Compared with emulsion or oil paints, distemper has lower price points, comes in multiple colors, can last for up to four years, and is inexpensive. Hence, the product is witnessing increased demand through the forecast period. It is directly applied on cement walls and can also be used in artistic painting.

According to a report published by the World Economic Forum, by the year 2030, 40% of Indians are predicted to live in cities. Increasing urbanization is contributing to the increased demand for real estate, and therefore rise in construction, which elevates the demand for distemper. Increasing construction activities for building high-quality housing and surging renovation & maintenance activities in old buildings is further boosting the demand for distemper through 2027.

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 adversely impacted infrastructural activities as the government mandated the halting of non-essential activities. However, post lockdown, the market recovered with the opening up of the paint and coating business and other industries. In light of growing awareness related to hygiene, many key players have launched new anti-bacterial or anti-viral products. For instance, Asian Paints Limited has introduced Royale Health Shield, a revolutionary product that helps consumers maintain good hygiene standards and bacterial protection for their homes. Moreover, in September 2020, Kansai Nerolac Paints (KNPL) developed India’s First Anti-Viral paint - Excel Virus Guard, an interior emulsion paint with active anti-viral and anti-microbial properties that repels 99.9% germs.

“The demand for economy range products such as distemper paints is continuously growing at a higher range in Tier 2 - 4 cities. These geographic regions provide significant opportunities for growth owing to the growing disposable income and increased awareness among consumers in Tier 2 - 4 cities and rural households. Such consumers are giving more meaning to aesthetics, change in looks, and the appearance of their premises at regular intervals, which has significantly reduced the repainting cycle in these cities. Distemper paints are primarily used in smaller towns and rural regions as they are cheap and can provide better coverage in just two or three coats. Moreover, developing infrastructure in Tier 2 - 4 cities is anticipated to fuel the demand for distemper paints in these cities.”, said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research-based global management consulting firm.
