A water-based ink can be defined as an ink, which contains either pigment or dyes in a colloidal suspension with water as solvent. Although the main solvent utilized in the process of production of water-based inks is water, the inks may contain other co-solvents to decrease the time and heat necessary to cure ink film on fabric. Water-based inks are more viscosity stable on press as water evaporates slowly. Flow behavior, color, good surface appearance, gloss, and performance are the main factors which influence growth of the water-based inks market. New generation water-based products are easier to clean as compared to solvent counterparts and have lower flammability ratings.
Growth in flexible packaging, rise in demand for printing inks, and increase in environment & safety issues are major factors that drive the growth for water-based inks market. Use of water-based inks reduces amount of hazardous waste. Asia-Pacific is expected to register substantial growth due to increase in demand for environment friendly inks in emerging economies such as China and India. Slow drying & printing speed is the main disadvantage of these inks.
Use of water-based inks is restricted around highly alkaline environments as these inks are soluble in alkaline solutions. Moreover, these inks cannot wet & print smoothly on difficult substrates due to high surface energy of water component. The above mentioned factors restrict the growth of the water-based inks market. However, continuous product innovation such as development of pH stable inks and enhancement in resins utilized in ink formulation provide potential growth opportunities for market expansion.
