Stringent Regulations Related to VOC Emissions Hampers Growth Prospects 

The protean prices of raw materials required for the production of automotive refinish coatings are acting as a major deterrent to the growth of the global market. The raw materials used are primarily derived from crude oil and natural gas. Stringent regulatory reforms pertaining to the VOC emissions, particularly across industrialized regions such as Europe and North America, are adversely affecting the global consumption of solvent-based coatings. 

This, coupled with the efforts by government and non-government organizations to increase awareness regarding the hazardous effects of solvent-based coatings on the environment, is negatively impacting the overall revenue generation of the global automotive refinish coatings market. Nevertheless, these factors are compelling manufacturers and consumers to shift towards water-based coatings, which is likely to unfold tremendous growth opportunities for the market.
