Global Photographic Paper Market – Overview
In recent years, the printing industry has seen significant growth due to the adoption of better printing technology, which increases the aesthetic look of the product. The photographic paper is layered with a light-sensitive chemical that is used for creating photographic prints. Photographic paper when exposed to light can capture the image/picture and can be developed as a visible picture. The photographic paper is mainly made of fiber-based paper (FB) and resin-coated paper (RC) with a baryta layer (barium sulfate) as a photographic emulsion.
In addition, the photographic paper also helps in developing images on the paper only by fixing and clearing. Furthermore, photographic paper can also imprint a high-quality image to replicate a better-captured object. Due to excellent high-quality imaging on photographic paper, it can be used for making hoardings, posters, magazines, etc.
