The 'next big thing' in digital textile printing (DTP) will be the increasing focus on colour accuracy, as well as application on a broader range of fabrics. A relatively mature technology in terms of combining quality and speed, digital textile printing is being adopted beyond soft signage into the fashion and interior décor markets.

Digital textile printing is increasingly viable for natural fabrics, with some manufacturers integrating pre-treatment into the higher volume roll-to-roll hardware. Looking further ahead, smart garments are beginning to make use of digital textile to incorporate electronics. There is also the Project Jacquard fabric from Google ATAP which includes conductive threads in the woven yarn, according to Roz Mcguinness, divisional director at Federation of European Screen Printers Associations (FESPA).

The global market for digital textile printing in 2015 represented 932 million square metres, and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) accounted for 55 per cent of this. The global market by volume is predicted to grow by 29 per cent CAGR up to 2020, with much of that growth driven by Asia Pacific and EMEA respectively, she told fibre2fashion.com, adding that the global market by volume is forecast to grow by 29 per cent CAGR to 2020, with much of that growth driven by Asia Pacific and EMEA respectively.
