since most of planographic printing inks are offset printing inks in China. ink could be classified into air drying ink. etc.I Production and market information I-1 Classification of printing ink in China There are many approaches to classify printing ink: According to drying method. radiator drying ink. water based printing ink. 9 . penetration drying ink. ink could be classified into web-fed printing ink. UV printing ink and some kinds of special inks will also be introduced. Some other printing inks such as water based printing ink. printing ink could be classified into: Offset printing ink Gravure printing ink Flexographic printing ink Relief printing ink Screen printing ink CCM takes on the classification method by printing processes. moisture-set printing ink. in this report CCM mainly introduces offset printing ink. alcohol based printing ink. Planographic printing is a major printing method in China. evaporation drying ink. According to printing processes. etc. According to the component.
In 1995 the output of printing ink reached 100.0% of total product value in China. After 1980s offset printing developed rapidly in China.000 tonnes in China. Now the output of printing ink reaches 302. and it developed fast in China since 1990s. In the 1970s water based gravure ink was developed and put into production. In the later period of 1980s gravure ink suddenly rose. 10 . Some domestic companies started introducing some multicolor photogravure presses in that period. Before the 1980s relief printing was the major printing method in China. In 2000 the output of printing ink was 185kt in China accounting for 5% of total global output. and replaced relief printing in many fields. The quantity of flexographic presses reached over 400 sets within about ten years.3kt in China in 2005 keeping ranking the fourth in the world. and the product value of screen printing accounted for less than 1. and the sales income reached 4 billion. Since 1995 flexographic printing industry in China developed fast. In this period people also started the research and application of water based flexographic printing ink. In the 1990s flexographic printing ink became a focus in printing & packaging industry. and the output reached 20kt in 2004. small quantity of printing inks had been produced in China.I-2 History of printing ink industry in China By the end of 1950s.
I-3 Current production situation of printing ink in China Since the end of last century domestic printing ink developed rapidly with the average annual growth rate of 17.6% from 2001 to 2005, and the output ranked fourth in the world. In 2005, the ink output was 302,300 tonnes, of which offset printing ink ranked first accounting for 47.5% of total printing ink output, and gravure ink ranked second accounting for 31.5% of total printing ink output in China. China produced 280,800 tonnes of printing ink from Jan. to Oct. 2006 with growth rate of 10.2% compared to that in 2005. It is estimated that the output of printing ink will reach 340,000 tonnes in 2006. In 2006 some fields of printing ink keep increasing steadily and packaging printing ink increased with the highest grow rate among which the growth rate of UV flexographic packaging printing ink and functional printing ink was in the front rank. Some new inks with over 50 species, including quick-set offset Ink, web-fed-offset ink, gravure ink, flexographic printing ink, screen printing ink, offset tin-printing ink, UV printing ink, water based printing ink and anti-forgery ink and so on, were developed in order to satisfy domestic market demand. The quality of homemade printing inks improved a lot, and the printing inks of some producers have acquired the chartered right of American Pontone Printing Ink color standard. Some producers such as Tianjin Toyo, Shanghai DIC, Zhejiang New East and Yunnan Hongta Yuehai and so on have passed the certification of ISO9000 Quality Management System. Taking one with another, most of homemade printing inks are medium-grade or low-grade products, and the supply exceeds the demand, while some high-grade and special printing inks still need to be imported to satisfy the domestic market demand.

