The global copperplate printing ink market displayed high growth in forecast period. The copperplate printing ink sales falls under intaglio printing inks market. Intaglio print typically signifies cutting grooves into a printing plate where the grooves can be a fraction of a mm wide. The plate is covered in ink and ink is wiped of the surface of the grooves but traces of ink remains in grooves. When a paper is placed on the plate, the etchings are transferred from the plate onto the paper. Applications include use of printing ink in postage stamps and currency notes.
Thus, intaglio print making techniques resemble image imprints whereby image is imprinted onto the plate and later transferred onto a paper after the surface area holds on to the ink. This is how copperplate makes itself valuable by creating tears or incisions onto the surface of the plate. An incision or a deep scar on the plate surface is made by etching, engraving, drypoint, aquatint or mezzotint. Collagraphy, a method of binding materials to a hard substrate and going on to be intaglio inked is an enhanced application of copperplate printing ink market. The process of linking the print to the metal plate could take on several process hues and they may be etching, or engraving
Segmentation of copperplate printing ink market by product type includes solvent borne, water borne and oil-based. Segmentation of copperplate printing ink industry by application includes food and medicine packaging printing, cigarette packaging printing, paper-based printing and other application. A combined intaglio and photographic process is called photogravure whereby smooth continuous tones of photography was kept back but prints were unmistakably different form ordinary prints, Here prints were developed using a chemically-etched copper plate. This gave rise to photographic image to be printed on regular paper that can make it to the picture albums or books.
