Flexographic Ink Market by Technology (Water, Solvent, and UV Based), Resin Type (Nitrocellulose, Polyamides, Polyurethane, Acrylic), Application (Corrugated Cardboards, Flexible Packaging, Tags & Labels, Folding Cartons) - Global Forecast to 2022
“The flexographic ink market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.89% during the forecast period”
The flexographic ink market is projected to reach USD 4.16 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.89% between 2017 and 2022. The market growth in recent years can be attributed to the increased demand for flexographic ink in the Asia-Pacific region. The flexographic ink market is largely driven by the rising retail sales in the packaging industry. The increasing demand for printed products, such as labels, bags/cartons, direct mail, and catalogs, is expected to further fuel the overall demand of flexographic ink during the forecast period.
Manufacturers are engaged in business expansion to cater to the increased demand for flexographic ink. However, formulation and implementation of new regulations, such as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) and various other directives to control solvent emissions are affecting the growth of the flexographic ink market across the globe. The Euro Zone crisis of 2012 has also affected the growth of the flexographic ink market globally, as several companies reduced their production as part of their cost-cutting strategy to survive in the market.
“The tags & labels segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022”
By application, the tags & labels segment is projected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period. Demand for tags & labels is driven by beverages, clothing, and other consumer goods products. Several international brand owners are focusing on promoting their brands through improved label graphics as well as the manufacturing multi-versioned labels incorporating the local languages. Flexographic ink has gained popularity in this segment as it helps in differentiating products from others, presenting information to consumers, and enhancing product visibility.
“Europe was the largest flexographic ink market in 2016”
Europe was the largest market for flexographic ink, having accounted for the maximum market share, in terms of volume, in 2016. Key countries in the European market include Germany, the U.K., France, Italy, Turkey, Spain, and Russia. The increase in demand for packaging in the region is mainly backed by the expansion of the food & beverage, healthcare, and consumer goods industries. The European Commission has also necessitated the European Committee for Standardization to develop specific standards for environmentally friendly inks, which has resulted in the increased demand for flexographic ink.
