Analysis and Prospect of global ink manufacturing industry structure

I. ink output and sales

entering the 21st century, the global ink manufacturing industry has been in turmoil and mergers, but in recent years, the overall level of global ink production has not been affected by it, and it has increased steadily. The statistics of the world ink industry in 2001 specifically describe the production and sales of the world ink industry in the new century. At the same time of structural changes in China's ink industry, the production capacity is also gradually improving, and has ranked in the forefront of the same industry in the world. China's ink output has ranked fourth in the world, indicating that China's ink industry is developing rapidly

II. Current situation of ink manufacturing industry

after turbulence, mergers and acquisitions, the international ink manufacturing industry formed a steady development situation in 2001. In recent years, foreign ink manufacturers and their chemical material suppliers as well as the printing industry have been carrying out acquisition strategies. They began to merge as early as 1999, and have changed the pattern of the ink manufacturing industry. Ink production often produces unacceptable odor and smoke. Competition and challenges between enterprises and chemical material manufacturing enterprises have emerged, thus accelerating the steady development of the global ink industry in the new century

Japan DIC ink Chemical Co., Ltd., an ink manufacturer that can greatly reduce the production cost of enterprises and ranks first in the world, not only merged with Sun Chemical Company of the United States, but also signed a letter of intent with coats lorilleux company in June 1999. At that time, coats company ranked third in the world with a sales volume of 890 million US dollars; After the merger of coats and the $2.5 billion of Sun Chemical, the total sales volume was $4.79 billion. The total sales volume of the world ink industry market is about 12billion US dollars, and the sales volume of the merged DIC ink Chemical Co., Ltd. in Japan accounts for about 40% of the total world sales volume. It can be said that DIC is the world's largest ink manufacturer. In 2001, its ink sales were US $4.21 billion, ranking first in the world ink industry. In addition, the chemical division also produces organic pigments and unsaturated resin products, with annual sales of about 8.8 billion US dollars. Now, the company has targeted the Chinese market and has invested in the first phase of the production of organic pigments and printing inks in Nantong Economic and Technological Development Zone, Jiangsu Province, China, with an investment of US $30million, and the final investment is expected to reach US $70million

flint ink company, the second largest ink manufacturer in the world, has merged two major ink companies in the world, namely Sacramento ink company and ink company, in 1999, which has expanded the enterprise scale and product field of flint company. The company has also identified the big market in China, and established a web offset printing ink manufacturing plant with an annual capacity of 10000 tons in Beijing Daxing, which was put into operation in 2003

Toyo Ink Co., Ltd., which ranks third, signed an agreement with sadata INX to form a strategic alliance partner on November 15, 1999. At that time, the sales volume of Toyo Ink Co., Ltd. in Japan was 876million US dollars and that of Sakata ink was 570million US dollars. After the alliance, another major ink manufacturer in the world was formed

chemical material manufacturing enterprises for ink also have mergers and acquisitions. For example, in January 1999, American International Paper Co., Ltd. acquired unio camp and established Arizona chemical company; Eastman company of the United States merged with lawer resin company

III. ink product structure

(1) offset printing ink

the production of offset printing ink in the United States has been in a stable state. There are 96 companies producing offset printing ink, accounting for about 1/2 of all manufacturers, mainly because the plate making in the world's advanced countries is fast and convenient, and CTP technology is used at the beginning, which has the advantages of high printing quality, wide range of paper use, large print elasticity and so on, Offset printing inks still account for about 40% of the total in the world. In addition to the decline of traditional sheet fed offset printing inks, web offset printing inks, especially thermosetting offset printing inks, are still growing rapidly, mainly due to the current increase in the printing volume of newspapers, magazines, textbooks and other color publications

(2) flexographic and gravure inks

from the current situation of foreign flexographic and gravure inks for packaging and printing, which form a tensile experimental space through double columns and worktables, they are still in an upward and developing trend

(3) other inks

the demand for packaging, special and functional inks is also increasing, such as uv+eb inks, which are used more widely in the United States and Japan, and UV inks in the United Kingdom are more common than before. Among the 192 ink manufacturers in the United States, many small and medium-sized ink enterprises have invested in the production of uv+eb ink since 1999, and the consumption of printing ink for special purposes, such as anti-counterfeiting, heat transfer, inkjet and so on, is also increasing, which has become the top priority of implementing the innovation driven development strategy. In addition, there are 34 printing ink manufacturers, of which 5 are manufacturers specializing in printing ink
