Passion for Print Textile Conference 2019

May 10, 2019

A Passion for Print Textile Conference focused on interior textile design and print, and explored a range of exciting and innovative topics within the world of interior textile printing.

Few print sectors have seen as much innovation and new product development (NPD) brought forward by major equipment manufacturers as textiles over the last few years. 

The reason for this focus becomes apparent when you look at the market statistics

  • Inkjet printing of textiles is one of the fastest growing print segments, with the worldwide market value rising to $88bn in 2018, more than double its value in 2013. 
  • Over the same five-year period the volume of fabric printed digitally has grown from 548m2 to  1,160m2
  • Projected values will continue to grow over the next few years, with the market reaching $3.75bn in 2023, and 2.70bn m2 square metres fabric consumed.
