Market Insights

Technological Advancements in Digital Printing Drive Digital Printing Packaging Market

In the field of packaging, printing, and labeling, technological developments are rising rapidly. Digital printing offers packaging personalization, production flexibility, and saves packaging time to market. Due to various equipment improvements and technological developments, brand owners and packaging converters are preferring digital printing. Innovation in digital printing offers solutions for companies to reduce production duration from months to days. Technological advancements in digital printing packaging also help in branding and marketing. Direct prints on packaging provide a unique look to the products.

Digital printing packaging is prominently used in various industries, including food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and personal care & cosmetics. Owing to significant technological developments in inkjet and electrophotography technologies, digital printing is emerging as one of the cost-effective and easily accessible methods for printing. Digital printing packaging is majorly used to pack food and beverage products. For food and beverages and other consumer goods, the digital printing technology provides high-quality packaging with the benefits of personalization, fast turnaround, reduced waste, and on-the-fly modification to pack designs. In the pharmaceuticals & cannabis sector, manufacturers are increasingly turning to digital printing to accommodate demands for localized packaging, legally required variable data, and quick & frequent changeover. Equipment advancements have made it possible to digitally print various packaging materials and formats, including food wrappers, aluminum beverage cans, and metalized-film pouches. Thus, increasing technological advancements in the digital printing packaging sector are driving the market growth.

Ink Type-Based Insights

Based on ink type, the digital printing packaging market is categorized into solvent-based, UV-based, aqueous, and others. The solvent-based segment held the largest share of the market in 2021 and the aqueous segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Solvent-based inks are composed of pigment and resin (binder), which forms a solid component of the ink, and solvent as a carrier agent. The solvent-based ink is sprayed on a substrate during the digital printing process, which leads to the evaporation of the solvent, leaving behind a dry layer of ink. Solvent-based inks are relatively inexpensive. It has a wide range of digital print applications on varied substrates such as foils, films, and hard plastics, including biaxially oriented polyropylene (BOPP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), glossy boxes or cardboard, metals, and other high-density polyethylene materials. Solvent-based ink provides durability on BOPP, and other substrates, including PE, PET, aluminum foil, and PVC. Many digital print providers worldwide adhere to international and domestic regulations for packaging printing. It has encouraged ink manufacturers to formulate compliant products to meet customer demand. For instance, in October 2022, Kao Collins Inc. launched Swiss Ordinance compliant solvent-based ink in five colors—red, yellow, blue, green, and violet. These inks are formulated and manufactured according to the EUPIA (Globalan Printing Ink Association) Guidelines on Printing Inks.
