Inkjet Forum India will hold its 6th digital textile printing conference, Digital Textile Summit 2016 on December 7, 2016, concurrent with India's biggest textile technology trade show India ITME 2016.

“Digital Textile Summit 2016, a one-day conference will be held the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Mumbai, India,” a press release from Inkjet Forum informed.

The conference will see presentations and talks from experts on varied topics like; Market Analysis of Indian Digital Textile Printing Market; High Speed Digital Fabric Printing Solutions and Digital Fabric Printing for Increased Profits.

Other topics include; Pigment Inkjet Technology for Textiles; Latest Technologies for Textile Sublimation Printing and Emergence of New Business Models Driving Digital Textile Printing.

The conference will also see topics like New System Solutions for Durable Printing of Home Textile and Furnishings and Direct Disperse Inkjet Printing onto Synthetic Fabrics being addressed.

“With the development of enabling inkjet technologies and the emergence of reliable high-speed textile inkjet printers, the output of digital printed textiles is now growing steadily,” Inkjet Forum said.

“We realise that for new entrants into this technology, there are challenges in understanding what types of systems and technology to invest in, and what utilising digital printing means to your business model,” it added.

“This event will go a long way towards answering those questions as it provides an ideal knowledge-sharing platform for all stakeholders for growth and betterment of the technology,” the company observed.

Aditya Chandavarkar, founder of Inkjet Forum India said, “Digital textile printing has found its way into markets as diverse as apparel and garment printing, home furnishings, industrial fabrics and soft signage.”

“Worldwide by market penetration, digitally printed textiles account for less than 3 per cent by volume of total fabric printed, but the market size is enormous, and growth in adoption is accelerating,” he too added.

According to Chandavarkar, the $300 million digital printing market in India has seen 95 per cent rise in installation base for industrial digital textile printing machines between 2014–2015.

Inkjet Forum India said it is currently developing the conference programme and recruiting sponsors and speakers for the event and the full programme will be announced in April 2016. (AR)
