Rising Demand for Light Vehicles is a Driving Factor for OEM Coatings
The global automotive coatings market is primarily divided into two sub-markets - OEM coatings and refinish coatings. The OEM coatings segment dominated the global automotive market, with a share of more than 50% in 2017. The OEM market is driven by rising demand for light vehicles, primarily passenger cars. Increasing demand for passenger cars, primarily in Asia-pacific, is one of the major factor boosting the demand for OEM coatings. The increasing demand for bus coatings in various developed nations is another factor propelling the demand for OEM coatings.
Increasing Automotive Production in Asia-Pacific
In the automotive sector, coatings are used in interior as well as exterior parts of the vehicle, and they impart protection and appeal to vehicles. In Asia-Pacific, China is the largest producer of automobiles with more than 28 million vehicles (passenger and commercial vehicles combined) produced in 2016. Used car sales have also grown significantly in China. In 2016, the exponential growth of 14.5% in automotive production, over 2015, is one of the major driving factors augmenting the automotive coatings market. Countries, such as Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia, have seen a slower growth rate in automotive production in 2016.
Demand from Asia-Pacific to Expand at a Fast Rate
Increasing production in China, India, and other ASEAN countries, is likely to propel the demand for automotive coatings at a high rate. North America is likely to dominate the refinish coatings market, followed by Europe. Asia-Pacific is expected to expand at a healthy rate in the automotive refinish coatings market.
