Smart textiles: Technical and market overview
Transcript of Smart textiles: Technical and market overview
What's smart textile?
Fight against the warmth & Cold:
Heat our body by stimulating blood circulation Examples: Snowing clothes
Cooling body and avoiding moisture
Sun protection: clothes which change color when we're exposed to a high level of sunlight.
Medical & relaxing properties
Measuring temperature, stress, strain, pain, gas & biological species
Detection of injury, health info ant transmission such info to medical staff.
Adapted Sheet, Towel with healing solution for Burnt victims
Relaxing sport clothes: calm pain and relax muscle
Frequency of washing
High performance needed
Strengths & Weaknesses
High quality and reliable performance.
Wide range of market: Sport, medical, fitness
Anti-aging, slimming, moisturizing properties
Smart textile is able to adapt and analyze a signal by responding in adapted way. Materials or structures react to environmental stimuli, such as mechanical, thermal, chemical, magnetic or others.
Smart Textile is the merger between textile and technologies.
Technologies used in Smart textile
We can distinguish 3 kinds of technologies in smart textile area:
photo-sensitive materials, fiber-optics, conductive polymers, thermal sensitive materials, shape memory materials, intelligent coating/membrane, chemical responsive polymers, mechanical responsive materials, microcapsules & micro and nanomaterials
For signal transmission, processing and controls
neural network and control systems, cognition theory and systems.
For integrated processes and products
wearable electronics and photonics, adaptive and responsive structures, biomimetics, bioprocessing, tissue engineering& chemical/drug releasing
Industry Department - May 2014
Worldwide textile industry:
50 millions metric tons/ year
The total market revenue for
Smart textile material
is expected to reach over
$ 2 billion by 2018
growing at an estimated CAGR of
from 2013 to 2018.
The industry experts opine that the wearable technology, from sophisticated gadget to smart textiles (smart fabric), would be the
next big market opportunities
The Smart textile market is segmented by material types, by material properties and by material’s embedded function.
Fitness & Medical application
