Report Digest


UV Curing System Market Introduction

UV curing is the process by which ultraviolet light is used to initiate photochemical reaction, generating a cross-linked network of polymers. UV curing system is the cross chemical reaction when UV ink or varnish is used on the object and when it passes and gets cured when it passes through UV light. The system is used to cure adhesives, polymer resins, coatings, and other UV curable resin products. UV curing systems uses spot, focused, and flood beam light in order to provide ultraviolet illumination. These systems are also available in various configurations.

UV curing systems are widely adopted across industries owing to the various benefits such as rising adoption of UV LEDs, reduced power consumption, low operation and maintenance cost, and easy disposal.

UV Curing System Market Dynamics

Increasing adoption of UV LED Curing Technology for Printing Driving UV Curing System Market Growth

UV LED curing is finding wide application in the graphics application, especially in digital inject printing, sheetfed offset printing, screen printing, and flexo printing. Rapid growth can be witnessed in these areas, with the fastest growth in sheetfed offset printing. Companies are also offering LED cured UV inks for sheetfed offset printing for sustainable print. In recent years, the advancement and development in LED manufacturing technology along with compatible inks has led to energy efficient, long life, and low heat LED UV curing systems. This has resulted in wide adoption of UV printing with LED UV curing.

Sheetfed commercial printing is shifting to UV LED because of improved print quality, productivity, and reduction in energy consumption. Meanwhile, in response to growing demand for high speed printing, manufacturers in the UV curing systems market are focusing on developing high quality UV LED curing system.

UV Curing System Gaining Traction in the Automotive Industry

UV curing systems are gaining traction in the automotive industry with extensive use of UV light curing system for assembling and bonding application in the automotive sector. In recent years, the use of medium pressure UV curing lamps has increased in the automotive industry. Moreover, UV curable coating is largely being applied to alloy wheels in order to protect the finish from ice, water, salt, light and scratch damage. These coatings on alloy wheels are exposed to medium pressure UV curing lamps for quick drying. Moreover, automotive manufacturers continue to focus on UV curable coatings for exterior paint finish. This has led to the development of robotic UV curing for automotive exteriors as technically viable and cost-effective alternative for UV curing system in the automotive industry.

Limited Depth of Curing to Restrain the Growth in the UV Curing System Market

One of the primary limitations of the UV curing system is the limited penetration depth of light which depends on the spectral and wavelength distribution and does not exceed a few millimeters. The light induced cure is also limited to coatings, inks, and adhesives. Meanwhile, different UV adhesives have been designed with different cure wavelength and speed. Hence, based on the nature of UV curable adhesive the depth of cure is limited, this is leading to the manufacturers selecting different UV cure products with improved depth of cure.

Moreover, type of UV light also affects the depth of cure. This is resulting in the use of lamp system with higher intensity peaks nearly 385 nm or greater, thus allowing UV light to cure adhesives in thick sections and also cure material more uniformly.
