The total estimates volume of digitally printed fabric is 31 million linear meters/year with a estimated annual market value of US $ 100 million.

The major fabrics being printed with DTP at present include Cotton, Silk & Polyester with a large percentage of the application end use currently is printed fabrics for fashion & apparel.

One of the printing application which has rapidly adopted digital printing is the printing of Sarees. Looking at the growing Indian population & need for new designs this industry will continue to be a major component of Digital Textile Printing in India.

Conclusion

Digital textile printing is overall an interesting technology and provides exciting avenues for new products development, innovation and value addition to the end users.

- Accurate feedback & documentation from the end user to the technology suppliers to resolve issues efficiently.
- Investment of time by end user to train their print technicians/masters
- Timely follow up of maintenance schedule by end user and use of approved spares, inks to avoid downtime
- Continous interaction between suppliers & end users
