ACA’s indispensable guide to the coatings industry — the ACA Industry Market Analysis, 9th Edition (2014-2019) — prepared by the ChemQuest Group, includes authoritative figures for value and volume of each coatings segment, and projects growth rates and forecasts for the industry through 2019. This value-added feature is intended to address the absence of the detailed industry figures previously provided by the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Industrial Reports on the industry, which were discontinued after 2010. ACA’sMarket Analysis reflects a high degree of primary research conducted by the ChemQuest team, along with extensive input from a large number of key industry leaders, and will correct many earlier Census-based errors in a variety of market sectors. As a result, it is the most authoritative study on the U.S. paint and coatings industry ever published by ACA.
