  • Electronic Textile Market Driver:
    • Strong demand for wearable health monitoring devices:

This growth will likely be driven by growing demand for smart wearables and high-performance health monitoring equipment. Electronic textiles in the fitness and sports segment help train players and fitness enthusiasts and help improve golf swings, tennis serves and skiing techniques. Besides sports, defense and healthcare are the main end-user segments for wearable health monitoring devices. In the military and defense, these wearable devices are used to monitor and relay vital health statistics of soldiers in the field. It allows medics in the field and rescue teams to act immediately in an emergency. Moreover, these e-textiles are also used in personal protective equipment and clothing to reduce the extent of risks users are exposed to and provide them with suitable external stimuli based on the environment. Therefore, the introduction of highly functional e-textiles helps to monitor and improve the overall health of an individual. This will lead to high adoption of these wearable devices during the forecast period.

  • Electronic Textile Market Challenge:

E-textiles have a much higher price than regular textiles, as these products involve the incorporation of electronic components and technologies such as nanotechnology and BLE technology. The high R&D investments required for the development of these products also increase the final cost. Products based on advanced technologies such as nanotechnology and BLE technology are integrated into woven fabrics or textiles to develop e-textiles. The cost of producing these fabrics has increased over the years with the growing demand for textiles and woven fabrics. Additionally, total employment in the textile industry has increased over the years due to the increase in sales volume and costs related to the production of textiles and fabrics. Asian garment producers have faced a 5% increase in the minimum wage for employees since January 2016. High production costs of textiles and garments will also increase the cost of e-textiles and act as a barrier to market growth.
