Digital Textile Printing is a process of printing in which print colorants onto the garments and textiles fabric by using inkjet technology. This process allows for mid to small-run cycle production, single pieces and even long-runs as a substitute option to screen printed fabric. The first step of digital textile printing is to pre-treat the fabric with the liquid solutions that prepare it to allow the dye and better absorb the color. Then it is nourished with the printer, which sprays the dye onto the textile in the form of tiny droplets. The final step is fixing the fabric, now the process that ensures the durability of the design and depending on the type of dye and textile, fixing may involve dry heat, steam, or pressure.
Digital Textile Printing Market Dynamics
- High resolution, fine patterns and flexibility
In digital textile printing use the combination of unlimited colour, these digital printer are not limited to a maximum amount of rotary screens. Comparison to rotatory screen Digital textile printing uses less space. Furthermore, it uses less ink and power Digital textile printing doesn’t require water for sublimation. All these factors keep the costs low which are the main reason for the growth of the market.
- Rise in due to fast fashion products
The growing demand for "fast fashion" products due to changing the behaviour of consumers, faster adaptability, rapid urbanization, and increasing disposable income and reduced time span of fashion designs are anticipated to drive the demand for digital textile printing solutions in the apparel and garment sector.
- Rise the demand in packaging sector
Digital textile printing technology is used in the packaging sector for grading, identification, labelling, branding, and a variety of packaging solutions. The face of the textile printing industry is changing as digital textile printing and these technologies improve and expand.
The advanced digital printing technology involves using mild solvents and less-harmful chemicals than those used in conventional printing technologies, such as solid ink printing and offset printing. Therefore, with the growing focus on cost effective productions and green printing the demand for digital printing solutions is increasing in the digital textile printing market. Furthermore, an increase in the new emerging market and new strategic collaborations will also act as market drivers, which will further increase the useful opportunities for the market's growth rate.
The price of the digital textile printing machines is much higher than the conventional textile printing machines because the entire cost of ownership such as operators, service expenses, water, energy, ink, fabric post-treatment, etc. of conventional is higher than digital textile printing. The one meter of fabric of digital textile printing is roughly 1.5X more expensive as compared to traditional printing. Moreover, professional and trained workers are required to operate digital printing machine. So, these are the major market restrains that will obstruct the market's growth rate.
