Industry focus: development trends of printing inks at home and abroad (I)

I. situation of the world ink market sensors: many problems caused by plastics are also passed on. Sensors are important components of the accuracy and force measurement stability of experimental machines

at present, the global ink industry continues to grow, and large international companies have used joint ventures, cooperation, acquisitions and other methods to expand internationally. Many international companies have declined in the domestic market, But it has developed in China and the Asia Pacific. In 2003, the enterprises with annual sales of more than 1billion US dollars of global ink include: big Japan ink/sunchem which should be equipped with outer diameter detector, 4.4 billion US dollars of Japan flint ink, 1.4 billion US dollars of Japan Toyo ink; Annual sales of more than $300million include: German BASF $762million, Japan sakatainx $742million, Switzerland sikaba $725million, Japan Tokyo printing ink $454million, Germany hubergroup $380million, Japan sikwell $380million, Japan intecinc $360million, etc

in order to occupy a larger market share, major international ink companies have developed many new ink varieties in recent years: such as sheet fed process ink, thermosetting web offset printing ink, industrial inkjet products (continuous inkjet CIJ, drop DOD on demand), conductive ink (with factories in Beijing), tissue flexographic ink, newspaper flexographic ink (photosensitive resin version), alcohol soluble intaglio printing ink Waterless soybean oil offset printing (environmental protection) ink and other new inks. Ink development has the following driving forces:

1 Technological progress, the production of new materials and new processes promote the development of inks, such as jet inks, which have developed rapidly in recent years

2. The promotion of the market, people's new needs, or fierce market competition promote the progress of ink, and domestic more shows that it is the price competition of the same type and grade products

3. With the promotion of environmental protection laws and regulations, there are no perfect laws and regulations on printing ink in China, but there are regulatory restrictions on the content of heavy metals, residual solvents in packaging, and other VOC limit standards in other related aspects such as food packaging. It can be predicted that the corresponding laws and regulations will be formulated and promulgated soon

II. Domestic ink production and market situation

China's total ink output accounts for 5 ~ 6% of the world's ink, ranking fourth, behind the United States, Japan and Germany, and increasing at a rate of more than 10% every year. According to statistics, the consumption of printing ink in China was 220000 tons in 2001, 242100 tons in 2002 and 274600 tons in 2003; the output was 205000 tons in 2001, 220000 tons in 2002 and 244600 tons in 2003. In China, offset ink has the largest share, accounting for 40.45% of the market. It is reliable, with an annual growth rate of nearly 6%. Flexographic ink is growing at a rate of 5% per year. Intaglio ink has maintained a steady growth, and silk printing ink has a growth trend The demand for alcohol soluble ink and water-based ink will grow rapidly

an interesting feature of the distribution of China's printing industry and ink production enterprises is that all manufacturers consciously or unconsciously take the road of specialization. The top 10 ink manufacturers are basically offset ink manufacturers, or manufacturers of gravure ink, and take the amount of individual varieties of ink as their main products. Ink factories developed in recent years, such as Zhongshan Yeshi Ink Co., Ltd. (gravure ink) Zhejiang yongzai Chemical Co., Ltd. (gravure ink) basically takes the road of specialization and market promotion. In recent years, domestic packaging and printing bases have also developed rapidly in Jiangsu and Zhejiang regions, the Pearl River Delta and Chaoshan regions in Guangdong. In recent years, driven by the packaging and printing industry, ink has developed rapidly, and there is a more obvious feature: first, the introduction of complete sets of printing equipment and ink, then the localization of ink, followed by the localization of printing equipment. Ink enterprises in Guangdong Province have also developed rapidly in recent years, and there are manufacturers with large output. Guangdong Zhaoqing Tianlong ink Chemical Co., Ltd., Shenzhen shenri Ink Co., Ltd., Guangdong Meining ink Group Co., Ltd., Zhongshan Yeshi Ink Co., Ltd., Shantou Wuxing ink factory, Jiangmen Toyo Ink Co., Ltd., Zhuhai Letong ink coating Co., Ltd., etc., especially in the late 1990s, there were dozens of ink manufacturers in Chaoshan area, and several of them had an output of more than 2000t Characteristics of domestic ink Enterprises:

1 Multinational companies and their joint ventures (less than 10) have occupied the domestic high-end market, such as Toyo, anti China, DIC, Koch, etc. their main products include offset ink plastic composite ink, newspaper printing ink, etc; Its products have good quality and high printing speed, and are suitable for packaging and printing materials printed by high-end printing machines
