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. water based printing ink. etc. UV printing ink and some kinds of special inks will also be introduced. alcohol based printing ink.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. in this report CCM mainly introduces offset printing ink. evaporation drying ink. 9 . moisture-set printing ink. ink could be classified into air drying ink. penetration drying ink. etc. According to the component. ink could be classified into web-fed printing ink. radiator drying ink. since most of planographic printing inks are offset printing inks in China. Planographic printing is a major printing method in China. According to printing processes.
0% of total product value in China. In this period people also started the research and application of water based flexographic printing ink. In 1995 the output of printing ink reached 100. and the output reached 20kt in 2004. Now the output of printing ink reaches 302.000 tonnes in China. 10 . In the 1990s flexographic printing ink became a focus in printing & packaging industry. In 2000 the output of printing ink was 185kt in China accounting for 5% of total global output. and it developed fast in China since 1990s. Some domestic companies started introducing some multicolor photogravure presses in that period. In the later period of 1980s gravure ink suddenly rose. After 1980s offset printing developed rapidly in China. and the sales income reached 4 billion. Since 1995 flexographic printing industry in China developed fast. and the product value of screen printing accounted for less than 1. small quantity of printing inks had been produced in China. The quantity of flexographic presses reached over 400 sets within about ten years.I-2 History of printing ink industry in China By the end of 1950s.3kt in China in 2005 keeping ranking the fourth in the world. In the 1970s water based gravure ink was developed and put into production. and replaced relief printing in many fields. Before the 1980s relief printing was the major printing method in China.
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.

so homemade gravure ink has the performance of good suitability. plenty varieties. benzene is easy to remain in the layers of dry ink.Comparison between homemade gravure ink and overseas gravure ink Because of the fast speed printing speed of overseas printing machine. . For example. The sales of gravure ink with higher-priced decreased.venomousness and flammability. intervallic performance. etc. Supply exceeds demand At present the supply of gravure ink exceeds the demand. and the volatilizable chlorofluorocarbon gas will destroy ozone layer. and this results in the cost rising of ink production. and the market is saturated with gravure ink with low price. The prospective gravure ink in the future in China should have the characters as follows: 22 . While chloridize polymer needed to dissolve with strong solvents such as toluene during the process of ink production. 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. gravure inner ink is made of chloridize polymer. The competitiveness in gravure ink industry becomes more acute. water based gravure ink and the other eco-friendly gravure inks will be an inexorable trend in the future few years. but the price of gravure ink is difficult to rise. and the aromatic series solvents will do harm to human bodies and cause fire.Developing trends Because the production of gravure ink for plastic film is restricted by fire regulations. What is more. titanium dioxide. Toluene is needed to adjust the ink viscosity during the process of ink printing. . It is estimated that the oil will keep higher-priced for a long time in the future. normative production environment. To ink producers the profit is reduced. liquidity and low price. a lot of varieties and single color. pigments and additives and so on. and the benzene vestigital will pollute the food or supplies inside the packaging. to develop and apply green gravure ink. Rising cost In recent years the price of some raw materials rose rapidly such as solvents. poor production environment and nonstandard operation. In addition. some major raw materials are short of supply. law of labor safety and health.

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.

And now the output of foreign-owned and joint venture companies accounts for over 50% of total output of printing ink in China. To survive the keen competition in the future. Such situation makes them impose the hope on Asia. environmental protection. Some world-famous manufacturers entered Chinese market in succession. so printing ink enterprises in those countries may not invest into capacity-enlarging projects in the future. high production cost.I-4 Competitiveness of Chinese printing ink industry Along with the accelerating marketization of Chinese printing ink industry. Chinese printing ink enterprises had to conduct technical innovation. improving quality of product and developing high grade printing ink and so on.
Nowadays. China was the largest producing base of organic pigment in the world with the output of 157kt in 2005.Production Chinese pigment industry develops rapidly in recent years. But most homemade titanium dioxides are low grade. The apparent consumption volume of titanium dioxide was about 752kt in China in 2005 among which 38. The supply of titanium dioxide exceeds greatly the demand in the production of printing ink in quantity. it still deeply influenced domestic production of printing ink. Although the import volume of organic pigment is small compared to total output in China.5% of total output. Titanium dioxide and organic pigment are the major raw materials for the production of printing ink.9kt was consumed in printing ink.3% was consumed in the production of printing ink. with the average annual growth rate of output being 21% in 2002~2005. In 2005 the apparent consumption volume of pigment in China reached about 1. and they totally produced 1. The cost of raw materials was RMB1.000-3.000 higher than that in 2004. While the price of organic solvent directly controls the profit of manufacturers of solvent based printing ink. Colorant is the major raw material for the pigmentation of printing ink. crude oil certainly affects the price of printing ink. most homemade organic pigments are also low grade. In 2005 the price of crude oil reached the top. accounting for 8.I-5 Supplying situation of raw material As an important basic raw material for chemical products.4% of total output. The price of organic solvent was a little lower than that in 2004. of which 682kt were titanium dioxide accounting for 36.868kt of pigments in 2005. Just like titanium dioxide. with the capacity of 2. and some high grade titanium dioxides still need to be imported to satisfy the production of high quality printing ink.580kt among which only about 7.0% was consumed in printing ink in 2005 accounting for the largest share. about USD70/bbl. Current statistic shows that there are about 350 manufacturers of pigment in China. China has become one of major production countries of pigment in the world. 39 . Pigment . The major colorants for the production of printing ink are pigment and dyestuff. The apparent consumption volume of organic pigment was about 73kt in China among which about 67.260kt/a. and 157kt were organic pigments.

