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. Stock The company is managed in the same way as a stock company. It may/may not be listed on the stock market. Yet the management system must comply with the rules governing stock companies. Joint venture An entity invested in jointly by a foreign company and a Chinese company. The two or more cooperating partners share the profit. The Chinese partner may be an individual or a state-owned unit. Wholly foreign-owned The owner of the company is an individual/unit coming from outside mainland China. Throughout this report, data is classified under two kinds of ownership. Domestic companies Foreign involvement companies When necessary the foreign involvement companies are further classified into two types: Wholly foreign-owned companies
Joint ventures Taking account of the origin of the products/goods, those made by the overseas companies are also included. In this case we attribute the products/goods to imported material, i.e. the material is made in countries outside the People’s Republic of China. - Unit From 1949 to 2005: Since 2006: $1=RMB8.24 $1=RMB8.00

UV printing ink and some kinds of special inks will also be introduced. Some other printing inks such as water based printing ink. since most of planographic printing inks are offset printing inks in China. Planographic printing is a major printing method in China. 9 . ink could be classified into web-fed printing ink. radiator drying ink. water based printing ink. According to the component. moisture-set printing ink. ink could be classified into air drying ink. According to printing processes. 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. penetration drying ink. etc. etc. evaporation drying ink. in this report CCM mainly introduces offset 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.
and it developed fast in China since 1990s. Some domestic companies started introducing some multicolor photogravure presses in that period. In this period people also started the research and application of water based flexographic printing ink. Now the output of printing ink reaches 302.0% of total product value in China. Since 1995 flexographic printing industry in China developed fast. small quantity of printing inks had been produced in China. The quantity of flexographic presses reached over 400 sets within about ten years. In 1995 the output of printing ink reached 100. and replaced relief printing in many fields. In the 1970s water based gravure ink was developed and put into production.3kt in China in 2005 keeping ranking the fourth in the world. and the product value of screen printing accounted for less than 1. After 1980s offset printing developed rapidly in China. and the sales income reached 4 billion.000 tonnes in China. In the later period of 1980s gravure ink suddenly rose. and the output reached 20kt in 2004. 10 . In 2000 the output of printing ink was 185kt in China accounting for 5% of total global output.I-2 History of printing ink industry in China By the end of 1950s. 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.
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.

- 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,
so homemade gravure ink has the performance of good suitability. 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. to develop and apply green gravure ink. and the market is saturated with gravure ink with low price. To ink producers the profit is reduced. The prospective gravure ink in the future in China should have the characters as follows: 22 . intervallic performance. liquidity and low price. poor production environment and nonstandard operation. titanium dioxide. It is estimated that the oil will keep higher-priced for a long time in the future. and the benzene vestigital will pollute the food or supplies inside the packaging.Comparison between homemade gravure ink and overseas gravure ink Because of the fast speed printing speed of overseas printing machine. . 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. and the aromatic series solvents will do harm to human bodies and cause fire. law of labor safety and health. In addition. For example. Toluene is needed to adjust the ink viscosity during the process of ink printing. The competitiveness in gravure ink industry becomes more acute. and this results in the cost rising of ink production. 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. benzene is easy to remain in the layers of dry ink.venomousness and flammability. The sales of gravure ink with higher-priced decreased. plenty varieties. etc. .Developing trends Because the production of gravure ink for plastic film is restricted by fire regulations. some major raw materials are short of supply. normative production environment. pigments and additives and so on. but the price of gravure ink is difficult to rise. and the volatilizable chlorofluorocarbon gas will destroy ozone layer. What is more. Supply exceeds demand At present the supply of gravure ink exceeds the demand. Rising cost In recent years the price of some raw materials rose rapidly such as solvents.
compound and stewing Modest price Others Alcohol based gravure ink makes less pollution to the environment compared to other gravure inks. 23 . water based gravure ink will have a good developing foreground. ketone-free. etc. while it is difficult to consume large quantity of water based gravure ink in paper printing because in China. 15%-25%. It has the characters of weak smell. benzene-free. It will play an important role in gravure ink industry in the future. Printing speed: The printing speed with water based gravure ink is much slower. and it can replace toluene based gravure ink to reduce the harm to human bodies and the influence to food quality. than that with solvent based gravure ink because water is difficult to volatilize.Single solvent Extensive sphere of application Triune of inner. If the above problems are solved. Water based gravure ink is also a kind of eco-friendly ink. and they are: Printing quality: The brightness of presswork is not enough. There are two problems in the consumption of water based gravure ink.

