Polyurethane type segment is expected to account for the third largest market share in 2022.
The demand for polyurethane printing inks is experiencing notable growth due to their unique properties. Polyurethane inks, which are formulated using polyurethane resins, offer exceptional adhesion to a wide range of substrates, including plastics, metals, fabrics, and leather. Their flexibility and elasticity make them particularly well-suited for applications requiring durability and resistance to abrasion, bending, and stretching. This has led to their increasing use in industries like textiles, automotive, electronics, and packaging. Additionally, polyurethane inks are valued for their ability to create tactile and three-dimensional effects, enhancing the visual and tactile appeal of printed materials. As sustainability gains importance, manufacturers are also exploring water-based polyurethane inks that have lower VOC emissions and reduced environmental impact. With their combination of adhesion, flexibility, durability, and creative potential, polyurethane printing inks are carving out a significant presence in the market, meeting the evolving demands of industries seeking both performance and aesthetics in their printed products.
