According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Refinish Paint Market is accounted for $8.17 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $12.29 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period. Refinish paints are made from resins, additives, solvents, and pigments. The resin binds and holds all the pigments together. In woodworking and the decorative arts, refinishing refers to the act of repairing or reapplying the wood finishing on an object. In practice, this may apply to the paint or wood finish top coat, lacquer, or varnish. Refinishing can apply to a variety of surfaces and materials such as wood, glass, metal, plastic, and paint, although in Britain when referring to wood or wooden furniture it is commonly known as repolishing. The refinish paints industry is a raw material-intensive industry. Automotive refinish coatings are used by the automotive body shops and repair centers for refinishing the vehicles.

Market Dynamics:


Increasing demand for automobiles

In countries such as China, India, Japan is a huge market for the automobiles sector. Since in these countries there is continuous growth in the automobile manufacturing sector. According to the annual report of OICA (International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers), for most vehicles manufactured in the year 2018, China, India & Japan are in the top 20 countries around the world. In which China has ranked 6th whereas India & Japan are ranked 14th and 18th respectively. So, in countries like these, there is a chance of huge growth opportunity for Refinish paints market.


Lack of skilled technicians

The lack of skilled technicians to apply these ever-increasingly complex coating systems had increased in the last few years. So, Industries need to take it on notice to increase efficiency. According to Holmberg, the biggest challenges refinish customers face are related to efficiency and the workforce.


Increasing adoption of sustainable and environment friendly products

Stringent governments’ regulations towards using sustainable and environmentally friendly products are likely, to aid the refinish paint market, as waterborne paints are less toxic and hazardous than solvent-based paints. So, manufacturers are also looking more towards using sustainable products.


Volatility in raw material prices

The volatility in raw material prices impedes the growth of the refinished paint market. However, environmental hazards related to toxic waste produced from refinishing paints and price volatility of raw materials will reportedly hinder the growth of the global market.

The waterborne coating segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The waterborne coating segment is growing at the highest CAGR in the market. Waterborne coatings are the most used refinishing paints, as it is less toxic and hazardous. Waterborne paints have been evaluated as alternatives to solvent-based paints. The volatile organic compound (VOC) content of waterborne paints is significantly lower than conventional solvent-based paints, thereby reducing VOC emissions waterborne paints are composed of synthetic resins and pigments that are kept dispersed in water by surfactants. They also contain small amounts of coalescing solvents waterborne paints, dry by evaporation of water.

The solvent borne coating segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The solvent-borne coating segment is expected to be the largest share in the market. Solvent-borne coating technology offers a higher gloss level and excellent adhesion when compared to other technologies.  It is also less affected by environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity during the curing phase. 

Region with highest share:

The Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest share in the market. Emerging economies such as India, China, and different Southeast Asian countries are further attracting several global players to start their manufacturing base in Asia-Pacific, thus boosting global demand for refinishing paints. These manufacturers are competing to reach an extensive customer base in countries, such as China and India to cater to the increasing demand for refinish coating from the various end-users in these countries.

Region with highest CAGR:

The Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR due to the rising demand for refinish coating from the various end-users, presence of various prominent manufacturers in this region, increasing sales of pre-owned vehicles, growing cab services, and increasing vehicle repair and body shops in the region.
