Automotive Refinish Coatings Market Value and Growth Analysis (2022 - 2027)

The total automotive refinish coatings market was $ 7.45 billion in 2021 and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% to reach $ 10 billion over the foreseen period from 2021 to 2026. Automotive refinish coatings in favor of more lucrative options. The loss of market share is more related to the clear coatings segment in the automotive refinish coatings market. The colorless varnishes segment in North America is predicted to be worth more than $ 625 million by the end of 2026.

Europe is far behind in the finish coatings segment of the automotive refinish coatings market. The escalating need for timely maintenance and repair of motor vehicles to improve the appearance and durability of vehicles by protecting them from external factors such as temperature and UV radiation is an innate requirement. To achieve this goal, auto refinish coatings are invented and are frequently employed by end-users in the auto aftermarket. A growing call for aesthetic finishes for vehicles around the world has led to major innovations in the operation of automotive refinish coatings. There are many developments in this context, including the invention of high-tech coating materials that are environmentally friendly and at the same time low insolvent.

Automotive Refinish Coatings Market Trends:

The combined primers and basecoats segment has the majority share of the automotive refinish coatings market by coating structure segment. An absolute dollar opportunity of approximately US $ 1.2 billion can be seized in the primer segment of the auto refinish coatings market from 2017 to 2022. After North America, Europe is the second biggest regional contributor in the primer industry coating for car repainting. However, the APEJ is predicted to grow with the highest CAGR during the foreseen period.

Recent Developments in the Automotive Refinish Coatings Market:

  • For the auto body shops of the future: BASF launches a new line of water-based undercoats. As a pioneer in aqueous coating solutions for the automotive industry, BASF's Coatings division now introduces its new, most advanced line of finishing products.

Automotive Refinish Coatings Market Drivers:

The escalating use of topcoats for automotive service, aftermarket repair and painting due to visual appearance, surface protection and corrosion resistance, extreme weather conditions, temperature, heat and water should promote expansion of the industry. In addition, the growing need for custom designs and paints on vehicles is likely to support expansion. The growing awareness of protecting vehicle paints by repairing scratches and damage to vehicle surfaces has fueled market expansion in the United States. foreseen period. Escalated consumption of water-based, high solids UV-cured coatings due to zero VOC emissions is predicted to drive expansion of the automotive refinish coatings market over the foreseen period. With expansion in gross domestic product (GDP) and rising revenues, car sales are on the rise, driving up the consumption of refinish coatings in emerging economies such as India and China. Escalating people's worldwide disposable income is predicted to drive expansion in passenger cars, which in turn is predicted to drive expansion in auto repair OEMs and the aftermarket. Low-cost, high-performance overcoats and people's changing mindset to keep their vehicles in good condition, in terms of appearance and performance, are leading to the expansion of the overcoat industry. Additionally, falling fuel prices and rising vehicle registrations and miles driven are predicted to drive expansion in the automotive refinish coatings market. Escalating disposable income has made it possible for many people to buy luxury cars and maintain their appearance and performance on the road, a determining factor in the call for auto refinish coatings.

Automotive Refinish Coatings Market Restraints:

The volatility of raw material prices, as well as escalated spending on road infrastructure, will hamper the expansion of the industry.

Opportunities in the Automotive Refinish Coatings Market:

Advances in technology, along with continued product development to improve topcoat performance, will drive market expansion for years to come. Additionally, the government's efforts to reduce VOC emissions by deploying environmentally friendly technology will create new market opportunities during the foreseen period. Escalated investment in R&D and the introduction of new technologies have improved the quality of products that provide superior protection to automobiles. Escalating production of light commercial vehicles and passenger cars is predicted to drive call for refinish coatings in the coming years, thus supporting market expansion. The establishment of manufacturing facilities in economic expansion regions, the increase in traffic accidents and vehicle customization are factors that are predicted to drive the expansion of the Coatings market.

Challenges in the Automotive Refinish Coatings Market:

The call for solvent-based coatings is gradually decreasing because they contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Solvent-based coatings consist of liquefying agents intended to evaporate by chemical reaction with oxygen.
