The organizers announce the return of the influential digital and screen printing trade fair in parallel with reports of easing pandemic restrictions in China. The next edition will take place from 16 – 18 May 2023 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou. With the market showing strong signs of growth in China and beyond, the business-friendly platform will be an important avenue for exhibitors to increase their foothold in the region.
Wilmet Shea, general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK), commented: “With parts of the country opening up for business, I am pleased that we can help rekindle the in-person industry next year in Guangzhou. The disrupted trade fair schedule, paired with a growing textile printing sector, has left buyers and exhibitors eager for DS Printech China’s resumption.”
As one of Asia’s most prominent textile printing platforms, next year’s show will welcome fairgoers seeking to take advantage of the forecast business climate, with expansion expected for both the digital textile printing and screen printing markets.
Known as the “next generation” of textile printing, the digital textile printing market is poised for a CAGR of 12.1% from 2022 – 2030, due to its accuracy, speed, and small volume capabilities. Much of the growth will be driven by increased demand in China and other parts of Asia-Pacific. However, this has not detracted from the screen printing market, particularly in China, where an anticipated 21.6% CAGR until 2027 is expected to well exceed the global average.
DS Printech China is a rebranding of two events: CSGIA and Textile Digital Printing China. The debut edition in Shenzhen in 2020 attracted 200 exhibitors, who connected with 8,853 visitors and over 130,000 online participants.
The fair is co-organized by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, China Screen Printing & Graphic Imaging Association (CSGIA), and Guangzhou Teyin Exhibition Service.
