Ink Solvents Market by Chemistry Type (Alcohols, Acetates, Hydrocarbons), by Product Type (Conventional, Green & Bio-based), by Process (Flexographic, Gravure, & Others) & by Application (Packaging, Corrugated, Publication) - Global Forecasts to 2019

The report covers the global ink solvents market and further segments the market on the basis of chemistry type, product type, process, application, and region. The market data for these types is given with respect to volume (kilotons) and value ($million). The global market value of ink solvents is estimated to be around $827.24 million in 2014 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of more than 5% between 2014 and 2019. The data mentioned in the report are based on the global demand for ink solvents.

The total market for ink solvents has been analyzed based on the Porter’s five forces model. This gives an idea about the current proceedings in the industry at commercial level. The study provides the value chain analysis with respect to the technology providers, ink solvent producers, printing ink manufacturers, and end-user industries. The value chain describes the key contributors to the ink solvents market at different stages from product development to end use. It represents the top players which are contributing to the global ink solvents industry.

The impact of different market factors, such as drivers, restraints, and opportunities is also illustrated in the report. This gives an idea about the key drivers such as government regulatory support, public awareness, application growth for ink solvents in Asia-Pacific especially in China and India where there is robust growth in the food and beverage packaging followed by online retail industry. The economic slowdown in Europe and U.S. also affected the economy of other developed countries and the price volatility of the printing inks in the past made the market more strained for the printing ink applications.

The global ink solvents market is also classified based on different applications. The important applications include flexible packaging, corrugated cardboard and folding cartons, publication, and others. The corrugated cardboard and folding cartons application is expected to show moderate growth in the future due to the advancements in the trend of online shopping.

The key companies in this market are BASF SE (Germany), Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Eastman Chemical Company (U.S.),Arkema S.A. (France), Ashland Inc. (U.S.), Celanese Corporation (U.S.), Evonik Industries AG (Germany), Ineos AG (Switzerland), Omnova Solutions (U.S.), Royal Dutch Shell (Netherlands), Solvay AG (Belgium), and Vertec Biosolvents Inc. (U.S.). These companies are consistently focusing on expanding their production capacity to achieve a competitive advantage and thereby serving the customers more effectively. Merger and acquisitions were the most preferred strategies by the top players in 2013 that were driving the demand of ink solvents. Their strategy to capture the untapped market in developing economies includes agreements, collaborations, and joint ventures.

The Asia-Pacific region emerged to be the driving factor for this market, contributing for about 48% of the global demand in terms of market share in 2013. China is the leading country in the consumption of ink solvents, due to the increased demand of the printing inks from the packaging industry. The important emerging economies such as Brazil, India, Russia, and others are further lined up for a brighter future in this market.

The report also presents a competitive landscape covering different strategies and developments such as mergers & acquisitions, investments and expansions, new product launches, agreements and collaborations undertaken by the leading ink solvent companies in the past few years. Furthermore, different ink solvents market participants are also profiled in the report.
