Over the past few years, the market has shifted its preference from paintbrushes to rollers and its demand is projected to rise multiple folds. Increasing structural reform plans along with shifting consumer preferences for standardized painting in less time are accelerating the paint rollers market expansion.

Infrastructural expansion is a major factor that will fuel the demand for paint rollers in the construction industry. Socioeconomic developments and housing subsidies by the regional government will positively impact the residential sector. Additionally, the entertainment sector has emerged as a major growth avenue for the paint rollers business.

Increasing usage of knitted paint rollers

The knitted rollers segment dominated the market with around 60% of the paint rollers market share in 2021. Knitted rollers are likely to hold more paint, thus enabling faster coverage. However, they are highly susceptible to shedding, leaving an unappealing lint on the painted surface. The lint can be spotted easily in a sheen with higher finishes. To avoid this, woven shed-resistant covers are favored for gloss & semi-gloss finishes. The protection against shedding is achieved by a fine blend of woven fabrics. On smooth, semi-smooth, and semi-rough surfaces, these fabrics deliver a lint-free finish. Woven fabric is designed for maximum pick-up and release of the paint.

Rollers with synthetic materials are the most frequently used category in the woven & knitted fabric categories. The synthetic paint rollers market is expected to register 5.8% gains through 2028. However, depending upon the design, such as low & high-end models, the quality can vary. Micro-fiber rollers are relatively new in the market are specifically used for higher sheen finishes. They have a smooth spray-like and lint-free finish that hold more paint.

Polyester rollers are economical, versatile, and well-suited for “DIY” applications, especially on smooth & mildly rough surfaces. They have a good resistance to wear & tear and a limited absorption capability. Thus, they are utilized as disposable rollers for spreading resins and other applications where finishes are of less significance such as industrial flooring.

Rising demand for high pile rollers segment

High pile paint rollers market accounted for more than 35.5% of the revenue share in 2021. Denser pile enables additional emulsion holding ability, enhancing the demand. Sheepskin or lamb wool covers are highly dense and extra-long holding & absorbing in larger amounts. Growing demand from the construction and appliances industries will further drive the industry statistics.
