Analysis on the price trend of Chinese ink market in the next few years

Abstract: now ink manufacturers have sent a signal that due to the sharp rise in raw material costs, they will further increase the costs of production and processing. This is mainly due to the global shortage of a series of chemical agents, which are key raw materials in the production of ink. Up to now, the rising price of crude oil and petrochemical derivatives is the main reason for the rise in ink prices. But even if the oil price falls, because the ink industry is hit by the shortage of chemical raw materials, especially nitrocellulose, acrylic acid, acetic acid, titanium dioxide and other raw materials, the ink price will still only rise. More wonderful information

[CPP114] news: now ink manufacturers have sent a signal that due to the sharp rise in raw material costs, they will further increase the costs of production and processing. This is mainly due to the global shortage of a series of chemical agents, which are key raw materials in the production of ink. Up to now, the rising price of crude oil and petrochemical derivatives is the main reason for the rise in ink prices. But even if the oil price falls, because the ink industry is hit by the shortage of chemical raw materials, especially nitrocellulose, acrylic acid, acetic acid, titanium dioxide and other raw materials, the ink price will still only rise

all inks will bear the pressure of high pigment prices caused by the rise in the price of petroleum derivatives. Thermosetting inks, cold setting inks and traditional sheet fed inks will be affected by the substantial rise in the price of mineral oil and vegetable oil. However, ink used for packaging and printing, such as solvent based ink, water-based ink, UV curing ink and varnish, may have to bear the pressure of rising raw material prices

with the implementation of the ban on tobacco advertising, cigarette packs have become an important channel for cigarette manufacturers to communicate with smokers. Cigarette manufacturers are paying more and more attention to the design of cigarette packaging, the selection of health warning patterns and the protection of cigarette brand intellectual property rights. These factors have increased the market demand for packaging ink. At the same time, the soaring prices of raw materials such as crude oil and natural gas and the shortage of some key ingredients such as acrylic acid and pigments have also led to the rise in ink prices

development characteristics of ink market in the next few years

eb ink is favored by the majority of users for its advantages of no volatile solvent, no VOC, little harm to the health of operators, small odor, no photoinitiator, direct drying, online operation and so on. Compared with UV ink, EB ink does not need photoinitiator, curing speed is faster, curing is more thorough, and smell is smaller, which further increases the development space of EB ink. Therefore, EB ink will become a practical and economical ink that can be vigorously promoted with the reduction of raw materials and supporting equipment of EB ink and the further maturation of design formula. Now EB ink is growing in flexible packaging printing. The superior performance and high production efficiency of EB ink provide a broader market for it. It is believed that the application scope of EB ink will be further expanded and become an important variety of new environmentally friendly inks in the future. At the end of the experiment,

in 2006, the growth rate of the global passive component market increased to 18% with the increase of downstream demand. In, due to the increase of the base period, the growth rate will return to the previous level, but will also remain above 10%. Thanks to the steady growth of the passive component market, the market demand for ink materials is expected to continue to increase

from the current situation and development of China's ink application industry, publishing and commercial printing industry, packaging printing industry, circuit board manufacturing industry, etc., offset printing ink still occupies a dominant position. The market share is about 45%, the market demand for gravure printing ink tends to be stable on the whole, and the relief printing ink market will decline significantly, but among them, flexographic printing ink shows an upward trend, printing ink shows a steady upward trend, digital printing, Inkjet printing inks will develop rapidly. With the increasing awareness of global environmental protection and diversified demand, water-based inks, UV curing inks, seed holding anti-counterfeiting inks and other products will develop at an amazing speed

1. Offset printing ink

Tianjin Toyo Hangzhou HANGHUA, Taiyuan Gaoshi, Shanghai Peony, Shanghai DLC, Shanghai Silian, Shenzhen Shenzhen and other major enterprises still lead. The momentum of foreign-funded enterprises such as sikebai, flint, Sakata, gukou is not small, coupled with the strong development of Suzhou Toyo, Guangdong Meining, Beijing Shida and other products, will inevitably intensify the competition in the offset printing ink market. In terms of sheet fed offset printing ink, due to the influence of brush machinery and equipment, the manufacturer or experimenter should solve the problem of how to expand the attachment on the existing universal experimental machine so as to realize the cupping experiment. Rosin resin bright and fast drying ink still accounts for a similar amount, and the environment-friendly offset printing ink represented by soybean oil-based modified grass seed oil-based will gradually become more and more popular, The application of anhydrous offset printing inks is on the rise, and the development of UV offset printing inks and hybrid inks is getting better. In terms of rotary inks, petroleum resins and their modified cold set inks will gradually fade out of the market, rosin phenolic resin inks will be extremely active, and the promotion of soybean oil-based inks will take time. Newspaper enterprises' participation in inks may increase, The use of thermosetting rotary offset ink will rise steadily with the development of education. In terms of iron printing ink, the development of Shunde Jinlong ink seems to indicate something. The further shrinkage of the total demand for iron printing ink is a foregone conclusion. But the products will not disappear

