    Market Highlights

    The automotive industry is undergoing the most disruptive journey with the industry moving on several fronts including electric vehicles, lightweight vehicles, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, and connectivity. The selection of the materials for manufacturing vehicles and their components proved to decisive in achieving overall vehicle performance. Surface treatment chemicals are considered an influential material on the overall performance of the parts used in the automotive industry.

    The automotive industry remains the biggest demand generator of surface treatment chemicals over the eons among several industries. All the major companies are serving their surface treatment chemicals for the automotive industry. The demand for surface treatment chemicals is immensely impacted by the Pandemic, which took the market to below its 2012-market value. The market is estimated to commence recovery from 2022 onwards, helping the industry stakeholder to recoup the market’s pre-pandemic level by 2023, ultimately pushing the market to reach an iconic figure of US$ 1.5 billion in 2026.

    Market Segments' Analysis

    Stratview Research has firstly segmented the automotive surface treatment market based on the type as OEM, Components, and wheels. OEM is expected to remain the largest segment of the market during the forecast period. OEMs are demanding coatings and plating chemicals for decorative painting purposes and eventually corrosion protection on the different parts of vehicle bodies and components.

    Based on the chemical type, the automotive surface treatment market is segmented as cleaners, conversion coatings, paint strippers, activation & passivation agents, and others. The cleaner is estimated to maintain its huge dominance in the market during the forecast period because of its wide usage in the automotive industry. They are used on the body, chassis, and other major parts to prevent corrosion and rust. A multitude of cleaners, such as acidic cleaners and alkaline cleaners, are used in several applications in the automotive industry. Cleaning is the first and foremost step in automotive surface treatment processes, assuring the significant use of these chemicals in the industry.

    Based on the substrate type, the market is segmented as metals, plastics, and others. Metal is likely to remain the most dominant substrate type in the market during the forecast period, whereas plastic is expected to be the fastest-growing substrate type over the same period. Stringent regulations regarding the enhancement of fuel efficiency and reduction in carbon emissions leaving no options for automakers except to incorporate lightweight materials, specially reinforced plastics, with an aim to truncate the overall vehicle weight. Change from heavyweight metal to lightweight plastics is driving the demand for surface treatment in the plastics segment.

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market for automotive surface treatments during the forecast period. China, India, Japan, and South Korea are the biggest demand generators of surface treatments for the automotive industry in the region. These countries are also the homes of several leading automakers with the presence of huge automotive component manufacturing and assembly plants. All the major surface treatment manufacturers also have an excellent presence in the major countries to tap the growing market potentials.

    Europe and North America, the other two major markets, are also anticipated to create healthy growth opportunities in the post-pandemic market developments. However, the growth rate of both markets is likely to be significantly lower than that of the Asia-Pacific region in the coming five years.
