According to the Axalta 2018 Colour Popularity Report, blue is the most popular chromatic colour on new cars.

There are 20,000 different variations of blue.

Olaf Adamek, Standox brand manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa, said, “Blue pigments have their roots in art, and as a brand that has The Art of Refinish at its heart, we know the diversity of blue all too well in the refinish industry. A car is never just blue. Some blues evoke a calming feeling from nature, but there are other blues, so-called pure blues, that express more dynamism and energy, and this is why you often see these blues on expensive cars.”

Bodyshops are seeing more chromatic repairs.
