Market Overview:

The global digital ink market size reached US$ 2.3 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 3.7 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 6% during 2023-2028.

Digital ink refers to a type of ink that is utilized in the digital printing process. This process allows handwriting and drawings to be added electronically to substrates or documents. Some of the widely available types of digital ink include UV curing, water-based, oil-based, solvent-based, etc. They offer numerous benefits such as lesser paper requirements, easy options for copying and pasting, unlimited use of multiple-colored inks, etc. Digital ink also provides high speed and superior print quality for images, graphics, and text. Owing to this, it has several applications in automotive and technical markings, construction, packaging, promotional materials, textiles, etc.

Digital Ink Market Trends:

The elevating use of digital ink in the food packaging sector to describe the composition, shelf-life, nutritional value, pricing, etc., of the product is primarily driving the global digital ink market. Additionally, the growing demand for UV-curable digital inks on account of their beneficial characteristics, such as fast drying, low volatile organic compound (VOC) content, eco-friendly qualities, etc., is further augmenting the market growth. Besides this, the shifting consumer preferences from analog printing towards digital alternatives for shorter print runs and to meet the requirement for a faster turnaround in the graphic printing segment are acting as significant growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the increasing usage of digital ink for tile printing applications in the construction sector owing to its numerous benefits, such as rational ink management, non-contact decoration, ability to print textured surfaces and produce high-quality images, etc., is stimulating the market growth. Additionally, several automobile manufacturers are using vehicle wraps and graphic covers for marketing and promotional objectives. These covers also protect automobiles from scratches and dents during minor accidents, which, in turn, is further propelling the demand for digital inks. Numerous other factors, including the widespread availability of digital inks in varying hues, introduction of advanced technologies that eliminate waste reduction, and emerging popularity of eco-friendly ink variants, are expected to drive the global digital ink market over the forecast period.
