Paints market for metallic paints will see a steady growth in the coming years as the demand for metallic finish is on a steady rise given the attractive glossy finish offered by these paints. In developed regions such as Europe and North America, metallic paints are used widely even for heavy commercial vehicles along with passenger cars and light commercial vehicles; whereas, in the Asia-Oceania region, solid paints are preferred as heavy commercial paints.
The global demand for automobiles is accelerating year-on-year. This demand is fueling manufacturers to strive for enhanced quality in all aspects of automotive manufacturing.
As with most consumer-driven industries, the quality and commercial attractiveness of the product are of absolute importance to any automotive manufacturer. The appearance of vehicle; its style, shape, and bodywork finish, can go a long way in terms of sales.
The quality of the vehicle paintwork is, therefore, an essential part of the automotive production process and one which cannot be ignored. Paint application is one of the most demanding aspects of automobile manufacturing.
Paint coating not only protects the body surface but also enhances the visual appeal by adding color and gloss.
