Textile Printing: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn - Textile printing is a concept indispensable to the style and design of garments. The textile industry is making a steady shift towards prints rather than dyed fabric, driven mainly by the rapid changes in the fashion world. Steady population growth, increasing purchasing capability, and rapidly changing fashion trends are among the key factors driving growth in the textile printing market. The steady shift towards digital textile printing, due primarily to the technology’s ability to offer similar production speeds as well as coloration costs as that of conventional screen printing technique, is also helping drive growth. With uncertain economic environment affecting operations of traditional textile printers, companies are shifting towards alternative options including digital textile printing technology as a means to sustain operations and improve revenue generation. Technology advancements and improvements in areas of inks and consumables, printheads, and printing machinery are also expected to infuse new demand for textile printing.

As stated by the new market research report on Textile Printing, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and fastest growing market with a CAGR of 4.0% over the analysis period. The textile industry’s shift towards low-cost production destinations in developing markets have contributed to the region’s emergence as a powerhouse in textile production. In the coming years, market growth will be chiefly driven by growing population and steady GDP growth in economies such as India and China. Over the years, application of digital textile printing has expanded from high-end luxury, fashion garments, accessories and home furnishings to the mass-market.

Screen Printing represents the largest market sector by type of technology. Though facing stiff competition from the rapid adoption of digital technology, conventional screen printing continues to hold a major share of the global textile printing market, in terms of production volume of printed textiles. Technology advancements aimed at improving process speeds and accelerating time-to-market will be the key to survival of the screen printing technology. Digital textile printing represents the fastest growing sector. Apart from enabling designers to produce highly innovative and imaginative prints, digital textile printing is also eco-friendly due to lesser usage of dyes and water. The technique also offers support for experimentation, prototyping, customization, and facilitates shorter production runs. Factors driving growth of digital textile printing include development of high-quality inkjet print heads, availability of open system inkjet print heads that enable use of inks from multiple suppliers, and availability of lesser priced solutions. Despite its higher cost, digital technology is likely to witness growth due to its ability to print intricate designs over polyester and silk.
