The Durability + Design (DD) online magazine’s recent News + Features article announced that there is growth in the global market for green paints and coating.  This information was taken from a report published by P & S Market Research, Global Paints and Coatings Market Size, Development, Growth and Demand Forecast to 2020.  I think this is great as an overall goal to limit VOC‘s and promote low organic compounds in paint and coating.  My question is:  how green are these products if they are not complying with Green Seal requirements and are not sold as certified products?  To me an increase in a global market in the paint and coating category has a little tinge of green washing and makes me question the report.
