Global Ink Prices To Increase

03 Jan 2011 1:00 PM | Keiji Obata (Administrator)
Due to the rising cost of raw materials, ink prices are going to be increased. Over the past six to nine months, the price of some raw materials has risen by more than 100 percent.

Raw materials like gum rosin and phenolic resin, are particularly troubling for ink makers because of low crop yields, low stocks and increased demand from non-ink industries. Increased environmental pressure has seen producers of pigments like those from India and China leave the market. Some pigments like blue, yellow and red could be in short supply. Waterless inks will not be excluded from these price increases. All of which puts even more printers under economic pressure.
