Automotive Coatings Market size will cross USD 28 billion by 2022; as per the latest report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Asia Pacific automotive industry growth is the major driving factor for the rise in automotive coatings market. Recent infrastructural developments including road connectivity, coupled with growing PPP of emerging countries of East and South East Asia will have a positive impact on the market in the next few years. China controls over a quarter of the global automotive market, both in terms of demand as well as supply.
Vehicle production in the country recorded a volume of over 23.7 million units in 2014, while around 23.5 million vehicles were sold in the same year. Japan and India followed with sales of over 5.5 million and 3 million vehicles respectively in 2014. Attractive and protective coatings are gaining popularity for protecting the vehicles from corrosion or decolorization due to harmful ultraviolet rays, atmospheric acidity, highly inconsistent climate, extreme temperature variation, etc. while enhancing the aesthetic features.
Advancements in powder coating technology owing to the high volatile organic compound (VOC) content in solventborne coatings will also have a positive influence on the global automotive coatings market. Superior features of powder coatings include easy customization, high efficiency, durability, easy application, and minimum wastage. Increasing application of this technology in primer and basecoat for external body, engine and accessories, interior parts such as steering wheels, dashboard, ashtray, battery tray, luggage racks, etc. will catalyze the global automotive coatings market in the next eight years.
EPA and REACH regulations pertaining to the VOC amount in solventborne coatings will hamper the automotive coatings market growth in North America and Europe. Powder, UV-cured, and waterborne coatings may, however, substitute solventborne coatings in these regions in the upcoming years. Global automotive coatings market will also be restrained due to fluctuating prices of the raw materials for the coatings production which includes titanium oxide, binders, pigments, additives, and resins.
