E-textile Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

The high demand for health-monitoring wearables is notably driving the market growth, although factors such as high manufacturing cost may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the e-textile industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key E-textile Market Driver

The high demand for health-monitoring wearables is a major factor driving the global market share growth. This growth is likely to be driven by the rising demand for smart apparel and high-performance health monitoring equipment. E-textiles in the fitness and sports segment help players and fitness seekers in coaching as well as in the improvement of golf swings, tennis serves, and ski techniques. Apart from sports, defense and healthcare are the major end-user segments for health monitoring wearables. In the military and defense, these wearables are used to monitor and relay the vital health statistics of soldiers on the field. It enables on-field doctors and rescue teams to act immediately in case of emergencies. Moreover, these e-textiles are also used in personal protective equipment and apparel to reduce the extent of risks that users are exposed to and provide them with suitable environment-based external stimuli. Therefore, the introduction of high-functional e-textiles is enabling monitoring and improving the overall health of an individual. This will lead to the high adoption of these wearables during the forecast period.

Key E-textile Market Trend

The increasing adoption of BLE technology and miniaturization of electronic components is another factor supporting the global e-textile market share growth. This technology has a wireless personal area network that is enabled with connectivity to mobile phones for multi-vendor interoperability and low power consumption. With continuous research and rapidly emerging technologies, the integration of this technology with textiles is likely to improve during the forecast period. Also, BLE technology-enabled garments can sense and monitor data when connected to the Internet. In addition, BLE technology reduces power consumption in comparison to other power sources. There has been a continuous trend of miniaturization of electronic components and systems. This has expedited the need for smaller assembly components for the manufacturing of e-textiles. The core fabrics of traditional textiles are integrated with electronic components, which are then used for multiple applications, such as performance monitoring in the sports sector, health monitoring in the healthcare sector, and several other applications in the transport, military, and other related sectors. Essentially, Technavio estimates that the market will grow significantly during the forecast period.

Key E-textile Market Challenge

The high manufacturing cost will be a major challenge for the global e-textiles market share growth during the forecast period. E-textiles are priced much higher than regular textiles as these products involve the incorporation of electronic components and technologies such as nanotechnology and BLE technology. The high R&D investments required for the development of these products also add to the end cost. Products based on advanced technologies such as nanotechnologies and BLE technology are integrated into woven fabrics or textiles for developing e-textiles. The production cost of these fabrics increased over the years, with the growing demand for woven textiles and fabrics. In addition, the total employment in the textile industry has increased over the years owing to the increased sales volume and costs related to textile and fabric production. Asian apparel producers have been facing a 5% increment in employees' minimum wage since January 2016. High production costs of textiles and apparel will increase the cost of e-textiles as well and will serve as a hindrance to the market growth.

This e-textile market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.
