Coating Manufacturers Ireland & The Irish Coating Industry

Outdoor structures, whether industrial or residential are challenged greatly by the wind- and sea battered nature of being an island in the Atlantic Ocean. And while the aftermath of changeable weather conditions are a major factor to include when analyzing the Irish coating market, the love residents in Ireland have for nature is as well.

Renewable energy is one of the largest growth industries, especially on farms and the countryside. Therefor solar panel coating (nano), wind turbine coating (anti corrosion) and “green” (water based) coatings are in high demand.

While there are no exact numbers, the Irish coatings-, paints- and ink industry is estimated to be worth more than 100 billion euro’s and employs over 200,000 people. Ireland also has some big paint and coating brands of its own. For example Colourtrend (decorative) and Dycon (anti rust, surface paints).

Besides home based brands, these are typical paint and coating brands you will find in Ireland:

  • Blackfriar (High-Heat Resistant paint)
  • Crown Paints (Interior & Exterior paints)
  • Dulux (Architectural paint)
  • Farrow & Ball (Decorative paint)
  • Hammerite (metal paints)
  • McConnells (Industrial Coating)
  • Plasti-kote (Industrial sprays)
  • Sherwin Williams (Marine coating and Antifouling)
  • Sikkens (Professional coating systems)
  • Zeroflame (Intumescent and Fire retardant)
