India Automotive Paints and Coatings Market Driver:

Growing Demand for Functional Coatings to Promote Automotive Paints and Coatings Market –  The Indian Automotive Paints & Coatings Industry has evolved significantly, with a marked change in consumers' preferences & requirements within the sector. The growth in demand for functional coatings is at the forefront of trends that have transformed this industry in recent years. Functional coatings are specialized formulations designed not just to beautify surfaces but also to enhance their performance & durability. These coatings are particularly important in electric vehicles, where thermal management varnishes help to regulate the temperature of batteries so that they will last longer & perform better. For instance:

  • In 2023, MG launched its new EV in the Indian market by the name Comet EV.

Furthermore, functional coatings are applied to different vehicle components to provide benefits such as corrosion resistance, heat insulation, scratch resistance, and self-cleaning properties. Hence, owing to the beneficial aspects of the Automotive Paints and Coatings Market in India is destined to uplift.

India Automotive Paints and Coatings Market Opportunity:

Growing Market for Automotive Refinishes to Open New Doors for the Market Players – Recently, the India Automotive Market has been witnessing dynamic growth, owing to changing consumer expectations, rising market demand for used vehicles, and an increased interest in car customization. This industry shift has prompted a surge in the demand for automotive refinish products, thus boosting the growth of automotive paints & coatings across the country. Given the desire to be affordable and reliable, the market for used cars in India is experiencing strong growth, thus augmenting the demand for refinishing products in the country.

Additionally, in the Indian market, environmental consciousness is on the rise. Consequently, a shift to eco-friendlier paint & coating solutions has been boosting the acceptance of water-based paints & coatings. Further, meeting these requirements, coupled with strict regulatory policies, has highly motivated the manufacturers of automotive paints & coating products to invest in environmentally friendly products, thus opening new opportunities in the India Automotive Paints and Coatings Market.

India Automotive Paints and Coatings Market Challenge:

Stringent Regulations Related to Paints & Coatings to Negatively Affect the Market Growth – Paint & coatings manufacturers must constantly enhance their processes to meet the growing number of regulatory policies imposed by the government. One of such challenges faced by the industry is the stringent environmental regulations imposed by both the central & state governments. These regulations aim to reduce emissions, control the release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and minimize the environmental impact of the coatings manufacturing process. Furthermore, compliance with these regulations often requires substantial investments in technology and processes to reduce pollution & waste, resulting in long approval time, which creates challenges for the India Automotive Paints and Coatings Market.

India Automotive Paints and Coatings Market Trend:

Growing Demand for Electric Vehicles Creating New Trends Across the Market – India's automotive landscape is experiencing a monumental shift as the demand for electric vehicles (EVs) surges. With increasing environmental awareness, government incentives, and advancements in technology, EVs are rapidly gaining traction in the Indian market, thus supporting the growth of paints & coatings in this industry. India with an alarming level of pollution increase in many of the cities has made it an attractive market for electric vehicles. These vehicles produce zero tailpipe emissions, making them an attractive choice for environmentally conscious consumers and government bodies committed to improving air quality, thus propelling the market’s growth. For instance

  • In 2023, Hyundai launched its new electric vehicle by the name Ioniq 5 under its flagship product line. This new EV vehicle launched will be assembled in India only.  

The Indian government has played a pivotal role in promoting electric vehicles. Initiatives such as the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (FAME) scheme provide financial incentives, including subsidies and tax benefits, to both manufacturers and consumers. Additionally, some states offer additional incentives to encourage the adoption of EVs, thus supporting the growth of EVs, which in turn will enhance the market size of the Automotive Paints and Coatings Market in India.
