Ink Additives Market

Ink Additives Market by Type ( Dispersing & Wetting Agents, Foam Control Additives, Slip/Rub Materials, Rheology Modifiers), Process, Technology, Application (Packaging, Publishing, Printing), and Region - Global Forecast to 2023

Report Code: CH 3022 Feb, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

[148 Pages Report] The ink additives market size is estimated at USD 1.5 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 2.0 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.2%. This growth is attributed to the increasing applications, technological advancements, and increasing demand from Asia Pacific, mainly from India, China, and Southeast Asian countries. In addition, the growing e-commerce business in APAC is expected to increase the demand for corrugated boxes and boards, thereby driving the ink additives market.

Ink Additives Market

The dispersing & wetting agents segment dominate the ink additives market and is projected to be the fastest-growing type.

In terms of type, dispersing & wetting agents accounted for the largest share of the market, globally. Both these categories of additives provide several advantages. Dispersants help to stabilize the suspension of pigments in varnish. They assist in the dispersion of fine solid particles in the liquid phase. Whereas, wetting agents reduce the surface tension and improve pigment dispersion. High surface tension makes it difficult to wet the surface of substrates properly. Proper wetting of substrate is necessary for achieving excellent print quality, as when the surface is properly wet, the liquid spreads over the substrates evenly without forming droplets.

The solvent-based technology dominates the ink additives market

Solvent-based technology is used globally owing to its low cost. Solvents used during the process evaporates very easily owing to its high volatility and hence imposes minor problem with regard to migration of the ink on the substrate. Major manufacturing companies are focusing on all solvent-based products for gravure and flexographic processes. Water-based technology is preferred over solvent-based in developed countries such as the US and Germany, where there are stricter regulatory norms to follow. Solvent-based ink additives are still very common in economies such as China, India, Brazil, and Southeast Asia countries. The absence of stricter regulations benefits this technology in these regions.

The lithographic process is the most commonly used process in the ink additives market.

The lithographic process segment dominated the overall market in 2017. These are also called offset inks. In this printing process, the image is printed on a flat metal surface then rolled on rubbers and finally on the substrate. This printing technology is recognized by its smooth print as well as lack of any improper impressions or rings that can be found in gravure and letterpress printing. Lithography is used for printing books, advertising, catalogs, cards, posters, direct mail inserts, packaging, coupons, and art. This technology is mostly used in non-food applications. Growing demand for paper boards and corrugated boxes for online purchase is expected to benefit the market.

Packaging is the largest application of ink additives.

The packaging application segment dominated the overall market in 2017. Packaging sales are expected to show growth in the emerging markets as both increased consumption and demand for consumer goods drives the need for more sophisticated packaging with the growing disposable income. Flexible packaging is gaining popularity owing to its convenience and easy handling techniques among the consumers. Flexible packaging is used across the food & beverages industry and for cigarette packaging. Growing online purchase is also expected to positively impact the demand for corrugated boxes and boards and further impact the demand for ink additives.

Ink Additives Market

Asia Pacific is projected to be the largest market, in terms of value, during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of the global ink additives market in 2017. The growing demand for flexographic printing inks in the packaging industry for corrugated containers, flexible packaging, folding cartons, labels & tags, and metal cans is driving the ink additives market in Asia Pacific.

The key players profiled in the report include ALTANA AG (US), BASF SE (Germany), Evonik Industries (Germany), Elementis PLC (UK), Dow Corning (US), Shamrock Technologies (US), Munzing Chemie GmbH (Germany), Solvay S.A. (Belgium), Harima Chemicals Group (Japan), and Lubrizol (US).

These companies have adopted various organic as well as inorganic growth strategies between 2013 and 2019 to strengthen their position in the market. New product launch and merger & acquisition were among the key growth strategies adopted by these leading players to enhance their product offering and regional presence and meet the growing demand for ink additives from emerging economies.

Recent Developments

  • In February 2017, ALTANA AG through its BYK segment acquired the plastics additives manufacturer PolyAd Services on February 1, 2017. This strategy was undertaken to strengthen BYK’s plastics additives segment.
