PPG (US) adopted the strategies of expansion and mergers & acquisitions to retain its position in the automotive specialty coatings market. For instance, in February 2016, PPG invested USD 7.8 million in its global paints & coatings R&D hub in Allison Park, Pennsylvania (US). This R&D hub enabled the company to manufacture and test sealants, adhesives, and pretreatment solutions by simulating the environments, wherein its customers use the automotive and industrial paints & coatings manufactured by the company. Further, in October 2017, PPG acquired The Crown Group to enhance the services offered by it to its OEM customers.

On the other hand, BASF adopted expansion, mergers & acquisitions, and partnership strategies to sustain its market position. In December 2017, BASF inaugurated a new automotive coatings plant at its Bangpoo manufacturing site in Samutprakarn province (Thailand). The new plant is the first automotive coatings manufacturing facility of BASF in ASEAN and produces solvent-borne and waterborne automotive coatings to meet the growing demand for these coatings in the region. In December 2016, BASF completed its acquisition of Albemarle’s global surface treatment business, namely, Chemetall. This acquisition enabled BASF to expand its coatings portfolio to become a complete provider of coating solutions. BASF entered into a partnership with Sirrus, which is a developer of the next-generation crosslinking platforms for coatings and adhesives. This partnership enabled BASF to develop a new class of high-performance automotive coatings based on the proprietary methylene malonate technology of Sirrus.
