(businesspress24) - Traditionally, the automotive sector is highly exigent regarding quality and properties of the coatings that are utilized. For the first time, the market research company Ceresana analyzed the market for automotive paints and coatings in regard to coating layers, application areas, technologies, and product types in detail.

Coating Against Rust

The analysts of Ceresana expect demand for series coating to increase worldwide by 3.7% per year he stages cathodic electrodeposition, car underbody protection, and application of primer surfacers, basecoat, and clearcoat. In regard to quantities, basecoat is the most important coating layer, followed by electrodeposition coating. Basecoat is a colored layer and determines the visual appearance

Use of Solvents Increasing Despite Concerns

Ceresana thoroughly analyzed the market for automotive coatings as well as the demand for individual coating types (acrylic, polyurethane, epoxy, others) and technologies (solventborne / waterborne & others). The most frequently used product type for street vehicles are acrylic coatings, followed by systems based on polyurethane. Sales of PUR products in particular account for an above-average growth. Solventborne coatings keep binding agents and pigments liquid. During past decades, substantial efforts were made to reduce or stop emissions during hardening due to health and environmental reasons: There has been intense research on developing paint systems containing only few or no solvents. Nevertheless, Ceresana expects global demand for solventborne coatings to continue to increase by 2.4% per year until 2024.
