These inks have been extensively used in the packaging sector, which is experiencing solid growth in many countries. Some of these inks are resistant to exposure to moisture, oxygen, and UV light. This type of ink helps reduce excess packaging requirement for perishables, as it provides protection from environmental exposure. However, the solvent-based inks industry is witnessing numerous challenges in several applications owing to rising demand for water-based ink. The demand for water-based and UV-based inks in several countries of North America and Europe has prominently increased in the recent past, which is negatively impacting the solvent-based industry in such regions.
