Prolific Growth in Urban Areas to Accelerate Demand for Paints and Coatings

Lucrative economic opportunities offered by large cities are leading to exponential growth of urban areas worldwide. A report released by the UN in 2018 predicts that as much as 70% of the global population will be residing in urban agglomerations by 2050. Rising numbers of urban dwellers will inevitably surge the demand for housing and commercial infrastructures, fueling growth in the construction industry and by extension, boosting demand for construction materials. Paints and coatings play a key role in providing not just aesthetic appeal to buildings, but also their sustaining the structural strength. For instance, polyurethane resins are scratch resistant and provide excellent thermal stability, making them ideal candidates for coating interiors of buildings. Urban development in cities worldwide will, therefore, create multiple opportunities for the growth of this market in the next few decades.
