Smart technologies are present in every modern industry. The textile and garment industry has also progressed in tandem with the transforming technologies to correspond to consumers’ demand for textile and garment with additional functions such as healthcare, safety, or raising the standard of living. At the moment, the top three countries with the most number of smart textile patents are China (40.8%), the United States (25.1%), and the EU (11.9%).1

Japan is one of the countries that recognize the potential of smart textiles as the government expects it to be one of the country's key economic forces with the potential to grow by over 2000%. The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has also endorsed an establishment of a “Study Group for Higher Quality of Life through Utilization of IoT and Other Digital Tools Introduced into Lifestyle Products” to specifically study the future opportunities of smart textiles and fashion technology.2

Smart textiles are the future of the textile and garment industry. If entrepreneurs stay on top of the global trends, new technologies and various factors that can empower business, there will be more business opportunities to be gained as well as helping to contribute to the country’s overall economic development.