The demand for offset printing ink. whose market share will keep about 45-50%. 65 . will be stable.000 Output/tonnes 400.000 100.Demand Along with the fast development of consumption fields such as packaging. With the more demand of printing ink in metal. CCM estimates that Chinese demand for printing ink during 2006~2010 will increase with the CAGR of 10%. and the growth of web offset printing ink for newspaper will be a little quicker. the demand for printing ink in China will reach 540kt. Figure II-2-1 Output of printing ink in China in the coming five years 500. The demand of relief printing ink will decrease obviously while flexographic printing ink will develop fast. To 2010. publishing and advertisement and so on. and more gravure ink for plastic films and water based gravure ink will be required.000 200.
and market potential is huge in the region. low price and knight service are the key points to take hold in the market. the requirement of ink level is small. On this account new products are difficult to be developed. High quality. and it is unfavorable to bump up the ink level.Figure II-2-2 Future demand of printing ink in China in the coming five years 600. West China: Along with the laggard economy. South China: The demand of printing ink will increase annually because of the highly developed manufacturing. North China: Water based flexographic printing ink and UV printing ink will develop fast. Southwest: Some medium and small printing inks enterprises cropped up across the regions.000 Demand/tonnes 400.000 200.000 - 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 . 66 . and solvent based printing ink will gradually disappear from the market as they are harmful to people and the environment. and the price will continue decreasing. trading and printing business. The competition will become more intense. Offset printing ink is the major printing ink in the regions. But the supply will still exceed the demand.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 ink quality contrast was remarkable and many producers tried to grab the market with low price.
Although the output and consumption of gravure ink developed fast with CAGR of over 10% in the past five years. While most UV printing inks consumed in China depend on import. and it will be a long time for water based printing to be widely consumed in high grade package printing. gravure press and flexographic press. As a kind of eco-friendly printing ink. offset press. the major consumption field of gravure ink. as there are only several manufacturers of UV printing ink and the quality of overseas UV printing ink is much better than homemade ones. and they will still account for the largest share in the future few years.III Conclusion Currently the major printing inks in China are offset printing ink and gravure ink. As also a kind of eco-friendly printing ink. Currently water based printing ink are only consumed in medium and low grade package printing in China. and UV offset printing ink occupied a certain market share in cigarette packaging. 67 . almost unchanged in the past few years. As water based printing ink can only be consumed in gravure press and flexographic press. the situation of water based printing ink is different from that of UV printing ink. and high quality printing presses can’t be produced in China. As the output of domestic cigarette. 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. the consumption volume of gravure ink for paper packaging developed slowly.

exterior printing (30%) and others (20%). How to change is according to the supply situation of raw materials such as resins. as well as the clients’ requirements on their purchasing orders. which means that printing 1t thin film will consume 200~300kg 95 . Mr. and 10% were printed by flexographic printing inks and other printing inks. the volume of exterior gravure inks vs the volume of inner gravure inks is 50:50. Mr. Comment on the end use Actually. Yu estimates that in soft package area. PU and PVC. Mr. Mr. ethanol is better than IPA. the consumption of gravure ink vs flexographic printing ink is probably 20:1. CPP. Mr. The printing ink coverage percentage on nylon surface is relatively smaller. except the soft package and printing manufacturers. PE. as long as it works well.

Yu also estimates that interior gravure printing inks are generally chloropropene ink. 90% is solvent-based ink consumed in inner printing (40%). When the water based printing ink is for flexographic printing: If considered with drying property and solution property of the printing ink. and 5% content is IPA.

The price for these raw materials is too high which limited the development of solvent based printing inks. 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. Besides that. The ink for paper box printing is usually water-based ink. which require the thin film. For inner printing. Mr. because of the following reasons: The production cost of alcohol based printing inks is still higher than other printing inks. and printing inks are alkali-resistant.

The unit ink consumption per carton (around 15cm x 30cm x 40cm) = 5g (estimated). Yu estimates that 1t cigarette packaging paper will consume about 300~500kg printing inks. the printing ink is usually solvent based products. Carton printing About 80% water based printing inks are used for carton printing. the consumption of the two solvents is still big.
