The shifting consumer preferences towards digital printing technology on account of its high quality, optimized and faster turnaround time, and lower printing cost represents one of the key factors driving the market. Additionally, the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and the rising need for medical imaging processes are catalyzing the demand for these chemicals to achieve reliable results. Apart from this, the growth in the printing and packaging industry is creating a positive market outlook. Imaging chemicals are used in processes, such as offset printing, flexography, and screen printing. Furthermore, the burgeoning e-commerce, retail, and consumer goods sectors is positively influencing the market. Moreover, various leading imaging chemical manufacturers are focusing on innovation and product development to expand their consumer base and market reach. They are also investing in research and development (R&D) activities to improve the performance, efficiency, and environmental sustainability of their products, which include developing chemicals with reduced environmental impact, safer formulations, and improved image quality. Additionally, the growing emphasis on reducing the use of hazardous chemicals and adopting environment friendly alternatives is propelling the market growth. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 15.1 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 4.62% during 2024-2032.
