Water-based ink includes pigment or dyes in a colloidal suspension with water as the solvent. While water is the primary solvent used in the production of water-based inks, the inks can contain other co-solvents to reduce the time and heat required to cure the ink film on cloth. Water-based inks have a higher viscosity stability on press because water evaporates slowly. The demand for water-based inks has been increasing due to a rise in environmental and safety concerns, growth in flexible packaging, and increased utilization in screen printing.

Flexible packaging is a type of packaging or any part of the packaging made from a non-rigid structure, and it can be easily molded into different shapes. This type of packaging allows for better transportation of the packaged goods, along with enabling customizable designs and better life span. As per the Flexible Packaging Association, the flexible packaging is considered to be the second largest contributor to the growth of packaging segment in the US, as it garnered ~19% of the packaging market in the country, which was worth US$ 170 billion in US in 2018. The inks used in flexible packaging help enhance the overall graphic representation and maintain the quality of imprinted images during phases such as manufacturing, packaging, and transportation, as well as at the time of the final use of the product.

Earlier, solvent-based inks were extensively in use instead of water-based inks, due to drawbacks associated with the latter, such as lower printing speeds, slower water evaporation, improper wetting mechanism, and imperfect printability on critical substrates. However, the demand for water-based inks has grown incessantly owing to increasing focus on sustainability. The advancements in printing techniques such as deployment of improved resins, better ink formulation, and high-performance printing equipment have helped printing manufacturers to overcome the drawbacks of water-based inks. These developments have enabled the water-based inks to meet the performance standards associated with flexible packaging materials. Marabu is involved in production and supply of water-based inkjet inks used in flexible packaging of the food & beverages industry products as well as the consumer goods industry products, such as cardboard boxes, toys, and digitally printed wallpapers.

Water-Based Inks Market by Resin Type

Based on resin type, the water-based inks market is categorized into acrylic, polyester, maleic, and others. In 2019, the acrylic segment dominated the market. Acrylic resin is a thermosetting or thermoplastic plastic derived from acrylic acid, methacrylic acid, or other related compounds. Acrylic resin is weatherproof. This makes it ideal for outdoor applications. In solid form, acrylic resin can last for decades. It does not yellow when exposed to sunlight, even after many years. Acrylic resins are preferred over other resins such as polyester and polyurethane, as they offer excellent solvent resistance, good plasticizer resistance, high flexibility, and impact resistance. They also offer excellent color, high gloss, and retention of performance properties at high temperatures. Epoxy resin is used in acrylic resin to enhance the molecular interactions between binder molecules in ink.

Impact of COVID-19 on Water-Based Inks Market

The COVID-19 outbreak is adversely affecting economies and industries in various countries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns.
