Ceramic Inks Market – Snapshot

Ceramic inks can be defined as carriers of ceramic fine particle metallic oxide pigments. These inks are used in automatic application techniques. Ceramic ink is suspended in a medium so that it can have the physical consistency suitable for producing fine details. Ceramic inks are available in the form of gel or liquid.

Increase in Usage of Ceramic Inks as Decorative Materials on Ceramic Tiles

Ceramic inks are used on ceramic tiles, which are employed in the construction of buildings. These tiles are commonly used to decorate rooms and restrooms. Ceramic inks are used to print various designs on ceramic tiles. These inks are resistant to water and several other liquids. Hence, they are extensively used to print on ceramic tiles. Large amount of glass is used in the construction industry to decorate various aspects inside buildings. Ceramic inks are used to print designs on glass. Weather-resistant properties of ceramic glass make it an ideal material to print designs on decorative glass. The trend of using decorative ceramic tiles and glass in construction is expected to continue during the forecast period. This, in turn, is estimated to boost the demand for ceramic inks in the construction industry.

Limited Applications of Ceramic Inks

Ceramic inks are used for printing on ceramic tiles, ceramic tableware, and glass. Apart from these, small share of ceramic inks is employed in automotive ceramics. Ceramics are used in many other industries such as medicine, electronics, and water treatment; however, ceramic inks are not used in these applications. This is hampering the ceramic inks market. Companies are developing other uses of ceramic inks. However, this is an ongoing process.

Development of Specific Ceramic Inks for Digital Printing Creates Opportunities

Ceramic inks that are used in digital printing are costlier than those employed in analog printing. However, the amount of ceramic inks required for digital printing is more compared to that in analog printing. This is primarily because the use of digital printing is increasing across the world. Digital printing offers several advantages over analog printing, namely low cost, higher customization, mass production, environment friendliness, and rapid changes to designs.

Chemical formulations and coloring pigments used in ceramic inks for digital printing are different from those used in analog printing. However, ceramic ink manufacturers need to focus more on formulations designed for digital printing technology, as the industry moves to take advantage of digital printing by adopting digital printing technology rather than analog printing technology. These specifically developed ceramic inks also need to cover a wider range of colors and vibrancy so that digital printing can give a wider range of designs. Additionally, ceramic inks designed specifically for digital printing need to withstand a wide range of temperatures and weathers.

Digital Printing Technology Commonly Used in Market

Digital printing technology was developed after analog printing technology. However, it has managed to replace analog printing technology and become the primary technology employed in the printing of ceramic products such as tableware and tiles. Research and development in digital printing technology has gradually made it usable for various purposes such as ceramic tiles, tableware, and glass printing. The share of digital printing technology has increased due to the rise in applications. Digital technology allows a wide range of colors, combinations, designs, and textures to be printed onto products. The ability to feed complex designs into the computerized system also allows development of considerably complicated designs.
