Conductive Textiles Market Dynamics Trends, Segmentation, Key Players, Application And Forecast

Press Release

Conductive textiles are fabrics that can conduct electricity. Conductive fabrics or textiles are materials made by coating or blending with conductive metals including gold, carbon, titanium, nickel, silver and copper.  Conductivity is established within thin layers by impregnation of the textile with thiophene derivative monomer followed by oxidative polymerization thereby, maintaining the flexibility of the textiles. Individual filaments within a fabric or yarn are uniformly coated with conductive formulations.

The global conductive textiles market includes fabrics of any composition and construction that could be coated and transformed into conductive textiles. Typical substrates include woven, non-woven, felts and knits of polyester, nylon, glass, quartz, spandex, polyolefins and aramids. Base-fabric materials include cotton, wool, polyester and nylon. These textiles are manufactured by inserting conductive additives or yarns or by using different conductive coatings. Conductive textile can be supplied as a cloth or as pressure-sensitive adhesive (PAS) tape, which has the ease of application to plastic housings in order to cover complex forms and shapes. Conductive textiles have low contact resistance and the tape version has superior adhesive force. The product shields electromagnetic interference (EMI) effectively.

Conductive textiles are used in various industrial applications to provide shield to electromagnetic interference. Conductive fabrics can be used to conduct electricity in small spaces, for static dissipation, EMI shielding, signal and power transfer in low resistance versions and in heating elements in higher resistance versions, in medical equipment such as electrodes and others.
