The ink resins market is projected to grow from USD 3.3 billion in 2021 to USD 3.8 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 3.4% between 2021 and 2026. Increasing environmental protection standards for the printing ink industry, growth of packaging and energy curable inks industries, increasing demand for UV-cured inks, and new resin technologies are the key factors contributing to the growth of the ink resins market. However, increasing demand for e-books, stringent environmental regulations against VOC, and price rise of ink resin feedstock hinder market growth. The major opportunities in the ink resins market are in emerging markets such as India, China, Brazil, and Mexico. The printing industry in Asia Pacific, South America, and the Middle East & Africa is expected to have a good growth rate during the forecast period. Simultaneously, increasing environmental protection standards are expected to have a positive demand due to their environmental benefits.
