Key Trends in the Market

Smart fabrics, also known as smart textiles, electronic textiles, intelligent fabrics, and smart garments, refer to textiles that can detect and respond to environmental conditions through embedded digital components. They provide improved functionality, safety, and performance to users.

 

  • One of the key smart fabrics market trends includes the rising emphasis on health and fitness, especially among the young population. Smart clothing supports customers in maintaining their optimal health and offers a personalised healthcare regime while stressing areas of improvement. The development of wearable textiles that can analyse the physical and mental health of a wearer to detect various health issues is anticipated to further fuel the market in the coming years.
  • The rising demand for smart wearable devices, the increasing amalgamation of fashion and technology, the surging popularity of the Internet of things (IoT), and the growing development of rechargeable, miniature, and flexible electronic devices are favouring the smart fabrics market demand.

In addition, with the surging popularity of wearable gadgets and increasing competition between key players, innovative and cost-competitive smart fabrics equipped with advanced technologies are increasingly being developed.

  • Sustainability has emerged as an important metric for the fashion industry due to high water consumption and greenhouse gas emissions during clothing manufacturing and excessive waste caused by fast fashion. This is fuelling the smart fabrics market expansion as smart textiles are emerging as a sustainable and ecological option to reduce garment waste, minimise the requirement for animal-based products, and facilitate recycling.
  • Increasing investments in technological advancements and innovations aimed at boosting the capabilities and functionalities of e-textiles are anticipated to propel the smart fabrics market growth in upcoming years. Moreover, researchers are revolutionising the market by developing innovative fabrics that can detect human motion, enhance the comfortability and flexibility of smart clothing, and generate energy through smart textiles.
