Latest Trend in the Global Commercial Vehicle Coatings Market

  • The Rapidly Expanding Automotive Industry and Diminishing Utilization of Emission-Producing Paints & Coatings 

The automotive sector worldwide is undergoing rapid technological advancement along with creative discoveries. Swift transitions in society, technologies, & growing environmental concerns are transforming the way we travel or how products are transported globally. The emerging trend toward sustainability is compelling automakers to adopt more environmentally conscious materials in their manufacturing processes.

The surging demand for commercial vehicles across different end-user industries, such as retail, e-commerce, logistics, construction, etc., especially across countries like China, India, South Korea, Mexico, & Brazil, is leading to the burgeoning production & sales of automotive coatings globally.

As a result, there are increasing concerns over mounting carbon emissions, owing to which automotive coating manufacturers are focusing actively on developing eco-friendly products in order to lower the environmental degradation caused by their product offerings. Moreover, several government organizations are also taking active initiatives toward encouraging the utilization of efficient technologies to reduce emission levels.

Hence, bio-based polyurethane dispersions & water-based coatings, which have low VOC levels, are gaining traction and replacing the conventionally used solvent-borne solutions in automotive manufacturing. Moreover, the growing end-user requirements for aesthetic & comfortable interiors are further contributing to the mounting demand for waterborne coatings that offer a luxury look & feel to vehicles.

Furthermore, the ever-growing inclination of automakers toward using thermal spray technologies & advanced powder coatings is another prominent aspect expected to boost the growth of the commercial vehicle coatings market through 2027.

Market Segmentation

Based on Technology:

  • Solvent-Borne
  • Water-Based
  • Powder
  • UV-Cured

Of them all, water-borne coatings are emerging as prominent technologies in the commercial vehicle coatings industry, owing to their low toxic & VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) levels and hazardous air pollutant emissions. These coatings offer better color quality, provide more color options, and shades come out brighter & richer. The constantly evolving environmental standards across several countries are leading to the rising requirements for environment-friendly characteristics in paints & coatings, which, in turn, is augmenting the adoption of water-borne automotive coatings. Besides, properties like high chemical resistance, low-temperature processing, & solvent-free preparations are other aspects contributing to their growing popularity worldwide.

On the other hand, powder coatings are also gaining traction globally as they are environmentally friendly, offer incredible aesthetics, protect against chemicals, moisture, & heat, and exhibit properties like high resistance to corrosion, chipping, & abrasion. As a result, they are witnessing growing utilization for coatings on vehicle engines, chassis, wheels, filters, mirrors, wipers, & horns, among others, and, consequently, propelling the overall expansion of the Global Commercial Vehicle Coatings Market.

Based on Substrate:

  • Metal
  • Plastic
  • Composite

Of all substrates, plastic is witnessing a rapidly rising popularity, owing to its properties like lightweight, design flexibility, high resistance to corrosion, reduced costs, excellent durability & recyclability. The progressive shift of automakers from using metals to lightweight materials is driving the demand for plastic substrates in the global commercial vehicle coatings market. In addition, the growing use of carbon-fiber-reinforced polymers in automotive production is also boosting the demand for plastic substrates and, in turn, fueling the growth of the commercial vehicle coatings industry.

Regional Landscape

Geographically, the Global Commercial Vehicle Coatings Market expands across:

  • North America 
  • South America
  • Europe 
  • Middle East & Africa
  • Asia-Pacific

Among all regions globally, Asia-Pacific, one of the major automotive hubs, is the largest Commercial Vehicle Coatings Market, mainly due to the burgeoning automobile production, the mounting prevalence of ride-hailing services, numerous ongoing & upcoming construction projects, and increasing logistics services due to the rapidly expanding retail & e-commerce sectors across the region.

Besides, massive investments by governments of several Asian countries in infrastructure developments are leading to the growing requirements for heavy equipment and, consequently, paints & coatings for them. The rising industrial production that has widened trade routes across the region is also contributing to the burgeoning demand for paints & coatings for commercial vehicles.

China, India, & South Korea are witnessing skyrocketing sales of commercial vehicles and thus are the major shareholders in the Asia-Pacific Commercial Vehicle Coatings Industry. The surging Electric Vehicle (EV) sales, easy availability of low-cost labor, and the extensive presence of leading automobile manufacturers are the key factors contributing to the surging demand for commercial vehicle coatings in these countries.

  • In August 2022, BASF launched its new invisible TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) PPF (Paint Protection Film) in Asia-Pacific, which would offer multifaceted & long-lasting protection for vehicles.
  • The same year in July, the company, in line with its aim to strengthen its position as a leading supplier of automotive coatings across Asia-Pacific, expanded its production capacity of automotive refinish coatings at its site in Jiangmen, South China, to cater to the growing end-user requirements for commercial vehicles in China. 

Market Dynamics

Key Driver: The Growing Penetration of Compact Coating Processes Worldwide

Automakers worldwide are exploring new materials for multi-substrate designs & making lightweight vehicles while actively working on enhancing the automotive coating processes without compromising the quality. Since automotive coatings involve high energy & costs and contribute significantly to environmental degradation, the leading automotive coating manufacturers have started using compact coating processes to lower the degradation of the environment caused by their products. B1:B2 technology of PPG Industries, Inc. and 2-wet & 3-wet of Axalta Coating Systems are the most prominent compact coating techniques being deployed excessively all around the globe. Hence, with more & more automotive OEMs adopting these processes, it is creating remunerative prospects for the leading companies in the Global Commercial Vehicle Coatings Market.

Growth Restraint: Strict Environmental Norms & Increasing Raw Material Prices

The harmful effects of VOC emissions from solvent-borne coatings on the environment have led to stringent regulations for automakers across many countries to use bio-based coatings & paints. As a result, there's a gradually declining utilization of solvent-based solutions in the automotive sector. Moreover, the world is witnessing increasing prices of paint & coating raw materials, i.e., another aspect hampering the supply & demand of automotive coatings worldwide. Hence, these aspects are likely to create significant challenges for the Global Commercial Vehicle Coatings Market to expand during 2022-27.
