The low migration inks market is projected to reach USD 2.72 Billion by 2022 from USD 1.82 Billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 8.4% between 2017 and 2022. Migration of inks is a major issue in applications such as food, beverages, and cosmetics. Inks with high molecular weight are used for printing and labeling to avoid contamination in these products. Inks with high molecular weight using selected components are used for printing on food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, and cosmetics packaging to ensure the accepted migration limits for suitable packaging structure. The growth of this market is mainly driven by the regulations for end-use industries such as food & beverages and pharmaceuticals.

The low migration inks market can be segmented on the basis of process such as gravure, flexography, off-set, and digital. These are majorly used in food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetic packaging and labeling. Conventional inks tend to transfer from the print side to the packed side if there is absence of effective barrier. To avoid this, low migration inks are used. The migration of inks depends on many factors, such as the type of substrate on which these inks are used, packaging design, logistics, and printing processes used.

The flexography segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR, in terms of both value and volume. The gravure process is dominant in Asia Pacific, but the trend is expected to change in this region in the coming years. Flexography is majorly used in regions such as Europe, North America, and South America. Owing to this, the flexography process segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR. Flexography process is faster as compared to gravure and can be used on paper, plastics, pouches, and metal, among others. These advantages of flexography are expected to drive the low migration inks market in this segment.

Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America are the key low migration inks markets. The market in the Europe region is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022, in terms of both value and volume. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing regulations in this region, especially on the food & beverages industry for packaging and labeling applications. Increasing awareness among end users due to contamination is further driving the demand for low migration inks in Europe and North America.

Low Migration Inks Market

The food & beverages segment accounted for the largest share of the low migration inks market in 2016 and the trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Various regulations for labeling and packaging on the food & beverages industry lead to the requirement of low migration inks. Owing to the regulations, printing manufacturers are now demanding low migration inks. This is expected to drive the market for low migration inks for food & beverages end-use segment.

The high prices of low migration inks over conventional inks act as a restraint for this market. Government regulations for use of inks in packaging and labeling applications for food & beverages and pharmaceuticals in regions such as Europe and North America act as a driver for this market. Sun Chemical Corporation (US), Flint (Luxembourg), hubergroup Deutschland (Germany), Siegwerk Druckfarben (Germany), TOYO INK. (US), Agfa-Gevaert (Belgium), ALTANA (Germany), epple Druckfarben (Germany), and INX International Ink. (US) are the leading companies in the low migration inks market. These companies are expected to account for a significant market share in the near future.
