Ink Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Ink Manufacturing in the US

While demand for newspaper, magazine and book publishing has suffered, Ink Manufacturing industry demand has taken a hit. As a result, IBISWorld expects that industry revenue will decline over the five years to 2017. Over the five years to 2022, the industry will continue to experience growing competition from digital media. The rising popularity of mobile computers, tablets and e-readers will offer consumers convenient, cost-effective and paperless methods of accessing news. Declining demand for ink used in print publishing will therefore cause industry revenue to contract over the five years to 2022.

Companies in this industry manufacture inkjet cartridges and printing and inkjet inks, including lithographic, flexographic, gravure and letterpress inks. These products are sold to commercial printers, newspaper and magazine printers, office supplies wholesalers and screen printers. This industry does not include operators that manufacture writing, drawing and stamping ink, nor toner cartridges for photocopiers, fax machines and computer printers.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
