Ink Manufacturing in the US
The fading relevance of print media does not occur in isolation; the transition to digital media has had serious implications for the Ink Manufacturing industry. While demand for newspaper, magazine and book publishing has suffered, industry demand has taken a hit. While weak demand from publishing industries has pressured revenue, increases in consumer spending have been a bright spot for the industry. Manufacturing industries use inks in the labeling and packaging of their products; therefore, as consumer spending has increased and shoppers have purchased more mass-produced goods, demand for ink from the manufacturing sector has increased.
Over the five years to 2022, the industry will continue to face growing competition from digital media. The rising popularity of mobile computers, tablets and e-readers, will offer consumers convenient, cost-effective and paperless methods of accessing news.
Companies in this industry manufacture inkjet cartridges and printing and inkjet inks, including lithographic, flexographic, gravure and letterpress inks. These products are sold to commercial printers, newspaper and magazine printers, office supplies wholesalers and screen printers. This industry does not include operators that manufacture writing, drawing and stamping ink, nor toner cartridges for photocopiers, fax machines and computer printers.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