The difference between homemade gravure ink and overseas ones became smaller and smaller. . . The annual growth rate of gravure printing ink was 13. for cigarette pack and gravure ink for paper skin and so on. In 2004 the output of gravure ink reached about 80kt in China. the quantity of printing ink was still small. 0-60% solvents and 0-5% addition agents. 20-40% binders. which accounted for 31. From 1990s on gravure ink developed fast in China. small quantities of printing inks have been produced in China. In the 1980s inner gravure ink for plastic films was developed in China.I-3. among which 400 ones are imported from overseas suppliers and 300 ones are from domestic suppliers.5% from 2001 to 2005. From 1960s to 1970s.225 tonnes.5% of total output of ink in China. Till now there are about 700 gravure printing production lines in China. In the 1960s. In recent years more and more ink enterprises were established. Moreover homemade gravure ink could satisfy the requirement of the customers in both quality and quantity. In the 1970s water based gravure ink was developed and put into production.2 Gravure ink Gravure ink consists of 5-15% pigments. The output of exterior ink was about 57. exterior gravure ink for plastic films such as PE and PP was developed as plastic film packing material was taken in domestic market. and gravure ink for paper which was mainly supplied to publishing industry was the major specification. and almost all kinds of gravure ink can be produced in China. Gravure ink industry in China will keep increasing with high speed in the future.Historic development of gravure ink in China By the end of 1950s.000 tonnes in 2005 occupying about 40% of total 20 .Production situation of gravure ink As a kind of major ink in China gravure ink accounts for a large share in ink industry only second to offset printing ink. In 2005. At present domestic exterior gravure ink mainly includes gravure ink for general flexible package. the output of gravure ink was 95. Some domestic started introducing some multicolour photogravure presses in that period.2.
output of gravure ink. In exterior ink polyamide (PA) ink is the major ink mainly consumed in South China and East China, and it possesses a share of 70% of total consumption. Gravure ink for paper, mainly consumed in South China, East China and Southeast China, accounts for 20%, and the others occupy 10%. The output of inner ink was about 38,000 tonnes in 2005 occupying about 60% of total output of gravure ink. In inner ink about 90% is BOPP special ink based on chlorinated polypropylene, about 10% is polyurethane (PU) gravure ink, and some others are Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB) alcohol based gravure ink.

- Consumption pattern of gravure ink Exterior gravure ink for plastic film, produced with the main body of polyamide, is mainly consumed in the surface printing of OPP, BOPP, PET, PA, etc. Inner gravure ink for plastic film, produced with resins of chlorinated polypropylene series, is mainly applied in the printing of laminated films such as OPP and BOPP films with superficial treatment. Gravure ink for aluminum foil is mainly consumed in the aluminum foil printing as beer tags or candy packaging. As investigated domestic market consumes 40-45kt/a gravure ink for plastic packaging, among which 50-55% is chlorinated polypropylene film, and 40-45% is polyamide film. - Problems existing in gravure ink industry Environmental pollution At present most homemade gravure ink contains large quantity of organic solvent (about 50%) including toluene, ethyl acetate, butanone, etc. These solvents are the major pollution sources of the environment with characters of low boiling point, high volatilization, dutrex containing,
Developing trends Because the production of gravure ink for plastic film is restricted by fire regulations. overseas gravure ink has the performances as follows: High condensate contents Low viscosity Glamorous colors Good tinctorial strength Others Domestic printing machine mainly runs at medium and low speed with small lot of products. normative production environment. pigments and additives and so on. some major raw materials are short of supply. In addition. To ink producers the profit is reduced. gravure inner ink is made of chloridize polymer.venomousness and flammability. and the benzene vestigital will pollute the food or supplies inside the packaging. etc. For example. . Toluene is needed to adjust the ink viscosity during the process of ink printing. and this results in the cost rising of ink production. What is more. a lot of varieties and single color. titanium dioxide. liquidity and low price. to develop and apply green gravure ink.Comparison between homemade gravure ink and overseas gravure ink Because of the fast speed printing speed of overseas printing machine. so homemade gravure ink has the performance of good suitability. and the volatilizable chlorofluorocarbon gas will destroy ozone layer. law of labor safety and health. The prospective gravure ink in the future in China should have the characters as follows: 22 . plenty varieties. It is estimated that the oil will keep higher-priced for a long time in the future. benzene is easy to remain in the layers of dry ink. poor production environment and nonstandard operation. Rising cost In recent years the price of some raw materials rose rapidly such as solvents. While chloridize polymer needed to dissolve with strong solvents such as toluene during the process of ink production. but the price of gravure ink is difficult to rise. and the market is saturated with gravure ink with low price. The sales of gravure ink with higher-priced decreased. . The competitiveness in gravure ink industry becomes more acute. and the aromatic series solvents will do harm to human bodies and cause fire. intervallic performance. Supply exceeds demand At present the supply of gravure ink exceeds the demand. water based gravure ink and the other eco-friendly gravure inks will be an inexorable trend in the future few years.
