The global automotive paint market is expected to sour at 5.7% CAGR during the assessment period (2017-2022). The arrival of enhanced paints and coating varieties is supporting the global sales of automotive paint. Apart for improving the external appearance of a vehicle, automotive paints also help in the increasing the durability of the materials they are applied on. Clearcoat, basecoat and primer paint are some of the common coating layers. Carmakers are utilizing automotive paint to increase the resistance of aluminium and metal component of the vehicle. Automotive paint offer resistance against UV radiation, heat, dust particles and acid rain. In addition, manufacturers are actively focusing of developing more advanced and efficient painting and coating technology. Factors as such are expected to drive the growth of the global market for automotive paint in the forthcoming years.
Greater expansion of the global auto industry in countries such as China, Brazil and India coupled with growing production of cars is an additional factor that remains important in shaping the market dynamics going forward. Also, car manufacturers are increasingly adopting leading coating technologies such as thermal spray and powder coating owing to their high functionality and efficiency. In recent years, the focus has shifted towards introduction of greener paint and coating products as many of the international environmental organisations have been critical of automotive coatings and paints that emit harmful gas. Moreover, international bodies are promoting the use of product and setting guidelines on use of chemical coatings and paints in auto industry. Therefore, companies that manufacture automotive paints are trying to develop and formulate products that are non-toxic and environmentally viable.
