PPG 2022 Global Trends Book

11 Countries 35 Stylists 8 Major Business Segments More than a century of expertise. There is a uniqueness to PPG’s forecasting expertise in that we use a fact-based approach to identify color direction for more surfaces than any company in the world. From automotive to architectural; consumer electronics to aerospace; industrial to packaged goods. The benefit is that every industry informs the other. Our color stylists analyze exterior and interior commercial and residential colors, styles and textures four years in advance, and produce hospitality market insights for architects and builders to create spaces for luxury, comfort and impact. Our annual forecasting workshop is the culmination of months of research and customer intel that provides a truly global, validated palette of color direction. 2021 was a year of firsts, and our annual color workshop was no exception. Despite hosting a fully virtual event, we preserved and enhanced the integrity and collaborative nature of our exclusive process, despite being miles apart and separated by numerous time zones. Our color experts held lively debates, used new digital collaboration tools, curated a cross-cultural trends direction and ultimately, selected the 2022 Color of the Year.
