Global Metallic Printing Inks Market Insight 2022-01-20 Comments

The Metallic Printing Inks is forecast to fast increase over the next four years.According to the WK-chem Research “Global Metallic Printing Inks Professional Survey Report 2022, Forecast to 2027”, Metallic printing ink is a type of ink containing metallic particles.Metallic printing inks offer superior brilliance, hiding power, and performance for all printing systems. After printing, when the metallic ink is left to dry, the metallic particles rise to the surface, reflecting light and creating a metallic sheen.The growth of the market of metallic printing inks is expected to be driven by the high demand from the packaging industry.The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the 2022-2027 period is projected to be 5.4% base on WK-chem Research regression analysis model.

Analysts’ Viewpoint:

“It is recommended that manufacturers reduce their environmental pollution and strengthen the protection of production workers without affecting normal production and product quality. Therefore, the emergence of new production technologies will bring a broad market to new entrants.” Said Jerry, Senior analyst, Chemical industry Market Research Center in WK-chem Research.

Market insight:

The process of producing metallic printing inks, the prime solvent utilized is metal. However, the inks may also contain various co-solvents. These co-solvents are used to decrease the time and heat required for curing ink film on fabric. Metal printing inks are popular due to its color, flow behavior, good surface appearance, performance, and gloss. All these features are fueling growth in the global metallic printing inks market. Along with this, metallic printing ink products have lower inflammability ratings and easier to clean, thanks to the rapid advancements in technology. Furthermore, soaring demand for unique printing inks and rapid growth in flexible packaging are also the major factors contributing demand in the global metallic printing inks market. Rapid use of metallic printing inks helps in reducing the amount of hazardous waste. Therefore, growing environment and safety issues is also providing major driver to the growth of the global metallic printing inks market in the forecast period. Metallic Printing inks are used in the e-commerce packaging for printing. The growth in the e-commerce industry will subsequently lead to a growth in demand for metallic printing inks. In the global scenario, e-commerce is a largely preferred retail format especially among the young shoppers who are inclined towards online shopping through their smartphones. E-commerce and m-commerce have witnessed a rapid proliferation across the globe, and this has augmented the need for e-commerce packaging.

Metallic Printing Inks used in industrial printing, affect the environment in various ways. Vent fumes are fumes released by the inks into the atmosphere during printing. These fumes can be harmful when inhaled. Metallic Printing inks create problems after they are discarded. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration provides guidelines for worker safety in the print industry, such as wearing protective gloves and masks when handling potentially harmful chemicals. Environmental regulation falls to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which sets pollution level standards for the chemicals used to print. Metallic printing inks are used in the commercial industry contain VOC’s in varying amounts depending on the drying and printing process, substrate and end-use requirements. The regulations of using printing ink will hamper the growth of the metallic printing inks market in the forecast period.Metallic printing inks take considerably large amount of time to be cured when compared with non-water based printing inks. The metallic printing inks printed on a surface, certain temperature must be reached and held to completely dry the solvent used for printing. Though the printer can print the desired image quality and image onto a wide range of substrates, they cannot be done simultaneously, reducing the speed of the printer. This creates an obstacle to used metallic printing inks, thereby restraining the growth of the market.

Segmentation of Metallic Printing Inks Market:

Based on the type, the market is Copper, Aluminum, Bronze and Others.Copper segment held the largest share in the metallic printing inks market. Copper Inks are suitable for printing in flexible electronics. Its properties such as oxidation free, and rapid self-sintering in air environment makes it prominent product type. Nano Copper particles, make it possible to print in high conductivity, low-cost printed electronics, using standard printing equipment on a range of substrates. Copper inks are fully compostable, minimizing the ecological footprint for sustainable printed green circuits. It enables high precision additive screen printing of conductive patterns on a range of substrates including paper, fabrics, PET, PI and HJT PV cells. Copper ink has benefits of easy, high throughput, economical, fabrication of single- and double-sided flexible electronics. It is based on proprietary nano copper fabrication processes that yield substantial ink cost reductions relative to alternative nano-Copper particle vendors.Based on application, the market is Packaging, Banner and Signs, Apparels, Posters, Cosmetics, Printed Electronics, and Others. Packaging sector has been the primary market for metallic printing inks. The growth is augmented due to the high demand for food packaging and the growing trend of digital data printing on food packages to communicate the shelf-life, composition, and nutritional value of the product. Economic growth in emerging economies has emerged as a boon to the food and beverage industry. Processed foods, packaged foods, and ready-to-go meals are becoming common to serve the changing lifestyle in emerging economies.Demand for special foods such as gluten free foods and lactose free foods are revving up growth of the food and beverage industry. Diabetic food, food for lactating mothers, and iron fortified food are some other special foods that serves to boost the food and beverage industry.This factor directly propels the packaging sector, thus it will drive the growth of the metallic ink market in the forecast period.

Metallic Printing Inks Market: Regional Analysis

In terms of geography, the global Metallic Printing Inks market has been segmented into: North America, South America, Europe, APAC, and RoW. APAC dominates the metallic printing inks market with a share followed by North America and Europe. The economy of APAC is mainly influenced by the economic dynamics of countries such as China and India, but with growing foreign direct investment for economic development of South East Asia, the current scenario is changing. Countries in South East Asia are witnessing high growth in the textile industry. The metallic printing inks are used in the textiles printing. Textile printing is the method of applying color to fabric to make decorative patterns in a uniform way. Textiles are utilized in different areas of household applications, some of which include bedding, kitchen products, upholstery, and towels and others. The factors such as high reliability, uninterrupted printing, cost-effective production, and design versatility contribute positively to the textiles industry. The abundance of natural fibers, especially cotton, in China, India, and the United States, is contributing significantly to the growth of the global textile sector. The demand for textiles is growing, on account of the strong demand base of developed countries coupled with the strengthening demand from developing economies. Ongoing advancements in fashion and apparel industry coupled with changing demographics and consumer demand are anticipated to boost the textile market over the forecast period.
