What Is All the Fuss About? The Benefits of Paint Protection Film
Now more than ever, paint protection film is being considered by many consumers because the roads are not in the condition they were back in the day. Given the fact that less resources are directed towards infrastructure, you tend to find more debris, more rocks, and more refuse on the roads these days. With the increase in such materials, there is a greater chance that something might get kicked up and scratch your car or put an annoying ding in your hood.
Paint protection film is the very thing to preemptively counteract those outside forces. Simply put, paint protection film is just what it says. It is a razor thin, urethane film that is placed over the painted components of your vehicle and protects the paint surface from getting damaged by road debris.
Better still, the paint protection film products that are out today have remarkable “self-healing” properties. That means that if something scratches the surface of your vehicle, the film will absorb the impact of the rock or other object. Then with a little heat – usually just the heat of the sun is enough – the scratch on the film will look as if it magically disappeared. That is because the heat applied to the film allows the film some flexibility to reform itself and smooth out anything that caused a scratch. The technology is really amazing.
Marketing Reports Showing Paint Protection Film Growth Into the Future
In the last few months a number of reports have come out with regard to the market for paint protection film. Two examples are the reports from Grand View Research and from ResearchAndMarkets.com. Both reports have a sunny outlook for paint protection film products into the future.
Indeed, based on those reports it appears that the global paint protection film market will reach $369.3 million (in U.S. dollars) by the 2022, with key growth in developing automotive aftermarket regions like China, Southeast Asia, and India. Who would have thought that the plastic urethane film originally designed in the U.S. to protect helicopter blades on U.S. army helicopters in Vietnam would end up being such a popular product in those regions that are beginning to focus on aftermarket products for personal vehicles.
Traditionally, Teflon coatings were the preferred choice to protect certain surfaces. However, the growth of the whole market has allowed for large and small companies to join the paint protection world, and offer a great variety of products at various price ranges. In addition, the lifespan of Teflon used to give it an edge, yet paint protection film’s lifespan – which can extend up to 5 years after installation – has made paint protection film a much more cost-effective choice.
