This is the first joint initiative by WTiN and IMI Europe, following the partnership agreement signed in May.
Japan is the epicentre of inkjet technology and previous editions of Digital Print Japan attracted a high-level audience from the OEM, components and inks community. WTiN’s participation in the forthcoming event recognises the massive growth in digital textile applications and the central role of Japanese engineering and electronics in the sector’s continuing expansion.
The WTiN Digital Textile Conference in Tokyo, aimed at C-level and senior management responsible for business development and technology who wish to understand emerging opportunities in the digital textile printing industry, will explore both the latest market developments and advances in inkjet technology as applied to textiles.
WTiN Intelligence has reported that the global digital textile market grew by 28% in 2015, with production of 1.2 billion sqm of printed fabric. Average compound growth of 17% a year is expected up to 2019, making this market a key commercial target for inkjet technology suppliers and the focus of intensive R&D.
