    Printing Blankets Market Insights

    The printing blankets market is projected to grow at a healthy rate over the next five years to reach US$ 855.6 million in 2024. Organic growth of the offset printing market, expanding the packaging industry, growing advertising industry, and increased focus towards the development of eco-friendly blankets are the major factors, catapulting the growth of printing blankets market.

    Printing blanket is an imperative part of the offset printing process as it is the final point of contact between the printed substrate and press. The main function of the blanket is to transfer the inked image from the plate to the substrate in the most efficient manner. The substrate may vary from paper to aluminum sheet to textile to any other substrates, such as plastics and metals. In early days, blankets were made from pure rubber that gave a much superior quality of image than lithographic plates used at that time, but it had its drawbacks. In the 1930s, the origination of synthetic rubber eliminated the problems inherent from the pure rubber, previously used. Today, the blankets are made by using different synthetic rubbers to increase their resistance. The primary synthetic rubber used today are Buna N, Neoprene, along with NVR (Nitrile Rubber), and EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer Rubber) to increase the durability of the blanket. In order to provide additional strength to the blanket, a backing with either fabric or metal is provided.
