Driver: Implementation of advance technologies in smart textiles

The adoption of cutting-edge technology in smart textiles is a key factor in the market's expansion. The textile business has changed as a result of the adoption of new technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT). In order to monitor and transmit the wearer's information, including blood pressure, heart rate, perspiration, and temperature, smart clothing is being made with the integration of AI, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), edge computing, and cloud data. AI can access and gather operational data in real-time and the past and deliver insights that can increase the wearer's productivity. Some of the frequently used AI applications in the textile industry include defect detection, pattern inspection, and colour matching. The market for smart textiles is rising due to the downsizing of electrical components as well as the expanding wearables sector.

Passive smart textile to have a significant market in military and protection vertical during the forecast period

The initial generation of smart textiles are passive textiles, which can sense stimuli or environmental conditions but cannot alter in response to changes outside of themselves. In the military and protection vertical, the passive smart textile market is anticipated to hold a sizable market share throughout the forecast period, according to a MarketsandMarkets analysis. Because to their toughness, passive smart textiles, like conductive fabrics and fabrics with optical fibre incorporated in them, are frequently employed in the military and protective business. UV-protective clothing, antimicrobial fabric textiles, and multilayer composite fibres and textiles are a few examples of passive smart textiles. Passive smart textiles are provided for many applications in the medical, military, aerospace, bedding, garment, and footwear industries by large corporations like DuPont and Outlast Technologies.

Sensing function accounts for largest market share for smart textiles market during the forecast period

Over the time of forecasting, the sensing function is anticipated to hold the biggest market share in the market for smart textiles. Smart fabrics have the ability to detect and react to a wide range of environmental factors and stimuli produced by mechanical, thermal, chemical, electrical, magnetic, or any other sources. With a variety of sensors, clothing designed with smart textiles is able to detect a wearer's body heat, heart rate, breathing rate, motion, and speed. Modern smart fabric sensors can monitor bending, position, movement, and pressure in addition to other psychological factors. Sensing is therefore one of the important purposes for which smart textiles are being employed.
