Top Ten Paint In The World

To say 2010 was a tough year for the paint and coatings industry doesnt even begin to put into perspective the hardship felt throughout the supply chain.

By Tim Wright

 

Spurred by the global recession, revenue plunged across the board in the double-digit ranges.From the leading multinationals to smaller regional players, no paint firm was immune. Twenty- to thirty-year industry veterens told me the sales drops were unprecedented, the likes of which they had never seen before and hope to never see again.

As we go to press were well into the new year and business is much healthier. Looking at the Top Companies for fiscal 2009, not much has changed in terms of who the key players are. Rohm and Haas is gone, its powder business now in the hands of AkzoNobel; Wattyl will be appearing for the last time, its acquisition by Valspar recently announced; and its likely that this report could be Freeworld Coatings curtain call as well.