Eco-friendly printing ink such as water based printing ink and UV printing ink will be the emphasis we will research and develop. I-126.96.36.199 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.

I-4 Competitiveness of Chinese printing ink industry Along with the accelerating marketization of Chinese printing ink industry. The prices of energy sources and raw materials for printing ink production rose greatly in recent years. Chinese printing ink enterprises had to conduct technical innovation. To survive the keen competition in the future. so printing ink enterprises in those countries may not invest into capacity-enlarging projects in the future. which deeply influences the printing ink industry in China. especially on China. It was estimated that the average annual growth rate of printing ink demand in developed countries will be lower than 3%. printing ink industry in developed countries has already went into maturity age. 38 . And now the output of foreign-owned and joint venture companies accounts for over 50% of total output of printing ink in China. Some world-famous manufacturers entered Chinese market in succession. at the same time. Chinese printing ink industry is not so competitive in the international market. high production cost. which leads to unprecedented competition between Chinese and overseas printing ink enterprises. More enterprises will be washed out due to the factors including environmental protection. At present. Such situation makes them impose the hope on Asia. environmental protection. high quality requirement of product. improving quality of product and developing high grade printing ink and so on. the competition among native printing ink enterprises becomes more intensive. etc.
Nowadays. The cost of raw materials was RMB1. In 2005 the price of crude oil reached the top. and they totally produced 1. about USD70/bbl.260kt/a. 39 . and some high grade titanium dioxides still need to be imported to satisfy the production of high quality printing ink. with the average annual growth rate of output being 21% in 2002~2005. Current statistic shows that there are about 350 manufacturers of pigment in China. crude oil certainly affects the price of printing ink.000 higher than that in 2004. 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. most homemade organic pigments are also low grade. Just like titanium dioxide. China has become one of major production countries of pigment in the world.868kt of pigments in 2005.4% of total output. Titanium dioxide and organic pigment are the major raw materials for the production of printing ink. The major colorants for the production of printing ink are pigment and dyestuff. of which 682kt were titanium dioxide accounting for 36. The apparent consumption volume of organic pigment was about 73kt in China among which about 67.5% of total output. The apparent consumption volume of titanium dioxide was about 752kt in China in 2005 among which 38. and 157kt were organic pigments.000-3.I-5 Supplying situation of raw material As an important basic raw material for chemical products. While the price of organic solvent directly controls the profit of manufacturers of solvent based printing ink. But most homemade titanium dioxides are low grade. with the capacity of 2. Although the import volume of organic pigment is small compared to total output in China.9kt was consumed in printing ink. China was the largest producing base of organic pigment in the world with the output of 157kt in 2005. accounting for 8. Colorant is the major raw material for the pigmentation of printing ink. Pigment .580kt among which only about 7. The price of organic solvent was a little lower than that in 2004. In 2005 the apparent consumption volume of pigment in China reached about 1.0% was consumed in printing ink in 2005 accounting for the largest share.Production Chinese pigment industry develops rapidly in recent years.3% was consumed in the production of printing ink.

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

For packaging and printing for washing powder. Yu estimates that 1t cigarette packaging paper will consume about 300~500kg printing inks. mainly caused by the higher cost of alcohol solvents especially IPA. and few printing ink manufacturers complied with the laws or regulations. because of the following reasons: The production cost of alcohol based printing inks is still higher than other printing inks. alcohol-based printing ink and water based ink For alcohol based printing ink such as IPA based printing ink. Aluminum foil packaging For aluminum foil packaging and printing. packaging and printing for food such as milk powder. Even though Chinese government has made laws or regulations to limit the emission of solvents as toluene and xylene.
