The Global E-Textiles & Smart Clothing Market size was USD 1.76 billion in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 7.17 billion in 2021 to USD 15.36 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 32.3% during the forecast period in 2021-2030. E-textiles and smart clothing keep track of the wearer's health. Smart shirts and body suits send biometric data to specified apps in real time, including temperature, heart rate pattern, pulse rate, any physical movement, and other essential physiological information. Smart textiles can improve performance and functionality in a variety of settings, including military, healthcare, sports, and more. Fabrics used in smart clothing are designed to manage body temperature, minimize wind resistance, and modulate muscle vibration, all of which can help athletes perform better. The electronics and photonics sectors have affected the creation of E-textiles. Smart clothing, which is an extension of functional fabrics, is created by combining sensor arrays and plastic optical fibre (POF).

Textile Type Outlook
The active smart segment accounted for the larger market share for the global e-textiles & smart clothing market. Active smart types have the ability to sense and react to stimuli; this trait is useful in a variety of applications in most end-user sectors, such as heat storage and transmission using phase-change materials. Outfits for sports, firefighting, defence (bulletproof jackets), and other vocations are made with this type. When a textile material can react to the environment, it can make textile goods more pleasant. As a result, in recent years, the market for active smart textiles has exploded.
Product Type Outlook
The upper wear segment accounted for the larger share of the global e-textiles & smart clothing market. An upper wear may collect physiological data like heart rate, breathing rate, and muscle activity, which can be used to improve professional performance and workout routines. Data is collected in real time and delivered to the companion app, which provides information on a variety of sporting variables such as intensity and recovery, calories burnt, exhaustion level, and sleep quality. As a result, throughout the projected period, the increased use of upper wear for various end-user applications is likely to generate possibilities for smart clothing providers.
End User Outlook
The sports & fitness segment accounted for the larger share of the global e-textiles & smart clothing market owing to heart rate monitoring sports bras and heated underwear, for example, are already using sensors in clothes and innerwear. Because of the increased usage of sports bras that use sensors to track running distance, breathing rates, and heart rates, there is a growing demand for smart innerwear in the sport and fitness market. As a result, the market for sports and fitness innerwear is expected to increase significantly in the future years.
