The Latin America, Middle East and Africa Conductive Textiles Market would witness market growth of 17% CAGR during the forecast period (2019-2025).
Conductive textiles are used in several industrial applications to protect against electromagnetic interference. Conductive fabrics can be used to conduct electricity in narrow spaces, for static dissipation, signal and power transmission in low-resistance versions, EMI shielding, and for heating elements in higher-resistance models, in medical devices such as electrodes and others. In the healthcare sector, conductive textiles can be used for both clinical and non-clinical applications. These textiles are structured to provide both comfort and versatility at the same time. Textiles can enable health care providers to track and communicate the conditions of patients as they can identify, acquire, and transmit physiological signals.
The African textile industry is a diverse one, but its cotton industry is the perceived constant. Many countries in Africa are currently growing and selling cotton. Six of them grow cotton under the 'Cotton made by Africa' mark, which is also one of the largest producers of employment, with 450,000 Africans employed in the cotton industry. Nevertheless, the growth and selling of cotton are not all about their textile industry. South Africa is also getting involved in technical textiles by providing aeronautics companies with hemp for their products. Countries like Ethiopia are also beginning to gain textile mills that employ locals and help companies to avoid rising wages in countries such as China.
The share of Central and South America in the overall market was low due to the limited presence of the application industries. It is expected that the nylon fabric type will dominate the conductive textile market in Brazil. Increasing understanding of the smoothness and durable properties of nylon is commonly used as a raw material for the production of conductive garments. The growing emphasis on new product development, innovations and research and development activities is expected to generate growth opportunities for leading players operating in the global market during the forecast period. In addition, new developments in the market in several developing countries are expected to show a positive trend.
Based on Fabric, the market is segmented into Polyester, Nylon, Cotton and Wool. Based on Product, the market is segmented into Woven Textiles, Non-Woven Textiles and Knitted Textiles.
