The Future of Dye-Sublimation Printing to 2023
  • A forceful overall annual growth rate of 10.2% will push the value to €12.4 billion in 2023. The arrival of more productive machines and refinement of business models will see a growth rate of 17% by volume, with 2,666 million square metres of media printed in 2023.
  • This new study The Future of Dye Sublimation Printing to 2023 analyses and segments this distinct market across all key business and technical metrics to deliver an unparallel strategic business insight. Analysis of overall growth is contextualised by analysis of changes in machine format, end-use applications – such as garments, and exterior signage; and substrate across the forecast period.

description

Our exclusive content:

  • Extensive quantitative data on current and future demand for digital dye sublimation printing of fabrics and coated rigid media, by value and volume, worldwide across 2013-2023
