Scope of the Study
Smart textiles, or smart fabrics, are fabrics that allow digital components such as a battery & light, and electronics to be embedded in them. They have been designed and manufactured to include technologies that provide the wearer with increased functionality. These textiles have several potential applications, such as the ability to communicate with other devices, transform into other materials, conduct energy, and protect the wearer from environmental hazards. There are three types of smart fabrics and textiles such as active, passive, and ultra. It is extensively used in military, civil, healthcare, among other applications.
The market study is being classified by Type (Passive Smart Fabrics and Textiles, Active Smart Fabrics and Textiles and Ultra-Smart Fabrics and Textiles), by Application (Military Uses, Civil Uses, Healthcare Uses and Other) and major geographies with country level break-up.
Textronics, Inc. (United States), Milliken & co (United States), Toray Industries, Inc. (Japan), Peratech (United Kingdom), DuPont (United States), Clothing plus Oy (Finland), Outlast Technologies (United States), d3o lab (United Kingdom), Schoeller Textiles AG (Switzerland) and Texas Instruments (United States) are some of the key players profiled in the study. Additionally, the Vendors which are also part of the research are Ohmatex ApS (Denmark) and Pireta Ltd (United Kingdom).
