The sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the demand for smart textiles, especially in 2020 and 2021. The pandemic has forced companies to adopt remote working practices. The imposition of lockdown in almost all the major countries to curb the spread of COVID-19 has disrupted the supply chain and halted manufacturing activities, resulting in delayed production. However, as a large share of the global population is working from home and preferring to perform fitness activities indoors attributed to social distancing guidelines, the demand for sports and fitness apparel/accessories integrated with smart applications and sensors that can monitor heart rate and oxygen level has increased, which is expected to boost the growth of the smart textiles market. Besides, hospitals in some countries, e.g., the US, are using smart textiles in various forms, such as heated blankets and socks, during the pandemic crisis.

Active/ultra-smart textiles segment to have largest market share during the forecast period

The active/ultra-smart textiles segment held the largest market share in 2020. Active/ultra-smart textiles are embedded with electronic components such as sensors and actuators, which can sense and react to stimuli. They are used to make outfits used by sports persons, firefighting teams, defense personnel (bulletproof jackets), and other professionals. The use of textile-based products can be more comfortable when the textile is able to react to the environment.

Sensing function to have the largest market size of smart textiles market during the forecast period

In 2020, the sensing segment held the largest market size of the smart textiles market and is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Smart textiles find applications in the medical, sports, military, and aerospace sectors, where sensing and monitoring are already used and would only be made more efficient if integrated with textiles.

Military and protection vertical to have significant market size during the forecast period.

The military and protection segment is expected to hold significant market size of the smart textiles market during the forecast period. Smart textiles for military application offer various features such as advanced insulation properties and ballistics protection, as well as are made from waterproof fabric, while some are capable of health monitoring and equipped with GPS system, sensors, and motion trackers.

North America accounts for the largest share of the smart textiles market during the forecast period

North America accounted for the largest share of the smart textiles market due to several factors. One of the most important factors is technological innovations and advancements, which led to the introduction of new products. The increasing demand for smart textiles from the consumer electronics and medical industries has led to the growth of the smart textiles market in North America.
