Hot stamping is a lithography printing method that uses stamping dies or heated image molds to transfer pre-dried inks or metal foils onto a surface. Hot stamping foils have three layers including a release layer, an adherence base, and a color layer, which can be metallic or pigment or of any other types. These foils are widely used in packaging and printing industry and are decorative with features like fading, heat distortions and resistance to abrasions.
The global hot stamping foils market has been seeing ample growth from the past few years. The primary factors such as increased research & development activities by multinational players in developing innovative technologies and UV process, growth in the currency printing, and rising significance of hot stamping foils in applications such as on automotive components, cell phones, TVs, books, packaging, textiles, wine bottles, bank cards, furniture, and bottle labels are accredited to the growth of the market. However, high cost associated with the hot stamping process is major restraining factor that could hamper the growth of the market.
