Press release from the issuing company

“Innovations in Inkjet for Textile Production” will be live streamed on Tuesday November 14 at 1 p.m. ET

The textile market has many growth opportunities for inkjet. Data from Smithers indicates that revenue from inkjet for textiles grew by nearly 15% from 2021 to 2022 and is on track for a continued CAGR of over 9% between 2023 and 2028. That growth is important for the entire textile ecosystem from a sustainability perspective as well as a revenue perspective. To continue to grow, inkjet needs to continue to meet new market demands and overcome compatibility and productivity challenges through innovations in ink, printheads and drying/curing.

“Innovations in Inkjet for Textiles” will talk about this demanding market including direct to fabric, film and garment. Our expert presenters from the US and UK will explain market requirements and showcase the latest releases of inks, printheads and complete textile printing solutions. Attendees will learn about:

  • Trends in the textile market driving opportunities for inkjet growth and for mills and designers embracing inkjet production
  • Differences in requirements for segments of the textile market and how they are currently addressed
  • The impact of ink innovation on textile compatibility and purchasing models
  • Press and underlying technology developments driving improved efficiency and sustainability

Our expert presenters have hands-on experience with textile design and inkjet production and enthusiasm to share their knowledge.

This webinar will be useful for producers of textiles for fashion and décor as well as developers of printing solutions to serve those markets. As always, our Inkjet Explainers will interest anyone wanting to learn how inkjet is pushing the boundaries of jetting and fluid compatibility.
