Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “E-Textiles: Electronic Textiles 2016-2026” report to their offering.

E-Textiles: Electronic Textiles 2016-2026 is a comprehensive guide to all of the key techniques in use throughout industry and research today.

Key advances in the last five years have led to early commercial products, with a market of around $100m in 2015. However, as larger names enter the space and returns on the significant investments made start to surface, IDTechEx forecasts that the market will reach over $3bn by 2026, with ‘Sports & Fitness’ and ‘Medical & Healthcare’ being the two largest sectors.

The report describes the full value chain, looking from the material and component options, to the manufacturing challenges, through to the applications, markets and key end users. Trends by market sector are crucial, as the addressable markets are both large and diverse. The report characterises key market sectors including ‘Sports & Fitness’, ‘Medical & Healthcare’, ‘Wellness’, ‘Home & Lifestyle’, ‘Industrial, commercial, military’, ‘Fashion’ and ‘Others’ (including automotive). For each, we report on progress amongst key players and projects, as well as outlining the unmet needs and growth potential of each.

Finally, the report looks further into the future, describing the cutting-edge of e-textile research. Componentry such as photovoltaics, supercapacitors, batteries and even memory are made directly as a fiber. Materials such as carbon nanotubes, inorganic nanorods and piezoelectrics are integrated within textile structures, introducing new properties. Systems combining the best in conventional electronics with flexible sensors and actuators via bespoke connectors enable new product options. Whilst some of these options remain further in the future, we report on key findings that will impact the industry in years to come.
