The Future Market Potential for Smart Garments and E-textiles 2015-2016

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - February 15, 2016) -  Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The Future Market Potential for Smart Garments and E-textiles" report to their offering.

E-textiles (combining electronics and textiles) have been in development for over a decade now but commercial interest and success have, until recently, been relatively limited. Since 2013 however, the rapid growth of wearable technology has generated increased interest in the sector. Analysts predict that smart garment shipments in the fitness sector alone will reach 26m garments by 2016, outselling every other type of wearable device.

With smartphone shipments at roughly 1bn units compared to garment volumes of around 60bn units per year, it is perhaps unsurprising that major global brands like Adidas and Ralph Lauren as well as technology giants such as Intel and Google are now considering smart garments as a significant new growth opportunity.

This report will help those who want to discover the opportunities of this fast growing sector, understand potential threats and remain a step ahead of the competition.

Taking a deep technical dive into the futuristic world of electronic textiles and smart (connected) garments, the report provides a complete review of the current - and future - state-of-play in smart garments and e-textiles, covering: Key market drivers
