SGI Dubai that was held recently, welcomed over 400 exhibitors from over 34 countries and attracted close to 13,000 local and international visitors.

“The event showcased innovative printers and digital signage panels worth over AED 220 million, while exhibitors at the show signed contracts worth millions of dollars,” a press release from the organiser said.

Brother Middle East, Magic Touch and several other brands showcased some of their textile printing machines at the show which was held in Dubai.

According to the organisers, UAE stands as the world's fourth largest trading centre of textiles, generating an approximate $17.5 billion annually.

“As per a report, printed textiles market is projected to touch 29.8 billion square metres by 2020, due to the technology enhancements aimed at improving print speeds, design and efficiency,” they added.

SGI Dubai 2016 had an exclusive textile printing focused pavilion called 'SGI Textile', which unveiled new technologies under two broad printing categories namely 'technical fabric' and 'garment decoration'.

“Digital printing technology is also poised to benefit immensely from the success of fast fashion, which requires manufacturers to reduce time to market,” International Expo Consults, the organisers informed.

Abdul Falaknaz, chairman of International Expo Consults said, “Screen printing continues to hold a major share of the global textile printing market, in terms of production volume of printed textiles.”

“However, it is facing a strong competition due to the fast adoption of digital technology and so we have therefore tried to grow this market further by bringing global brands to our show in 2016,” Falaknaz too added.

“Manufacturing of high-quality inkjet print heads and lower priced competitive solutions are expected to fast-track the adoption of digital printing technology," Falaknaz stated.

SGI Dubai has a successful history of creating a great platform for exhibitors and visitors in the signage, digital signage, retail signage solutions, outdoor media, screen and digital printing industries. (AR)
