“The increasing production of passenger cars, stringent VOC emission regulations, and changing customer preferences for paint textures will drive the global automotive paints market “

The automotive paints market is estimated to be USD 8.74 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 10.65 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 2.88% from 2018 to 2025. The demand for automotive paints is driven by the increasing demand for vehicles; whereas, technologies and R&D investments are influenced by government regulations. However, advancements in automotive safety technologies have resulted in the reduced number of accidents, which, in turn, is a restraint for the automotive refinish paints market.

“Waterborne technology is estimated to have the largest share in automotive paints market, by technology”

The major advantage of waterborne paint is its low toxicity and flammability due to lower VOC levels. Paints based on this technology have excellent adhesion and greater heat resistance compared to solvent-based paints. Owing to stringent emission regulations such as Regulation, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances (REACH), countries in Europe are reducing the use of solvent-borne paints and have shifted towards eco-friendly waterborne paints. North America and Europe are estimated to showcase the largest usage rate for waterborne paints and are projected to grow at a steady pace over the forecast period. Developing markets such as India and China are also switching to water-based paints, thus increasing the demand for waterborne paints over the forecast period.

“Asia Oceania to dominate the automotive paints market”

The automotive industry in the Asia Oceania region has been dynamic over the past few years and has seen an increase in the annual production of passenger and commercial vehicles. As a result,in the recent years, Asia Oceania has emerged as a hub for automobile production. As compared to the region’s substantial population, the vehicle ownership is low, making Asia Oceania an attractive market for global manufacturers. With the increasing vehicle production, the demand for paint will also increase, making increasing vehicle production the single biggest driver of the Asia Oceania automotive paints market. Currently, due to the lack of strict VOC regulations, the usage of waterborne paints is lower than that in the western countries. This situation, however, is expected to change in the future and the demand for waterborne coating is projected to increase. These factors combined, Asia Oceania is projected to be the largest automotive paint market over the forecast period.
