US automotive coating, adhesive and sealant demand will rise 9.4 percent annually through 2014 as motor vehicle output recovers from the recent downturn. Coatings will remain the dominant segment, with water-based, powder and radiation-curable types leading gains.
This study analyzes the $3.6 billion US automotive coating, adhesive and sealant industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by formulation and substrate (e.g., solvent-based, water-based), polymer (e.g., urethane, acrylic, epoxy, synthetic elastomers, silicone), market (OEM, aftermarket) and application (light vehicles, medium- and heavy-duty vehicles).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players, including PPG Industries, DuPont and Henkel.
