As prices rise, dealers are facing increasing pressure to survive. Many people who have been engaged in the coatings industry for 20 to 30 years say that there has never been such a big price increase.


Many top brands have just risen several times in September, and have risen several times in October, with an increase of 45%, and some accessories have risen by 120%.


For many distributors, the price of paint is rising every day. If you grab products from suppliers to stock up, your own financial pressure will be too great. But don't grab it, get the goods when necessary, and the supplier has no goods, which is very difficult. At the same time, with the increasing pressure from upstream to downstream to release price increases, store rents and labor costs are rising year by year, and operating pressure is increasing.


Due to rising raw material costs and disruptions in the supply chain, it seems only a matter of time before the price of coatings rises further. Akzo Nobel said that due to high costs and shortages of additives, petrochemical products, and packaging materials, the price of coating products will rise by 9% in 2021 and will rise by 14% to 15% by the end of the year. This trend will continue until the middle of 2022, and prices will rise further early next year, and the increase is likely to reach the mid-point.
