The growing number of DIY painters

A significant driver that is presumed to define the growth trajectory of the painting tools industry is the Do-It-Yourself or DIY trend. Millennials being the biggest consumers of DIY painting kits are increasingly spending on cost-effective painting tools that simplify painting, enhance appeal, and reduce mess.

Enlisted below is a list of the top professional painting tools used by DIYers:

  • Edge painting tool: Painting edges always demand perfection, but the Accubrush edge-painting tool makes cutting-in quick and easy. Users need a little practice to paint perfectly straight lines like a pro along moldings and ceilings.
  • Handy paint bucket: The biggest challenge with paint trays is that they hold less paint and need to be refilled at short intervals. But, DIYers have got the Wooster 4-gallon paint bucket which certainly holds more paint than a tray, and the paint can last really long without refilling. Moreover, in contrast to a tray, it is very handy and can be easily moved around the area being painted without paint spilling out of it.
  • Paint spout:  If the spill is uncontrolled, pouring paint can get messy in no time. These days DIYers are attaching handy spout snaps onto the rim of the can/container to direct the paint where they want to transfer it. Besides this, the spout prevents the paint from flowing outside the can and making the floor or drop cloth untidy – making this device one of the most viable professional painting tools.
  • Mini hand masker: Masking often enhances the end result of a painting job by stopping paint from invading unwanted areas. The mini mask applicator from Scotch ensures that the masking tape is dispensed in a straight line, without breakage and at high speed. To add to users’ convenience the applicator has a built in cutter which slices it off at the end of the run.

Revival of historical treasures

Renovation of historical, residential, and commercial spaces will add positive impetus to the painting tools market outlook, as painting is a pivotal part of every renovation project. Given the large number of aging historical assets across the globe, the painting equipment industry is set to strike gold from renovation and remodeling of such giant structures.

For instance, Gary City Center Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has reportedly made plans to invest approximately $1 million on renovating the historic City Hall, a vintage Neoclassical style building. For the uninitiated, the National Register of Historic Places is the United States federal government’s authorized list of sites, districts, buildings, objects, and structures considered worthy of preservation due to their historical significance.

Having said that, it’s certain that similar remodeling initiatives undertaken by governments across the globe for preserving and promoting their rich heritage will influence painting tools industry growth trends.
