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

The quantity of flexographic presses reached over 400 sets within about ten years. After 1980s offset printing developed rapidly in China. In 2000 the output of printing ink was 185kt in China accounting for 5% of total global output. In the 1990s flexographic printing ink became a focus in printing & packaging industry. and it developed fast in China since 1990s. In 1995 the output of printing ink reached 100. Some domestic companies started introducing some multicolor photogravure presses in that period. and the output reached 20kt in 2004. Before the 1980s relief printing was the major printing method in China.000 tonnes in China. and replaced relief printing in many fields. 10 . Now the output of printing ink reaches 302. 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. and the product value of screen printing accounted for less than 1.I-2 History of printing ink industry in China By the end of 1950s. small quantity of printing inks had been produced in China.3kt in China in 2005 keeping ranking the fourth in the world.0% of total product value in China. In the 1970s water based gravure ink was developed and put into production. In the later period of 1980s gravure ink suddenly rose.

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.

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.

Compared with the international market.II Future forecast II-1 Key factors and driven forces for the development of ink industry in China . the total output will be about 500kt.Driving forces Fast development of consumption fields of printing ink The consumption fields of printing ink such as packaging. Domestic manufacturers should be proved by USA Pantone Color standard if their printing inks will be exported to international market. Many corporations will grasp the chance to promote their products. a little higher than GDP growth.Negative factors High cost of raw materials Price rise of crude oil and raw materials such as resins and pigments will bring great pressure on printing ink industry. II-2 Future forecast on ink industry in the next 5 years . and to 2010.Production At present. Along with the swift development of downstream industries such as packaging. China has become the fourth largest producer of printing ink in the world. the output of printing ink in China will increase with the CAGR of about 11%. In the coming five years. It is a huge market for packaging and advertising industry. Chinese market is more attractive to those large multinational printing ink manufacturers who are transferring more capacity of printing ink to China. Printing ink will no doubt benefit from the market. The profit of manufacturers is lowered down. . China is becoming a global manufacturing center and crucial sales market of printing ink. Sports show in China The Olympic Games will be held in Beijing in 2008.

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

Water based printing ink In water based inks. Yu estimates that in soft package printing area. solvents and additives. and 5% content is IPA. Yu estimates that in soft package area. 90% is solvent-based ink consumed in inner printing (40%). other printers do not care about the composition of printing inks. Mr. and 10% were printed by flexographic printing inks and other printing inks. as well as the clients’ requirements on their purchasing orders. the volume of exterior gravure inks vs the volume of inner gravure inks is 50:50. PU and PVC. PE. the majority of solvents are ethyl alcohol and water. When the water based printing ink is for flexographic printing: If considered with drying property and solution property of the printing ink. Mr. Yu estimates that in China’s gravure inks for plastic films. And they do not care about whether printing ink contains toluene and other substances or not. ethanol is better than IPA. Comment on the end use Actually. The substrates for printing are generally polyacrylic acid. When printing on CPP. the percentage of substrates consumption vs printing inks consumption is approx 10:3. The resins for printing inks containing IPA include PA. Mr. Yu comments that about 10% is water based ink. which means that printing 1t thin film will consume 200~300kg 95 . PVC and so on. BOPP. the consumption of gravure ink vs flexographic printing ink is probably 20:1. PET. except the soft package and printing manufacturers. exterior printing (30%) and others (20%). The printing ink coverage percentage on nylon surface is relatively smaller. Mr. Yu claimed that now in China 90% soft package products were printed by gravure ink. How to change is according to the supply situation of raw materials such as resins. Yu concludes that printing inks with IPA are mainly used in the following areas: Flexible packaging Mr.Mr. Formulation for water based inks is changeable. the coverage percentage of printing ink on the surface is estimated over 50%. as long as it works well. Mr. of which PA printing ink is the majority of printing inks. CPP. Yu also estimates that interior gravure printing inks are generally chloropropene ink.

the ink coverage percentage is generally 100%. instant fish and other food products generally adopts inner gravure inks. Toluene and xylene are good solvents for printing inks. the printing ink is usually solvent based products. Mr. Tobacco Packaging The printing ink for tobacco packaging is usually solvent based ink. mainly caused by the higher cost of alcohol solvents especially IPA. packaging and printing for food such as milk powder. Yu estimates that 1t cigarette packaging paper will consume about 300~500kg printing inks. Besides that. Mr. Yu estimates that in the future five years this substitution trend will not be evident and the 96 . The ink for paper box printing is usually water-based ink. 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. alcohol-based printing ink and water based ink For alcohol based printing ink such as IPA based printing ink. Yu thinks that it can not substitute the place of traditional solvents based printing ink such as toluene based and xylene based printing ink. Carton printing About 80% water based printing inks are used for carton printing. For packaging and printing for washing powder. Yu estimates almost all the cartons for package are printed with water -based inks and it is carried out by flexographic printing process. Position of benzene-based printing ink. For cigarette packaging and printing. This packaging processing requires two thin films and one ink.printing inks. Mr. which require the thin film. and printing inks are alkali-resistant. 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. Mr. and few printing ink manufacturers complied with the laws or regulations. Even though Chinese government has made laws or regulations to limit the emission of solvents as toluene and xylene. Aluminum foil packaging For aluminum foil packaging and printing. the ink coverage percentage is approx 100%. because of the following reasons: The production cost of alcohol based printing inks is still higher than other printing inks. the consumption of the two solvents is still big.
