Nanotechnology Presents Significant Commercial Opportunities for the Textile Industry

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on March 13th, 2007

Nanotechnology will allow for whole new textile constructions integrated into leading-edge applications for the use in the aerospace, automotive, construction, healthcare and sportswear industries. It presents a significant commercial opportunity for the textile industry, especially for health and medical applications, allowing for example round-the-clock patient monitoring.

This report describes nanotechnologies, nanomaterials, nanotechnology companies, universities and research centres related to smart and responsive textile applications. According to VDC, consumption in the smart and interactive textiles market is predicted to grow to US$720million by 2008. The main drivers were identified as their need in critical applications (e.g. health and survival), in luxury applications (with niche consumer markets), the practicality of some applications and the potential market size. Inhibitors on the other hand have been identified to be commercial prices, cost of material and a lack of standards.

This report describes nanotechnologies, nanomaterials, nanotechnology companies, universities and research centres related to nanotechnologies for smart and responsive textiles.

Areas covered include:

- Carbon nanotubes for electronic textiles

- Enhanced water and stain repellency

- E-Textiles for wearable sensing and actuation

- Shape memory polymers for intelligent textiles

- Magnetic nanofibres with anti-counterfeiting applications for clothing

- Nanofibres for aerospace, automotive, biomedical and orthopedic devices, textiles, ceramics, polymers, and advanced composites

- Nanofibres for wearable displays

- Bioactive wound dressings

- Nanofibres for protective textiles

- Textiles with new luminescent properties

- Enhanced colour fastness to fabric and textiles

- Self-cleaning Textiles