while it is difficult to consume large quantity of water based gravure ink in paper printing because in China. 15%-25%. benzene-free. Water based gravure ink is also a kind of eco-friendly ink. There are two problems in the consumption of water based gravure ink. It will play an important role in gravure ink industry in the future. 23 . If the above problems are solved. and they are: Printing quality: The brightness of presswork is not enough. than that with solvent based gravure ink because water is difficult to volatilize. ketone-free. It has the characters of weak smell. water based gravure ink will have a good developing foreground. and it can replace toluene based gravure ink to reduce the harm to human bodies and the influence to food quality. etc. Printing speed: The printing speed with water based gravure ink is much slower.Single solvent Extensive sphere of application Triune of inner. compound and stewing Modest price Others Alcohol based gravure ink makes less pollution to the environment compared to other gravure inks.

Eco-friendly printing ink such as water based printing ink and UV printing ink will be the emphasis we will research and develop. I-22.214.171.124 Water based printing ink Water based printing ink is made of water-solubility, organic pigment, surface active agent and interrelated additives. Compared to solvent based printing ink, the solvents of water based printing ink are water or ethanol, and it makes little pollution to the environment due to its low VOC content. In America the consumption of water based printing ink accounts for over 40% of total printing ink consumption in plastic films printing, and the demand of water based printing ink becomes more and more in other developed countries. Currently the consumption of water based printing ink in flexible packaging industry ranks the first, about 35% of total printing ink consumption in flexible packaging industry, in China. Currently water based printing ink for flexible package ranked the first in China accounting for about 35% of total ink consumption for flexible package. - Historical development of water based printing ink In the 1960s people began the research and application of water based printing ink. At that time oil products were limited to make printing ink because of environmental protection and the shortage of oil materials. So people began researching non-organic solvents and water based printing ink developed rapidly. At the end of 1960s, rosin and amberol resin became the major raw materials by replacing casein, shell-lac and so on. Water based printing ink in this period was distinguished as first generation. In the 1970s some developed countries legislated to control air quality and limited the exhaust of VOC. Second generation was developed by taking solution type styrene-acrylic resin as binder, which meant water based printing ink entered a new era in its history. Water based printing ink was firstly imported into China from Singapore, and now the high-grade water based printing ink which Chinese consumed can be regard as fourth generation. Tianjin Ink Factory firstly developed water based printing ink in China which was mainly consumed in gravure printing. The product had the abuses of lost of loss, thin, bad water resistance and so on, which deeply influenced domestic gravure printing and flexographic printing. Large quantities of high-priced and high-grade imported water based printing ink had to be applied, and it restricted the development of domestic printing industry.

It is applicable widely for packaging and printings of cigarette. non-water-resistance. For example in summer days beer will always be put in the refrigerator or ice water.Forecast on water based printing ink Key factors Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic puts teeth in 3C certification in food packaging in 2006. water based printing ink is difficult to most and print on the base material of polyethylene. Not only imported water based printing ink but also homemade water based printing ink has the deficiency of non-alkaliresistant. the resins are solidified and fixed on top of printing plate. Only the plastic food packaging which reaches 3C certification can be on the market. Some producers of water based printing ink have improved the performance of the resin to promote its dissolution in order that the printing system can maintain long-time running and improve the production efficiency. Improving the surface patience of printed matter especially oil proof. and water based printing ink can’t bear to lose color. the limitations of base materials. Therefore water based printing ink will be accepted and adopted by more domestic consumers in the future few years. and it will promote the consumption of water based printing ink in China. water based printing ink is a kind of green printing ink and it doesn’t contain volatile organic solvents. In addition. Compared to other kinds of printing ink.000 domestic producers of color-printing packaging. .flexographic printing will possess about 15% of total printing ink consumption in 2010. medicine. poor lustrousness. reduce the toxicity of the printing surface and be convenient to clean the printing equipment. heat resisting and cryophylactic and so on 35 . The developing trends of water based printing ink are listed as follows: Improving the performance of water based printing ink Water based printing ink with steady PH should be developed to avoid PH detection and adjustment. easy to cause paper contract and so on. thus VOC exhaust reduces.

