Conductive textiles market, projected to double its value in 5 years from now

An important trend to be observed by the professional textile care industry on medium and long term is the forecast for the global conductive textiles market, estimated to reach 2,11 billion USD in 2021, more than double than the value last year (1,02 billion USD in 2016).

A report released by Reportlinked shows also the main driver for this trend, which is the increasing demand from the military and defense sectors, but an important contribution is also brought by the sports and fitness category.

In terms of regions, the Asia-Pacific one is expected to grow at the fastest pace until 2021. China, India, Japan, and South Korea contribute to the high demand for conductive textiles in the Asia-Pacific region.
