Enjoy 50% off "Smart textiles and clothing: opportunities for providing comfort, functionality and insight into consumer behaviour and lifestyles" during January 2019.
 

Clothing is considered to be an ideal platform for the integration of smart technologies as humans spend 90% of their lives in contact with textiles.
 
To date, most products within the smart textiles and clothing market have been tailored towards sport and fitness applications and military uses—where they are capable of monitoring the vital signs of soldiers and can help to improve the safety of soldiers in combat.
 
But there is also huge potential for using smart textiles and clothing to transform patient care and improve safety and efficiency in the workplace.
 
However, a number of challenges need to be overcome for the industry to fulfil its potential—notably those relating to environmental sustainability, legislation and standards.
 
Many experts believe that, such is the pace of development, textile computing products may be in common usage in five to ten years—by which time there may not be a need for mobile telephones as they may be replaced by functional clothing.
 
"Smart textiles and clothing: opportunities for providing comfort, functionality and insight into consumer behaviour and lifestyles" is a 51-page independently researched report from Textiles Intelligence—a leading provider of business information on the global textile, fibre and apparel industries.
 
During January 2019, purchase "Smart textiles and clothing: opportunities for providing comfort, functionality and insight into consumer behaviour and lifestyles" for half the usual price and pay only:

  • US$375 (if you are in the Americas or Asia Pacific); or
  • Euro285 (if you are in Europe, the Middle East or Africa); or
  • £155 + VAT if you are in the UK.

 
(These prices are for single named user licences only. Multi-user licences are also available. Please ask us for details.)
