Smart Textile Market | Growth Opportunities, Driving Factors by Manufacturers, Regions, Type and Application, Forecast Analysis to 2023

“Smart Textile Market”
Global smart textile market by type (passive, active, very smart), application (sensing, medical, energy harvest, thermo-electricity), end-use industry (military & defense, building & construction, automotive, textile, medical), region till 2023

Market Overview:

Smart Textiles, also known as smart clothing and smart garments, are the fabrics which easily accommodates battery, light, smart chips, digital components, and other electronics. These type of fabrics are designed and developed with the implementation of advanced technologies, which add to the value of such clothing.  The Smart Textiles are of two major types depending on the function they perform, performance enhancing, and aesthetic. The performance enhancing the type of Smart Textiles are mainly used in sports, athletic and military applications, wherein they control body weight and temperature, external vibrations, and wind resistance to improve the overall performance of an athlete.  The aesthetic smart fabrics are the ones which light up and change color, absorbs energy from the environment by harnessing vibrations, heat, light, and sound by reacting with them. Some other smart fabrics are also designed to guard the body and skin against harmful radiations, natural hazards, and effects of space during space travel.

The Smart Textile has ability to enhance and add value to fabrics to meet the need of various applications. The demand for lightweight and durable fabrics in numerous applications starting from textile, sports, automotive to defense and space has witnessed upward trend during the past few years and is anticipated to be the same over the forecast period. According to some leading research institutes in the world, the global aerospace composite or core material market may register nearly 40 billion USD by expanding at a growth rate of around 9% till the end of 2023. This is expected to boost demand for the smart fabrics in the manufacturing aerospace composites. Apart from aerospace industry, the automotive industry is fetching a considerable amount of smart fabrics in various applications such as dashboard, under the hood, insulation, and sensing. With changing lifestyle of people around the world, they are becoming more health conscious than ever before and this trend may grow even further due to shifting sentiments in favor of prevention instead of searching for cure. This is likely to fuel the demand for smart textile fabrics in the smart clothing wear, safety gears, and sensing fabrics. Around the globe, the leading and emerging military powers such as the U.S., Russia, China, and India are investing sizeable share of their GDP in building their armor, upgrading their defense system, and enhancing the deterrence ability. This is anticipated to boost the demand for the smart fabrics in the coming years. However, the major bottleneck in the growth trajectory is the capital-intensive nature of Smart Textile.
