Digital to drive fabric printing technology – FESPA survey

FESPA Digital 2014 will be focus for investment to boost productivity and embrace growth applications.

FESPA Digital 2014 (Messe Munich, 20 to 23 May 2014) could mark a tipping point for the wide format graphics sector, with a survey of the FESPA printing community forecasting the prevalence of digital by 2015.

Over half of the 250 printers surveyed by Infotrends on behalf of FESPA in Summer 2013 reported that wide format digital now represents more than a third of their revenue.

In two years' time, 72% of respondents expect this to be the case, with 54% forecasting half their business to come from digital, and almost a third anticipating that digital will make up one third of their income. The respondents to the survey spanned 53 countries.

Solvent and aqueous inkjet continue to dominate the installed base among those surveyed, with 48% and 43% of printers respectively reporting ownership of these technologies.

However, eco solvent, UV curable and latex printing are gaining ground. The proportion of work produced using UV curable inkjet is forecast by the community to grow from 13.6% now to 21% by 2015, contrasted with a drop from 18% to 13% for solvent UV.
