In this report we identify the opportunities emerging from commercialization of smart textiles. These include textiles that are (1) fabricated from smart materials or (2) utilize sensing devices that are seamlessly integrated into the textile. The smart textile sector has taken off in the past few years, driven by the keen interest in the Internet-of-things (IoT) and enabled by the latest smart materials and powerful sensing devices. This report provides market coverage of the potential for emerging textile products where the textile is rapidly becoming the sensor.  The report also discusses how the latest generation of smart materials is expanding the market for advanced textiles. While the focus of this report is on the opportunity for smart textiles, we also discuss how the sensor industry can benefit from the latest trends in smart textiles and also how the supply chain for smart textiles is evolving.
