Market Overview:

The global automotive paints market is projected to succeed in a valuation of US$ 11,966.1 Mn by 2026, registering a CAGR of 4.2% over the forecast period. The different products that fall into automotive paints are electro coats, powder coats, basecoat and clearcoat. Availability of varied choices of color is growing the automotive paints market. Automotive paint is formed from pigments, binders and thinners. These days, automotive paints are witnessing demand for technological advance paints rather than traditional colours. Furthermore, automotive paints manufacturers are more focusing towards minimum wastage spray technology, low volatile compound paints, which is foreseen to support the global automotive paints market.

The global automotive paints market is predicted to witness a surge in demand over the forecast period due to factors like strict government policies and the rising awareness towards the environment. The business is evolving in terms of various options, durability, and reliability. Automotive paints act as a protective coat and supply an ambient appearance, which is predicted to accelerate the market growth over the subsequent six years. Various regulations regarding non-VOC paints have triggered the automotive paints industry demand resulting in the introduction of waterborne coats, which are expected to dominate the solvent-borne coatings. Today, automotive colours are not only used for beautification of the vehicles but also to reinforce surface durability. At an equivalent time, rapid adoption of advanced powder coating and thermal spray technologies is probably going to spice up the expansion of the worldwide automotive paints market. 

Recent Developments:

· McLaren Racing's 2020 Formula 1 car raced into view today before the new season, with AkzoNobel again supplying hi-tech coatings technology for the fashionable MCL35. 

· Improve Lidar Detection with Near-Infrared Reflective Dark Automotive Paint Colors. BASF is leveraging Lidar-detectable coatings made with functional pigments and technologies to reduce NIR absorption and thereby better Lidar mapping performance.

· Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, has let go the Automotive Edition of ColorForward® 2018. The third edition of the color/trend analysis tool designed by this company for automotive designers and marketers includes a replacement prototype format: carpet and textured plaques. 

Drivers and Restraints of Automotive Paints Market:


Factors like an increase in automobile production and upsurge in demand for eco-friendly automotive paints are the key factors driving the expansion of the global automotive paints market. On the contrary, increasingly focused on product cost-effective automotive paints is anticipated to supply remunerative growth opportunities for the player operating within the global automotive paints market. Hiking demand for automobiles and increasing disposable incomes are few of the main elements that are driving the worldwide automotive paint market.

Moreover, durable automotive paints are driving the automotive market as they're preferred by the user while purchasing a vehicle. Furthermore, the rising bourgeoisie population in developing countries and the favorable economic trend is anticipated to spice up the market. Also, the increasing adoption of improved new technologies is predicted to drive the market over the forecast period.


Rise in prices of raw materials to manufacture automotive paints hinders the expansion of the market. Moreover, variable staple prices and environmental regulations are expected to dampen the global automotive paints market. Environmental regulations in developed regions like North America and Europe discourage the assembly of high volatile compound paints, affecting the overall automotive paints market. Furthermore, moderate growth in machinery and appliances for automotive paints manufacturing is predicted to scale back the expansion of demand.
