The analysts forecast the Global Smart Fabrics in Interactive Textiles market to grow at a CAGR of 20.91 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing need for improvements in textile materials. The Global Smart Fabrics in Interactive Textiles market has also been witnessing rapid technological advancements. However, the slow rate of adoption of smart fabrics in certain end-user applications could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. 

The report, the Global Smart Fabrics in Interactive Textiles Market Report, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market in North America, Europe, the APAC region, and ROW; it also covers the Global Smart Fabrics in Interactive Textiles market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The increase in technological advancements has led to an increase in the usage of various SFITs. For instance, athletes are increasingly using SFITs with physiological monitoring and motion supervision support to assess the effectiveness of their training programs and improve their performance. This has led to increased consumption of SFITs in sportswear. Another example is the development of technologically advanced bodysuits worn by cycling teams designed to reduce air drag. Thus, the incorporation of modern technologies into SFITs is expected to positively influence the growth of the Global SFIT market.

According to the report, one of the main drivers of this market is the advancements in textile materials and structures. Manufacturers of textile products are increasingly aware of the long-term cost and performance advantages of SFITs compared with traditional textiles. This has led to increased advancements in the fabrication methods of SFITs.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by this market is the slow rate of adoption of smart fabrics in interactive textiles in various end-user applications. The market is heavily influenced by the high price of the products, which leads to less spending on SFITs by consumers.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
