Analyst Review

Automotive OEM coatings are specialty paints and coatings used in automobiles to protect the underlying metal or synthetic body panels from harsh environment. Initially, chromium, lead and other heavy metals were employed in automotive coatings. In addition, with the introduction of various environmental regulations, the use of toxic chemicals has been prohibited, which has further resulted in a switch to water-based paints and coatings.

High demand from passenger cars and light commercial vehicle segments boost the growth of the market. Moreover, increase in demand from developing countries, such as China and India, owing to rapid urbanization and rise in consumer spending capabilities drive the market growth.

The European automotive OEM coatings market offers promising opportunities for the manufacturers, owing to enhanced production of automobiles in Germany, France, Czech Republic, and UK and increase in number of manufacturers. In addition, the increase in demand for efficient and cost-effective coating solutions and increase in disposable incomes in the developing economies, such as Poland, Russia, and Netherlands, drives the European market. Asia-Pacific is estimated to account for the largest market share, followed by North America.
