IRL has published a new title for the industrial coatings sector - Potential of Automotive-Related Coatings in Eastern Europe. This new study covers eight key automotive-producing economies in Eastern Europe and examines the markets of automotive OEM coatings, automotive refinishes, powder coatings and coatings for plastics in each.
The total market for these coatings, including non-automotive applications, is estimated at 278,000 tonnes across the eight countries, and is split as shown in Figure 1.
Total demand in 2010 is expected to reach 478,000 tonnes, equivalent to an average growth of 12% pa. In fact, automotive OEM coatings, powder coatings and coatings for plastics will grow on average by about 12-14% pa, with refinish growth trailing slightly at about 9% pa.
From the individual markets we note the -following:
Potential of Automotive-Related Coatings in Eastern Europe is available in two versions. The first is organized according to country and then coatings segment, the second is organized according to coatings segment and then country. Both forms contain just over 200 pages and 93 tables in each. The report costs €2,750 but sections of it, priced individually, will soon be available to purchase online at www.informationresearch.co.uk.
