Automotive Paint Additives Market Segment Analysis - By Type

Rheology Modifier Paint Additives is widely used in the Automotive Paint Additives Market in 2019. Rheology modifiers are vital additives used for the specific application in almost every coating to achieve desired rheological characteristics. These additives also help to monitor the stability of the paint shelf, ease of use, open time / wet edge and sagging, in addition to having the desired viscosity. Rheology Modifiers allow formulators to change paint flow behavior. That way, painters benefit from enhanced features of viscosity and application. A paint's sag resistance is enhanced by a rapid but controlled increase in viscosity after application. Rheology modifiers help prevent sedimentation of the pigments within a formulation during the transportation and storage of the paint.

Automotive Paint Additives Market Segment Analysis - By Application

Interior held the largest share in the Automotive Paint Additives Market in 2019 by growing at CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period.

China is the world's biggest automotive market, according to the International Trade Administration, with the Chinese government forecasting car production to reach 30 million units by 2020 and 35 million by 2025. India also became the fourth largest automotive market in 2018, according to the India Brand Equity Base, with revenue rising 8.3 percent year-on-year to 3.99 million units. It was also the seventh biggest commercial vehicle producer in 2018.

Automotive Paint Additives Market Drivers 

Expansion of Business 

The primary factors projected to drive the growth of the demand for automotive paint additives are industry expansion through the incorporation of new production plants by leading automotive paint additives firms and steps taken by automotive companies to increase the efficiency of automotive paint additives in order to minimize the environmental effects. By incorporating new production plants, automotive paint additive suppliers are expanding their industry in North America. For example, in East Chattanooga, Nippon Paint, one of the global leaders in the automotive paint market, has incorporated a new 270,000-square-foot factory that will drive market growth, which in turn will boost demand for additives for automotive paints.

Automotive Paint Additives Market Challenges

Effects of solvents in paint additives 

Solvents extract or dissolve the binders and reduce the color additives viscosity and thickness. Solvents used in paint additive formulas are dangerous because they are either flammable or explosive and are human carcinogens. When painting cures, most solvents used as a paint additive evaporate, which produces volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. Volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions are being increasingly controlled, considering the harmful effects on human health and the environment. Environmental challenges associated with conventional fabrics, application processes for paint additives, and coating waste are a motivating force for developing solutions to pollution regulation. For these reasons, the solvent will create a hurdle in the forecast period for the market for automotive paint additives.
