COVID-19 has created an incredible combination of economic shocks, disruptions to physical industries, and changes to how public spaces and surfaces are perceived. The coatings industry and the industries it serves have all been affected. However, this crisis is not happening in a vacuum, and the coatings industry was already being transformed by a diverse set of megatrends, including the drive for sustainability, the emergence of digital tools, and long term shifts in consumer preferences. Players throughout the value chain will need to re-evaluate their near term strategies and long term R&D plans in response to these challenges.
