Automotive Coatings

This study examines the global automotive coatings industry, which is divided into two major applications:

  • OEM (original equipment manufacturer)
  • automotive refinishing

Excluded from the scope of the study are products such as:

  • paint thinners
  • solvents
  • plasters
  • adhesives and sealants

Historical data (2009, 2014, and 2019) are reported in metric tons and current US dollars, with forecasts provided for 2024 and 2029. The term “demand” actually refers to “apparent consumption”, and is defined as production (also referred to variously as “shipments”, “output”, or “supply”) from a country’s domestic manufacturing facilities plus imports minus exports. It is used interchangeably with the terms “market”, “sales”, and “consumption”. In many cases, coatings production data were converted from gallons or liters based on estimates of the average weight.
