Geographically, the global printing inks market has been segmented into regions such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW). North America was the largest regional market for printing inks, constituting over 30% share in 2013. Increasing demand for printing inks in the packaging industry, especially flexible packaging, is projected to drive the printing inks market in North America in the next few years. Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest growing region in the global printing Inks market during the forecast period. Higher demand for printing inks in developing countries in Asia, such as China and India, is likely to boost the printing Inks market in Asia Pacific in the next few years. The printing inks market in Europe is projected to expand moderately in the next six years, due to steady recovery of the economy in the region.
Increasing demand for printing inks in rapidly growing application segments such as packaging and commercial printing is anticipated to propel the global printing inks market in the next few years. Higher mass production of UV-cured printing inks and water-based printing inks is projected to offer significant opportunities to the printing inks market, especially in food & beverage, packaging and other end-user industries, in the next six years. However, fluctuation in prices of raw materials coupled with several environmental regulations on solvent-based printing inks and wide acceptance of e-books and e-commerce is likely to hamper market growth during the forecast period.
