Painters in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Painters in the US

Operators in the Painters industry offer services ranging from exterior wall alterations to bridge and ship painting. As a result of real estate growth and expansion, demand for industry services across several construction markets has significantly increased over the five years to 2018. The residential market, a key source of industry revenue, has been especially supportive. During the five-year period, broad improvements in the US economy enabled strong growth of the housing market. In addition to an expanding market for new homes, many households interested in home renovations have continued to hire contractors to paint their homes as per capita disposable income has increased. Over the five years to 2023, industry growth is expected to moderate. Higher corporate profit levels and rising consumer spending will increase demand for industry services in the retail, office, hospitality and industrial sectors. During this period, housing starts and the value of residential construction are expected to experience subdued growth compared with the prior period.
