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.

Automotive Paint Market Trends

Surging Automotive Sector: Global sales of automotive paint are increasing owing to rising production of vehicles, coupled with robust growth of the automotive sector in countries such as Brazil, China, Mexico, India, and South Korea. In addition, growing trends of automotive restorations and refurbishing are likely to reflect favourably on the sales prospects of automotive paints in the aftermarket vertical. At the same time, rapid adoption of advanced powder coating and thermal spray technologies is likely to boost the growth of the global automotive paint market.

Reduction of Emission-producing Products: Companies that manufacture automotive paints are focusing on the development of products that are eco-friendly. This is primarily due to increasing concerns over emission of toxic gasses in the environment. The automotive sector is under pressure to reduce the effects of their products that contribute to environmental degradation. Moreover, government organisations and environmental bodies are encouraging the utilization of technologies that help in lowering emission levels. Hence, companies are shifting towards painting and coating products that are non-toxic.
