Smart clothing is essentially electronic devices designed to communicate with connected devices (like smartphones) and the wearer’s body. Worth $668m in 2020, the global smart clothing market will expand to over $4bn by 2030, having grown at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21% over the 10-year period, according to the publisher forecasts.
