Wood coatings are additives or mixtures that are added to the end wood product, primarily to preserve the overall quality of the finished product, in terms of durability, color, and texture. Wood coatings cover a broad range of products including stains, varnishes, paints, and supporting ancillary products for indoor and outdoor purposes.
The global wood paints & coatings market is estimated to surpass US$ 12,342.11 million in terms of revenue by the end of 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period (2021 to 2027).
Surge in furniture industry is one of the major factors contributing to the rising demand for wood paints and coatings. In addition, increasing standard of living and rising disposable income have contributed to the expansion of the furniture industry across the globe. For instance, according to a report submitted by UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe), in 2018, the wood sold to the construction sector in Austria accounted for US$ 3.21 Bn, representing around 2.5% increase as compared to 2017. Furthermore, the same report states that the Austrian furniture industry comprises around 50 industrial plants, most of which are privately-owned medium-sized organizations. Moreover, in 2018, the furniture industry in Austria witnessed an increase of 4.9% as compared to 2017, accounting for US$ 2.50 Bn.
Increasing tourism in different countries is expected to drive investments in the hotel and tourism infrastructure and is expected to aid in growth of the wood paints & coatings market over the forecast period.

The tourism industry accounted for around US$ 14.31 Bn in 2019 to which the hotel industry accounted for 60% to 70% of the economy.
The growing hotel and tourism industry has been estimated to favor growth of the global wood paints & coating market as well. With the rise in the tourist footfall, the hotels and restaurants are significantly increasing capacity by renovating the current wooden floorings and furniture. The rising spending capacity on outdoor furniture and wooden decks and floors has been estimated to favor growth of the wood paints and coating market in Croatia in the near future.
Among regions, Asia Pacific held dominant position in the global wood paints & coatings market in 2020, accounting for 61.1% market share in terms of revenue, followed by Europe.
