A color coating is a liquid paint or a protective organic layer applied to a steel substrate in a steel coil. The coating is used to protect steel from corrosion caused by external forces such as atmospheric exposure over time, making it stronger and assisting it in maintaining its integrity. Color coated steel, commonly known as pre-painted steel, is a specialized product created from cold-rolled rolled steel or galvanized steel.

Key factors that are anticipated to fuel the demand for color coated steel during the forecast period are rising usage of color coated steel in the automotive industry, growth in the automotive industry increases the demand for color coated steel for manufacturing vehicles, and due to their low production cost and various benefits offered by color coated steel to the automotive industry is expected to drive the market. Conversely, stringent regulatory framework imposed by the government is likely to restrain the market. Increasing demand for eco-friendly products globally is creating opportunities in the market.

As per Growth Market Reports analyst Sakshi Bhoyar, “The Color Coated Steel Market is expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period 2021-2028. Rising application of color coated steel in various end-user industries such as automotive and construction industry, as the color coating steel is high in compressive strength with excellent fire safety characteristics. Color coating steel provides raw material to the electrical industry by reducing operational costs, and available in various color option for decorative design practical effect which is expected to drive the market in the forecast period.”

The growing demand for color-coated steel is increasing in countries like India, Japan, China, due to the increasing number of infrastructural and smart cities projects. Many foreign investors are coming forward for investment in infrastructural projects in India. Moreover, the Indian government has initiated projects such as smart cities, housing for all by 2022, and rural development is expected to drive the residential construction market in India. Moreover, anti-dumping regulations have been imposed by the Government of India, in a variety of steel products for encouraging domestic manufacturers to produce more steel, and guard them against cheap imports from like China, Korea, and Japan. "

COVID-19 has negatively impacted the market due to the decline in supply and demand. Researchers in several countries are working on creating affordable and attractive color-coated steels that can be used for the beautification of houses. These advances are anticipated to have a significant impact on the construction and steel industry.

The COVID-19 pandemic has moderately declined the market. Once construction and automotive sectors recover from the impact of the pandemic, the market is likely to restore
. As a result, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the global color coated steel market. Furthermore, Investors were restricted from investing in the industries, and the key players in the market were extremely worried. Investment in the construction and automotive industry is typically high across the region, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which reduced end-user investments in innovative and advanced products and technologies.

The Color coated steel value chain includes activities such as strategy, product development, scoping, user documentation, marketing, implementation, training and certification, maintenance and support, licensing, and operation.
