Ink Additives Market Analysis:

Ink additive is a chemical constituent, which is used during the formulation process to improve the ink efficiency. It is a type of surfactant, which strengthens the ink's printability. It is developed essentially by solvent-borne innovations. It is used for the benefit of lowering the interfacial tension of the ink, enhancing the latitude ink ability and press effectiveness. It is manufactured using slip/rub materials, dispersing & wetting agents, foam control additives, and rheology modifiers. In addition, it includes agents that boost its viscosity, for instance, driers are used to immediately dry up the inks. It finds its use broadly in the applications for printing & publication and packaging industries. Superior properties of ink additive such as its cost-effective nature, water resistance, adherence on printing substrate, and high stability boost its demand, globally. 

Key drivers of global ink additives market

The development of the e-commerce sector boosts the need for corrugated boxes, which, in turn, fuels the demand for ink additives, thereby driving the growth of the global market. In addition, packaging is an effective advertising component, which influences the purchasing decision of consumers. The packaging industry serves as a major consumer of printing inks. Thus, increase in demand for inks in the global packaging industry is projected to boost the global market for ink additives during the projected timeframe. The expansion of the food & beverage industry and increase in demand for packaging applications in the medical industry are expected to fuel demand for ink additives in the coming years.

Market scenario: opportunities and challenges

Ink additive market players work closely with printing ink producers to comprehend the latter's specific needs and to produce printing inks accordingly. Such alliances can assist ink manufacturers to introduce printing inks required for specific printing processes such as digital printing; gravure; flexography; lithography; and applications such as commercial prints, publishing, and packaging. Developers of ink additives are expected to benefit notably by establishing close relationships with the manufacturers of printing inks and delivering personalized ink additives, which, in turn, contributes toward the growth of the global market. However, the concerns regarding substance toxicity and the deviation of printing to digital media are anticipated to hinder the market growth.

COVID-19 scenario analysis

Owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global ink additives market is expected to witness a slowdown during the next couple of years Governments of various countries have implemented lockdown, which has led to shutdown of factories in scores of cities and provinces across the world, thus leading to predictions of a sharp slowdown in the output from commercial to printing sector. In addition, decline in packaging industry is one of the key factors that is likely to negatively impact the growth of market. Moreover, companies are dealing with missing sales and disrupted supply chains as production activities are shutdown.
