Automotive Coatings Market

PPG Industries, Inc (US) and Axalta Coating Systems (US) are Leading Players in the Automotive Coatings Market

The global automotive coatings market size is projected to grow from USD 15.0 billion in 2022 to USD 18.6 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 4.3%. The demand for automotive coatings is primarily influenced by the demand trends in the automotive industry, environmental regulations, health & safety norms, buyer preferences, lifestyle, and the growing economy. The companies have adopted various strategies, such as investment & expansion, merger & acquisition, new product launches, and joint ventures to increase their global presence and maintain sustained growth in the automotive coatings market.

The automotive coatings industry has evolved from solvent-borne coatings to water-borne coatings and powder-based coatings through intense Research & Development (R&D). The aim of providing these advanced coatings to the automotive industry was to minimize the hazard caused by solvent-borne coatings as they have a high content of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and HAPs (hazardous air pollutants). On the other hand, water-borne and powder-based coating is getting popular owing to their environmentally friendly tag with zero or low-VOC content. North American and European countries have issued regulations regarding the content of VOCs in coatings, due to which the demand for water-borne and powder-based coatings increased. Developing countries, such as China, India, Brazil, and Russia have also started applying water-borne and powder-based coatings in the conventional paint process. Hence, considering the increasing vehicle demand and upcoming environmental regulations in the next five years, the demand for eco-friendly coatings is likely to grow at a substantial rate.
