Digital Textile Printing Market Analysis
In 2014, production volume of dyeing fabrics in China is around 53.6 billion meters. Among them, printed fabrics are about 25%, which is 13.5 billion meters.
In China, digital textile printing is still at initial stage. Digital printed fabrics are about 500 million meters, which is 4-5% of whole printed fabrics production. Compared with 30% share of digital printed fabrics in foreign markets, there is still a huge gap
It is expected that China digital printing industry will keep CAGR of more than 30%.
In 2020, digital printed fabrics is expected to account for about 10% of whole printed fabrics , which is about 1.2-1.5 billion meters.
China Situation Dyeing and Printing Industry:
Our printing and dyeing wastewater emission is about 3 million to 4 million cubic meters per day. It is accounting for 35% of total emission of industrial wastewater. It is is very serious;
Environmental pollution generated by traditional textile printing and dyeing industry has severely restricted the sustainable development of this industry. There are about textile printing and dyeing company in Shaoxing, which is one of centers of China textile printing and dyeing industry. From this year, many printing and dyeing mills are shut down in this area due to pollution issues. Development of traditional printing and dyeing industry is restricted;
Digital textile printing process has advantages on energy-saving and environment friendly. These advantages can solve difficulties in traditional printing and dyeing industry. It is worth widely adopted.
Simple process. It does not need vaporization and washing. This leads to advantages of energy-saving and environmental-friendly.
Low defective percentage. Simple and reliable process can achieve consistent results.
Long print head life.
Weakness of textile pigment digital printing at early stage
Low color saturation
Soft, and does not affect the fabric style
Printhead is safe
Jetextile® Textile Pigment Ink has wide color gamut, which is close to reactive dye ink color gamut. It has good color fastness. Light fastness is also high. This ink printed fabrics have good hand. This performance leads to opportunity to apply pigment ink replacing some of reactive dye ink printing. Textile pigment digital printing will be the best choice for blend fabrics and high light fastness deserved application, such as curtains.
