Ceramic Inks Market Trends

  • Growing demand for water-based ceramic inks drives the market growth

Market CAGR for ceramic inks is being driven by the growing demand for water-based ceramic inks. The inks now utilized for digital printing are created using organic solvents, which are reasonably effective at assuring the dispersion stability of hydrophobic ceramic pigments. However, due to laws on the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) inherent in organic solvents, as well as the shortened lifespan of inkjet heads caused by these solvents, there is an increasing interest in environmentally friendly inkjet printing materials that use water-based inks. A nano-sized ceramic pigment made of CoAl204 can be utilized to create water-based, ecologically friendly ink with good jetting and dispersion stability. Water-based inks contain a significant amount of inorganic material and negligible organic material; as a result of the decreased content of organic substances in the composition and the typology of these chemical substances, they emit a small number of volatile substances in the atmosphere when fired in the ceramic oven, making them practically odorless.

Because of their superior performance in industrial applications, these printers can now be used commercially in production contexts. Inkjet printing is quickly gaining over as the most popular technique for adorning ceramic tiles due to the widespread availability of digital printers. The potential of these printers for decorating tile and ceramic goods has emerged in the last ten years. Both printed design and ink formation have advanced significantly. Because of its numerous advantages, such as easier material handling, limitless decoration options, expanded and non-flat surfaces, and others, inkjet decoration has become the most common method of decoration.

Inkjet printing is a non-contact decorative approach that reduces mechanical stress risks associated with unfired tiles. Initially, the design and advertising divisions printed on ceramic objects with a portable inkjet printing machine. In recent years, this approach has been expertly used to produce high-caliber market trends. Liquid ceramic ink is sprayed onto the relevant components using piezoelectric nozzles, and the organic material is then dried and discharged before being cooked at a different temperature. The pigment and solvent separate the optical print ink into two portions.

The increasing demand for ceramic tiles in the building industry is another factor driving the growth of the Ceramic Ink Market. Because of its durability, low maintenance, and aesthetic appeal, ceramic tiles are commonly employed in the construction of residential and commercial buildings. Ceramic tile demand is likely to rise in the coming years as the construction industry expands, particularly in rising economies such as India, China, and Brazil. As a result, demand for ceramic inks, which are used to print designs and patterns on ceramic tiles, is likely to rise.

Ceramic Inks Market Segment Insights

Ceramic Inks Printing Technology Insights

The Ceramic Inks Market segmentation, based on printing technology includes digital, and analog. The digital category is expected to have the most substantial and fastest-growing increase. According to the ceramic ink market, digital printing technology will eventually entirely replace analog printing. Digital printing is rapidly gaining traction in large markets such as China, Brazil, and India. If this scenario is correct, digital printing technology will control more than 95% of the market for ceramic decorative applications. Ceramic decorators use digital printing to print in small batches, reduce inventory costs, and successfully suit the ceramic inks market's fluctuating needs.
