core tip: as the global economy will gradually recover from the impact of covid-19, the demand for printing and packaging continues to grow, which will ensure the real growth of the flexographic printing market. Smithers' latest research

as the global economy will gradually recover from the impact of covid-19, the demand for printing and packaging continues to grow, which will ensure the real growth of the flexo printing market. Smithers' latest research shows that the flexographic supply chain must be innovated to protect the market from turning to digital printing machines

the report "the future of flexography by 2025" shows that by 2020, the global value will reach US $167.7 billion. The economic slowdown caused by the pandemic only increased slightly compared with 2019. Although not particularly optimistic, this prospect is much better than many competitive simulation processes. This is mainly due to the extensive use of flexographic printing in packaging and labeling operations. Despite the decline in demand for graphics and publications, the total printing volume will decline by as much as 10.7% by 2020, which usually remains good

with the recovery of the market, flexo printing is expected to grow at a rate of 1.6%, reaching 181.1 billion by 2025, and packaging will increase its market share. The production of graphene that can be used in many advanced materials and devices under the threat of high-throughput inkjet is a major stimulus one hour later, which also brings opportunities for printing service providers, OEMs, consumables and substrate suppliers

01. The four end-use applications of packaging

flexo printing are packaging, and a large number of paper and paperboard substrates are used

corrugated board is obviously the main end use. By 2020, its value share will reach 57%, worth 95.9 billion US dollars. It will exceed the $100billion mark by 2025. Flexible packaging accounts for one fifth of the value of flexible printing, and labels account for 8.6%. In terms of value, folding color boxes account for 5.1% of the market, and the growth of folding color boxes will accelerate in the five years to 2025

the wider availability of digital printing machines also makes more requirements for flexographic printing, which requires them to make adjustments, carry out more short-term operations, and promote OEM continuous innovation to improve response speed and turnover

02. For corrugated paperboard

although flexographic polyurethane exterior wall insulation material is gradually accepted and applied by the market with its good performance, the flexographic printing of corrugated paperboard faces the most direct competition from digital printing. The single channel digital inkjet printing equipment specially designed for corrugated paper packaging has been in use for several years. These are greatly the cost intersection between the original digital and analog printing

innovations to address this issue include adding more hybrid printers. Add some variable data printing through the inkjet station. In addition, with the improvement of printing plates and equipment, some corrugated paper printing can reach the quality comparable to offset printing and concave brush, so as to gradually snatch the printing of operations from these printers

this is consistent with the buyer placing more short version local and shelf packaging orders. Many of them use three or more colors, which brings higher prices. In 2020, the blockade caused by covid-19 also led to a surge in demand for low-quality e-commerce corrugated packaging to be delivered directly to consumers

03. For equipment

the continuous growth of equipment sales brought about by the production of corrugated boxes and folding color boxes will support the installation of more wide width flexo printing equipment during the year, as well as the corresponding growth of pasting machine devices in the processing of sheet fed materials, so as to carry out more flexible and faster post press processing
