It is interesting to note — some might even say surprising — that the European radiation curing market is larger, more dynamic and more innovative than its US and Japanese equivalents. Raw materials, at a current value of £70m, are currently growing at 8–15% p.a. on average, compared with 5–7% p.a. in the US. According to a new study from IAL Consultants, European suppliers are continually at the forefront of chemical research. New materials appear frequently — a stark contrast to the US, where new materials are rarely introduced due to the onerous bureaucratic difficulties involved.
