How Automobile Industry is contributing to the Metal Coatings Market Growth?

The prominent end-user of metal coatings is the automotive industry. Iron and steel account for roughly 70% of an automobile's weight. Surface treated steel sheets are one of the most important items used in automobile manufacture. Surface treated steel sheets are required for basic car frames such as hoods, bumpers, doors, mufflers, and galvanized steel sheets.

In addition, metal coatings play a crucial role in preventing these hoods, doors etc. from rust and oxidation. As a result, one of the primary elements driving the growth in demand for metal coatings has been the expanding vehicle count.

The automobile industry has recently been noted to consolidate, which has aided the sector is reacting to demand. This has resulted in an increase in the demand for metal coatings. A shift towards eco-friendly vehicles, with organic coatings, batteries and other materials/products, in the recent years has also jolted the demand for metal coatings. This may remain in continuation which will drive the demand for metal coatings amid 2022 & 2032.

Category-Wise Analysis:

How Polyurethane and polyester-based metal coatings leads the demand?

Polyurethane and polyester-based metal coatings account for more than 20% of metal coatings demand. Plastisol, siliconized polyester, fluoropolymer, epoxy, and acrylic are some additional notable metal coatings.

One of the primary reasons for coil metal coating's great demand is its benefits. Because the process is continuous and highly automated, the quality of the paint finish is always great with coil metal coatings. Coil metal coating offers a uniform thickness and looks within tight tolerances.

Why Demand for Liquid Metal Coatings is increasing?

Metal coatings in liquid form have a bigger market share than metal coatings in powder form. Metal coatings process leads to the need for process coil with a market share of more than 40%. The liquid form is highly used in the automotive and construction industry owing to automatic processes and machines.

Liquid paints are applied in two layers in coil coating – primer and topcoat. A topcoat system typically has a gauze of around 20 micrometers. For high endurance needs, both primer and topcoat can be used at higher gauzes.

Powder metal coating is required to mix with the proper quantity of other material to form balanced mixtures which are a little complex and time-consuming process. To avoid complexity and save time, more than 74% of consumers use liquid metal coatings. Owing to abovementioned factors, the demand for liquid metal coatings remain in growth.
