Trend toward smart textiles is driving growth in microencapsulated PCMs

Ben Welter - Tuesday, December 09, 2014
The latest Frost & Sullivan research on the global market for microencapsulated phase change materials in textiles and mattresses is out. F&S reports that the industry earned revenues of $45.1 million in 2013 and projects that number will reach $99 million in 2018.

The report covers fibers, yarns, fabrics, foams and gels that incorporate microencapsulated PCMs. F&S says the trend toward smart textiles that comfortably regulate temperature is driving the use of microencapsulated PCMs in clothing and mattresses.
