The Paint Industry


This report focuses on the paint industry in South Africa from 2017 to April 2019. The industry is valued at R13bn and employs approximately 15,000 people. The market is dominated by decorative paint manufacturing and sales, which account for around 80% of the market, with major players, and brands, including Kansai Plascon Africa and ICI Dulux. The paint industry in South Africa has continued to adopt manufacturing strategies to meet environmental and other regulations, including the recent move to further reduce the lead content in paint. The most significant challenges facing the industry are skills shortages and competition from cheap imports.
