The clear coat segment to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period

Based on coating, the clear coat segment held the largest market share in the global automotive paints market, contributing to nearly two-fifths of the total market share in 2018, and is estimated to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. This is due to its ability to provide easy adherence to the flexible components such as plastic bumper. However, the base coat segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR of 5.9% from 2019 to 2026, owing to rise in preferences of consumers for innovative automotive paints.
