Automotive OEM Coatings Market Drivers

UV-Cured coatings in the automotive industry

It is a process to cure coatings by a chemical process initiated and sustained by UV energy. In less than a minute the coating is converted from a liquid to a solid. There are fundamental differences in some of the raw materials and the functionality of the resins in the coating, but these are transparent to the coating user. The UV-Cured coatings in the automotive industry are poised for rapid growth owing to its properties like environment friendly, reduces set-up labor cost, and highly improved physical properties. LED curing allows the use of 100% solids formulations and provides fast curing with no thermal heating/ovens, increased production speeds, and a reduced footprint. They consume 50-75% lower energy and provide for significantly reduced heat transfer to the substrate, allowing UV curing on heat-sensitive materials. For instance, Electrolube launched next-generation UV Cure Coatings to meet the various requirements of the automotive industry which is solvent-free, Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)-free and provides unsurpassed performance in harsh environments, including resistance to cracking during thermal shock cycling. On the other hand, Sun Chemical launched UV coating manufactured with 25% bio-renewable carbon content and with 12% post-consumer recycled materials. The rapid growing demands of UV_Cured coatings are likely to project a positive impact on the Automotive OEM Coatings.

Government initiatives in Automotive industries after the Covid-19 pandemic

Global trade relations, stronger emission regulations, and the coronavirus outbreak could all have a serious impact on the automotive OEM coatings market. Although the automotive industry continues to find ways to restart around the world, government intervention is playing a driving role in how manufacturers and brands recover. Some of the measures taken by the government in different regions to overcome the pandemic loss, for instance, France committed to making clean vehicles, i.e., to increase the output of electric and hybrid cars to more than one million per year over the next five years and for the US$ 9.7 Billion rescue plan has been announced to the car industry. The German government has not implemented any tax support measures dedicated to the auto industry. Whereas, In India, the automotive industry is currently engaged in dialogue with the government on a policy to temporarily reduce standard goods and service tax rate by 10% across all vehicle categories and auto components. Despite slowdowns in 2020, such initiatives for the automotive industry will enhance the demands of the Automotive OEM Coatings market.

Automotive OEM Coatings Market Challenges

Limitations of Powder coatings with glass

Powder coatings are mostly used for metal materials, such as steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and brass, however they are also capable to be applied to a variety of non-metals, including glass or fiberboard. The range of materials that are suitable for powder coating is limited by the fact that powder coatings must be heat cured. Therefore, any materials, especially non-metals, undergoing the powder coating process need to be able to withstand the curing temperatures of the oven without melting, burning, or deforming. Which leads to damages to the product sometimes. And the limitation has the competence to hinder the market of Automotive OEM Coatings.

Coatings can cause volatile-related issues on the vehicle surface

Volatile-related problems like gassing, defects that resemble solvent popping but are caused by volatiles that originate from the substrate and air entrapment, air bubbles trapped in the paint during manufacture or application can result in bubbles, pinholes, and crater-like defects in the cured film. These defects hurt appearance and may compromise the protective ability of the coating. When they appear, they must be sanded and repaired, which can lead to additional defects. Such setbacks may hinder the growth rate of the Automotive OEM Coatings Market..
