With ever changing and improving technology, the application of digital printing technique on textile industry is moving at the fast lane. Industry researchers estimate that there will be an increase of 30 billion yards of material volume on annual growth rate in worldwide textile printing industry, while the application of digital printing on textile goods accounts for growing share and continues expanding, which moves from mass-production to mass-customization. Using digital textile printing technology has numerous compelling advantages, including but not limited to the following 10 reasons: 
-Short run printing
-Lower water and power consumption
-Less chemical waste
-Large repeat sizes
-Reduced production space requirements
-Less printed inventory needed
-Sampling and production done on same printer
-Print flexibility
-Variety of creative design choices for printing
-Low capital investment.
In view of this the organizers of The 16th International Exhibition on Textile Industry (ShanghaiTex 2013) have set up a new theme zone named "Digital Printing Machinery Zone" in ShanghaiTex 2013 to meet the market demand on this area.
