WHY AFRICA?

Interest in Africa’s emerging coatings markets is well-established and South Africa is among the largest and most influential of these markets. Producing around 324,000 litres of paint per year, with a value of approximately US$947M, the country’s thriving paint industry is home to around 320 coatings manufacturers and is dominated by the decorative paint segment, although it is also an attractive market for the automotive and architectural coatings industries.
