An Overview to Paint Brands in the Philippines

In each of the preceding five years, the Philippines’ paint supplies and coating industry have registered a steady growth with now having more than two dozen manufacturers of the products, based on India, Asia Pacific correspondent, Yogender Singh’s (2019) report. Majority of these producers are located around Metro Manila and nearby provinces, noting that the country’s construction and industrial activities are progressively thriving in this region.

In the same report, the following paint and coating companies were identified as major and medium-scale manufacturers:

  • Major Paint and Coating Producers (PH): United Paints, Inc., Nippon Paints, Jotun Philippines, Pacific Paint (Boysen) Philippines, Inc.,, Charter Chemical and Coating Corp., Asian Coatings Philippines, Inc. and Davies. 
  • Medium-scale Paint and Coating Producers (PH): Super Globe, Inc., FH Colors and Coatings, Globesco, Inc., H-Chem Industries, Inc., Chemical Industries, Inc., Mayon Industrial Corp., Treasure Island Industrial Corporation, Roosevelt Sycwin Coating and Wires, Inc., Century Chemical Corp., and Times Paint Corp.

Highlighting the Philippine’s advantageous economic state —a very high degree of urbanization, median age of 23 years, and being one of the fastest-growing economies in Southeast Asia region — the paint and coating industry in the country would likely remain to prosper in the market. It is also worth mentioning the expected greater attractiveness for the country’s investment, both domestic and multinational, in the said industry.

Pacific Paint (Boysen) Philippines

Under the name of Columbus, Pacific Paint or Boysen started producing coatings for the marine, architecture, and industry in the local market in 1953.
