Smart Fabric Market

iCrowdNewswire   Feb 15, 2021  1:00 PM ET

Smart Fabrics refers to the fabrics that have embodied technological components woven into them. The fabrics are reinforced with electronic components to make the fabric more adaptable. They are currently used for limited applications such as the production of different sports and fitness apparel, healthcare, transport, fashion and design apparel, etc. It can be either of the two types – smart fiber aesthetics or smart fiber performance – that define their future applications. Some Smart Fabrics accumulate energy from the surroundings by extracting sound, heat, or vibrations that respond to these inputs. Based on the functionality, they are classified into Sensing, Energy Harvesting, Luminescence & Aesthetics, Thermoelectricity, and Others. Based on the end-user, the market is bifurcated into Sports & Fitness, Medical, Transportation, and Others.

The global smart fabric market was US$ 876.3 Mn in 2018 and expected to progress with CAGR of 26.8% from 2019 to 2027, reaching US$ 7,425.5 Mn in 2027.

Market Insights
