The demand for automotive paints and coatings is primarily driven by the increasing demand for automotive, whereas research and development investments are influenced by government regulations. The advancements in market led by stringent fuel emission regulations regarding manufacturing processes, paint products and the industry’s carbon footprint. For instance, surface pre-treatment of metal, which requires application of paint and coating on the surface to increase the adhesion of paint & coating along with corrosion resistance. Traditionally chromate and phosphate-based conversion coatings were used for pre-treatment activities. These types of coatings generally emit very high VOC emissions. However due to introduction of new non-VOC regulations, these coating chemicals are being replaced with non-VOC surface coatings.
 

Growing automobile production in Asia-Pacific and Latin America on account of rising population and income level is poised to spur automobile sector which will have a positive impact on the automotive paints & coatings market. Shifting customer demand towards improved aesthetics appearance and protection from rough environmental conditions like acid rain, UV radiation, foreign particles and extreme temperature will aid in revenue generation. The closure of several production sites across the world impelled by the coronavirus pandemic will negatively influence paints & coatings demand across various applications for the short-term. Despite a recent drop in the demand from the automobile sector owing to weakened economic conditions, automotive paints & coatings industry is likely to offer ample opportunities in the long run.

Passenger vehicle to augment the demand for automotive paints & coatings

 

The passenger cars segment in the automotive paints & coatings market will witness a growth rate of 5% till 2026 propelled by increasing vehicle adoption across the globe. Emerging vehicle financing market has encouraged the passenger vehicles industry to provide loans on the vehicle to their customers. Owning a passenger vehicle is usually observed as a status symbol in many developing countries, but nowadays they are being bought by middle class families. As income level rises in developing countries the demand for passenger vehicle will also continue to rise thereby driving the market revenue during the forecast period.

 

High demand for low VOC coatings to support electrocoat segment growth

Electrocoat is projected to reach USD 8 billion in 2026 due to its use in passenger cars, commercial vehicles and automotive parts. Electrocoat contains polymeric materials such as acrylic and epoxy that can are used for protective and decorative purposes. The resin component present in the formulation determines the end-use performance and processing of electrocoat. Electrocoats offer various benefits including corrosion resistance and lower curing temperature that will further enhance the segment expansion.

Waterborne technology in the automotive paints & coatings market valued at USD 6.5 billion in 2019 owing to its low VOCs emission and superior performance. Waterborne paints are composed of pigments and synthetic resins that are kept dispersed in water by surfactants. Waterborne technology has various advantage like less odor in work environment and improved air quality without giving up on performance and color-matching capability. As developed economies in North America and Europe have already implemented VOC emission standards, OEMs and automotive paint suppliers are increasingly adopting waterborne technology.
 

Metallic paints to bank upon multiple industry use

Metallic paints segment is predicted to attain a CAGR of 5.5% CAGR through 2026. Metallic paints contain small quantity of powdered metal added to it. The type and size of metal added differs according to the manufacturer choices but is usually about 1 part in 50 of aluminum powder. The metal particles present in the paint reflect more incident light than the basic paint colors giving it a shiny look. It also hides minor damage from a distance in a much more effective way.
 

OEMs automotive paints & coatings will continue to dominate the market growth

OEMs segment dominated more than 70% of the automotive paints & coatings market share in 2019 impelled by growing automobile sales due to increasing consumer spending on aesthetic appearance, comfort and functionality. Availability of corrosion resistant and long-lasting paints will further support the industry expansion.
 

Polyurethane to foster the demand for automotive paints & coatings
