Published: 23 Mar 2017

The Kenyan and Tanzanian decorative paints and coatings market was worth a combined value of $138.7 million in 2015 and is expected to show promising growth (CAGR of 6%–7%) over the next 5 years. This is due to the significant growth in population and the middle class, government policies that support the development of infrastructure, growing urban migration, and a movement towards cleaner technology. Decorative paints and coatings constitute the greatest portion of the coatings industry within the two countries. Water-based paints constitute approximately 70% of the decorative paints and coatings market. The Kenyan and Tanzanian decorative paints and coatings market is a competitive and price-sensitive market. Lower prices give market participants a competitive advantage, but it is very difficult to achieve, as most of the raw materials are imported. In addition, there is higher brand loyalty in Tanzania; thus any new competitor will have to invest more to market its product. The top 3 market participants (Crown Paints Ltd, Basco Paints, and Insignia Ltd) had a combined revenue market share of over 74.0% in 2015.
