Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “China Water-based Coating Industry Report, 2014-2018” report to their offering.

So far, China has become the world’s largest coating production and consumption country. In 2014, China’s coating output reached 16,482 kt, accounting for 38% of the global total and consisting of 5,357 kt of construction coatings and 11,125 kt of industrial coatings (including 1,780 kt of automobile coatings).

China’s water-based coating market is now dominated by international brands represented by BASF, Axalta and AkzoNobel. Moreover, these major international brands are still expanding their water-based coating capacities in China to further enhance competitiveness.
