Electronic Textiles Market Examined in Topical IDTechEx Report Published at MarketPublishers.com
11 Nov 2014 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – E-textiles (based on inherently electronically or electrically-active woven e-fibers) are expected to have an exponentially growing market but with a sluggish start as they are very challenging. E-textiles differ from bandages and bed linen, apparel to drapes, but the majority is in the lab not production. E-textiles are the ultimate way of manufacturing the smart apparel, being launched by Reebock, Adidas, and Nike, with the smart patches being adopted in health care at a rapid pace.
In comparison with these days’ wearable electronics, for instance, there is more opportunity to utilise true e-textiles for fashion than for infotainment. Still, both involve bright opportunities in merging medical, health care, fitness and wellness sectors. Winners are not be those presently dominating mobile phones and similar devices who are taking up leadership positions in smart glasses, headware, wristbands, etc., but the great many fashion houses, startups, medical electronics firms and so on. Europe is poised to be a leading competitor with its exclusive transnational development programmes which are exceptionally comprehensive across the emerging value chain. Timelines and approximate market size are given and development work appraised. The smart textiles may transition to being true e-textiles.
