Global Flexo Inks Market To Reach $9.32 Billion


The global flexographic printing inks market is ex- pected to rise from $7.13 billion in 2015 to $9.32 bil- lion by 2020, according to a new report from Transparency Market Research. By product, the water-based ink segment is expected to lead and ac- count for 48.2 percent of the market by 2020, even though there will be a decline in its market by 1.4 percent.The decrease in the market share can be at- tributed to the growing demand for products that have lesser volatile organic compounds (VOC) con- tent. By geography, Asia Pacific led in the past and is expected to continue to do so in the coming years. Asia Pacific is the expected to account for 39.7 per- cent of the global flexographic printing inks market by 2020. On the basis of application, the packaging segment is expected to account for 85.9 percent of the market by 2020. Expansion of the food and beverages industry and the increased demand for flexible packaging in the healthcare industry are two major factors, which are anticipated to boost the demand for flexographic printing inks in the coming years. Additionally, an in- crease in the consumer preference for aesthetic and light weight flexible packaging is expected to propel the demand for flexible packaging. This, in turn, is further expected to augment the flexographic print- ing inks market in the coming years. Gravure Printing Inks Market To Reach $2.6 Billion The market for gravure printing inks has been gain- ing increased momentum across the globe on ac- count of the high-quality image reproduction and low per-unit costs offered by gravure printing. The global gravure printing ink market was valued at US$ 1.8 Billion in 2015 and is projected to reach $2.6 bil- lion by 2024, at a CAGR of 3.98 percent from 2016 to 2024, according to a new report from Transparency Market Research. In terms of volume the gravure printing ink market is expected to reach 928 kilo tons by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 3.4 percent between 2016 and 2024. The gravure printing ink industry, according to the report, is witnessing numerous challenges in several applications owing to rising demand for flexographic printing ink.The demand for flexographic inks in sev- eral countries of North America and Europe has prominently increased recently, negatively impacting the gravure ink industry in such regions.
