Fast track: new uses for wearable health monitoring technology
published in Issue 25, 2nd Quarter 2008
According to Venture Development Corporation (VDC), a USA-based technology market research company, total sales of smart fabrics and interactive textiles (SFIT) for sensing and monitoring applications will grow by an average of 49.3% per annum between 2006 and 2010, from US$76.7 mn to US$380.9 mn.
Another market research company, NPD Group, predicted in 2006 that interactive apparel “will likely become a billion dollar business within the next two-and-a-half to three years”.
One reason for the fast growth in sensing and monitoring applications is that the technology is applicable to a wide range of lucrative markets.

Performance apparel represents one of the fastest growing markets in the global textile and clothing industry--and market growth is being fuelled by an emergence of new fibres, fabrics and innovative materials.
