The Global Printing Inks Market is estimated to grow at a steady pace during the forecast period of 2017-2022. Printing ink is a liquid or paste that contains pigments or dyes mixed with oils, solvents, or water. This ink is used to color surfaces to get the desired impression on paper, cardboard, and ceramic tiles. The demand for printing inks is driven by the rapid growth of the packaging industry. The increasing demand for flexible packaging from the consumer goods industry and the adoption of several technological innovations in packaging have led to significant growth of the packaging industry.

The increasing demand for UV-curable printing inks and bio-based printing inks offers significant growth opportunities to the global printing inks market. The continued decline in the sales of e-books is expected to boost the printing inks market, as they can be an alternative for paper-based books.

Based on products, printing inks are further divided into solvent-based, water-based, oil-based, and others (including UV curable, decorative, etc.). Oil-based printing inks dominate the global printing inks market, as they are primarily employed in offset printing process. Based on process, the market has been sub-segmented into lithographic printing, gravure printing process, flexographic, digital, and other printing processes (including letterpress, etc.). Lithographic printing process is the most employed printing process across the globe. However, during the forecast period, the digital printing segment is anticipated to witness the highest growth, with increasing adoption of modern printing methods.

Based on application, the market has been categorized into - publication & commercial, packaging, textiles, and others (including decorative, security printing, etc.). Packaging, especially in the food & beverages packaging industry, dominates the global market.
