FAIRFIELD, N.J., Dec. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Keypoint Intelligence published a market prediction for direct to garment (DTG), printers, for the years 2021-2026. This forecast covers devices that are used for DTG printing. It includes devices with multiple platens, including printers with toner transfer (EP), which compete in the entry-level commercial sector. In the forecast deliverables, there is also a pivot table that includes figures for direct-to-film (DTF).

Direct-to–garment printing involves digitally printing textiles and garments with inkjet technology. Print transport and inkjet-deposition elements are two common solutions that allow you to print on garments when they are finished.

We have established the market size of DTG printers in 2021 by collecting placement data from key vendors and analyzing machine capabilities in industrial and commercial environments. Based on market trends, the forecast for 2026 can be broken down into the following regions:

The world was free from the COVID-19 pandemic at the time of data collection and forecasting. However, there is still economic disruption as the global economy struggles for a new start. The global supply chain and shipping disruptions continue impacting supplies of consumables, parts and garments. Additionally, labor shortages are disrupting normal business operations.

“In 2021 the world’s first direct-to-garment printing reached its peak $10.5 Billion In print value and is expected reach $21.3 billion “By 2026,” claims Johnny Shell, Principal Analyst at Keypoint Intelligence. “Digitally printed garments have reached 958 millions pieces worldwide, with a projected CAGR 16.8% through 2026.”

Some trends include the integration of workflow automation with online marketplaces (Shopify and Amazon, for example). This is made available by both OEMs and third party providers, making it easier to compete. In addition, the speed gap between commercial printers and industrial printers is narrowing and DTG printers that are faster for industrial use have a tendency to dismiss the idea that “digital printing is too slow”. The global ecommerce market is growing at a steady pace. By 2025, it will account for 24.5% of the total. Additionally, digitally printed apparel is continuing to grow in the ecommerce direction.
