COVID-19 Pandemic: Increasing Demand for Hand Sanitizers to Bolster Growth

As per the British Coatings Federation (BCF), the COVID-19 pandemic has declined the supply of n-propanol and ethanol in Europe. These ingredients play an important role in the manufacturing process of varnishes and printed packaging inks. At the same time, these synthetic alcohol solvents are extensively used in making hand sanitizers. Hence, the high demand for pharmaceutical, medicinal, and sanitary products would aid growth of the ceramic inks industry amid the pandemic.

Drivers & Restraints:

Surging Usage of Inkjet Printers for Industrial Applications to Propel Growth

The surging usage of inkjet printers for a wide range of applications, such as industrial and graphics is set to boost the ceramic inks market growth in the near future. These printers can be used on extended and non-flat surfaces, have limitless decoration possibilities, and provide simpler material handling. For decoration purposes, they can also be easily used. The IDC Worldwide Quarterly Hardcopy Peripheral Tracker, 1Q2020, for instance, mentioned that during the first quarter of 2019, Epson was in the leading position in the Indian inkjet printer market. It procured 56.01% of the demand by value and 46.07% by volume. However, ceramic decorators often face issues while matching the exact pantone color because of small color palettes of ceramic inks. It may hamper growth.
