The global inkjet inks market size is set to swell in the upcoming years owing to the emergence of startups specializing in the development of innovative printing solutions, observes Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, The demand for high-quality inks is escalating worldwide as a result of the huge investments made in the diverse domains of advertising, packaging, pharmaceuticals, and food processing. To meet these requirements, several startups have come up, offering novel inks and other printing technologies. For example, US-based C3Nano develops conductive inks and films using the Nanoglue technology and its inks can be applied in various applications such as e-papers, smart windows, solar cells, and touch windows.

The company has collaborated with Hitachi Chemicals and Nissha Printing. Another example is an Israel-based startup called Landa Digital Printing has set up Nanographic Printing presses that facilitate the use of digital printing technologies for mainstream applications. The spawning of such startups in the past couple of decades has been an enriching development for the inkjet inks market.

Driving Factor

Development of Eco-friendly Inks to Open New Vistas for the Market

The throwing away of toner cartridges that contain old ink can have detrimental effects on the environment as these inks contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and heavy metals that pollute soils and water bodies. According to the European Commission, offset printing consumes nearly three million tons of fossil fuel-based inks chemicals every year. As a result, there is a growing preference for eco-friendly inks that have been derived from natural sources, devoid of chemicals and are, thus, biodegradable. For example, a study conducted by researchers from the Calcutta University in India in 2015 found that inks produced from rice bran oil and palm oil led to better results in terms of the ink’s chemical stability and print quality compared to regular hydrocarbon-based inks. Similarly, inks made from soybeans have been found to deliver richer and more accurate colors compared to petroleum-based ink. Thus, inks extracted from vegetable oils have shown enormous potential in terms of applicability and versatility, with the added benefit that they are likely to cause minimal damage to the environment.
