Global Alcohol-based Ink Binder Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

An alcohol-based ink binder is a type of adhesive used in inks to help them stick to paper. Alcohol-based ink binders are important because they help keep the ink on the paper, which helps produce clear, legible text or images.


Polyurethane (PU) is a polymer, which is manufactured by the catalytic reaction of an organic compound with hydrogen. The most commonly used raw materials for manufacturing PU include tetrahydrofuran, 1-butene, and 2-methylnaphthalene. It has high durability and low permeability to water vapor or gases; it also has excellent weather resistance properties.


Acrylic is a colorless, odorless, water-soluble polymer. It has a high molecular weight and is produced from the esterification of alkanoic acid with acrylonitrile. The most commonly used type of acrylic in alcohol-based ink binders market is methyl methacrylate (MMA), which has 60% of acrylic monomer content by weight.

Application Insights:

Surface printing was the dominant application segment in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Alcohol-based ink binders are used for various applications, such as labeling, promotional giveaways, and brand protection. The growing popularity of this method of printing on various products is expected to drive demand over the forecast period.

Ink binders are also used for inside printing applications on paper and other substrates. These products offer high adhesion properties which make them suitable for use in currency notes, security documents, brochures & magazines covers as well as books & pamphlets binding purposes. High demand from publishing industry is anticipated to fuel market growth during the estimated time frame.

Other popular applications include product packaging (boxes/cartons), industrial printings (ovens/heating equipment) and technical documentation (handbooks).

Regional Analysis:

North America alcohol-based ink binder market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for high quality, environment-friendly and cost-effective printing inks. The region accounted for a volume share of more than 30% in 2017 owing to the presence of key companies such as PPG Industries, Inc.; Eastman Chemical Co.; and Henkel AG & Co. KGaA.

The U.S., being one of the most developed nations with well-established infrastructure has become an attractive market for various industries such as packaging, automotive etc.

Asia Pacific is projected to be one of the fastest growing regions due its developing economy coupled with increasing industrialization especially in countries like China.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for alcohol-based ink binders in the packaging and labeling industry as they offer high performance and durability.
  • Rising demand from the publishing sector for alcohol-based ink binders owing to their superior printing properties.
  • Growing popularity of alcohol-based ink binders in the graphic arts industry as they provide excellent color vibrancy and image clarity.
  • Increasing use of these binders in digital printing applications as they offer superior resistance to fading over time.
