Energy harvesting and thermoelectricity function to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The science of energy harvesting materials has witnessed phenomenal progress in recent years. Technological advancements have enabled the development of new and distinctive molecular materials and devise artificial photosystems, and their applications are far more remote than the conventional solar cell technology. The basic principle of wearable devices and their way of hybridizing with PV cells includes the mechanism of thermoregulation in humans. The growth in the use of wearable, mobile, and electronic textile-sensing devices has increased the need for keeping these devices powered continuously. Many smart clothing providers have proposed the integration of energy harvesting capabilities into clothing, e.g., solar energy harvesting, which is one of the most investigated avenues due to the abundance of solar energy. Many start-ups and research institutions are actively involved in developing this technology.
Military and protection vertical to dominate the smart textile market during the forecast period.
In 2020, the military and protection segment accounted for the largest size of the smart textiles market and is also expected to hold its dominant position throughout the forecast period.
