The increasing market for consumer goods and automobiles is also propelling the growth of the paints and coatings market. Based on end-use, the paints and coatings market is segmented into three categories: architectural and decorative; industrial; and marine. Architectural and decorative paints and coatings can be further segmented into water-based and solvent-based. Similarly, industrial paints and coatings can be classified into water-based, solvent-based, powder, and UV-based. Architectural and decorative paints and coatings are used mainly applied on interior and exterior walls of houses and corporate buildings. Based on their formulation, there are basically two types of architectural and decorative paints and coatings: water-based and solvent-based. Based on type, architectural and decorative paints and coatings paints are mainly classified into emulsions and distempers. Distempers are costlier than emulsions and account for lesser market share as compared to emulsions. Industrial paints and coatings are used by several industries, including machinery manufacturing, automotive, and consumer goods. Based on their formulation, industrial paints and coatings can be segmented into four categories: water-based, solvent-based, powder, and UV-based. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (U.S. Department of Commerce), the durable goods industry grew from USD 958.7 billion in 2010 to USD 1096.4 billion in 2013. The construction industry in the country grew from USD 539.1 billion in 2010 to USD 611.4 billion in 2013.
