Cathodic Epoxy: The most dominant segment of the Asia-Pacific e-coat market

In 2016, the cathodic epoxy segment is estimated to account for the largest market share, in terms of value. Cathodic epoxy e-coat is the benchmark product used to provide corrosion resistance. It is widely used in the automotive industry, as it provides superior salt spray, and resistance to humidity and cyclic corrosion. However, cathodic epoxy technology generally requires a topcoat to get protected from sunlight. It can be formulated to provide protection over sharp edges and welds without removing or exposing the metal underneath. As these coatings exhibit excellent throwpower, it makes them a great choice for complex ware packages or parts with cavities or hidden areas that need coating.

India to register the highest growth rate in Asia-Pacific e-coat market

The Indian automotive industry is witnessing a phase of rapid transformation and growth, mainly driven by stable economic growth and infrastructure development. The Indian automotive industry has emerged as the seventh largest in the world, and the auto components industry is gearing up to compliment the vehicle industry’s growth. Global automotive companies have projected India as a global sourcing hub due to its rapidly increasing demand. In India, healthy economic growth, changing consumer preferences, improvement in the standard of living and increased spending on infrastructures in automotive and electronics segments are expected to drive the e-coat market in the country.
