Ceramic Inks - Global Market Outlook (2017-2026)
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Ceramic Inks Market is accounted for $1.85 billion in 2017 and expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.8% to reach $3.98 billion by 2026. Growing construction industry, surge for decorated and customized ceramic tiles, offers high resistance to uv, scratches, and weather and growth in digital printing technology are pushing the market growth. Technological advancements in construction & infrastructure industry and automotive glasses are further expected to augment market growth. However, availability of substitutes and volatility in raw materials prices hamper the market growth. Challenges faced by the industry are high costs involved in print setup and sample designing in analog printing.
Based on Technology, Digital Printing Technology was introduced to the glass printing industry. Decorative glass has traditionally been considered to be any glass with a basic dot or line pattern or spandrel glass. Technologies able to control colloidal suspensions and to design hybrid organic-inorganic composites are rapidly gaining interest and application potential. Reduction of cost and impact on health and the environment have been the driving force for innovation in pigment manufacturing. Different classes of colorants for digital ink have been developed like organometallic complexes, micronized pigments, colloidal metals, nanopigments and reactive sol precursors for in situ synthesis. An ink-jet printing system for porcelain tiles has many advantages compared with a conventional printing system. Ink-jet printing systems have been commercialized and are rapidly spreading to ceramics-leading countries such as Spain, Italy, China and Japan.
Based on Ink, Decorative Inks are used in entire production of DOD-IJP inks for ceramic tile decoration. Current industrial inks used to decorate ceramic tiles plot into the field of printable fluids in both models, irrespectively of printhead type, though more or less close to the limit Oh = 1. To produce vibrant colour, ceramic inks contain large, insoluble particles of pigment, packed tightly together and held in suspension which makes the ink very viscous and liable to settle, causing sedimentation. The impact of digital printing with ceramic inks on decorative glass is being used widely across the glass and architectural worlds. However, due to environmental constraints, water-based systems are envisaged as a green alternative for ceramic tiles decoration. Increases also reflect a trend toward customization and shorter run lengths in applications. Water-based and energy curable inks will benefit from greater concern for environmental issues.
Asia Pacific is the fastest growing market followed by Middle East & Africa, North America, Europe, and Latin America. This is due to ongoing building and construction activities as well as automotive manufacturing, particularly in China, India and South East Asian countries. Europe is expected to witness sluggish growth rates on account of economic crisis.
