The global automotive paint market size is projected to witness an above-average growth over the next couple of years. Demand for automotive paints is growing due to constant improvements in their properties and functionalities. Today, automotive paints are not only used for the beautification of the vehicles but also to enhance surface durability.

Automotive paints increase the endurance of metal and aluminium parts of a vehicle, enabling them to withstand extreme environmental conditions such as heat, acid, UV radiation, and dust particles. Moreover, automakers are channelizing efforts to improve overall car coat and painting techniques.

Several layers of paint and coating are applied on modern vehicles, which can reach thickness of nearly 100 µm (0.1mm). In order to ensure proper application of automotive paint, most manufacturers follow a highly systematic and precautious preparation procedure. Automotive paints usually comprise a combination of coating layers, which include primer paint, basecoat, and clearcoat.
