimated to rise in the upcoming years. In June 2020, the Australian Government has announced the “HomeBuilder initiative”, a time-limited grant program to help the residential construction market to bounce back from the Coronavirus crisis. The initiative provides eligible owners (including first home buyers) with a grant of $25,000 to build a new home or to renovate an existing home. The contract is to be signed in between 4 June 2020 and 31 December 2020. 

China holds a major share of the APAC decorative paints & coatings market owing to the flourishing building and construction sector in the country. According to the International Trade Administration (ITA), the Chinese construction industry is forecasted to grow at an annual average of 5% in real terms between 2019 and 2023. In June 2019, China won the bid to host the 2023 Asian Cup football tournament due to which it plans to construct nine new football-only stadiums by the end of 2021. China has proposed Beijing, Changsha, Chengdu, Chongqing, Dalian, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Shanghai, Suzhou, Tianjin, Wuhan, and Xi’an as host cities, and the country plans on delivering new stadia by the end of 2021. Minor renovation work is planned for the National Stadium in Beijing, along with the Tianjin Olympic Centre Stadium, Hangzhou Olympic Sports Expo Centre Main Stadium, Changsha’s Helong Sports Centre Stadium, and Guangzhou Tianhe Sports Centre Stadium. In addition, the ongoing State Council Green Building Action Plan, launched in 2014, mandates that public buildings such as schools, hospitals, museums, stadiums, and affordable housing, as well as any single building area over 20,000 square meters, such as airports, railway stations, hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, offices, and other large public buildings, must meet the green building standards of China’s 3-Star Rating System GBEL (The Green Building Evaluation Label). According to the Energy Foundation, by the end of 2018, cities and towns across the country had built a total of 2.5 billion square meters of green buildings, accounting for nearly 40 percent of new residential construction in urban areas. Thus, the increasing government investments and initiatives in China are propelling the building and construction sector, which will then boost the decorative paints & coatings market.
