Electrocoating is a process used for depositing an organic paint film by means of an electrical charge. In this process, the part is immersed in an electrified tank, and the reaction between the electricity and the solution causes the paint to deposit on the substrate. Although this process is used in different applications, it is mostly known for its application in the automotive industry as a primer coat for automotive bodies. It provides a more uniform texture to the car body than conventional priming systems do and has become the most widely used priming process in the automotive industry.
The major drivers for the electrocoating market include superior performance and better properties of electrocoating in the market, green environmental regulations concerning the product, the least expensive coating, growth in the end-use industries such as appliances, automotive, construction, and furniture, and technological advancements. Only the high capital cost of equipment can restrain the market from growing. Some of the opportunities for manufacturers include growing application in the automotive industry in emerging economies such as China and India and booming agricultural equipment, shipbuilding, and pipeline industries. The major challenges faced by the manufacturers is that different colors require different processing tanks, and changing the tanks is time-consuming coupled with bottlenecks in supply chain due to Covid-19. However, the demand for electrocoating would show recovery with the recovery in demand from end-use industries. The global electrocoating market size is projected to grow from USD 3.9 billion in 2021 to USD 5.0 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period.
