Coatings Industry Employment Down in 2012 Economic Census

The Census Bureau is beginning to roll out the results of the 2012 Economic Census and has published some data on the coatings industry. A key metric, certainly when considering the economic and political impact of the industry, is the number of employees in different states. The industry itself employs a much smaller workforce than it did five years prior, currently employing 33,906 workers, down from 42,035 in 2007 (although the value of shipments per establishment rose 22.3% during this same period, reflecting a large increase in productivity). The workforce continues to be concentrated in the Midwest, along with Texas and California, as shown below. While state level data is not yet available, Ohio has traditionally had the largest workforce in the industry, followed by Illinois and Texas.
