E-Textiles 2017-2027: Market Has Been Slow to Start Due to Many Challenges - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "E-Textiles 2017-2027: Technologies, Markets, Players" report to their offering.

We are in contact with textiles for up to 90% of our lives, and they are starting to become intelligent. The basis of this new functionality is the integration of textiles and electronics. From clothing to bandages, bed linen to industrial fabrics, new products integrating e-textiles are being created. The market has been slow to start due to many challenges, but with large companies investing heavily and releasing early products, this industry is poised to change very quickly as soon as the right conditions are achieved.

In their purest form according to the definition, e-textiles based on the integration of inherently electrically or electronically active fibres have begun to see integration into early products. However, with many associated challenges around reliability, performance and comfort, there has been a strong push towards other solutions that can achieve better properties including washability, stretchability and new functionalities. The result is a complex ecosystem of different material, component and connection options that are now available for product designers.

Key advances in the last five years have led to early commercial products, with the market having grown at double digit rate to reach around $100m in annual wholesale revenue today. However, with global giants from both apparel and electronics assessing the sector and building their strategies, analysts detail a likely scenario for growth over the coming decade. Specifically, the report describes how the significant investments being made will eventually enable mainstream commercial products, leading to a market approaching $5bn by 2027.
