FAIRFIELD, N.J., Dec. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire–PRWeb/ Keypoint Intelligence has published a market outlook for direct-to garment (DTG) printers in the years 2021-2026. This forecast covers devices that are used for DTG printing. It includes devices with multiple platens, including printers with toner transfer (EP), which compete in the entry-level commercial sector. In the forecast deliverables, there is also a pivot table that includes figures for direct-to-film (DTF).
Direct-to–garment printing involves digitally printing textiles and garments with inkjet technology. Print transport and inkjet reposition elements are common options that can be used to print on finished garments.
Based on placement data from key vendors and analysis of machine capabilities in both industrial and commercial environments, the 2021 market for DTG printers was established. These regions provide a breakdown of the market trends for the period 2026.
The world was free from the COVID-19 pandemic at the time of data collection and forecasting. However, there is still economic disruption as the global economy struggles for a new start. The global supply chain and shipping disruptions continue impacting supplies of consumables, parts and garments. Additionally, labor shortages are disrupting normal business operations.
“In 2021 the world’s first direct-to-garment printing reached its peak $10.5 billion It is estimated to have a print value of approximately 50,000 and an expected annual growth rate of 5%. $21.3 billion By 2026,” claim Johnny Shell, Principal Analyst at Keypoint Intelligence. “Digitally printed garments were printed in 958 million units worldwide with a CAGR projected at 16.8% thru 2026.”
One trend that has been noted is the integration of workflow automation with online marketplaces (Amazon, Shopify, etc.). This is made available by both OEMs and third party providers, making it easier to compete. In addition, the speed gap between commercial printers and industrial printers is narrowing and DTG printers that are faster for industrial use have a tendency to dismiss the idea that “digital printing is too slow”. Global ecommerce growth is expected to continue. It will reach a 24.5% market share by 2025. Digitally printed apparel continues its trend in the ecommerce direction.
