Global UV Curing Lamps Market: Introduction
UV curing is a unique way in which coatings, varnishes, ink, adhesives and others are cured using polymerization instead of using methods which involve evaporation or heating. Inks, varnishes, adhesives and other different types of photo initiators respond to different wavelengths of UV light for curing. Selection of a proper photo initiator is most important to achieve the desired speed and to balance the properties of cure films. UV LED a type of UV curing lamp is divided into two systems which are radical systems and cationic systems respectively. UV lamps are powered by ballasts. Ceramic end cap is used for the electrical insulation of the UV curing lamps. Some UV curing lamps have an aluminum polished reflector which increases the UV curing lamps efficiency. The UV curing systems are efficient and are preferred more than thermal coating methods. Mercury curing lamps will dominate the digital print sector until UV LED’s substitute it. Owing to the technology advancement, reduction in manufacturing time is observed. UV LED curing lamp takes less time to dry the adhesives, inks and coatings compared to the traditional lamps. The reduction in manufacturing time thereby reduces the manufacturing costs.
Global UV Curing Lamps Market: Dynamics
Environmental improvements and new system capability has made a lot of demand for adoption of UV curing technology. Increased adoption of UV curing systems in end users like automotive, medical, chemical and other industries has created growth opportunities for the Global UV curing lamps market along with its different applications. Advances in printing industry and vehicle manufacturing is another factor leading to a rise in the Global UV curing lamps market.
UV LED curing lamps are eco-friendly and resource saving. There is a demand for shorter turnaround time for the job to be cured and also increasing demand for uncoated stocks that can be challenging with traditional lamps. These trends make the UV attractive in the market leading to a potential growth of Global UV curing lamps.
UV LED curing technology is now used in UV ink jet printing. Mercury based UV curing lamps will be replaced owing to United Nations ban on mercury by 2020. However, the LED based UV curing lamps have disadvantages too. The UV LED curing lamps react to specially formulated inks owing to their narrow wavelengths. Life span and maintenance costs of UV curing lamps are other factors which may slow down the growth of the Global UV curing lamp market. UV curing lamps require a high installation which may also affect the growth of the Global UV curing lamps market.
