Overview of the global ink solvent market
Technavio’s market study identifies the growing demand for printing inks from the packaging industry to be one of the primary growth factors for the ink solvent market. Ink solvent is the primary raw materials used to produce ink solvent-based printing inks that are used in various applications such as packaging, publishing, and business communication. High consumption of food and beverages, and electronics in the developing regions contributes to growth of flexible packaging and ink solvents. Additionally, the trend of easy to cook meals and packaged products further supports the growth. Our market research analysts estimate that this market will grow steadily at a CAGR of about 5% by 2021.
Packaging market is increasingly witnessing the development of sustainable products using eco-friendly inks and new printing technologies. Additionally, the governments in the developing countries are adopting stringent regulations and policies to regulate the content of the inks. For instance, Zanasi introduced 511 BIO, the new biodegradable inks for industrial inkjet printers. This solvent was developed with 100% vegetal derived solvents, and it does not contain any volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and was approved by EPA. According to this market research report, the growing demand for bio-degradable solvents will be one of the key trends that will contribute to the growth of the ink solvent market during the next few years.
