Automotive Refinish Coatings Market to Reach $11,099.7 Million by 2023

Published Date:   April 2018

Global automotive refinish coatings market is projected to attain a size of $11,099.7 million by 2023, according to P&S Intelligence.

The increase in vehicle collisions and the increasing average age of vehicles are some of the major factors driving the growth of the market. With advancements in technology over time, the average age of vehicles has increased. For instance, in the U.K., the average age of a vehicle-on-road increased from 6.8 years in 2003 to 7.8 years in 2015. With the increase in average age, vehicles become more prone to corrosion and environmental damage; thereby generating the demand for refinish coatings.

Among all technologies used in the automotive refinish coatings market, the waterborne-based technology is expected to attain the highest CAGR during the forecast period. As solvent-borne based products produce high levels of VOC, OEMs have started to switch to water-borne based products, thus leading to increased demand of the technology in the market.

Of all auto types, cars are estimated to hold the largest share in the automotive refinish coatings market, with an estimated revenue contribution of more than 70.0% in 2017. This is mainly due to the growth in sales of used cars, coupled with growth in car insurance. However, the fastest growing category during the forecast period is expected to be two-wheelers, registering a CAGR of 5.1% between 2017 to 2023.

Based on vehicle age, the automotive refinish coatings market is segmented into vehicles aged less than 5 years, between 5-10 years, and more than 10 years. Vehicles aged more than 10 years have been leading the market in terms of volume sales, with an estimated contribution of more than 35% in 2017. This is mainly due to the fact that older vehicles are more susceptible to collisions and corrosion as compared to new vehicles.

Asia-Pacific stands as the largest market

Globally, Asia-Pacific has been the largest automotive refinish coatings market, with an estimated contribution of more than 30.0% in 2017. This can be attributed to the increase in the number of collisions in developing countries due to increased congestion and population, growing GDP of the region, and increase in the demand of vehicles in countries such as China, India, and Vietnam, among others. Moreover, the increasing commercial fleet due to logistics demand, and the rise in disposable income driving the rental cab service market, are few other factors driving the demand for the automotive refinish coatings in Asia-Pacific.
