Paint Wholesaling in the US
Over the five years to 2019, improving macroeconomic shifts have promoted industry growth, but increasing competition from paint manufacturers that sell their products directly to consumers has hampered growth. Housing starts, the industrial production index and the value of construction have increased over the five years to 2019. Since the industry is highly dependent on demand from the construction and industrial manufacturing sectors, strong growth in both has increased demand for industry products during the period. Moving forward, demand for paints and other coatings is expected to remain strong, driven by stabilizing construction activity, increased private spending on durable goods and home improvements and continued investment in public infrastructure projects. Rising competition will continue to create challenging operating conditions for merchant wholesalers.
Establishments in this industry wholesale paints, wallpaper, paintbrushes, rollers and other related products. Industry operators purchase paint and other coatings from manufacturers for resale to downstream customers; they do not generally manufacture paint themselves. Retail sales outlets of paint manufacturers are not included in this industry; however, manufacturers’ internal wholesale divisions are included in this industry.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
