Global Flexographic Printing Inks Market: Snapshot

The growing demand of direct relief printing processes for packing materials has largely led to the evolution of flexographic printing inks market. Popular types of packaging solutions that use flexographic printing inks include cardboard boxes, corrugated cardboard, plastic bags, food packaging, catalogues, and newspapers. Flexographic printing is based on conventional letterpress printing process. It has gained popularity for printing a large number of packing materials, since the inks used in the process is suitable for a variety of substrates. The high-quality printing method uses flexographic inks, which can be primarily of three types: water based, solvent-based and UV curable. The suitability of any particular type is dependent on the choice of the substrates. The accelerated demand for environmental-friendly, pollution-free, and low-cost printing is providing a robust fillip to the adoption of flexographic printing inks.

Although, solvent-based flexographic printing inks have extensive applications driven by the high rate of printing and superior quality they offer, in recent years, the adoption of water-based inks has picked up pace. Intensifying regulatory norms about the emission of volatile organic compounds in many solvent-based inks has triggered the demand for alternatives that are safe to users in terms of flammability and toxicity. For instance, pollution prevention regulations by agencies such as the United States Environmental and Hazardous waste regulations (RCRA) by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has catalyzed the adoption of water-based inks as suitable candidates in developed nations. These inks substantially limit the emission of volatile organic compounds and are safe to users in terms of flammability and toxicity. While water-based flexographic inks were naturally found suitable for various paper and paperboard substrates, their application on films and foils offered some difficulty and consequently required special treatments. This may be a key factor hindering its uptake in several developing economies in the forthcoming years.
