The Paint Research Association (PRA), as an independent membership organization, is uniquely placed to comment on developments affecting innovation and growth in the coatings industry.

In this Keynote Address, drivers of market and technology change will be considered and some of the key trends presented, together with the challenges and opportunities for chemicals and coatings companies.