Some world-famous manufacturers entered Chinese market in succession. At present. at the same time. high quality requirement of product. environmental protection. Chinese printing ink enterprises had to conduct technical innovation. More enterprises will be washed out due to the factors including environmental protection. especially on China. And now the output of foreign-owned and joint venture companies accounts for over 50% of total output of printing ink in China. the competition among native printing ink enterprises becomes more intensive. high production cost. so printing ink enterprises in those countries may not invest into capacity-enlarging projects in the future. printing ink industry in developed countries has already went into maturity age. The prices of energy sources and raw materials for printing ink production rose greatly in recent years. Such situation makes them impose the hope on Asia.I-4 Competitiveness of Chinese printing ink industry Along with the accelerating marketization of Chinese printing ink industry. 38 . which leads to unprecedented competition between Chinese and overseas printing ink enterprises. It was estimated that the average annual growth rate of printing ink demand in developed countries will be lower than 3%. etc. which deeply influences the printing ink industry in China. Chinese printing ink industry is not so competitive in the international market. improving quality of product and developing high grade printing ink and so on. To survive the keen competition in the future.
China was the largest producing base of organic pigment in the world with the output of 157kt in 2005. 39 . The apparent consumption volume of titanium dioxide was about 752kt in China in 2005 among which 38.580kt among which only about 7. of which 682kt were titanium dioxide accounting for 36. Current statistic shows that there are about 350 manufacturers of pigment in China. Just like titanium dioxide. The major colorants for the production of printing ink are pigment and dyestuff.I-5 Supplying situation of raw material As an important basic raw material for chemical products. it still deeply influenced domestic production of printing ink.260kt/a. In 2005 the price of crude oil reached the top. Although the import volume of organic pigment is small compared to total output in China. and some high grade titanium dioxides still need to be imported to satisfy the production of high quality printing ink.5% of total output.3% was consumed in the production of printing ink. with the average annual growth rate of output being 21% in 2002~2005. The supply of titanium dioxide exceeds greatly the demand in the production of printing ink in quantity. The price of organic solvent was a little lower than that in 2004.868kt of pigments in 2005.9kt was consumed in printing ink. and 157kt were organic pigments. with the capacity of 2. most homemade organic pigments are also low grade. Titanium dioxide and organic pigment are the major raw materials for the production of printing ink. The cost of raw materials was RMB1. In 2005 the apparent consumption volume of pigment in China reached about 1.Production Chinese pigment industry develops rapidly in recent years. While the price of organic solvent directly controls the profit of manufacturers of solvent based printing ink.000 higher than that in 2004. about USD70/bbl.4% of total output.000-3. Pigment . The apparent consumption volume of organic pigment was about 73kt in China among which about 67. and they totally produced 1. Nowadays. accounting for 8. China has become one of major production countries of pigment in the world. But most homemade titanium dioxides are low grade. Colorant is the major raw material for the pigmentation of printing ink.0% was consumed in printing ink in 2005 accounting for the largest share. crude oil certainly affects the price of printing ink.

CCM estimates that Chinese demand for printing ink during 2006~2010 will increase with the CAGR of 10%.000 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 .Demand Along with the fast development of consumption fields such as packaging. publishing and advertisement and so on. The demand of relief printing ink will decrease obviously while flexographic printing ink will develop fast. To 2010. will be stable. whose market share will keep about 45-50%.000 Output/tonnes 400. The demand of gravure ink will keep stable. With the more demand of printing ink in metal. glass and plastic products industry.situation of printing ink in China in the future.000 200. The demand for offset printing ink. Figure II-2-1 Output of printing ink in China in the coming five years 500. screen printing ink will possess a larger share in the printing ink market. the demand for printing ink in China will reach 540kt.000 300.
