    Market Insights

    The Traffic Marking Solutions Market is likely to grow at a significant CAGR of >4% during the forecast period to reach a value of US$ 3.9 billion in 2027.

    What are traffic marking solutions?

    Traffic marking solutions include different types of marking materials and devices. They are used to direct, guide, and regulate road users and help reduce vehicular confusion on roads, which ultimately enhances road safety and ensures smooth traffic flow. These products come in a wide range of colors to indicate different uses of roads. High contrast, abrasion resistance, durability, and night and wet reflectivity are among some of their key properties. 

    Market Dynamics

    Development of micro-mobility infrastructure, increase in the dimension of roads & highways’ marking, R&D on environmentally friendly marking materials, and evaluation of high-performance markings for automated driving are among some of the key emerging trends that would support the market’s growth.

    Covid-19 Impact

    The outbreak of the pandemic hampered the growth of the market significantly, as there were closures and restrictions on manufacturing sites, as well as constraints in the supply of raw materials, resulting in a shortage of traffic marking products due to low production during that period. The prices of these products also increased due to their shortage and increased prices of raw materials. Many road marking projects across regions were halted or delayed for a range of reasons, including scarcity of marking products, safety measures to prevent any health risks among workers, and greater focus of governments on the healthcare sector.

    The market gradually began to recover in 2021, with the resumption of production sites and the availability of raw materials, as well as the resumption of halted marking projects. An increase in the dimension of different types of traffic lines, development of micro-mobility markings, increased concern towards road safety to reduce road accidents, rising road maintenance spending, and further expansion of road networks are likely to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.

    Recent Acquisitions

    The traffic marking solutions market is gradually consolidating as the major companies are performing mergers & acquisitions to strengthen their geographical footprints across the world and to further expand their offerings to different markets. Below is a list of some of the recent acquisitions in the market.

    • In January 2022Geveko Markings acquired Ore Peinture to gain a significant position in the French traffic marking solutions market.
    • In October 2021SWARCO AG acquired Hitex International Group to widen its presence in the UK’s traffic marking solutions market.
    • In December 2020PPG Industries, Inc. acquired Ennis Flint, Inc. and further expanded its coating business to high-performance pavement marking solutions.

    Segments Analysis


    List of Sub-Segments

    Dominant and Fastest-Growing Segments

    Product Type

    Paints, Thermoplastics, 2-Components, Tapes, and Markers.

    Paints dominated the market. Thermoplastics are expected to remain the fastest-growing product type during the forecast period.

    Application Type

    Roads & Highways, Airport Marking, Parking Lot, and Others.

    Roads & highways are expected to remain the biggest demand generators for traffic marking solutions during the forecast period. Airport marking is anticipated to remain the fastest-growing application type during the same period.


    North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World.

    Asia-Pacific is likely to remain the dominant and fastest-growing region during the forecast period.



    By Product Type

    The traffic marking solutions market is segmented into paints, thermoplastics, 2-components, tapes, and markers. Paints dominated the product type segment of the market in 2021, owing to their extensive usage in different regions. Furthermore, the ability to be applied in warm weather combined with various features such as ease of application, low price, and quick application would support the product's dominance over the forecast period. Paints are further bifurcated into two types, i.e., solvent-borne and water-borne paints. Rigorous regulations to limit VOC emissions and the adoption of environmentally friendly materials are supporting water-borne paints to replace solvent-based paints.

    Thermoplastics are gaining traction in the market and are poised to overtake the paints segment as they are more durable, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly alternatives to VOC-emitting paints. Furthermore, they have high reflectivity and are less expensive than tapes and two-component marking materials. In cold weather, they cure quickly, whereas, in hot weather, they take longer time to cure.

    By Application Type

    The market is segmented into roads & highways, airport marking, parking lots, and others. Roads & highways are expected to remain the biggest demand generators for traffic marking solutions during the forecast period. Further expansion of road networks to improve connectivity, along with their frequent maintenance would bolster the demand for marking solutions for roads & highways. Marking solutions are used to show numerous types of markings on streets and highways, which include longitudinal marking, transverse marking, hazard marking, block marking, arrow marking, directional marking, etc.

    Regional Analysis

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest as well as the fastest-growing region in the traffic marking solutions market during the forecast period, owing to the region's largest share of the global road network, with China, India, Japan, and Australia being the major contributors. The region has the largest network of roads, which has expanded to more than 10 million kilometers. Increasing spending toward roadway infrastructure and improving road connectivity in the region, as well as a growing focus of regional governments on road maintenance and repair, would underpin the regional market growth. Furthermore, various countries in the region are implementing novel initiatives to improve road safety by investing in new types of road markings, further giving additional impetus to the demand. 

    Key Players

    The market is highly populated with the presence of several local, regional, and global players. Major players in the market are widening their presence in key markets around the world by opening new manufacturing and distribution sites, building new partnerships, and acquiring several local players in the market.
