Paint Stores

U.S. paint store sales increased at a 7.5% compound annual rate between 2010 and 2014. Sales gains benefited from the recovery in the housing market. Sales to builders expanded with the surge in new home building and homeowner purchases increased along with the upturn in existing home sales. Paint stores have also been better able to compete with home centers and other big boxes since the major big box chains cut back expansion plans over the recession.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Paint Stores. This First Look also provides data on consumer purchases and retail sales of paint and allied products including interior paint, exterior paint, stains and varnishes, painting equipment and supplies, and wall coverings. In addition, competition from home centers, hardware stores, warehouse clubs and supercenters, and other retailers is tracked. Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.
