DUBLIN, July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/w3mp6n/global_automotive) has announced the addition of the "2014 Report on the International Automotive Refinish Coatings Market - Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.
Growing preference for water-based coatings is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. An increase in the demand for such products can be attributed to stringent environmental regulations, particularly in geographies such as North America and Europe.
The main aim of such regulations is to reduce volatile organic content in coatings; consequently, there has been a decrease in demand for solvent-based coatings. Although water-based coatings have certain limitations such as low chemical resistance, surface performance, and flexibility, low resistance to low temperatures, and high drying time, vendors are trying to improve these products.
According to the report, many factors are contributing to the growth of the Global Automotive Refinish Coatings market, of which an increase in the number of operating vehicles in countries such as India, China, Brazil, and Russia is the most important driver.
