Executive summary

India’s paint category is competitive, with established brands such as Asian Paints, Berger Nerolac and Akzo Nobel (Dulux) collectively holding 62% of the market share.

While JSW Group is one of India’s top conglomerates, when it came to paint, they were a challenger brand — an outsider with very little clout.
