Automotive Coatings Market to Witness the Highest Growth
Posted by Preet on September 27th, 2019
The automotive coatings market continues to witness significant transformation ranging from new material developments in the vehicle production to higher popularity of traditional colors compared to “more colorful” alternatives. The automotive coatings market is expected to witness an increase in volume sales of over 3,500 tons in 2018 over 2017, according to a recent Fact.MR study. Refinish formulations continue to gain center stage in the automotive coatings market, while water-borne coatings are gaining increased focus for basecoats.

Water borne automotive coatings have gained utter prominence over the years of evolution, primarily driven by environmental and health concerns of the solvent-borne automotive coatings. The study estimates nearly 6 in 10 tons of automotive coating sold worldwide in 2018 to be water-borne. However, demand for waterborne coatings as primer surface layer is likely to witness decline in tandem with increasing palpability of UV cure automotive coatings.
UV cure variants, albeit accounting for minor share of the market currently, have emerged as fast-selling automotive coatings and the status quo is likely to prevail in 2018 and beyond. Demand for solvent borne coatings is expected to remain higher than solvent-borne coatings in 2018, despite concerns regarding their environmental and health impacts. Preference for solvent borne automotive coatings is primarily undergird by their relative superiority in retention of pigments liquid and binding agents.

Fact.MR study opines that acrylics will remain the top-selling resin in the automotive coatings market, as these resins witness predominant use in passenger cars, trailed by fluoropolymers. However, recent shift in manufacturer preferences have led the demand for amines and poly alkyds, and it is highly likely that these resins will record relatively faster volume sales in 2018 and beyond.
Shares of the automotive coatings market are expected to remain clustered at the top and splintered at the bottom. Top 5 players will collectively account for nearly 40% share of the automotive coatings market. Supremacy of these players will be upheld by their sound operations and robust sales infrastructure worldwide. Small and mid-sized automotive coatings manufacturers are focused toward collaborations with established players as a key expansion strategy to strengthen their distribution and manufacturing capabilities.
Leading automotive coatings manufacturing companies emphasize providing automotive OEMs and key Tier 1 customers with value-added, best-in-class service products. These products are targeted at cutting down cost for customers while increasing their shareholder value in the automotive coatings market. Provision of cost-effective structure management to customers for maintaining safety standards and enabling process optimization, is a key focus area of leading automotive coatings market players.
