Printing Inks

As Quoted In Graphic Arts Online

US printing ink demand will reach $4.8 billion in 2013, supported by shifts toward more environmentally friendly ink formulations and digital inks. Among raw materials, additives and colorants will benefit from demand for better performing printing inks with brighter colors. Packaging will remain the largest and fastest-growing market.

This study analyzes the two billion pound US printing ink industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by raw material (e.g., vehicles, colorants, additives), ink type (e.g., lithographic, flexographic, gravure, digital, letterpress) and market (e.g., packaging, commercial printing, publication).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 43 industry players, including Sun Chemical, Flint Group and INX International.
