Published Date: April 18, 2017 Authors: Kiran Pulidindi, Hemant Pandey
Smart And Interactive Textiles Market size will surpass USD 6.5 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Advancements in the healthcare sector will be a significant driving factor for the global smart and interactive textiles market growth in the forecast years. Smart fabrics are slowly being used in wound dressing with pH sensors, bandages, gowns, hospital beds along with bio-monitoring of cardiovascular, neural, muscular, and respiratory activities. Continuous developments in treatment and disease prevention procedures encourage doctors to use sensor equipped textiles for better results. Global telehealth devices and services market will witness an exponential growth with CAGR above 50% in the next few years, propelling the smart and interactive textiles market demand. Several developed economies have implemented telemonitoring programs with smart textiles for cardiac patients in order to reduce the hospital readmission cost by continuously monitoring and recording the data through their sensor equipped clothing.
High product manufacturing cost and market retain price in comparison to conventional fabrics may pose a threat to smart and interactive textiles market growth in the forecast spell. The product is highly technology oriented with incorporation of specialized sensors and actuators to deliver its desired applicability. Product manufacturing required a collaboration between electronics, ICT, and textile sectors. Special treatment of fabric is required with materials such as silver nanocomposites, ceramics, etc. in order to inculcate the smart characteristics of the fiber, which increases the overall production cost, hampering the smart and interactive textiles market prospects.
