Based on many macro factors, such as GDP, living standard, and development of related industry, CCM estimated the future market of related industries from 2006 to 2010. List definition - Apparent consumption Apparent consumption equals production + import – export. It is one of the factors reflecting demand, which excludes quantities in storage from the apparent consumption. This report assumes that superficial consumption equates to actual consumption, and therefore demand. - Foreign/overseas Anything or any activity pertaining to individuals/units coming from territories outside the mainland, People’s Republic of China (e.g. foreign company refers to a company located in a country outside mainland China). - Ownership Ownership of enterprises can be classified as follows: State-owned The whole factory/company is financed and owned by the local/central government. Private The whole factory/company is financed and owned by an individual person. The owner has the right to manage the factory/company.

radiator drying ink. alcohol based printing ink. since most of planographic printing inks are offset printing inks in China. in this report CCM mainly introduces offset printing 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. water based printing ink. 9 . UV printing ink and some kinds of special inks will also be introduced. penetration drying ink. ink could be classified into web-fed printing ink. According to the component. moisture-set printing ink. According to printing processes. etc. ink could be classified into air drying ink. evaporation drying 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. Planographic printing is a major printing method in China. Some other printing inks such as water based printing ink.

and replaced relief printing in many fields. and the product value of screen printing accounted for less than 1. Since 1995 flexographic printing industry in China developed fast. and it developed fast in China since 1990s. Now the output of printing ink reaches 302.000 tonnes in China. In 1995 the output of printing ink reached 100. small quantity of printing inks had been produced in China. and the sales income reached 4 billion. In 2000 the output of printing ink was 185kt in China accounting for 5% of total global output.3kt in China in 2005 keeping ranking the fourth in the world. Before the 1980s relief printing was the major printing method in China. In the 1990s flexographic printing ink became a focus in printing & packaging industry. 10 .I-2 History of printing ink industry in China By the end of 1950s. In the 1970s water based gravure ink was developed and put into production. In the later period of 1980s gravure ink suddenly rose.0% of total product value in China. Some domestic companies started introducing some multicolor photogravure presses in that period. and the output reached 20kt in 2004. After 1980s offset printing developed rapidly in China. In this period people also started the research and application of water based flexographic printing ink. The quantity of flexographic presses reached over 400 sets within about ten years.

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.

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

while it is difficult to consume large quantity of water based gravure ink in paper printing because in China. benzene-free. If the above problems are solved. Printing speed: The printing speed with water based gravure ink is much slower. 15%-25%. Water based gravure ink is also a kind of eco-friendly ink. and it can replace toluene based gravure ink to reduce the harm to human bodies and the influence to food quality. It has the characters of weak smell. compound and stewing Modest price Others Alcohol based gravure ink makes less pollution to the environment compared to other gravure inks. etc.Single solvent Extensive sphere of application Triune of inner. water based gravure ink will have a good developing foreground. than that with solvent based gravure ink because water is difficult to volatilize. There are two problems in the consumption of water based gravure ink. and they are: Printing quality: The brightness of presswork is not enough. It will play an important role in gravure ink industry in the future. 23 . ketone-free.

I-3.2.7 Hot spot of printing ink Currently most countries paid more attention to environmental protection. Eco-friendly printing ink such as water based printing ink and UV printing ink will be the emphasis we will research and develop. I-3.2.7.1 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.

On this account new products are difficult to be developed.Distribution Northeast: The demand of printing ink especially printing ink for plastic films will increase greatly and the market competition will be more intense. and market potential is huge in the region. South China: The demand of printing ink will increase annually because of the highly developed manufacturing.000 Demand/tonnes 400.000 200.Figure II-2-2 Future demand of printing ink in China in the coming five years 600. Southwest: Some medium and small printing inks enterprises cropped up across the regions. But the supply will still exceed the demand. trading and printing business. and it is unfavorable to bump up the ink level. and the price will continue decreasing. North China: Water based flexographic printing ink and UV printing ink will develop fast. the requirement of ink level is small.

and it will be a long time for water based printing to be widely consumed in high grade package printing. and high quality printing presses can’t be produced in China. Currently water based printing ink are only consumed in medium and low grade package printing in China. As water based printing ink can only be consumed in gravure press and flexographic press. gravure press and flexographic press. and they will still account for the largest share in the future few years. the situation of water based printing ink is different from that of UV printing ink. As the output of domestic cigarette. offset press. As also a kind of eco-friendly printing ink. the consumption volume of gravure ink for paper packaging developed slowly. Although the output and consumption of gravure ink developed fast with CAGR of over 10% in the past five 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. 67 . and UV offset printing ink occupied a certain market share in cigarette packaging. 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.III Conclusion Currently the major printing inks in China are offset printing ink and gravure ink. almost unchanged in the past few years. the major consumption field of gravure ink. As a kind of eco-friendly printing ink. While most UV printing inks consumed in China depend on import.
