Passenger cars are the largest segment to drive the global automotive coatings market. Among technology type eco-friendly means of producing coatings is a new trend due to the stringent regulations being made by organizations. Hence waterborne, ultraviolet cure and powder coatings are in large use over solvent borne which is being banned in many places.
Market Dynamics of the Global Automotive Coating Market:
Increasing demand from developing countries in Asia Pacific and Europe due to their increasing research in the innovation of coatings and new application areas.
Innovative product development and increased growth in the automotive sector boosts the growth of this market.
Advancement in new technological coatings decreases the environmental footprint and energy usage.
Ecofriendly automotive coating production is a new trend which serves as a major driver for the industry.
Adverse economic condition in automotive industry affects the market; it decreases the overall sales of coatings in the market.
Volatility in the raw materials.
Stringent environmental regulations from environmental protection agency (EPA) and registration, authorization, evaluation and restriction of chemicals (REACH) regarding the use of solvent-borne technologies which contain a high amount of volatile organic compounds (VOC).
Europe is the second largest vehicle producer and hence consumer of automotive coatings in the world. North America is the third largest consumer of Automotive Coatings in the world. It is estimated that 19.23 million vehicles were produced in North America in 2014 and it would bypass Europe to become the second largest producer of vehicles by 2018. Europe is anticipated to have a steady growth rate in the period 2014-2020 growing at a CAGR of 4.2% in the next six years and it was estimated that 19.17 million units of vehicles was produced in the year 2014.
