Overview of the global smart textiles market in the military sector

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global smart textiles market in the military sector to grow at a CAGR of close to 10% between 2016 and 2020. The growing need for supportive and performance-enhancing garments has led to the rapid induction of smart textiles in the military sector. Governments across the world are focusing on equipping their soldiers with the latest firearms including sophisticated military clothing that enhances soldiers' performance during combat operations. Moreover, the growing inclination towards camouflage optimization among military personnel has augmented the use of camouflage textiles in the military segment. These textiles not only protect the army personnel from visual and infrared light but also heat and sweat, subsequently ensuring that soldiers carry out their operations smoothly. Constant technological innovations in this market have led to an added range of functionalities and capabilities to smart textiles used in the military sector. Smart textiles are being integrated with adaptive insulation property to enhance warmth in military clothing, sleeping bags, and blankets. Also, manufacturers are developing smart textiles that have the potential for physiological and locational monitoring and energy harvesting.
