Analysis: UV inkjet ink market trend analysis

in the era of technological revolution with the transformation of digital printing mode, inkjet printing has developed rapidly. As an environmental friendly and green printing method, UV ink-jet printing has rapidly increased its market share, especially in the UV ink used in flat-panel UV ink-jet printing equipment

four years ago, at the 2009 China Print Exhibition, only enterprises were involved in the field of UV ink-jet. However, since the second half of 2012, with the strong development of pure flat-panel UV ink-jet equipment, UV ink-jet began to enter the attention of various equipment manufacturers and end users. At an inkjet printing exhibition held in Guangzhou in March this year, the competitive situation in the domestic inkjet printing market has taken shape. This competition is not only reflected in UV lithography equipment, but also in the application of LDE technology in the field of inkjet printing

compared with domestic inkjet printing, foreign inkjet printing pays more attention to the research and development of inkjet technology, especially the research and development of nozzle, UV lamp/led lamp and digital inkjet ink. The development of UV ink abroad started earlier. UV ink products in Europe totaled 20500 tons in 2000. Compared with Europe and America, the UV ink market in Asia started late, but grew rapidly. When reviewing China print 2009, the global ink market reached US $5.8 billion. According to the latest survey report of pirainternational, the global market scale of environmentally friendly (environment-friendly) inks is expected to reach $7.2 billion in 2014, with an average annual compound growth rate of 4.5%. In terms of application, foreign countries mainly go far in some small batch and variable data printing. In China, inkjet printing is widely used, such as flooring, ceramics, labels, packaging and decoration

in the future, inkjet printing will develop in the direction of standardization, popularization and specialization. For the technology of inkjet printing, whether it is nozzle technology, inkjet ink technology, uv/led lamp technology, or inkjet printing equipment itself, it will be standardized. For example, in the future, the nozzle will develop in a thinner and thinner direction, and the ink dot will be smaller and smaller. According to the size of ink dots, the development of inkjet inks will also move towards standardization. Behind the consistency of ink dots, the color and other characteristics of inkjet inks will not change. The research and development of the standardization of inkjet ink and the standardization of ink curing speed will be the focus of the development of inkjet ink in the future. It is also one of the important universal experimental machines of Agfa, which are mainly used for the tensile, contraction, zigzag, shear, puncture, yield, elastic modulus and other mechanical properties of materials, metal materials, non-metallic materials and products

Agfa printing art has been committed to the research and development of high-quality UV inks. Not only involved in the research and development of ink-jet equipment, but also has an ink research and development team with polyester film and environmentally friendly shopping bags as the main products. Agfa began to develop UV inks in 1992. Its ink has passed the global ISO 9001:2000, ISO14001:2004 environmental protection standards and toy safety standards. Agfa UV ink has the characteristics that the odor is close to zero, the storage life can be as long as 18 months, and the deformation of each part on the same section is not uniform. At the same time, Agfa UV ink loss is the lowest in its class, only grams per square meter. The 6-color Agfa UV ink can match 90% of Pantone color, and the color degree of prints can reach more than two years outdoors. Since last year, many domestic inkjet equipment manufacturers have carried out in-depth cooperation with Agfa in UV inkjet ink. Agfa UV ink products are not only leading in environmental protection, ink saving and durability, but also widely cited. The successful printing of AGFA UV ink on leather, glass, wood, metal and other substrates has greatly expanded the possibility of innovation and profitability for end users

introduction: Agfa, headquartered in Belgium, has branches in more than 40 countries around the world and agents in more than 100 countries around the world. According to the latest data, Agfa's operating revenue in 2012 was 3.091 billion euros, up 2.2% from 3.031 billion euros in 2011. The operating profit in 2012 was 870million euros, up 2.8% from 846million euros in 2011. It is worth mentioning that under the current difficult economic environment, the operating revenue of AGFA printing art in 2012 reached 1.652 billion euros, up 3.5% from 1.596 billion euros in 2011
