US demand for automotive coatings, adhesives and sealants will reach $5.3 billion in 2012. Slow gains in the dominant coatings segment will offset faster growth in adhesives and sealants. Design trends will favor adhesives over mechanical fasteners and liquid over mechanical gaskets. This study analyzes the $4.6 billion US automotive coating, adhesive and sealant industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007 and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by formulation and substrate (e.g., solvent-based, water-based); polymer type (e.g., urethane, epoxy, acrylic, synthetic elastomers, silicone); market (OEM, aftermarket); and application (e.g., exterior, light vehicles, medium and heavy vehicles). The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 40 industry competitors, including PPG Industries and DuPont.
