Polyurethane resin is projected to have the highest demand in automotive paints market

Polyurethane-based coatings are popular in automotive OEM and refinish painting because they offer a unique combination of properties, this includes good elastic property at very low temperatures, solvent and water resistance, abrasion resistance, machine washability and dry cleanability. In addition to these benefits, polyurethane-based coatings do not increase paint thickness or change styling factors, such as drape. Also, with an increase in need of automotive paints by OEMs, the paint manufacturers have started investing in expanding their plant capacity for polyurethane resins. For instance,  BASF SE has announced a single-digit million-euro investment in the capacity expansion of water-based polyurethane dispersions (PUDs) at its Castellbisbal site in Spain to increase the production capacity. Hence, polyurethane-based paints have the largest market in automotive paints market, by resin type.

For example, in 2021, the US produced luxury SUVs that comprised around 75% of its total luxury car production. Conversely, developing countries such as China, Brazil, and India have exhibited remarkable growth in SUV demand over the past few years. China and India’s SUV markets have grown by 36% and 10%, respectively, between 2018 and 2021. This growth in sales for SUVs is driving the market for passenger cars in the automotive paints market.

The global demand for passenger cars is expected to grow further due to the increased fuel efficiency of passenger cars, a rise in per capita income, increased employment opportunities, and efficient personal mobility solutions. The automotive industry is growing rapidly in countries such as China and India. Automotive manufacturers are increasingly investing in these countries due to the availability of affordable labor, robust infrastructure for production, and attractive government policies for the automotive industry.

In March 2022, Hyundai (South Korea) established its first production plant in the ASEAN region, marking a significant milestone in its expansion strategy. Situated in Cikarang, Indonesia, the facility represents a substantial investment of USD 1.55 billion and boasts an annual production capacity of 250,000 vehicles. This state-of-the-art plant will manufacture a range of new models, including the Creta, Santa Fe, Tucson, Stargazer, and IONIQ 5, all equipped with cutting-edge connectivity features to enhance the driving experience for customers across the region. Hence this factors has made passenger car the second fastest growing segment in automotive paints.
