The global automotive refinish coatings market reached a value of US$ 9.4 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 4% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, the analyst is continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Automotive refinish coatings refer to polyurethane, acrylics or alkyd-based coatings used by vehicle body shops and repair centers. These coatings are applied to new/old passenger and commercial vehicles to cover up the damages on the body caused by extreme temperatures, accidents and impact from stones. Some of the commonly used refinish coatings include primer, filler, topcoat, basecoat and activator or hardener coatings. They are either solvent-borne, water-borne or ultraviolet (UV) cured. Among these, water-borne coatings have lower levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) than solvent-borne variants, thereby making them highly effective for all automobiles.
The growing automotive industry across the globe represents one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, the increasing number of road accidents and collisions has resulted in the rising requirement for repair and maintenance activities, thereby stimulating the market growth. In line with this, there is a shift in consumer preference toward customized aftermarket modifications of the vehicles. Automotive refining coatings offer improved aesthetic appeal, surface protection and resistance to heat, temperature and corrosion. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of environment-friendly refinish coatings, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These coatings are manufactured using organic chemicals and have a custom color, faster cure time and minimal VOC emissions. Other factors, including the rising expenditure capacities of consumers, along with the growing demand for recreational vehicles, are anticipated to drive the market further.
