Hey! Here’s a forecast you should know about!

Sign printers are apparently eyeing textile printing as a diversification option. According to Ginny Mumm writing for Sign Media Canada, Allied Market Research’s industry forecast for 2020-2027 suggests that the global digital textile printing market will grow by a compound annual growth of 19.1%.

This projection includes direct-to-fabric prints and dye sublimation.

If this projection turns out to be even close to accurate, it suggests a huge diversification trend in the digital and graphics industry. And apparently it includes all sizes of shops, right across the board.

So, something you should be aware of and probably explore. No good eventually turning up after the train has left the station!
