The global ink solvent market, along with its applications, has witnessed a moderate growth for the past few years and this growth is estimated to increase in the coming years. The properties such as solvency, good flow, solvent stability, dilutability, remarkable gloss, and provides good surface appearance and ink performance will be the key influencing factors for the global ink solvents with an increased emphasis on its different applications and their ink solvent chemistry types.

The market is experiencing moderate growth which is expected to continue in the near future, mainly driven by the highly growing Asia-Pacific, and RoW regions. Moderate amount of mergers and acqisitions are made by different market players to serve the applications in the future. The Asia-Pacific region is the major market that accounted for about 47.40% market demand by value of the total global demand in 2013.

More than 48% of the total demand was consumed by the flexible packaging application in the ink solvent industry in 2013. The growth of the corrugated cardboard and folding cartons applications is also driving the growth for ink solvents.

The drivers of the ink solvent industry are growing demand for printing inks from the packaging industry. The demand for flexible packaging is increasing in China, which is one of drivers for the ink solvent market in Asia-Pacific.

This study basically aims to estimate the global market for 2014 and to project its demand by 2019. This market research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the global ink solvents market. We have used various secondary sources such as directories, industry journals, and databases to identify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study of the market. The primary sources–experts from related industries and suppliers–have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess the future prospects.
