The global conductive textiles market is expected to be valued at USD 4.29 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Rising awareness about the high-tech wearables that can protect the wearer, enable health monitoring, track the surrounding environment and provide protection from hazardous pollutants in the environment are the factors propelling market growth.
The augmenting demand from healthcare as well as military industries is proposed to accelerate the growth of the market. Expanding uses of conductive wearables to track the battlefield, protect the soldier from attacks and constantly monitor health are attracting conductive textiles in military and medical industries.
The increasing public funded research and development coupled with various other government incentives are projected to accelerate the production and thereby demand for the market. Various EU funded projects have drawn a number of manufacturers towards the market on account of developing innovative products to stay competitive in the market.
Military and healthcare segments are expected to collectively account for 56.6% of the global market in 2025. The demand for these segments is attributed to smart and easy to carry wearables that are flame, chemical, heat, moisture and perspiration resistant and enable the wearer to track his heart rate, breathing and blood pressure. The technological advancements in the products so as to enhance the conductivity and performance of the garments is likely to fuel the demand for conductive textiles over the forecast period.
North America is the leading region owing to the early adoption and acceptance of conductive textiles from the consumers. Extensive research and development carried out by leading manufacturers in countries such as the U.S and Canada is anticipated to propel the market growth. Technological advancements along with innovative product developments in the region are proposed to augment the demand for the market. Countries like Germany, U.K, China, India and Japan in the European and Asia Pacific regions are also rapidly developing markets for conductive textiles.
