and price. While ITMA 2015 saw the super-fast single-pass machines meet head-on, ITMA 2019 is likely to have a focus on ink innovation, and perhaps for the development of inkjet in other areas of textile finishing. The WTiN Digital Textile Conference
at ITMA will also explore the trend for integration of on-demand print with downstream manufacturing processes.
