Adapting to the portable electronics revolution

Dublin, October 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The “The global market for electronic textiles (E-textiles) and smart clothing” report was added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The emergence of electronic textiles and smart textiles adapting to the revolution we are witnessing in wearable electronics.

The development of high value-added products such as smart fabrics and clothing, wearable medical and consumer devices, and protective textiles has grown rapidly over the past decade. Recent advances in stimuli-sensitive surfaces and interfaces, sensors and actuators, flexible electronics, nanocoatings and conductive nanomaterials have led to the development of a new generation of intelligent and adaptive electronic fibers, yarns and fabrics for a application in electronic textiles.

Advances in the process capability of free-form printing circuits allow electronic systems to be assembled directly onto textile articles. This type of technology, electronic textiles, will compete with existing wearable devices that have dominated the market (smartwatches and fitness trackers), as a more discreet alternative to health and physiology monitoring. Electronic textiles integrate interdisciplinary studies such as textiles, nano / microtechnologies, computer systems and communication and information technologies.

Smart textiles, also known as smart textiles, smart clothing, and smart clothing, can be described as materials capable of sensing and responding to environmental conditions or stimuli based on thermal, mechanical, electrical, magnetic or other bases. They can be divided into two broad categories i) active smart textiles and ii) passive. Passive smart textiles can change their situation based on environmental stimuli while active smart textiles are equipped with sensors and actuators capable of detecting multiple signals from the environment and then giving a meaningful response.
