Solvent-Borne Coatings to Gain at Expense of Water-Borne Coatings

The solvent-borne coatings segment has a revenue share exceeding 2/5th of the material type segment in the automotive refinish coating market at the end of 2017 and are on track to gain massive market share. This is primarily because of the decreasing preference for water-borne coatings in the automotive refinish coating market.

The solvent-borne coatings segment is poised to push past a value of US$ 5 billion at the end of the five-year forecast and North America is the region to look out for. Nonetheless, it would be unwise to overlook the water-borne segment as it still accounts for a substantial, albeit declining share in the automotive refinish coating market. The water-borne coatings segment has strong scope in the APEJ region and key stakeholders in the automotive refinish coating market are advised to take this into account while devising their strategies.
