Europe Digital Textile Printing Market, By End Use

Display and others segment dominates the Europe digital textile printing market. Integrated electronic circuits can be incorporated into washable fabric for wearable electronics and other display devices. Such circuits are printed with eco-friendly inks using digital textile printing techniques.  Researchers from China and Italy are focusing on introducing superior inks for high-quality printing. For instance, Italy made Kiian Digistar Hi-PRO Sublimation Ink, a water-based piezo ink, which is used for digital textile printing for polyester fabrics that can be used in electronic display and other integrated circuits. Such printed components require low cost and are required to be highly flexible and washable in nature. However, due to high wash fastness, such products offer limited compatibility with skin.

COVID-19 analysis:

COVID-19 had a wide range of consequences and its effects felt all across the globe including several industries and business. Textile industry also faced serious consequences due to Covid-19 outbreak. Short and long-distance mobility restrictions worldwide had strong repercussions on this labor-intensive and highly globalized industry. At the start of 2020, the global health crisis and subsequent government measures caused, both a drop in production and considerable disruption in textile supply chains, creating spill-overs at the cross-regional level. Also, China being prominent hub for textile manufacturing and critical global supplier of textile inputs, when disruptions started, the trade impacts on manufacturing consequently extended throughout the global market, including Europe. Due to drop in trade values, decrease of 38% in textile industry and 57% in clothing subsectors in Europe was observed till the end of April 2020. In response to this situation, a couple of big European brands made plans to redistribute production orders that were originally planned for China to countries like Turkey, Morocco, Portugal and Spain. Italy is one of the biggest players for industrial printing in Europe, and corona impacted the Italian economy on a massive scale. Italy announced a lock down as well, followed by Spain, due to which a large part of the textile printing industry in Europe faced financial crisis.
