ESMA Application Paper: Textiles

The manufacturers and technology partners who make up the membership of ESMA, represent suppliers from the full spectrum of industrial printing; including screen, digital and pad printing. The diversity of applications that use these printing technologies is enormous and each application brings its own set of unique requirements. The ESMA Application Papers are designed to give suppliers, customers and potential new users an insight into some of the main applications and to showcase the capabilities that today’s speciality printing technologies can offer to add value to their product.


The textile industry is in flux. Environmental, economic and technical factors are driving the industry towards new models, both for how products are manufactured and how products are sold. Consumers and producers alike are increasingly aware of the challenges the in­dustry faces and the pressure for change is growing. Textile technology is also in constant evolution. On­going printhead improvement, introduction of new ink types and printing system development are pushing the industry forward. Across many segments, digital textile printing is gaining traction while traditional methods of print continue to thrive. ESMA views this Application Paper as a catalyst for our community to think about the impact of the technology we bring to market and how we may be able to balance growth with sustainable business operations…
