"The ink additives market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period in terms of value"
The global ink additives market is projected to reach USD 793.6 million by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2016 to 2021, in terms of value. The global ink additives industry is witnessing growth on account of increasing applications, technological advancements, and increasing demand in the Asia-Pacific region, mainly from China, Japan, and India. The single most long term growth potential for ink additives in the packaging segment is from the rapid urbanization, increasing disposable incomes and growing preference for easy and compact packaging among consumers. However, the costs incurred across the value chain are a major concern in the ink additives market.
A dispersant helps to stabilize the suspension of pigments in varnish. It assists in the dispersion of fine solid particles into a liquid phase. The pigment dispersant prevents agglomeration by weakening the intermolecular forces. To achieve complete intensity of color and maximum gloss, pigments must be distributed evenly. Fully distributed pigments help to increase shelf life stability and reduce the tendency of the varnish to flocculate or agglomerate.
The additives used in the solvent-based technology are very low in comparison to water-based and UV-based technologies. Though many solvent-based inks are being phased out, they continue to be used by companies due to their low cost during the entire printing ink manufacturing process.
Factors influencing the overall demand in the packaging industry in the Asia-Pacific region include an increasing demand for packaging that arises for food products, such as meat and seafood, along with the rise in the beverage industry due to the increasing consumption of soda, soft drinks, tea, and coffee. In addition to this, the rising demand for corrugated packaging is affected by the rapid expansion of the e-retail industry. This is expected to drive the growth of the ink additives market in the Asia-Pacific region.
