Architectural Coatings 2019-2021: Housing Decline in Early 2019 to be Followed by Growth in Late 2019 and Robust Growth in 2020 and 2021
Forecast Based on Economic Indicator Data through March 2019


The American Coatings Association (ACA) has collaborated for many years with Decision Metrics, a consulting firm with extensive expertise in the coatings industry and in forecasting, to develop a predictive model that attempts to size the architectural coatings market based on various known drivers of demand. These include such things as existing home sales data published by industry groups such as the National Association of Realtors; current government statistics, such as construction figures; and historical data, including the discontinued Census Bureau MA325F report on paints and coatings shipments. The model seeks to measure the current market, based on historical data collected by the government and by industry groups.
