Beneficial Properties of Lithographic Printing to Ensure Lasting Market Growth
The most attractive feature of offset printing is that it provides excellent value for large-scale printing, making it the most widely utilized printing technique in the production of magazines, postcards, and stationery items. The high economic value of this printing technology is the foremost growth driver for this market.
The fundamental principle behind lithographic (or offset) printing technology is the immiscibility of oil and water. The inked image is transferred from a photographic plate to a rubber blanket, where the excess ink is removed before the image is finally printed on the designated paper. The entire process ensures a high quality of the printed material in terms of precision and clarity. This is because the lithographic printing chemicals are formulated to adhere to the rubber blankets and reproduce sharp printed images and letters.
Asia Pacific to be the Market Frontrunner Backed by the Presence of a Robust Print Industry
In North America, the demand for lithographic printing chemicals will be majorly driven by the speedy expansion of the region’s packaging industry. However, the growth of the market in the Middle East & Africa is expected to be sluggish due to the increasing availability of substitutes to traditional printing technologies.
Among regions, Asia Pacific is set to dominate the lithographic printing chemicals market share in the foreseeable future on account of the strong print industry, especially in India. Moreover, the country’s advertising industry is growing at a phenomenal pace. For example, GroupM, one of the world’s top media investment companies, forecasted that over INR 18000crore were spent on the print medium by India’s advertising industry.
Key Players to Target Emerging Application Areas to Diversify Business Activities
Key players in this market are strategically entering new application areas where the potential of deploying lithographic printing chemicals is rapidly growing.
