NEW YORK, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

US Packaging Inks, Coatings & Additives Industry

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0170604/US-Packaging-Inks-Coatings--Additives-Industry.html

US demand to exceed $2.5 billion in 2013

US demand for packaging coatings, inks and additives is forecast to reach more than $2.5 billion in 2013, with volume rising to 1.5 billion pounds. Value gains are expected to decelerate from the pace of the 2003-2008 period due to expected moderation in pricing. However, market volume is projected to accelerate through the forecast period due to improving growth in packaging production. Overall demand will benefit from trends favoring environmentally friendly packaging materials, which will support the development of new products designed to be sustainable and efficient while also offering high performance characteristics.

More expensive, greener products to boost coatings market value

Packaging coatings market value will benefit from growing demand for more environmentally friendly products, such as powder and radiation-curable coatings, which provide greater efficiency. While increased efficiency will limit volume gains, these formulations are priced higher than conventional products, thus supporting overall market value. Additionally, growing use of coatings that provide advanced performance characteristics, such as increased barrier properties and moisture resistance, will promote advances. However, gains will be restrained by the fact that coatings continue to find much of their use in the more mature packaging segments such as metal, paperboard and glass containers.

Plastic's key role as packaging substrate to benefit coatings, inks & additives

Among the various packaging substrates that use coatings, inks and additives, plastic represents the largest and fastest growing category due to the continued expansion of plastic packaging materials at the expense of other substrates, such as paper and paperboard, metal, and glass. Coatings and additives will benefit from increasing barrier requirements, as plastic packaging is developed for a widening array of applications. The growing use of flexible plastic packaging will support demand for inks, as this type of packaging can be printed on directly, without the use of an intervening substrate.

Flexographic to remain leading packaging ink type

Flexographic inks will remain the leading type of packaging ink through the forecast period, supported by the growing popularity of flexible packaging, which utilizes flexographic printing as its process of choice. Smaller and increasingly sophisticated job runs will also favor flexographic inks, based on improvements in both quality and consistency that have enabled them to compete with other ink types.

Packaging additives to be fastest growing segment

Packaging additives are projected to achieve the most rapid gains through the forecast period, with plastic packaging accounting for the vast majority of demand. Additives can be used to improve the clarity, strength, shatter resistance and barrier resistance of plastic. Additionally, source reduction efforts will promote the use of thinner materials, which will aid additives demand, as the use of less resin is offset by greater additive requirements.

Study coverage
