DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Smart Textiles for Military Market - Growth, Trends and Forecast (2018 - 2023)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The growing need for supportive and performance-enhancing garments has led to the rapid induction of smart textiles in the military sector. Smart textiles aim to reduce the weight of battery packs, electronic gadgets, connecting cables, etc.
Developments in the technology of sensors and actuators have enabled the production of miniaturized products, which can be integrated without significantly increasing the weight of military uniforms or other similar products. Nanotechnology is expected to play a major role in the development of the new generation of the army uniforms and equipment.
In April 2016, the University of Massachusetts and Institute for Soldier Nanotechnology were granted USD 75 million by the US Department of Defense, for the development of smart textiles. Additional funds amounting to a total of USD 242 million were provided by the participating states and private organizations, as a partnership in developing advanced functional fibers. Indian Army, the second largest in the world, requires 18.6 million modular bullet-proof jackets and is open for tenders for 10 years. The budget allocated for this procurement is about USD 150 million, with provisions for a vest modernization program.
