Mr. Sridhar Krishnamoorthy, CEO, Sheenlac said, “J&N is a reputed brand and we are delighted to market its decorative products. Their tagline, “Whenever you see colour, think of us”, is still vividly recalled by customers.

“This move would significantly strengthen Sheenlac’s presence in the North and Northeast markets. Leading products of J&N include Robbialac, Decor, Rainbow, Safeguard and Special Effects. With this JV in place Sheenlac group now has the complete range of products.”
Giving a background of the Indian Paint Industry, Mr. Krishnamoorthy added, “The current size of the paint industry is Rs. 35,000 cr. and is growing between 12 -13% annually. The per capita paint consumption in India is a little over 4 kg and very low compared to developed nations. Therefore, as the country develops and modernizes, the per capita paint consumption is bound to increase, giving us a clear advantage.”

According to Mr. Santosh Sridharan, COO, Sheenlac Paints, “Demand for paints comes from two broad categories. The unorganised sector controls around 35% of the paint market, with the organised sector accounting for the balance 65%. In the unorganised segment, there are about 2,000 units having small and medium sized paint manufacturing plants. Top organised players include Asian, Berger, Nerolac, Akzo Nobel, Shalimar, Jenson & Nicholson and Sheenlac.”

Decoratives: Major segments in decoratives include exterior wall paints, interior wall paints, wood finishes and enamel and ancillary products such as primers, putties etc. Decorative paints account for over 70% of the overall paint market in India. Asian Paints is the market leader in this segment. Demand for decorative paints arises from household painting, architectural and other display purposes. Demand in the festive season (September-December) is significant, as compared to other periods. This segment is price sensitive and is a higher margin business as compared to industrial segment.

Industrial: Three main segments of the industrial sector include automotive coatings, powder coatings and protective coatings. User industries for industrial paints include automobiles engineering and consumer durables. The industrial paints segment is far more technology intensive than the decorative segment.

The paints sector is raw material intensive, with over 300 raw materials (50% petro-based derivatives) involved in the manufacturing process. Since most of the raw materials are petroleum based, the industry benefits from softening crude prices.
