Analysis of the current situation of the global digital ink-jet printing industry

(I) current situation of the global digital ink-jet printing industry

the global printing market is mainly divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America. In recent years, the printing industry in North America and Europe has gradually shifted to countries in Asia and the Middle East due to the impact and limitations of many factors such as economic and ecological environment. Due to the contraction of the textile industry in North America, the printing industry in Latin America is gradually on the rise. At present, textile printing in the Asia Pacific region accounts for more than half of the total global printing volume, of which China and India are among the top producers

digital ink-jet printing technology is a product of modern scientific and technological applications integrating computer data processing, precision machinery and photoelectric information technology with the continuous development of computer technology. Digital ink-jet printing of textiles began in the 1970s, and completed the transformation from technical model to production application in the 1990s. It has developed rapidly since 2000, and has experienced the transformation process from proofing mainly used in the early stage of textile printing and dyeing to small batch production and then to large-scale production

the global digital ink-jet printing volume of textiles has doubled almost every two years since 2001, showing a trend of accelerated development. Digital ink-jet printing in Europe has always been in the forefront of the global digital ink-jet printing industry, and is the largest demand and production place of digital ink-jet printing products. Digital ink-jet printing has penetrated into various textile fields such as design, clothing, home textiles, automobile decoration, advertising, personalized customization, stores and so on. Especially in recent years, it has changed from the previous design and proofing mode to small batch production mode, and gradually developed to batch production. At present, more than 90% of European printing enterprises use digital ink-jet printing proofing, and the production of digital ink-jet printing products has accounted for about 30% of the total output of printing products. The high market share of digital ink-jet printing in Europe is related to the design, development and production mode of European textile enterprises. The design drawings provided by European designers can often be directly applied to the digital ink-jet printing equipment system, so that designers can timely put forward modification opinions on the proofing effect of digital ink-jet printing, Guest if you have other questions in the process of operating the concrete pressure testing machine, it has promoted the improvement of the design level of the flower model and the industrialization of digital ink-jet printing

some traditional printing factories in the United States have taken digital ink-jet printing as the leading direction of their product and market development. Some companies that were not originally engaged in the printing industry have also begun to expand the application scope of digital ink-jet printing. In addition to textile proofing, small batch production and limited production, their products have been expanded to other applications and markets. At present, the total number of digital inkjet printing machines in the Americas has also exceeded 150

many traditional printing factories in Japan adopt the production mode of flat printing, round printing and digital ink-jet printing, which draw on each other's strengths, complement each other, and expand the range of products

India is stepping up the development of digital ink-jet printing industry

according to the research report jointly released by Pira international consulting company and the Federation of European printing associations (fespa), which advocates that "what is cited more is important", the compound annual growth rate of global textile digital printing machines was 23.1% from 2009 to 2014. It strategies' research on the apparel market segment in 2006 predicted that with the gradual maturity of ink-jet printing technology and the promotion and application of digital ink-jet printing machines, the retail sales of digital ink-jet printing apparel will reach $12billion in 2014

(II) current situation of China's digital ink-jet printing industry

the printing and dyeing industry is an important part of China's textile industry. Since 2000, China's printing and dyeing industry has fully grasped the opportunities of capital flow, technology transfer and capacity transfer of global textile economic integration, and achieved sustained, rapid and stable development. At present, it has become the world's largest producer, exporter and consumer of printed and dyed fabrics. The output of printed fabrics in China accounts for about 25% of printed fabrics. At present, the output of printed fabrics of Enterprises above designated size is about 15billion meters

the research on digital ink-jet printing technology in China started late, and relevant research reports did not appear until the 1990s, but it was only limited to the exploratory research of some scientific research institutions. Honghua Digital Technology Co., Ltd. was one of the first enterprises to apply the achievements of digital technology to industrial production. Honghua Digital Technology Co., Ltd. began to study the application of digital ink-jet printing technology in the field of textile industry in 1997, and successfully developed the first digital ink-jet printing machine in China in 2000. The company has a complete independent intellectual property system, laying the foundation for the industrialization of digital ink-jet printing of textiles in China. In 2007, the company launched the third generation Vega high-speed belt guided inkjet printing machine. In the same year, Vega digital inkjet printing system was exhibited at ITMA exhibition. In 2011, the company launched the fourth generation Vega high-speed belt guided digital inkjet printing machine, with a maximum printing speed of more than 400 square meters/hour, which was exhibited at ITMA exhibition in the same year. The digital inkjet printing machines of Hangzhou Kaiyuan Computer Technology Co., Ltd. and Hangzhou saishun Electromechanical Equipment Co., Ltd. also have a certain market share

at present, the proportion of digital ink-jet printing in China's textile printing industry is very small, accounting for less than 1% of the total printing volume. According to statistics, from 2008 to 2011, the total printing volume of Enterprises above Designated Size in China, the volume of digital ink-jet printing and the number of digital ink-jet printing machines in the domestic market

as of 2011, there are about 700 digital ink-jet printing machines of various models in China. The existing digital ink-jet printing equipment generally adopts the micro voltage nozzle made in Japan, with 8 colors, 360 holes in each color, and the printing width is 1600mm or 2200mm. Before 2010, the printing speed of digital ink-jet printing machines was generally 20 ~ 50 square meters/hour

in terms of ink, at present, more than 50% of printing ink in China is disperse dye ink, which is used for chemical fiber fabric printing; The second is reactive dye ink, which is mainly used for printing silk and cotton fabrics; The proportion of acid dye ink is small, accounting for about 3%, which is used for printing wool, nylon and other fabrics. The use of pigment inks in China is relatively small, less than 2%, most of which are foreign products, and the manufacturers include Huntsman, BASF, DuPont, Klein and other companies. Driven by the rapid development of digital ink-jet printing technology, the research and development process of domestic inks has accelerated, and the proportion of use is gradually increasing. Some equipment manufacturers have cooperated with professional dye factories to continuously improve and improve the quality of dye inks, and have made important breakthroughs in the key processes for the development of reactive, acidic and dispersed inks. The chromatograms of domestic inks are relatively complete, and they can meet the export requirements in terms of coloring rate, brightness, light resistance, chlorine fastness, soaping fastness, dry and wet rubbing fastness, reproducibility, etc., and their prices have considerable competitive advantages over imported inks

digital ink-jet printing in China is mainly used for proofing, mass production, design, scientific research and teaching. Compared with traditional printing and proofing, digital ink-jet printing saves time and cost. Therefore, most enterprises purchase digital ink-jet printing machines for proofing, but some enterprises that completely use digital ink-jet printing machines have emerged in succession, especially the newly-built enterprises mainly engaged in silk printing have made digital ink-jet printing machines their first choice; In addition, some design companies and colleges are used to design flower patterns and teaching. At present, the market segment of digital ink-jet printing in China is roughly 70% for proofing, 20% for mass production, and 10% for design, scientific research and teaching
