Prices are rising all over the place, and it’s not just about suffering at the gas pump anymore. We’ve even seen an increase in the cost of car paint. Paint companies like PPG enterprises have raised prices multiple times since the onset of pandemic-induced supply-chain shortages.
We want to share with you an update on this problem as well as offer some help on what to do about it.
Car Paint Prices Soaring
Most of the problems with paint scarcity are basically the same as the other material shortages (lumber, oil, silver, circuits, etc.) the country faces. The supply chain is incredibly backlogged and bottle-necked, and therefore, supply delivery is much slower than previously.
Michael H. McGarry, chairman and CEO of PPG Industries, refers to it as “unprecedented levels of raw material and transportation cost.”
Other paint companies have had no choice but to raise prices as well. The various paint manufacturers like AkzoNobel, BASF, and Axalta have raised their prices since the end of 2020.
CCC Intelligent Solutions has tracked paint costs for roughly a quarter-century. The year-over-year increase in paint supplies shot up a staggering 11% from 2020 to 2021, easily the worst spike yet.
