GCC Water-based Paints Market Driver:

Rising Demand for Water-based Paints in Wooden Furniture- The increasing demand for Water-based paints in the market is primarily driven by its rising utilization in wooden furniture. This preference can be attributed to the reduced odor and quick-drying properties of these paints, making them favorable for furniture manufacturers. Additionally, the governments of the GCC countries are focussing on increasing their economic sustainability with the development of the service sector and industrial facilities. This is leading to a rise in the development of a large number of office spaces in the region, which in turn is widely augmenting the need for wooden furniture.

Additionally, with the continued development of residential and hospitality spaces, the need for beds, tables, and other home furniture products is rising substantially. As a result, several furniture producers, including Pan Emirates, OC Home, and others, are expanding in the region to strengthen their presence and enhance income potential. This is widely supporting the demand for water-based paints to provide better aesthetics to furniture products among furniture manufacturers.

GCC Water-based Paints Market Opportunity:

GCC Region's Economic Diversification Initiatives Boost Demand for Water-based Paints – The GCC countries such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, offers promising prospects for water-based paints manufacturers, as the GCC countries are striving to diversify their economies beyond the oil and gas sector. In line with their respective development vision programs, such as Saudi Vision 2030 and UAE Vision 2031, these nations are actively pursuing sustainable and balanced economic growth, which includes commercial infrastructure developments to support the expansion of various sectors and manufacturing units.

Moreover, rising efforts of the GCC country governments to provide affordable accommodation for the surging number of expatriates, by introducing various housing projects such as Sakani Programme, Como residence project, etc., is notably increasing the demand for environmentally friendly paints. As water-based paints are considered a preferred alternative in this context due to their eco-friendly nature and ability to reduce harmful emissions., their demand among the construction firms is anticipated to rise. Thus, augmenting the GCC Water-based Paints Market size during 2023-2028.

GCC Water-based Paints Market Challenge:

Harsh Climatic Conditions Restrains the Adoption of Water-based Paints in GCC– The GCC region is known for its extremely hot and arid climate, with temperatures frequently exceeding 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). Water-based paints are vulnerable to rapid evaporation in such conditions, making it challenging to apply them effectively. High temperatures also cause issues with the paint's drying and curing processes, potentially leading to cracking, peeling, or reduced durability. This potentially restraints the adoption of water-based paints in the GCC region.

GCC Water-based Paints Market Trends:

Consumer Shift Towards Sustainable Lifestyle Driving Demand for Water-based Paints – There has been a noticeable change in consumer behavior, with a growing inclination towards a sustainable lifestyle. This shift is particularly evident among the younger and middle-aged population in the region. Consumers are now placing greater emphasis on environment-friendly alternatives in various aspects of their lives, including their choices in products. This trend has also extended to the preference for paints, as an increasing number of consumers are opting for water-based paints due to their natural composition and reduced negative impact on the environment. In response to this changing consumer demand, water-based paint manufacturers are collaborating with residential and commercial contractors to offer sustainable options. Consequently, the growing availability and product diversity in water-based paints would potentially drive their adoption among consumers. Thereby, positively influencing the revenue growth of the market. For instance,

  • In 2022, Jazeera Paints partnered with a real estate future forum for enhancing the quality of life in real estate development by prioritizing building safety, security, health, and aesthetics. These partnerships and collaborations are expected to drive market growth in the coming years.
