Strict government regulations against pollution and environmental concerns have increased the demand for low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds), water based paints. Innovations in powder coating technology and the relatively niche application of UV technology in automotive paints and coatings are other factors bolstering demand. Moreover, rising aftermarket automotive and coating market owing to maintenance, repair and refurbishing of older vehicles still on the road are expected to impel the growth of market. Additionally, growing number of road accidents in North America is also anticipated to drive the growth of these products over the upcoming years. According to Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) there were more than 30,000 fatal car crashes in 2015 across United States. Major market players are acquiring various companies around the world to sustain market competition and to hold strong position in automotive paints and coatings market. For instance, Axalta Coating Systems, a global supplier of liquid and powder coatings has acquired Plascoat Systems Limited, a leading supplier of thermoplastic powder coatings in August 2017.

However, growth in the market may be restricted by declining auto sales in the region. Auto sales in the US reported a decline for the fourth month in a row in June 2017. Since the largest application of automotive paints and coatings is in passenger cars, these downward trends can adversely affect the market demand for automotive paints and coatings. The coatings industry in Canada continues to be heavily government regulated, further adding to market challenges.
