The global market for ink additives is projected to reach USD 793.6 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period. 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. Also, the growing e-commerce business in the region is expected to lead to an increase in the demand for corrugated boxes and boards, further leading to the growth of the ink additives market.

The ink additives market is segmented on the basis of type, technology, process, application, and region. In terms of type, slip/rub materials accounted for the largest share of the market globally. These materials are used for care products and polishes for improving water repellency, texture, abrasion resistance, anti-blocking, and surface slip. Printing ink manufacturers have diverse requirements for waxes and additives, whether it be for more environment friendly products, stricter mandates for packaging, or meeting standards. Most of the new developments in the industry are driven by compliances and regulations. This not only holds true for packaging but also for all consumer goods that need graphic printing or visual impact.

The solvent based technology is used across the globe, owing to its low cost. Solvents used during the process, evaporate very easily owing to their high volatility and hence do not impose any problem with regard to the migration of the ink on the substrate. Major manufacturing companies are focusing on all solvent-based products for gravure and flexographic processes. The water-based technology is preferred over the solvent-based in developed countries such as the U.S. and Germany, where stricter regulatory norms have to be followed. Solvent-based ink additives are still very common in economies such as China, India, Brazil, and South East Asia. Absence of strict regulations on the use of solvent-based ink additives benefit the market in these regions.

The lithographic process led the ink additives market in 2015. 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 the smooth print, as well as lack of any improper impressions or rings that could 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. The growing demand for paper boards and corrugated boxes for online purchase is leading to the demand for ink additives which is driving the market.

The packaging application led the ink additives market in 2015. The Brazilian, Russian, Indian and Chinese (BRIC) markets accounted for around 30% of the demand for global packaging in the same year. Packaging sales in the emerging markets are expected to show growth as both, increased consumption and demand for consumer goods drives the need for more sophisticated packaging due to the growing disposable incomes in the regions. Flexible packaging is gaining popularity among the consumers owing to its convenience and easy handling technique. Flexible packaging is used across the food & beverage 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

The Asia-Pacific region (comprising China, India, Japan, South Korea, and others) accounted for the largest share of the global ink additives market in 2015. Growing demand for flexographic printing inks in the packaging industry for corrugated containers, flexible packaging, folding cartons, labels and tags, and metal cans are driving the ink additives market in the Asia-Pacific region. South America is projected to grow at the second highest rate after the Asia-Pacific region during the forecast period.

The ink additives market is highly competitive with a large number of small players, especially in China and India. The ink additives market is led by various players, depending upon their core competencies. New product developments and mergers & acquisitions are the major strategies that were adopted over the past three years.

ALTANA AG (Germany) has a strong foothold across the U.S., Germany, and China. The company’s overseas business accounts for over 85% of its total turnover. In order to gain a market share, the company has invested heavily in R&D and is focused on diversifying its business across new industries and targets new markets. New products that fulfil the targeted requirements of customers are expected to benefit company growth.
