By growing in high margin sectors of the coatings industry, PPG has been able to quietly increase market share and technical dominance of the industrial performance coatings market. The acquisition of Ameron, Sigma Kalon, and Spraylat are positive steps in the positioning of their brand as the leader in high tech coatings. Transversely, they have embraced the architechtural coatings markets with their purchase of AkzoNobels architectural coatings division. With housing on the upswing, PPG is in a great position to grow.
