About Smart Textiles

Smart textiles or smart fabrics are created by integrating electronic components into them to increase the functionality of the product. Some of the integral parts of smart textiles are sensors, actuators, and control units. These fabrics are capable of interacting with the environment and have the ability to react to physical stimuli from thermal, mechanical, electrical, and chemical sources. Smart textiles are capable of health monitoring, ballistic protection, and inducing technological applications like global positioning system (GPS) system and sensors. Many countries are increasingly emphasizing on providing smart textile-based clothing to soldiers, primarily for protection, safety, and better connectivity and coordination.

The analysts forecast the global smart textiles market for the military to grow at a CAGR of 9.6% during the period 2016-2020.

New Report Released: - Global Smart Textiles Market for the Military 2016-2020

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global smart textiles market for the military: BAE Systems, Midé Technology, Ohmatext, TenCate, and W.L Gore & Associates

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Advanced Fabric Technologies, BeBop Sensors, Directa Plus, DuPont, Intelligent Textiles, and Outlast Technologies

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “Nanotechnology is a field of science and technology dealing with an atom or molecule-sized particles (i.e., the tenth power of nine that cannot be seen with naked eyes). Advancements are happening at this nth degree of minuteness in the field of textiles and are transforming fabrics into enhanced smart textiles. Nanotechnology enables engineering of fabrics at a molecular scale. It also enables to create smart textile with superior properties. Nanotechnology plays a significant role in various fields of textile like nanofibers, nanocomposites, Nano-dyeing, and Nano-finish.”

According to the report, soldiers carry a substantial amount of weight during any combat mission including the equipment and protective clothing. Every piece of armor that soldiers wear except the eye protection consists of a textile component. Conventional blast protection systems and protective armor were bulky and caused fatigue, which affected the mobility of soldiers. However, the introduction of smart textiles in the military clothing has enhanced its capabilities and functions and also reduced the total weight that soldiers need to carry.

Further, the report states that smart textiles may not be easy to clean and maintain as sensors and actuators are integrated into them. This equipment is required to be kept away from chemicals and frequent washing, as even a small breakage in the continuity of the circuit may damage its proper functioning. Electronic components may get detached during cleaning, which again is likely to pose a threat when it comes to properly fitting back the devices onto the uniform.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
