Specialty Ink Market Overview

Ink is an aqueous solution of color pigments or dyes. It is majorly used to color a surface to impart a design, or draw a text on it. In market the ink is available in the form of thick paste or liquid. The thicker inks are used extensively in letterpress and lithographic printing, while the thinner form is applied on the substrate by using a pen, brush or quill. Specialty inks serve the special purposes other than their normal forms do. Based on the special uses these inks are modified into metallic, light fast, fluorescent, security, carbonizing, and invisible inks, among others such as penetrating ink, magic ink, and polybond ink. Their applications can be found in high tech security printings, cheque printing, fluorescent that catches attention, metallic shade inks, and carbon copy paper printing ink among others.

As per our analysis, increasing demand for the specialty printing ink from emerging scope of applications such as protection from counterfeit and fake branding is the primary factor driving growth of the market. The global printing ink market for packaging is estimated to grow at CAGR of 6% due to rising global demand for label packaging providing nutritive and product information. Apart from this, the color, design and appearance of the ink is a critical factor when it comes to attracting the customers. This is anticipated to give boost to the Specialty Ink Market in the coming years. Moreover, with increasing per capita income and standard of living of the people, particularly in the developing countries, the consumer sentiment is shifting toward the use of packaged food, beverages and other retail products. This development in the major end users of specialty ink is projected to fuel its demand during the years to follow. Furthermore, the leading players are investing substantial share of their annual revenue in R&D for development of innovative ink products to serve the safety and security of confidential documents products. Additionally, advancements in the field of 3D printing, and arrival of new technologies such as inkjet, offset and others is expected boost growth of the market during the review period. However, the fluctuations in the raw material prices, cost intensive nature of new technologies and shift from traditional to digital market are the major bottlenecks operating in the market, which is anticipated to restrain growth of the market during the review period.
