Global Chemical Indicator Inks Market: Snapshot

Chemical indicator inks are witnessing high demand as their demand has increased across various sterilization monitoring processes. The market is anticipated to grow at an exponential speed due to high product demands in the surgical instrument market. Another factor contributing to the market growth is that these inks can be used on various bases owing to their significant properties such as improved color and shine. Owing to the rising mortality and fatality rate, eradication of nosocomial infections has become a challenge all over the world. The infection also affects the expenses incurred by patients over extended hospitalization and antimicrobial treatment. The flexographic printing segment has the leading shares in chemical indicator inks market. The above technique is mainly used due to its property to be able to be printed on several types of bases, for instance, cardboard, paper, and many others and also being cost-effective printing solution.

As water-based inks holds low content volatile organic compound and has nature-friendly properties it adds to the rising demand in coming times. The rising trend of using tags and labels reading sterilized in the healthcare sector has also been pushing up demand in the market. From the region perspective, Asia-Pacific is likely to flourish due to increased expenditure healthcare. This factor is responsible for a substantial rise in the expenses incurred for treating the people over 60 years of age, which in turn will contribute in the surge of the ink indicator market on a global scale. Various key players are working to develop different kinds of products to gain an edge over their competitors in the market.

Global Chemical Indicator Inks Market: Overview

Chemical indicator inks find application in different sterilization monitoring processes because of their ability to switch colors when exposed to certain sterilants at set temperatures. The change in color bears proof of the fact that the sterilization process is over and that the instruments are safe to be used for the next surgery.

Global Chemical Indicator Inks Market: Key Trends

One factor majorly boosting the global market for chemical indicator inks is the rising instances of nosocomial infections and stringent norms pertaining to sterilization in the healthcare sector. The rising trend of using tags and labels reading sterilized in the healthcare sector has also been pushing up demand in the market. These products are mainly used in the sterilization monitoring process, in which they change permanently on exposure to predefined temperatures and specific sterilants.

Increasing product use in the in the production of IV and blood containers and pouches to avoid infection among patients is expected to stoke demand in the years ahead. Additionally, several rules in France, the U.S., and the U.K. for sterilization is expected to boost the use of product in the years ahead. Further bolstering the market is the emergence of better technologies such as steam, hydrogen peroxide and plasma, and ethylene oxide. For example, steam sterilization holds a substantial global share because of its widespread medical applications as the process does not result in any toxic content.

Global Chemical Indicator Inks Market: Market Potential

Among the different sterilization processes used, steam has spelt maximum opportunity so far in the global chemical indicator inks market on account of not having any toxic content that makes the process highly safe for surgical instruments. Further, the process is preferred for all critical and semi-critical items that are heat and moisture resistant. Going forward, however, ethylene oxide is predicted to gain maximum market share because of its ability to sterilize medical and pharmaceutical products such as electronic components, plastic containers, and plastic packaging that cannot withstand the high temperature steam sterilization such as plastic packaging, or plastic containers.

Depending upon applications, sterile bags hold maximum opportunity in the global chemical indicator inks market on account of their widespread use in the medical industry. On account of being transparent and perforated, these bags improve the ease of penetration of the sterilant for complete sterilization. Going forward, tapes will outpace all other segments in terms of growth rate.

Global Chemical Indicator Inks Market: Regional Outlook

Geographically, the key segments of the global market for chemical indicator inks are North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. North America, among them, is a key region.
