The textile industry in India has grown quite quickly and the growth pace of such growth is over double that of the whole textile production. The textile industry contributed most to India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in recent years. It has emerged as a major player in the Indian economy and is also an important contributor to the Indian economy. The rapid industrialization, growing middle class and availability of skilled labor force have all played an important role in the development of textile industry. The textile industry employs a huge number of people, both male and female, from all over the Indian countryside and cities.
So far as the forecast for the future textile manufacturing is concerned, it is evident that it will be based on increasing demand, with more value added products and an enhanced appetite for customization. Demand will be driven by increasing industrialization, urbanization and rural development. The urban population is increasing rapidly in the country and this rise in population is set to continue and is expected to cross the million mark in next few years. This rise in the population is also due to various other factors such as increasing leisure time, increased comforts and leisure time, exposure to the global market, etc. Rapid urbanization is also expected to generate more job opportunities and also result in significant revenue generation. All these factors are likely to propel the textile printing machine market in India in the coming years.
There are several textile printing machine segments available in the market currently. These include digital fabric printing machine, digital embroidery machine, multi-media transfer (MTT), desktop system, direct fabric feed (DCF) and thermal transfer system. Let us take a brief look at each of them. As already mentioned, digital fabric printing machine is one of the popular segments in the market. This segment mainly deals in large format copying and screening of various fabrics such as denim, cotton, silk, synthetic fiber, rayon, nylon, etc., on the basis of color and sizes.
Digital textile printer is mainly used for digitally reading of large number of colors. This kind of technology uses dye sublimation technique and heat transfer paper, which basically allows the machine to produce high quality digital prints and images. The digital textile printer generally consumes less power and also produces good quality prints.
Vastrajet is a popular textile printing machine type which uses ink cartridges to transfer the design made by designers on various fabrics. This enables designers to easily manipulate the image and colors transferred on the fabric. This technology helps the manufacturer to increase the production rate and to reduce cost. On the other hand, the desktop system is primarily used for single unit production. It is capable of providing consistent quality throughout the manufacturing process.
With the help of digital textile printing and multifunctional functions, manufacturers are able to gain maximum benefit from the technical advancements in the field of textile marketing. The rapid pace of technological advancements has made it possible to produce bulk amounts of products with increased speed. Moreover, it has helped them gain competitive advantage. However, it has also created a problem for them as far as price is concerned. The problem is solved with the introduction of a variety of machines that prints original designs of various manufacturers at a very cheap rate. In fact, if you go through the official website of leading brands, you will be able to find the entire range of textile printers that are available in the market at affordable prices.
In addition to the above-mentioned fabrics, the present range of technology provides manufacturers with the facility to print customized logos, texts, images, graphic designs, etc. on various fabrics including apparel, housewares, bedding items, sports garments, etc. These digital textile printing machines are capable of producing high quality items at extremely low costs. The main benefit of using such modern day devices is that they can be easily used in embroidery applications such as patchwork and netting.
The digital textile printing devices are further classified into two categories, namely, ink jet printers and thermal printers. Ink jet printers use high-pressure streams of ink cartridges to produce highly detailed and solid colors. However, they are suitable for printing small areas of textiles at a time. Thermal printers, on the other hand, use heat to print on fabrics thereby producing highly high-quality designs.
