Unrivalled Smart Textile Expertise

Cientifica has been tracking the convergence of smart textiles and nanotechnologies for twenty years. We provide market research and consultancy on all aspects of smart textiles and wearable devices. The convergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), 3D printing and nanotechnologies are creating huge new opportunities for fashion and apparel. A growing number of products which integrate textiles with sensors to generate and respond to data and create new forms of wearable technologies are already on the market. Smart phones and smart watches are only the beginning, as wearables become disappearables as the device becomes the garment itself.
