Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Smart Textiles Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global smart textiles market: Clothing+, Interactive Wear, Intelligent Clothing, Ohmatex , and Sensoria.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Infineon Technologies, Texas Instruments, Schoeller Textil, and International Fashion Machine.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Increase in incorporation of BLE technology will be a key trend for market growth. Many electronic devices such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets incorporate BLE technology. BLE technology is wireless personal area network technology designed with connectivity to mobile phones, low power consumption, and multi-vendor interoperability. Research and emerging technologies are expected to improve the integration of this technology into textiles. Garments enabled with BLE technology can sense and monitor data, in addition to a number of applications, via a connection the internet. In addition, BLE technology reduces power consumption in comparison to other power sources.”

According to the report, miniaturization of electronic components will be a key driver for market growth. The focus toward the miniaturization of electronic components and systems is increasing, and the requirement for smaller assembly components for the manufacture of smart textiles is growing significantly. The core yarns of traditional textiles are integrated with electronic components to be used in several applications like monitoring vital signs in the medical sector; monitoring performance in the sports sector; and in transport, military, and other related sectors.

Further, the report states that integrating electronic components into textiles can prove to be challenging. Electronic components and textile sensors are sub-segment parts of smart textiles. Integrating flexible electronic components into textiles has major challenges like issues with deformation, and identifying lower deformation areas under dynamic operating condition using humanoid simulations. Besides, the major challenge of flexible electronics is the mechanical, electrical, and physical effects of assembling the 3D fiber flexures, caused due to stretching, bending, and torsion. These electronic components in the textile can also be impacted during cleaning, washing, drying, and ironing processes. Such challenges can lower the demand from end-users, and outline a number of potential constraints.
