[125 Pages Report] Imaging chemicals are chemicals substances that used for producing or developing images. Based on the product type, these imaging chemicals are categorized as printing inks, image developers, and other imaging chemicals. Printing inks are the most commonly used imaging chemicals globally. Printing inks are used in conventional printing technologies such as offset, gravure, and screen printing, as well as in digital printing technologies in the form of inkjets and toner cartridges. These are used in applications such as printing & packaging, textile processing, and medical diagnostics, among others.

The market size for imaging chemicals was USD 20.77 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 29.97 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.3% between 2017 and 2022. The global imaging chemicals market is projected to reach 6,803 kiloton by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.4% between 2017 and 2022. APAC accounted for the largest share of the imaging chemicals market globally.

Imaging Chemicals Market

“Printing inks is expected to be the largest product type segment in imaging chemicals market during the forecast period.”

Printing inks accounted for the largest share of the imaging chemicals market, globally. Printing inks are used for both analog and digital printing processes. Conventional printing technology is expected to dominate, which is expected to drive the market for printing inks. The market share of digital printing is expected to increase during the forecast period, which is expected to drive the demand for imaging chemicals during the forecast period.

The growth in the demand for imaging chemicals in this application segment is attributed to the increase in the packaging printing, and the shift of printing technology towards digital printing is expected to boost the market demand for imaging chemicals in this application segment.

“APAC is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period.”

APAC is projected to be the fastest-growing market, in terms of value, between 2017 and 2022. The printing & packaging application segment is the largest application of imaging chemicals in APAC. The textile processing application is projected to be the fastest-growing application for imaging chemicals in APAC. Increasing exports and a rise in domestic consumption of textiles is expected to drive the market demand for textile printing in the region. Emerging markets, such as China, India, and Thailand, among other countries, are the major growth drivers of the APAC market.

Imaging Chemicals Market

Market Dynamics

Driver: Technological shift towards digital and on-demand printing

Owing to faster turnaround time, high quality, lower printing cost for smaller quantities of printing and easily customized printing, digital printing is widely adopted globally. Though the conventional printing process accounts for the largest printing technology, digital printing is expected to take away significant market share from conventional printing technology during the forecast period. This is expected to boost the growth of printing inks used in toners and ink cartridges during the forecast period. However, the conventional printing technology is expected to be in use for large volume printing applications such as newspaper and magazine printing owing to its low cost per print (for large volumes) and reliability for repetitive printing.

Restraint:Digitization hampering the growth of imaging chemicals

An increasing trend of digitization has resulted in the sluggish growth of the imaging chemicals. Electronic storage devices are fast replacing printed archives. E-newspapers, e-media, e-commerce, and e-advertising have drastically reduced the use of print media. This has impacted the usage of imaging chemicals in the application areas.

Opportunity:Return of film-based imaging

Digital imaging is fast replacing conventional film-based photography. Digital imaging offers several advantages over film-based photography such as faster turnaround time, faster developing process, and better color contrast. However, the demand for film-based photography is expected to grow, driven by the increased usage of photographic films by professional photographers. Kodak, a leading photographic film manufacturer, has relaunched its film product KODAK EKTACHROME, which used for photography and motion picture applications. Photographic film sales in leading photographic film manufacturing companies such as Kodak, Fujifilm, and Harman Technology has increased over the past 2-3 years. This return to growth of film-based photography is expected to drive the demand for developers, stop bath solutions, fixers, and other chemicals used for photographic film development.

Challenge: Higher cost of image printing and developing process compared to digital media

One of the shortcomings of the imaging chemicals is the higher cost involved in printing or developing images. Photographic film development makes use of developers, stop bath solutions and fixer along with other chemicals to produce the image which is expensive. The image developing requires a dark room to process these films. Also, the developing process is tedious and time-consuming, which adds to the cost. Furthermore, digital printing requires expensive printing inks such as inks, which are used to print x-rays, MRI-scans, and CT scans. The cost incurred is much higher compared to digital media storage. The rising raw material and energy costs are one of the major challenges faced by the imaging chemicals market.

Recent Developments

  • In 2018, Eastman Kodak Company relaunched EKTACHROME Film and plans to cater to motion pictures and still photography applications. The product provides extremely fine grain, clean colors, great tones, and contrasts.
  • In December 2017, DIC and Nanosys (US) announced a collaboration in the development of Inks for use in the production of Inkjet-Printed quantum dot color filters for displays. This development has helped DIC to strengthen its marketing.
  • In October 2017, Kodak and Pinewood signed a long-term collaboration on Kodak’s new film processing lab, Kodak Film Lab London. This film processing facility will consume imaging chemicals for the image developing process and hence will bolster the imaging chemicals market.
  • In September 2017, Sun Chemical, a subsidiary of DIC Corporation, acquired Joules Angstrom U.V. Printing Inks Corporation (US). This acquisition helped both companies with numerous opportunities to provide customers with expanded product lines and services.
  • In May 2017, DIC Corporation established a new manufacturing plant in Chiba, Japan, for small modules in the SEPAREL series of hollow-fiber membrane modules. These are used in the degassing of inks for industrial inkjet printers. The new facility is expected to strengthen DIC’s production volume and revenue in the new region.
