UV/EB Raw Materials Market

SpecialChem / Ink World Magazine – May 28, 2008

The UV ink market overall fared well in 2007, according to suppliers to the market. "We see the various segments of the energy cured ink market continuing to grow at a rate slightly greater than GDP in the both the EU and U.S. and at a generally faster rate than competitive technologies," said Harald Boner, technical marketing, pigments and additives division, Clariant. "While we have seen another year of double digit growth in the European and overseas markets, the environment in North America proved to be more difficult," said Marcel Gatti, vice president energy curing, Rahn Group. "The downturn in the U.S. economy and the weakening dollar has created a highly competitive market, especially in the second half of 2007, where even smaller volumes were battled for with high intensity. Nevertheless, going into 2008 we remain optimistic for UV/EB market as a whole, as it continues to benefit from above average growth rates over other technologies due to ever increasing penetration into new applications.
