    Market Insights

    "The global ink additives market is likely to grow at a promising CAGR of 5.2% in the long run to reach US$ 2.0 billion by 2028."

    Ink additives in the form of surfactants are utilized to improve the ink's capacity to print. Basically, technologies based on solvents are used to create it. It works well to lower the ink's surface tension, which improves press performance and latitude ink capacity. It consists of substances that increase the ink's viscosity as well as quick-drying driers. It is frequently used in applications related to printing and publishing, packaging, and other fields.

    This development is linked to rising demand from Asia Pacific, particularly from India, China, and Southeast Asian nations, as well as rising applications and technological advancements. Additionally, it is anticipated that the expansion of e-commerce in APAC will boost demand for corrugated boxes and boards, propelling the market for ink additives.

    By Type

    "The dispersing & wetting agents segment accounted for the largest market share."

    Based on the type, the ink additives market is segmented into rheology modifiers, dispersing & wetting agents, foam control additives, slip/rub materials, driers, and others. Dispersing & Wetting agents are expected to remain the largest type in the market during the forecast period. Dispersants aid in stabilizing the pigment suspension in varnish. They aid in the liquid phase's dispersion of tiny solid particles. Wetting agents, on the other hand, lower surface tension and enhance pigment dispersion. It is challenging to properly moisten the surface of substrates due to high surface tension. To achieve high print quality, the substrate must be thoroughly wetted. When the surface is sufficiently wet, the liquid distributes across the substrates evenly without producing droplets.

    Technology Trends

    "The solvent-based segment accounted for the largest market share."

    Based on the technology type, the market is segmented into solvent-based, water-based, UV-cured, and others. Solvent-Based is expected to remain the dominant as well as the fastest-growing technology in the market during the forecast period due to its low cost. Solvent-Based technology is employed all over the world. Due to their high volatility, the solvents used during the procedure evaporate quickly, posing a small issue with the ink's migration on the substrate. For gravure and flexographic processes, major manufacturing companies are concentrating on all solvent-based goods. In developed nations with higher regulatory requirements, like the US and Germany, water-based technology is favored over solvent-based technology. In countries with developing economies like China, India, Brazil, and Southeast Asian nations, solvent-based ink additives are still quite prevalent. In these areas, the lack of tougher laws is advantageous for this technology.

    Process Trends

    "The lithographic segment accounted for the largest market share."

    Based on the process type, the ink additives market is segmented into lithographic, gravure, flexographic, digital, and others. Lithographic is expected to remain the most preferred process in the market during the forecast period. Offset inks are another name for them. The picture is produced in this printing procedure on a flat metal surface, which is followed by rolling it on rubber and then placing it on the substrate. This printing method is distinguished from gravure and letterpress printing by its smooth print and absence of any incorrect impressions or rings. Books, advertisements, catalogs, cards, posters, direct mail inserts, packaging, coupons, and artwork are all printed using lithography. In uses other than food, this technology is mostly used. The industry is anticipated to gain from the growing demand for paper boards and corrugated boxes for online purchases.

    Application Trends

    "The packaging segment accounted for the largest market share."

    Based on the application type, the market is segmented into packaging, publishing, and commercial printing. Packaging is expected to remain the dominant as well as the fastest-growing application in the market during the forecast period. The need for higher-tech packaging is driven by rising disposable income as well as rising consumption and demand for consumer products in emerging nations, where packaging sales are predicted to increase. Due to its practicality and simple handling methods, flexible packaging is becoming more and more popular. The food and beverage sector, as well as the packaging for cigarettes, both use flexible packaging. The demand for corrugated boxes and boards is anticipated to increase along with the popularity of online shopping, which will also have a favorable impact on the demand for ink additives.

    Regional Insights

    "Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest market share."

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market for ink additives during the forecast period. The ink additives market in Asia Pacific is being driven by the rising demand for flexographic printing inks in the packaging industry for corrugated containers, flexible packaging, folding cartons, labels & tags, and metal cans.
