DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Coatings Market Report: 2008 Edition" report to their offering. The paint and coatings industry is going through a phase of acquisitions, with market share shifting from large US and European based manufacturers to those based in Asian countries including Japan, Korea, China and India. Asian and Eastern European markets are showing growth potential for industrial coatings. North America is currently the leading country in global coating industry, while China is the largest consumer of coating additives in Asia: approximately one third of the market. India’s market is dominated by the decorative paint and coatings segment.

Growth in the marine coatings market can be attributed to a surge in new building in the AsiaPacific region, as well as a high demand for exported goods from the region. The automotive coatings market is growing on the back of increasing new car sales in Europe and growth in car manufacturing in China.
