In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the demand for water-based ink technology as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global printing inks market:
Demand for water-based ink technology favoring market growth
Water-based printing inks perform well in printing applications involving textiles, cardboard, and paper and are increasingly preferred. Water-based printing inks are also used for printing plastics and foils. These printing inks can easily recycle the substrate. Moreover, the advances in the water-based ink technology that includes the development of novel additives along with water-based printing processes are expected to drive the demand for printing inks. For example, surface preparation techniques, such as the corona treatment, are majorly used in a wide range of materials, including foils and plastics.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for paints, coatings, and pigments, “The players in the market are focusing on switching their operations from the solvent-borne printing inks to water-based or waterborne printing due to the eco-friendly properties of water-based printing inks. These inks are also increasingly preferred as they improve the flow of inks. As they are manufactured using water-dispersible polymers, they benefit printers and reduce the overall cost by enhancing the ink-flow.”
