  • Over the short term, increasing demand for decorative glass and tiles are some factors driving the studied market's growth.
  • Conversely, high-cost involvement in shifting from analog to digital technology will likely hinder the market's growth.
  • However, technological advancements in digital printing are projected to act as an opportunity for the market shortly.
  • Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global ceramic ink market during the forecast period.

Ceramic Inks Market Trends

Ceramic Tiles is the Fastest Growing Segment

  • The fastest-growing application of the ceramic ink market is ceramic tiles. There is a need to improve the aesthetics of buildings to address the functional requirement of the customers.
  • Ceramic tiles became the most popular materials that are being used, owing to properties such as high durability, resistance to wear, color permanence, etc.
  • Over the past few years, there is a significant increase in residential construction spending, owing to which there is a rise in the demand for ceramic tiles across the globe. For instance, according to a study by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the global construction industry is expected to reach USD 8 trillion by 2030, primarily driven by China, India, and the United States. Therefore, the growing construction industry is expected to include an upside demand for ceramic tiles which further will boost the demand for ceramic inks market in the coming years.
  • India is anticipated to remain the fastest-growing G20 economy in the Asia-Pacific region. The Indian government announced a target of USD 376.5 billion in infrastructure investment over three years (2023-2025), including USD 120.5 billion for developing 27 industrial clusters and USD 75.3 billion for road, railway, and port connectivity projects.
