The Global Market for Nanotextiles

0

The Market for Nanotextiles broadly encompasses:

  • Nanocoated/finished textiles (e.g. anti-bacterial nanocoatings, self-cleaning, flame retardant nanoclays). Most nano-enabled textiles on the market fall into this category.
  • Nanocomposite textiles fibre materials (e.g. CNTs integrated into manufacture for enhanced strength; smart textiles with sensor elements; conductive textiles; shape memory textiles).
  • Nanofiber textiles (electrospun nanofibers for protection, conductivity etc.)
  • Nano-based non-wovens (e.g. barrier nanofilm integrated in layers).
  • E-textiles/wearable electronics incorporating nanomaterials.

The development of high value-added products such as smart fabrics, wearable consumer and medical devices and protective textiles has increased rapidly in the last decade. Recent advances in stimuli-responsive surfaces and interfaces, sensors and actuators, flexible electronics, nanocoatings and conductive nanomaterials has led to the development of a new generation of smart and adaptive electronic fibers, yarns and fabrics for application in E-textiles.
