in 1999, a total of 250000 tons of packaging inks were produced in Europe. Taking BASF as an example, the production volume has reached 55000 tons, accounting for 22% of the market share, with an annual growth rate of 7%; In that year, the reported sales value reached 380million marks (including 194.3 million euros), with a growth rate of 6.2%

4. Development of packaging ink in Germany

packaging ink is a new product, which includes several varieties:

① water-based flexible relief printing ink for paper and corrugated boxes

② new color liquid crystal ink, which can be used for high-quality paperboard and label printing

③ flexible relief ink series can be used for the printing of beverage packaging (such as beverages), such as ink without stupid

④ the technical development of UV ink and its varnish can be used for UV drying printing, which occupies a certain share in the German market

the market growth rate of various UV inks is as follows:

① the share for UV rotary offset printing is 10-14%

② the growth rate of UV sheet fed offset printing for packaging and printing is 100-150%

③ UV sheet fed offset printing dedicated to film printing also occupies a certain market share

④ the growth rate of UV rotary offset printing for labels is 100-150%

⑤ for UV lithographic label printing, the growth is stable, the market share is small, in the middle

⑥ the growth rate of UV flexographic ink used for film printing is low

the development of UV printing inks in Germany is as follows:

① in terms of printing process requirements, when used for high-speed printing, it is required to dry quickly

② when UV rotary offset printing is in continuous printing, the tensile strength is required to be low; When UV single paper offset printing is used for packaging, it is required to enhance the fastness of the corrugated board of the paper

③ UV label printing ink requires improving the adhesion h force of the ink, and it is more difficult to improve the adhesion force printed on film materials, such as OPP or Pa

the brand value of the global printing industry is reflected in the fact that the products can reach the global standard quality, as well as the raw materials, substrates and inks that can be produced with high and new technology. The quality level of printing ink in the world is reflected in the latest printing machinery level and quality in Europe

II. Asia

1 Overview of China's printing and ink industry

① China's ink industry has a considerable scale. The number of production enterprises has grown to more than 300, distributed in more than 20 provinces, cities and autonomous regions across the country. There are more than 20000 employees, of which engineering and technical personnel account for 8% of the total number of employees, and there are more than 30 key backbone enterprises with considerable scale and strength. The comprehensive production capacity of ink is 220000-250000 tons per year, accounting for 5-6% of the world's ink output. The quality of some major products in China's ink industry has approached or reached the advanced level of similar foreign products. In addition to basically meeting the needs of the domestic printing, packaging and decoration industry, the products are also exported to more than 50 countries and regions, such as Manchuria, Australia, Taiwan, Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, the United States and so on. However, compared with the advanced level of foreign countries, there is still a considerable gap

② changes in the pattern of China's printing industry after China's entry into WTO. In order to promote consumption and encourage investment, a series of tax policies have a significant impact on the printing industry. For example, in 1999, the state relaxed the import restrictions on high-speed printing machines, making the printing equipment a whole level. Therefore, the policy has a significant impact on the domestic printing industry for the production of lightweight polyurethane and honeycomb composite reinforced materials

besides automobile and petroleum, printing is the tertiary industry in developed countries in the world. Based on this calculation, the development space of China's printing industry is undoubtedly huge. At present, we are entering the second period of high-speed economic growth. It is expected that there will be no problem in maintaining an 8% growth rate in the next 8-10 years without human force majeure. This will give the printing industry, as the tertiary industry, more than 10% annual growth space, and make China's printing industry keep pace with the times

③ at present, China has 150000 printing enterprises of all kinds, with more than 3 million employees, publishing and printing 140000 kinds of books, 8000 kinds of magazines, 2000 kinds of newspapers, securities, packaging and decoration and other colorful printed materials every year, which has entered the ranks of the world's printing powers. However, there is still a gap between China's printing industry and the world's printing developed countries in terms of ideology, overall technical equipment, personnel quality, management and comprehensive benefits

④ according to relevant statistics, relevant Chinese departments predict that China's packaging industry will increase at an annual rate of 8% from 2001 to 2005, and the output value of packaging industry will reach 320billion yuan in 2005

by 2005, the output value of paper packaging products is expected to reach 20million tons, with an average annual growth rate of 9%; The output of plastic packaging products is 5.04 million tons, with an average annual growth rate of 8%; The output of glass packaging products is 6.05 million tons, with an average annual growth rate of 6%; The output of metal packaging products is 2.88 million tons, with an average annual growth rate of 8%; The packaging printing volume is 494billion, with an average annual growth rate of 9%; The market demand for packaging machinery will reach 670000 sets, with an average annual growth rate of 8%

2. Japan's printing ink production

compared with 1998, Japan's printing ink production in 1999 increased again. The largest increase in production is in the offset printing market. In terms of output, the production of these printing inks increased by 7%. However, metal printing inks decreased by 18% (see Table 1)

3. Printing

① the printed Hindustan ink company (sinterstein) and resin Co., Ltd. (Hirl) want to establish a production base in California, USA. To this end, a subsidiary micro ink Corp. has been established, which plans to carry out the pre production (semi-finished products) of ink in India first, and then transport it to the United States for reprocessing. The business policy is that it can be transferred to other places in the future, such as major ink markets in Europe and Asia. Hirl expects a significant increase in production capacity abroad in 2002. The ink factory can be put into operation in Silvassa in the shortest time, and the annual production capacity is expected to reach 57450 metric tons

② Coates of India Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as IL)

Coates of India Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as IL), the Japanese branch of Greater Japan ink chemical group (DIC), recently built an ink factory in ahmedabed, India. The scale of the design scheme is that the final production capacity is 12000 metric tons, and the final product is printed black ink. Then we will produce 200 tons per month, and the infrastructure will be completed by the end of August or September. The following relevant data from Swiss B ü hle are some solutions we have made for technical problems. R Buhler's equipment will be used to equip the factory

③ flint ink company entered the Indian market

flint ink company (a branch of Michigan ink manufacturer in the United States), completed the plan to receive most of the equity of India's incowax company. A major step for the United States is in the subcontinent. In the printing place, incowax is a major supplier of liquid inks for the packaging industry

flint ink and incowax have reached an agreement to hold 51% of the shares. Mahony, the European president of flint ink, said that after a period of time, his share would be increased to 76%

incowax has more than 100 professional employees, providing solvent based and water-based gravure and flexographic inks for the Indian flexible packaging market. The company has only five production plants and two warehouses. Serve the entire Indian market. The ink products produced are also exported to the Middle East and Southeast Asia

mahony said, "because we are optimistic about the market prospect of India, we decided to invest in incowax. It is estimated that the scale of India's printing ink industry is 6 billion rupees (equivalent to 884 million pounds/1.285 billion dollars) 。 This investment is also an important way for us to enter the Indian and Southeast Asian markets

flint ink company invested its own technology into incowax company to maintain the same products as flint ink, which is consistent with the high standards of flint ink company
