Modern printing machinery incorporates technologies such as UV LED curing systems, which consume less energy and emit less heat compared to traditional drying methods involving UV curing. Further, Direct to Fabric (DTF) printing is gaining popularity in the printing industry due to its environmental friendliness and efficiency compared to traditional screen-printing methods. DTF printing utilizes eco-friendly, water-based inks free from harmful chemicals and volatile organic compounds. These inks are non-toxic and environmentally safe, reducing potential health risks for workers and minimizing air pollution during the printing process. As a result, players in the printing machinery and equipment market are focusing on such eco-friendly processes. In February 2023, Mimaki announced its entry into the DTF printing market for textile and apparel applications with the launch of its first DTF printer, the “TxF150-75,” along with the introduction of the heat transfer pigment ink for DTF. Thus, the increasing demand for eco-friendly printing processes positively influences the growth of the printing machinery and equipment market.
