Automotive refinish coatings market to hit $113bn

WASHINGTON, October 8, 2015

The global market for automotive refinish coatings would be worth $11.3 billion in six years growing at a CAGR (compounded annual growth rate) of 6.3 per cent during 2015-2021, a report said.

Solvent-borne refinish coating technology segment currently accounts for about half of the revenue; however, by 2020, water-borne refinish coating revenues would match up to solvent-borne segment, added the report titled "World Automotive Refinish Coatings Market - Opportunities and Forecast, 2014-2020" by Allied Market Research, a US-based market intelligence company.

Continuous adoption of newer technologies, rising disposable income and growing consolidation of used vehicle market would be the prime factors for automotive refinish Coatings market growth. Moreover, increasing road accidents, vehicle customization (especially in China, India and Brazil) and growing trend of recreational vehicles are supplementing the overall market growth.

However, environmental hazards related to toxic waste produced from solvent-borne refinish coatings and price volatility of raw materials would hinder the growth of the global automotive refinish coatings market, the report said.

Within different product categories, basecoat refinish coating segment would remain the largest market with about 33 per cent revenue in 2014. Polyurethane would be the largest resin segment, both in terms of volume and revenue, in 2014.

The key reason driving the growth of polyurethane segment is its characteristic as a foam that assists manufacturers to make automotive seating, which can be assembled, disassembled and recycled.

Key findings of the study:

•    The Asia Pacific and North American regions collectively held about 62 per cent of the overall automotive refinish Coatings market revenue in 2014

•    The water-borne coating segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate

•    In 2014, base coat and clearcoat collectively accounted for more than half of the overall refinish Coatings market revenue.

Asia Pacific currently leads the global automotive refinish coatings market. The key reasons driving the growth of the Asia-Pacific market are increasing car parc, rising purchasing power and rise in number of road accidents. Asia-Pacific would continue to lead the market during the forecast period due to rising demand of vehicle customization. LAMEA (Latin America, Middle East and Africa) would be the fastest growing geographical region in the overall market.

The major players in the market are adopting acquisition as their key strategies. The report provides a comprehensive analysis of the key companies operating in the market such as Axalta Coating Systems, BASF, Kansai Paint, Akzo Nobel, PPG Industries, Nippon Paints, and Matrix System Automotive Finishes, according to the report. – TradeArabia News Service
