Global Automotive Paint Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A type of paint that is used on automobiles. It is a type of enamel that is applied to the car's body to protect it from rust and corrosion.


Solvent is basically a paint thinner that reduces the viscosity of the paint and allows it to flow easily. It's major applications are in automotive paints, but it also finds its use in wood finishing, printing Inks and coatings among others. The growth factor for solvent based paints market is mainly driven by growing demand from emerging economies such as China & India due to low cost coupled with high performance offered by these products.


Water is one of the important ingredients used in the formulation of automotive paints. It helps in reducing friction between surfaces, thus making it easier for paint to stick. Also, it acts as a carrier for carrying pigments and additives into the paint layer. The viscosity of water is very low compared to that of other solvents which makes its application easy and also reduces wastage during mixing with other materials.

Application Insights:

Passenger vehicle application dominated the global automotive paint market, accounting for more than 47.0% share of the overall revenue in 2017. Rising demand for passenger vehicles in developing countries such as China and India is expected to remain a key trend driving the segment over the forecast period. In addition, increasing sales of passenger cars in developed countries including Germany, France and U.K., are anticipated to propel industry growth over the next eight years.

The commercial vehicle application segment is projected to witness significant growth at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to rising demand from construction companies across various regions including North America and Europe Pacific Asia on account of increasing infrastructure spending by governments worldwide mainly due to increased awareness regarding road safety coupled with improved economic conditions resulting into higher disposable income levels which will increase investments into new commercial vehicles or trucks thereby supporting segment growth during this period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share in 2017 and is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing automobile production in countries, such as China, India, Japan and South Korea. Moreover, rising disposable income levels coupled with a growing population will also have a positive impact on regional growth. Increasing demand for luxury vehicles is expected to drive product demand further.

Europe was valued at USD X billion in 2017 owing to high automotive manufacturing standards across Germany, U-K., France and Italy among other Eastern European countries that are members of the EU28+ association along with Norway & Switzerland (non-EU).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for automobiles due to rising population and income levels in developing countries is expected to drive the automotive paint market growth.
  • Stringent government regulations pertaining to vehicle emissions are likely to propel the need for new coatings with better environmental performance, thereby propelling the automotive paint market growth.
  • Growing popularity of metallic and pearl finishes in vehicles is projected to fuel the demand for automotive paints, thereby driving the market growth over the forecast period.
  • Increasing R&D investments by leading players towards development of innovative products is anticipated to boost Automotive Paint Market growth during forecast period
