Digital Textile Printing Market Growth and Trends

Any digitally designed design or pattern can be printed on garments, fabric rolls and other textile items such as accessories, sheets, curtains, rugs, etc. The drawings are generated using software. The printing techniques in digital textile printing are direct-to-garment (DTG) printing and roll-on-roll/direct-to-fabric printing. Fabric pretreatment is essential in digital printing as it ensures that the fabric retains ink effectively and enables the use of a wide range of colors on the textile.

Digital textile printing is conceived as the “next generation” of printing. Many textile business owners are investing in digital printing technology as fabric printing moves into the modern form of printing. To meet the demands of the new generation, the textile industry around the world is adopting digital printing technology to print new designs on garments and fabrics. Different types of inks are used for digital textile printing. Acid, reactive, dispersion, pigment, sublimation and reactive are the most commonly used colorants for digital printing. These inks are available in vibrant colors and can be used for commercial printing purposes.

The choice of ink differs with each fabric; for example, reactive inks are mainly used on cotton, linen and rayon, dispersion inks for polyester and acid inks for silk and nylon. Compared to traditional printing, digital textile printing has several advantages. The benefits of digital printing include the ability to print multiple colors on a garment at once, the ability to print on multiple garments at once, the ability to print a diverse range of color shades, among others. It also enables accurate, faster, low-volume printing at an economical cost. In addition, the digital printing process is more efficient and economical. Designers and textile companies are therefore increasingly adopting digital textile printing technology.

The textile sector is one of the major sources of pollution. Digital textile printing is a greener alternative to other, more polluting technologies. Digital textile printing is a better alternative as it does not require fabric washing, and therefore less water and energy is used in the printing process. Digital textile printing technology has certain limitations, such as metallic shades cannot be printed with digital technology. Europe held the largest market share of more than 37% in the global market, owing to the growing demand for digital textile printing in the fashion centers of Europesuch as Italyand France. Italy holds a significant share of the European market.

The presence of many fashion companies in Rome, Milano, Veniceand Palermo increases the demand for specialized digital textile printing. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region with a CAGR of 15.1% during the forecast period. This is due to the presence of a large number of textile poles in the region. China and India are the two main contributors to the Asia Pacific market. countries like Bangladeshand Vietnam are also becoming hubs for the textile market.
