San Jose, California (Vocus/PRWEB ) June 1, 2010 -- Textile printing has become a concept rather than just an embellishment on an outfit contributing to the style and shape of the garment. Digital printing, the newest as well as the most potential textile printing means, is increasingly becoming more accessible for the textile printers around the world to enable the designers to produce innovative prints as per their imagination in the right color on the right fabric. Technological advancements in textile printing made the two aspects associated with textile printing - the designing and the printing, more interdependent. Today´s textile printing technology facilitates precise and exact placing of prints on a garment, enables the manufacturers to decrease or increase the size of the print, modify the background tones, produce optical illusions, print advanced graphics, and offer the best translation of every single design.

Asia Pacific represents the world´s largest as well as fastest growing region in textile printing production as stated by the new market research report on Textile Printing. Asia Pacific accounts for more than half of the world textile printing production with China and India, the two most populous countries in the world, leading from the front. By fabric type, Apparel represents the largest fabric segment, while interior/ furnishings represent the fastest growing and second largest fabric segment for textile printing. The digital printing market today is driven by technological advancements in inkjet printers such as direct-to-fabric sublimation printers. While, improvements in the printhead technology are leading to increased nozzle density, which implies increased number of nozzles in each row. In addition, the market is influenced by the developments in textile applications including apparel and soft signage.
