What do you see as the most pressing issues facing the coatings industry? The Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings (JPCL) is preparing the annual forecast feature for its January 2016 issue—and your input is requested.

Annual Industry Forecast

Last year, JPCL editors talked to thought leaders in all areas of the coatings industry—manufacturing, raw materials, contracting, equipment, trade associations, education and more—to collect their insights on emerging trends and business developments.

Each year, JPCL shares insights on emerging trends and business developments from thought leaders in all areas of the coatings industry; 2016 survey results will be shared in the January issue of JPCL.

Select engineers, specifiers, scientists, contractors and executives shared their perspectives about what they anticipated in the year ahead, and how issues relating to regulations, government and politics, the global economy, the environment, materials, equipment and more would impact the way we work.

Now it’s your turn to tell us what you think.

Take the 2016 Industry Forecast Survey

The 2016 forecast will feature two sections. In part one, leaders from major protective and marine coatings companies will share their outlook for the year ahead.

In part two, we would also like to share what JPCL/PaintSquare readers have to say.

Please take some time to complete this short, 20-question survey on topics such as:

  • The working relationship between inspectors and contractors
  • Research and development for coatings
  • Advancements in cleaning and application technologies
  • Consolidation among coatings suppliers
  • Specifications
  • Unions
  • Business challenges and opportunities
  • Hiring and workforce matters

Your participation will add insight into what’s on the minds of those throughout the coatings industry—contractors, inspectors, engineers, consultants, coatings and equipment suppliers, educators, researchers, formulators, raw materials developers and more—and what is important to you.

We look forward to sharing your thoughts on the state of the coatings industry in January. Thanks in advance for your contribution.
