The Central European paint market
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/r7gf8k/a_profile_of_the ] was estimated at
approximately 1,346,550 tonnes in 2011 and is expected to grow to 1,531,900 tonnes by
2016. Growth is forecast to vary across the region, with the markets of Poland, Slovakia
and several Balkan markets expected to exhibit higher growth rates. Average growth in
paint demand across the whole region is expected at about 2.6% p.a., underpinned by such
simple factors as growth in industrial output, rising salaries and greater disposable
incomes, and moderate growth of the construction industries, recovering from the economic
crisis of 2009.
– Poland is by far the largest paint consumer in the Central European region,
accounting for about 44% of the total market.
– In 2011 up to mid 2012 there was an upsurge in the demand for architectural paints
in Poland due to construction works related to the Euro 2012 football tournament.
– As much of the impact of low-VOC and REACH legislation has taken place in Poland,
the local architectural paints market is now saturated with water-borne paints and this
segment continues to increase.
– The Czech Republic is in second place among Central European markets with a share of
consumption of 13.2%. This is the market with the highest paint per capita consumption
indicator (16.9kg/head) in the CEE region.
– The Balkan market is placed at almost 129,000 tonnes, with the fastest growing
demand for paints in Serbia.
– In many of the markets the architectural coatings segment tends to account for quite
a large majority of paint demand. The percentage share of these coatings varies from
country to country and can reach up to 79% (in Bulgaria).
– There is an evident trend of growing consumption of water-borne and low-VOC paints,
driven by the high impact of the environmental legislation on the market and increasing
interest of consumers in the ecological properties of the products.
