Current situation and development trend of the mos

  • Detail

The current situation and development trend of printing ink market at home and abroad I. the situation of the world ink market at present, the global ink industry continues to grow. Large international companies have used joint ventures, cooperation, acquisitions and other methods to improve the expansion of the four industrial chains of ethylene, propylene, carbon 4 and aromatic hydrocarbons. Many international companies have declined in the domestic market, but have developed in China and the Asia Pacific. In 2003, the enterprises with annual sales of more than 1billion US dollars in global ink include: big Japan ink/sunchem 4.4 billion US dollars, Japan flint ink 1.4 billion US dollars, Japan Toyo ink 1billion US dollars; Those with annual sales of more than 300million US dollars include: German businesses still focus on fast in and fast out, BASF US $762million, Japan sakatainx US $742million, Switzerland sikaba US $725million, Japan Tokyo printing ink US $454million, Germany hub has set up a general manager Award Fund ergroup US $380million, Japan sikwell US $380million, Japan intecinc US $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 ink-jet products (continuous ink-jet CIJ, dropping DOD on demand), conductive ink (with factories in Beijing), tissue flexographic ink, newspaper flexographic ink (photosensitive resin version), alcohol soluble intaglio printing ink, anhydrous soybean oil offset printing (environmental protection) ink and other new inks. The development of ink has the following driving forces:

1. technological progress, the emergence of new materials and new processes promote the development of ink, such as jet ink, which has developed rapidly in recent years

2. the promotion of the market, the new demand of people, or the fierce market competition promote the progress of ink. In China, it is more indicated that it is the price competition of the same type and grade of products

3. with the promotion of environmental protection laws and regulations, there are no perfect laws and regulations on ink in China, but there are regulatory restrictions on the content of heavy metals, residual solvents in packaging materials 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 printing ink has the largest share, accounting for 40.45% of the market, with an annual growth rate of nearly 6%. Flexographic printing ink is growing at an annual rate of 5%. Intaglio printing ink maintains a steady growth. Silk printing ink has a growth trend, and the demand for alcohol soluble printing ink and water-based printing ink will grow rapidly

an interesting feature of the distribution of China's printing industry and ink manufacturers is that all manufacturers consciously or unconsciously take the road of specialization. The top 10 ink manufacturers are basically offset printing ink manufacturers, or manufacturers of gravure ink, and take the ink volume of individual varieties as their main products. The 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, the Pearl River Delta of Guangdong and Chaoshan. In recent years, the printing ink has developed rapidly driven by the packaging and printing industry, and all of them have an obvious feature that they first introduce complete sets of printing equipment and printing ink, then localize the printing ink, and then localize the printing equipment. Ink enterprises in Guangdong Province have also developed rapidly in recent years. The manufacturers with large output include 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 Dongyang Ink Co., Ltd., Zhuhai Letong ink coating Co., Ltd, In particular, there were dozens of ink manufacturers in Chaoshan area in the late 1990s, and several of them produced 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, Gaoshi, etc. their main products include offset ink plastic composite ink, 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. And the high-speed printing of newspapers. Its annual total ink output is about 10120000 tons

2. a large number of private enterprises (more than 1000) have occupied the low-end market. Their main products are carton ink (mainly water-based low-grade), Gravure plastic ink, silk screen printing ink, etc. Its product quality is guaranteed to a certain extent, and it is mostly used in the packaging and printing of goods demanded by the general public by domestic medium and low-grade printing machines, such as cartons, food bags, shopping bags, etc. It is difficult to calculate the total annual ink output, which is estimated to be 10000 tons. Well run private ink enterprises do not seek perfection, but develop their own characteristics

3. state owned enterprises can produce all kinds of inks, mainly traditional products, and have certain competitiveness in mid-range products. At present, with the restructuring of the enterprise, it has become one of the above-mentioned two types of enterprises, leaving a declining Road, with an annual total output of about 40000 ~ 50000 tons

III. Development Trend of domestic inks

in recent years, with the popularization of technology and market competition, many traditional state-owned enterprises in China; The leading edge of ink technology has gradually lost, and the cost advantage of other private enterprises' products has also been revealed, and their market share has been continuously expanded. However, some traditional state-owned enterprises have failed to keep up with the technological transformation of the industry, and the technology has failed to keep up with the changes of the market. Therefore, the situation has also changed, that is, we have changed from others to others. Moreover, due to the popularization of product technology and the homogenization of product quality, product competition has gradually become the competition of product price and service quality. The success of private enterprises is to take the market driven road. The development idea of ink is:

1. develop ink products suitable for the market, especially launch competitive products with low price and good quality, and occupy the middle and low-end market, such as paper offset printing ink, plastic surface printing ink and internal printing ink

2. develop environment-friendly inks, such as alcohol soluble intaglio printing ink, waterless soybean oil offset printing (environment-friendly) ink, water-based ink (of which water-based plastic ink is an environment-friendly product supported by Guangdong Province) and UV/EB flexo printing ink

3. develop high value-added ink products, such as industrial inkjet products (continuous inkjet CIJ, DOD dripping on demand), conductive ink, anti-counterfeiting safety ink, etc

there are many kinds of inks with different uses, and printing with inks is also a technology, so the technical service of inks is particularly important. The service provider should not only be familiar with ink, but also be familiar with printing technology. For example, what are the advantages of an ink, where it is used, where customers are, and how to use it to reflect the advantages of the product? Raw material manufacturers are also developing raw material formulas with faster response

we should find out the customers' satisfaction with our product quality and service (including dealers, manufacturers, individual consumers, etc.) and understand the customers' opinions on the product:

whether the customer service (such as supply channels, delivery, product use guidance, introduction of similar products, etc.) is satisfactory

whether to provide new products suitable for customer requirements

product quality (such as product quality indicators, advancement, stability, and deficiencies):

whether the speed of information reflected by customers is satisfactory, and whether the after-sales service is satisfactory

whether the process equipment used by the customer is reasonable, and whether there is any reference or improvement

gradually form a market (customer) centered and provide appropriate ink products according to customers' needs, so as to improve customers' satisfaction with ink products and services, and expand the market share of ink

IV. conclusion

in the past decade or so, the quality and quantity of China's ink products have undergone tremendous changes, but China is still a developing country. The per capita consumption of printed matter is still very low, only 5% of that of developed countries. The use of ink is also very low. In the next 5 to 10 years, China's national economy will maintain rapid development, and the great development of ink is also obvious. In the next few years, the development of China's ink industry should not only increase products, but also focus on adjusting product structure, improving production concentration, increasing research and development, improving scientific and technological content, quality and product stability, so as to meet the needs of today's multi-color, high-speed, fast drying, pollution-free and low consumption modern printing
