The report also states that the growing demand for interactive and smart textiles from the sports industry will fuel the market’s growth. But on the other hand, smart textiles are priced several times higher than conventional textiles. This will inhibit growth to a great degree, say TMR analysts.
The report segments the global interactive and smart textiles market on the basis of applications into: Industrial, transportation, medical and healthcare, military and defense, retail and consumer, and others. In 2013, the transportation industry represented over 38.0% demand for smart and interactive textiles globally. However, the automotive industry is now waking up to innovative ways in which smart textiles can be integrated into vehicles. However, the analysis conducted by TMR shows that use of smart textiles will soar in industrial applications in the future.
