The Saudi Arabia Paint Additives Market is expected to witness around 3.91% CAGR during 2021-26. Paint additives help enhance the properties or behavior of paints and eliminate the various problems that arise during paint application. The growth of the Saudi Arabia Paint Additives Market attributes principally to rapid urbanization and numerous ongoing & upcoming infrastructure developments in the country.
In addition, massive investments by the Saudi government in promoting the implementation of projects like the construction of mega-city ‘Neom’ project and the Red Sea Project – Phase 1, which is due to be completed in 2022, is another crucial aspect expected to boost the paint additives market during 2021-26.
Moreover, paint additives are beneficial in enhancing the aesthetic appearance of both interiors & exteriors of buildings. Hence, the rising population is augmenting the construction of residential & commercial buildings across Saudi Arabia and, in turn, fueling the paint additives market growth. On the other hand, the demand for paint additives is also increasing astronomically in Saudi's automotive industry, owing to their ability to protect the surface of vehicles from damages.
Nevertheless, rising environmental concerns & increasing demand for eco-friendly additives are providing lucrative growth opportunities to the market. However, the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 led to the halt in major construction projects across Saudi Arabia, which, in turn, hampered the growth of the paint additives market, further states the research report, "Saudi Arabia Paint Additives Market Analysis, 2021."
Key Questions Answered in the Study
Rheology Modifiers Acquire the Largest Share in the Saudi Arabia Paint Additives Market
