Examine How Nanotechnology is Set to Completely Revolutionise the Apparel Sector

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on April 17th, 2007

While nanotechnology is only in its earliest stages of development and application within the apparel industry, experts agree that nano-enhanced garments will likely become as expected and commonplace as attributes such as stretch, breathability and comfort. One thing is clear, if investment by other industries is any indication of market potential, apparel is on track to reap many benefits.

This exclusive report is the first in a series of timely Executive Briefings and provides a completely fresh look at how nanotechnology - by enhancing the functionality of fashion at all levels, from athletic wear to luxury - is set to completely revolutionise the apparel sector.