Distribution Northeast: The demand of printing ink especially printing ink for plastic films will increase greatly and the market competition will be more intense. The competition will become more intense. Southwest: Some medium and small printing inks enterprises cropped up across the regions. trading and printing business. On this account new products are difficult to be developed.000 Demand/tonnes 400. But the supply will still exceed the demand. the requirement of ink level is small. and market potential is huge in the region. and solvent based printing ink will gradually disappear from the market as they are harmful to people and the environment. The ink quality contrast was remarkable and many producers tried to grab the market with low price. South China: The demand of printing ink will increase annually because of the highly developed manufacturing.000 200. High quality. and the price will continue decreasing. Offset printing ink is the major printing ink in the regions. 66 . low price and knight service are the key points to take hold in the market. West China: Along with the laggard economy. and it is unfavorable to bump up the ink level. North China: Water based flexographic printing ink and UV printing ink will develop fast.000 - 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 .Figure II-2-2 Future demand of printing ink in China in the coming five years 600.
67 . As water based printing ink can only be consumed in gravure press and flexographic press. Although the output and consumption of gravure ink developed fast with CAGR of over 10% in the past five years.III Conclusion Currently the major printing inks in China are offset printing ink and gravure ink. and high quality printing presses can’t be produced in China. gravure press and flexographic press. the consumption of UV printing ink increased rapidly in China because UV printing ink can be consumed in almost all kinds of printing presses such as relief press. and UV offset printing ink occupied a certain market share in cigarette packaging. the major consumption field of gravure ink. and they will still account for the largest share in the future few years. as there are only several manufacturers of UV printing ink and the quality of overseas UV printing ink is much better than homemade ones. Currently water based printing ink are only consumed in medium and low grade package printing in China. and it will be a long time for water based printing to be widely consumed in high grade package printing. As also a kind of eco-friendly printing ink. almost unchanged in the past few years. offset press. the consumption volume of gravure ink for paper packaging developed slowly. the situation of water based printing ink is different from that of UV printing ink. As a kind of eco-friendly printing ink. As the output of domestic cigarette. While most UV printing inks consumed in China depend on import.

For cigarette packaging and printing. alcohol-based printing ink and water based ink For alcohol based printing ink such as IPA based printing ink. For packaging and printing for washing powder. The ink for paper box printing is usually water-based ink. Mr. Toluene and xylene are good solvents for printing inks. the ink coverage percentage is approx 100%. mainly caused by the higher cost of alcohol solvents especially IPA. the most typical product is the packaging bags of washing powder. The price for these raw materials is too high which limited the development of solvent based printing inks. Yu thinks that it can not substitute the place of traditional solvents based printing ink such as toluene based and xylene based printing ink. The unit ink consumption per carton (around 15cm x 30cm x 40cm) = 5g (estimated). Besides that. the consumption of the two solvents is still big. Mr. Carton printing About 80% water based printing inks are used for carton printing. This packaging processing requires two thin films and one ink. Tobacco Packaging The printing ink for tobacco packaging is usually solvent based ink. Aluminum foil packaging For aluminum foil packaging and printing. which require the thin film. For inner printing. Mr. Position of benzene-based printing ink. instant fish and other food products generally adopts inner gravure inks. packaging and printing for food such as milk powder. because of the following reasons: The production cost of alcohol based printing inks is still higher than other printing inks. Yu estimates that 1t cigarette packaging paper will consume about 300~500kg printing inks. Yu estimates that in the future five years this substitution trend will not be evident and the 96 . Now in China a lot of the resins and additives for high grade printing inks production are imported from abroad and domestic supply can’t meet the production demand.
