E-textiles Market Size To Hit USD 13.96 Billion By 2030

Published Date : 08 Nov 2022

The global e-textiles market size was exhibited at USD 3.54 billion in 2022 and is expected to hit around USD 13.96 billion by 2030, poised to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2022 to 2030.

The e-textiles are gaining rapid traction across various sectors such as healthcare, military, and sports & fitness. The various benefits such as location tracking, wireless connectivity, motion tracking, and monitoring health conditions is boosting the demand for e-textiles. For instance, the e-textiles were used by the coaches to monitor the fatigue levels of the players, heartbeat, load on the body, and distances covered by the players in the FIFA World Cup 2018. Therefore, rising demand for e-textile technology in the sports and fitness industry is expected to exponentially drive the growth of the global e-textiles market. Furthermore, the military and the healthcare sectors are increasingly adopting e-textiles for monitoring the wearers’ bodies and health conditions. The rising research and developmental activities and the miniaturization of electronic components is encouraging the development of the e-textiles industry across the globe. The revolution in wearable technology owing to the rising penetration of digital technologies and its increasing adoption across various industry verticals is the most prominent driver of the global e-textiles market. Furthermore, the various developmental strategies adopted by the key market players is influencing market growth. For instance, in July 2021, DuPont announced the acquisition of Laird Performance Material, a prominent supplier of electromagnetic shielding and a provider of thermal management solutions. This would strengthen the position of DuPont in the global e-textiles market.
