InfoTrends Projects Accelerated Growth in U.S. Wide Format Digital Textile Printing Systems

(Weymouth, MA) September 17, 2008 . . . There is intense interest in digital textile printing among printers as well as printing equipment and supplies manufacturers, as the volume potential is high and the average selling price is relatively high compared to paper-based wide format prints. Dye-sublimation is one of the leading digital textile decoration processes, and with the development of in-line sublimation printers, InfoTrends expects revenue from wide format dye-sublimation textile printing systems to grow from $7.5 million in 2007 to $65 million in 2012.

In a recent InfoTrends survey, textiles were cited as one of the hottest applications for digital wide format printers. Recognizing that textiles represent print media rather than an application, InfoTrends collaborated with SGIA to conduct a study to determine which applications are driving textile printing and also to generate a better understanding of the overall digital textile printing market.

InfoTrends and SGIA set out to measure some of the more important elements of the textile printing market with this recent survey. The survey included more than 100 respondents consisting of a variety of industry stakeholders such as printing establishments, finished textile producers, and manufacturers of inks and software that drive digital textile printing systems. The survey was structured to provide insight into 5 key areas:

  • Production Processes
  • Fabrics
  • Inks
  • Applications
  • Market Barriers

The results of this emerging markets study have been compiled in a cutting-edge report from InfoTrends entitled U.S. Digital Printing and Textiles Report. For more information about the report or to make a purchase, visit our online store or contact Robyn Wuori at +1 ext. 103 or via e-mail at .