2. flexographic printing ink

with the strengthening of the concept of green packaging, flexographic printing, which is good at the application of water-based ink, will follow the development of developed countries and grow rapidly in China. Domestic ink manufacturing enterprises that mainly produce water-based ink, such as Zhaoqing Tianlong, Dongguan Yingke, Zhongshan Yingjie, Foshan Dongfang, etc., are developing rapidly. Looking at the current shuishisheng flexographic printing ink market, The low price of modified rosin based waterborne t ink used for corrugated box printing has affected the profits of enterprises. Acrylic based waterborne ink is compared with others in terms of printing machinery and equipment and printing effect. It seems that there are no other advantages except environmental protection. Although the development and promotion of UV flexographic printing ink are ongoing, it is necessary to have relevant national laws and regulations to truly promote the development of flexographic printing ink market The support of laws and regulations and the introduction of environmental protection requirements

3. Gravure printing ink

gravure printing ink is mainly solvent based ink, and its production process is relatively simple compared with offset printing ink. A few years ago, due to the rapid growth of plastic packaging and looking forward to negotiation and cooperation with customers in the western region, gravure printing ink has also increased significantly. The high-grade tobacco packaging has further stimulated the gravure printing ink market. However, due to the large number of small and medium-sized ink enterprises launched in the past two years, and the involvement of other types of ink manufacturers in the solvent ink market, the competition in this field is very fierce. Although Shanghai DIC, Zhejiang New Oriental, Zhongshan Yeshi, Zhuhai Letong, Shunde Shengchang, etc. are still the leaders, the price war of some products has become white hot, and these large enterprises are overwhelmed. Due to the relevant packaging laws, regulations and policies that limit VOC emissions, traditional gravure inks containing harmful organic solvents such as toluene and butanone will gradually be replaced by alcohol soluble inks. However, the ink system mainly composed of polyamide, nitrocellulose and chlorinated polypropylene resin systems will not be easily changed, and it is not strong for the large tobacco industry of paper gravure printing, which occupies an important position. Under the introduction of sexual laws and regulations, it will take time for the ink to be waterborne in order to achieve UV printing. Therefore, in the short term, whether it is plastic packaging gravure printing or paper gravure printing, benzene free polyurethane resin system ink and alcohol soluble ink will be used as the transition, It is a wise move

4. printing ink

because the wide range of substrates used by printing is unmatched by other printing methods, the market of printing ink is also broad. Some successful ink manufacturers represented by Wuxi Chunguang, Shenzhen Meihua, Zhongshan Zhongyi, etc. are actively looking for their own market space and companies. The special effect of UV ink printing will inevitably occupy a place in packaging. The mass production of various optical discs has also greatly promoted the development of UV printing ink, and European ink manufacturers have also increased their investment in China. In terms of PCB printing ink, the joining of Taiwan funded enterprises has greatly improved the development pace of domestic PCB technology. At present, the ink giant American sun ink has also established a factory in Suzhou I, and the era of PCB ink competition has begun. At the same time, soft PCB printing ink is being paid attention to. In addition, China's printing ink is shortening the technological gap with developed countries in the world

5. inkjet and printing ink technology

the non-contact printing method represented by inkjet and printing technology is achieving results in more and more application fields. The previous ink-jet printing industry is transforming from the previous home and office ink-jet printing to label and barcode printing and CAD. We may be able to adjust some materials that constitute the internal structure of the aircraft and print large format images. From the traditional solvent dye type to the water-based pigment type, 8-color ink-jet printing has been oriented to the market, and the digital proofing based on ink-jet printing equipment is close to the offset printing quality, It has become a key technology to support CTP workflow. It will replace the traditional proofing of offset printing, occupy the printing proofing market, and meet the development trend of digitalization and networking of printing. Inkjet printing will penetrate into a broader market in the near future, injecting new vitality into the modern printing industry. The advantage of UV inkjet ink lies in that it not only has the economic and technical advantages of traditional UV technology, but also has its outstanding advantages in use and operation. Some traditional inkjet manufacturers in China. For example, Zhuhai Baojie and Shenzhen Boya are actively developing new UV inkjet technologies and products. Textile digital ink-jet printing technology has the advantages of high definition of printing pattern, small floor area, no sewage discharge, and can realize single piece and production. It is known as the key technology of textile industrial revolution in the 21st century. Digital ink-jet printing nano pigment ink has come out. The application of digital UV inkjet technology in PCB Printing is more conducive to solving the headache of environmental protection, which is not far away from us. While the traditional ink varieties are developing vigorously, some special inks with small dosage and different application fields are quietly emerging. The manufacturing enterprises of high-tech anti-counterfeiting inks represented by Beida Deli are growing
