International Coatings Forum for discussing industry issues

The 21st International Exhibition of Raw Materials, Equipment and Technologies for the Paint and Coating Industry and Special Industrial Coatings, Interlakokraska 2017, has kicked off at Expocentre to present new domestic and foreign paint and coating products, raw materials and equipment. More than 200 companies from 25 countries have put their new products on display on an area of 3,500 square meters.

The Interlakokraska event program traditionally includes the International Coatings Forum organized by the Russian Coatings journal and Expocentre with the support of Centrlack Association.
Forum participants will spend two days discussing pressing problems of the industry and searching for solutions. The paint and coating market has been exhibiting inspiring trends. In the words of Olga Andrutskaya, chief editor of the LKM journal, the growth is not big, around 3%, but it is definitely an achievement, considering the general economic situation in the country. Far from all industries consuming paint and coatings posted growth in 2016. The industry has yet to regain the 2014 pre-crisis level.
Meanwhile, the global paint and coating industry has been witnessing mergers and blending between majors and stricter environmental laws. No doubt, these trends will impact the Russian market. Specialists are predicting fiercer competition and a higher demand for safer products, especially from public catering and service companies.
