In 2018, the global automotive OEM coatings market was valued at $10,997.4 million, and it is expected to reach $13,661.4 million by 2024, witnessing a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period (2019–2024). On the basis of technology, solvent-borne coatings held the largest volume share, and the market category is also expected to demonstrate a promising growth during the forecast period.
In terms of volume, water-borne coatings for automobiles are likely to demonstrate the fastest market growth during the study period. This can be attributed to the low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in these coatings owing to its water-based nature.
Development of Powder Coatings
Powder coatings meet several environmental standards as well as regulations levied by governments across the globe, owing to which its preference is increasing. In addition, the application of powder coatings on vehicles provides uniform thickness along with no paint sludge during application. With the recent development of these coatings, vehicle manufacturers are rapidly shifting from liquid coatings to powder coatings. For instance, plants owned by Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW) in Europe are shifting towards powder coatings for the clearcoat process.
Growth Potential of Automotive Industry in Developing Nations
Developing nations in the Southeast Asian region such as India, Thailand, and Indonesia have witnessed a rapid pace in the technological development in the automobile sector. One of the effects have been compounding automobile production in these countries. The rapid surge in demand for two-wheeler and four-wheeler vehicles is attributable to the increase in consumer spending and associated improvement in road connectivity and infrastructure. With such associated factors, the automotive industry holds immense potential of growth in these countries, owing to which the market demand for automotive OEM coatings is expected to increase in the coming years.
Moreover, strategic alliances between automobile manufacturers are expected to further propel the market growth in the coming times. For instance, in April 2017, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Volkswagen AG and Tata Motors Limited for development of automotive vehicles and components to serve the Indian market along with other countries.
