Global Painting Software Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Paint software is a type of computer software used for creating and editing digital images. Paint software typically allows users to manipulate photos by adjusting colors, brightness, contrast and other image properties. Some paint software also includes basic drawing tools for creating simple graphics.


Mac is a brand of computer designed, developed and marketed by Apple Inc. for its users. It consists of two parts; the Mac OS which is an operating system (OS) and various applications including Paint, Camera etc. The first version of Mac was introduced in January 1984 with the name Macintosh 128K which had 8 MB RAM, double disk drive and single processor as compared to present day Mac Mini with its 1 GHz processor & 4 GB RAM memory.


Windows is a software that controls the paint program and provides various tools for editing, designing, printing, and animation. The Paint program in Windows is used to create images with the help of brushes, patterns or colors. It also allows the user to save these paintings for future use.

The first version of Windows was introduced by Microsoft Corporation in 1985 as a graphical interface for MS-DOS based personal computers including IBM PC compatible personal computers and Apple Inc.

Application Insights:

3D painting application segment to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. The demand for 3D painting software is witnessing a rise due to its capability of creating realistic images and sculptures. Increasing use of 3D art in advertising, promotion, and marketing is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

2D painting application segment accounted for more than half share in 2017 owing to increasing preference towards traditional media such as oil paints among young artists across globe. 2d paintings require less work-intensive compared with their counterparts which makes it popular among amateurs and hobbyists around the world who have interest in creative arts but lack professional skills or knowledge.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period. This can be attributed to presence of a large number of prominent players operating in this region, including Autodesk, Inc.; Adobe Systems Incorporated; and Corel Corporation. These companies are consistently working toward improving their products and services by introducing new features and tools that would meet customer needs better than before.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to emerge as one of the fastest-growing regions during the same period owing to increasing adoption of digital technologies among users from different walks of life such as students, corporate people etc., especially from developing countries such as China and India.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for customized and personalized paintings
  • Rising disposable income of the population
  • Proliferation of online art galleries and platforms
  • Growing popularity of painting as a hobby or form of self-expression
  • Technological advancements in painting software
