Ceramic inks are simply carriers of ceramic fine particle metallic oxide pigments (not raw colorants but prefixed stain powders) that are used in automatic application techniques. Inks must have a physical consistency suitable for producing fine detail; this requires that they be suspended in a medium (as opposed to just water). Depending on the application technique, these mediums can be thick and flow like a printing ink. Or they can have a gel consistency that holds itself in place after application. Or they can be made from Nano-size particle stains that stay in suspension in a highly fluid medium (for inkjet printing). They can be water or oil based. They may need to dry quickly, slowly and may not need to dry at all before firing. But the objective is the same: Tune a carrier for the application process so as to achieve a layer of metallic oxide based powder that will produce color exactly where desired and with crisp, well defined color edges.
Scope of the Report:
First, in terms of consumption, the ceramic ink was 46 K MT in 2015. And it is anticipated to reach 61K MT by 2022.
Second, ceramic ink has a high concentration. The top six companies account for more than 55.39 % of market share. Dowstone, CREATE-TIDE, Mindst, Esmalglass-Itaca, Huilong and Ferro are the tycoons of ceramic ink. Dowstone is the largest manufacturer, with the market share of 12.81% in 2016.
Third, compared with international leading players, Chinese domestic manufacturers still have certain gap, both in the product performance and market share. As the development of China economic and ...
