It has been a race for the top seed in the global coatings industry, lately. Akzo Nobel lost its number one position to PPG last year. Regarding the latest developments, Sherwin-Williams might become the largest coatings producer worldwide, as soon as the acquisition of Valspar is completed. Among the 100 largest paints and coatings of the world are many European-based companies.
