evaporation drying ink. since most of planographic printing inks are offset printing inks in China. ink could be classified into web-fed 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. Planographic printing is a major printing method in China. moisture-set 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. penetration drying ink. UV printing ink and some kinds of special inks will also be introduced. Some other printing inks such as water based printing ink. ink could be classified into air drying ink. etc. water based printing ink. in this report CCM mainly introduces offset printing ink. According to the component. alcohol based printing ink. radiator drying ink. 9 . According to printing processes. etc.
In this period people also started the research and application of water based flexographic printing ink.3kt in China in 2005 keeping ranking the fourth in the world. and the output reached 20kt in 2004. Before the 1980s relief printing was the major printing method in China.000 tonnes in China. In the later period of 1980s gravure ink suddenly rose. In 2000 the output of printing ink was 185kt in China accounting for 5% of total global output. and the product value of screen printing accounted for less than 1. small quantity of printing inks had been produced in China. and replaced relief printing in many fields. Now the output of printing ink reaches 302.I-2 History of printing ink industry in China By the end of 1950s. The quantity of flexographic presses reached over 400 sets within about ten years. Since 1995 flexographic printing industry in China developed fast. 10 . Some domestic companies started introducing some multicolor photogravure presses in that period. In the 1970s water based gravure ink was developed and put into production. In the 1990s flexographic printing ink became a focus in printing & packaging industry. In 1995 the output of printing ink reached 100. and the sales income reached 4 billion. After 1980s offset printing developed rapidly in China.0% of total product value in China. and it developed fast in China since 1990s.
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.

In 2004 the output of gravure ink reached about 80kt in China. Gravure ink industry in China will keep increasing with high speed in the future. From 1990s on gravure ink developed fast in China. among which 400 ones are imported from overseas suppliers and 300 ones are from domestic suppliers. and almost all kinds of gravure ink can be produced in China. the output of gravure ink was 95. The output of exterior ink was about 57. .5% of total output of ink in China.225 tonnes. In the 1960s.5% from 2001 to 2005. In 2005. small quantities of printing inks have been produced in China. In the 1970s water based gravure ink was developed and put into production. The difference between homemade gravure ink and overseas ones became smaller and smaller. exterior gravure ink for plastic films such as PE and PP was developed as plastic film packing material was taken in domestic market. Moreover homemade gravure ink could satisfy the requirement of the customers in both quality and quantity. The annual growth rate of gravure printing ink was 13. In the 1980s inner gravure ink for plastic films was developed in China.I-3.2. which accounted for 31. the quantity of printing ink was still small. In recent years more and more ink enterprises were established. At present domestic exterior gravure ink mainly includes gravure ink for general flexible package. From 1960s to 1970s.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.000 tonnes in 2005 occupying about 40% of total 20 . Some domestic started introducing some multicolour photogravure presses in that period. 0-60% solvents and 0-5% addition agents. for cigarette pack and gravure ink for paper skin and so on.Historic development of gravure ink in China By the end of 1950s.2 Gravure ink Gravure ink consists of 5-15% pigments. and gravure ink for paper which was mainly supplied to publishing industry was the major specification. . 20-40% binders. Till now there are about 700 gravure printing production lines in China.
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,
and the market is saturated with gravure ink with low price. To ink producers the profit is reduced. . and the volatilizable chlorofluorocarbon gas will destroy ozone layer. 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.Developing trends Because the production of gravure ink for plastic film is restricted by fire regulations. The competitiveness in gravure ink industry becomes more acute. and this results in the cost rising of ink production. The prospective gravure ink in the future in China should have the characters as follows: 22 . Rising cost In recent years the price of some raw materials rose rapidly such as solvents. liquidity and low price. etc. some major raw materials are short of supply. to develop and apply green gravure ink. . benzene is easy to remain in the layers of dry ink. but the price of gravure ink is difficult to rise. so homemade gravure ink has the performance of good suitability. What is more. pigments and additives and so on. gravure inner ink is made of chloridize polymer. While chloridize polymer needed to dissolve with strong solvents such as toluene during the process of ink production. normative production environment. For example. Toluene is needed to adjust the ink viscosity during the process of ink printing. intervallic performance. titanium dioxide. In addition. law of labor safety and health. plenty varieties. water based gravure ink and the other eco-friendly gravure inks will be an inexorable trend in the future few years. a lot of varieties and single color. The sales of gravure ink with higher-priced decreased. and the benzene vestigital will pollute the food or supplies inside the packaging. and the aromatic series solvents will do harm to human bodies and cause fire. Supply exceeds demand At present the supply of gravure ink exceeds the demand.venomousness and flammability. poor production environment and nonstandard operation. It is estimated that the oil will keep higher-priced for a long time in the future.Comparison between homemade gravure ink and overseas gravure ink Because of the fast speed printing speed of overseas printing machine.
compound and stewing Modest price Others Alcohol based gravure ink makes less pollution to the environment compared to other gravure inks.Single solvent Extensive sphere of application Triune of inner. Water based gravure ink is also a kind of eco-friendly ink. than that with solvent based gravure ink because water is difficult to volatilize. ketone-free. 15%-25%. while it is difficult to consume large quantity of water based gravure ink in paper printing because in China. It has the characters of weak smell. benzene-free. etc. 23 . There are two problems in the consumption of water based gravure ink. water based gravure ink will have a good developing foreground. and they are: Printing quality: The brightness of presswork is not enough. and it can replace toluene based gravure ink to reduce the harm to human bodies and the influence to food quality. If the above problems are solved. Printing speed: The printing speed with water based gravure ink is much slower. It will play an important role in gravure ink industry in the future.

Eco-friendly printing ink such as water based printing ink and UV printing ink will be the emphasis we will research and develop. I-188.8.131.52 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.

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

PE. How to change is according to the supply situation of raw materials such as resins.

BOPP. PU and PVC. the volume of exterior gravure inks vs the volume of inner gravure inks is 50:50. and 10% were printed by flexographic printing inks and other printing inks. PVC and so on. Mr. The substrates for printing are generally polyacrylic acid. exterior printing (30%) and others (20%). Mr. Yu claimed that now in China 90% soft package products were printed by gravure ink.

Comment on the end use Actually. as well as the clients’ requirements on their purchasing orders. When printing on CPP. Water based printing ink In water based inks. Yu also estimates that interior gravure printing inks are generally chloropropene ink. the consumption of gravure ink vs flexographic printing ink is probably 20:1. as long as it works well. And they do not care about whether printing ink contains toluene and other substances or not. the percentage of substrates consumption vs printing inks consumption is approx 10:3. PET. ethanol is better than IPA. Formulation for water based inks is changeable. solvents and additives. and 5% content is IPA. of which PA printing ink is the majority of printing inks.
For packaging and printing for washing powder. Besides that. Mr. which require the thin film. because of the following reasons: The production cost of alcohol based printing inks is still higher than other printing inks.
