    Jose, California — US Specialty Printing Consumables market is
    forecast to maintain a CAGR of 5.86% over the 2000-2010 period to reach
    US$19.4 billion by 2010. Inks and Toners  dominate the US market for

    printing industry as a whole is facing several critical issues. The
    waning number of publishing and printing institutions due to
    proliferation of Internet could pin down the profits within specialty
    consumables. Moreover, continued effort from consumers to reduce
    consumable expenses is creating an incompatible environment to increase
    the prices of consumables.

    Specialty printing consumables are
    affected positively by incredible growth in the US computer, printing
    and graphics industries. The nature of consumables is changing with the
    up gradation of printers, photography systems and also due to arrival

    color inkjet printers require compatible printing consumables.
    Increased use of color printers in various printing applications is
    resulting in burgeoning demand for specialty printing products
    including color pigments, specialty substrates, colorants and adhesives
    for specialized applications.

    cartridges that are quite expensive compared to ordinary digital inks.

    experiencing a widening installation base in the home, office, and
    other consumer markets.

    witnessing better gains in terms of growth compared to its traditional
    counterpart, specialty inks market. This is entirely the result of
    wider usage of laser printers in the commercial market along with
    enormous consumption of color toners that are high-end products.
    Meanwhile, the market for specialty inks will continue to grow on its
    edge in providing various ink types that help unique product
    differentiation. Their role in perfecting the security of important
    documents and related records will help maintain its reasonable rate of
    growth over the decade.

    an incredible ingredient in packaging cartons, decorative applications,
    greeting cards, and gift-wraps. They are exploring new dimensions of
    packaging by transforming the very way brochures are printed or
    cosmetics are packaged The US graphic designing industry has become
    more receptive to new imaginations and ideas followed by arrival of
    innovative substrates compatible with metallic inks, such as textiles,
    synthetic paper and a range of plastics. Pigment manufacturers also
