Alongside Myant’s exclusive partnership agreement for advanced knitting technology signed with Stoll A.G., Myant is now strategically positioned as the world’s go-to provider of textile computing expertise and manufacturing capacity with solutions that apply to industries including aerospace, automotive, healthcare, health and safety, military, performance apparel, and more.
Carlisle Interconnect Technologies is one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of high-performance wire and cable, including conductive yarns and connectors. Since 1940, CarlisleIT has grown its product portfolio to include specialty and filtered connectors, contacts, cable assemblies, complex harnesses, racks, trays and installation kits. CarlisleIT’s ARACON conductive yarns are ideally suited for use in smart textiles, with unparalleled washability, conductivity, and the strength of DuPont™ Kevlar®. ARACON yarns and braided EMI shields offer superior shielding effectiveness versus traditional copper wire solutions and provide significant weight savings in military, automotive and other smart textile applications.
As part of the agreement, Myant and CarlisleIT will combine their respective expertise related to textile computing and high-quality fibers and connectors to develop specific applications for use across industries. The two companies will also develop a collaboration for ongoing innovation towards next generation yarns and connectors.
In announcing the partnership, Tony Chahine, founder and CEO of Myant Inc., notes “Our partnership and exclusive agreement with CarlisleIT solidifies Myant’s leadership of the textile computing category, and our efforts to connect each of us to the world around us, and in so doing create proactive and anticipatory solutions for health, wellness and everyday living.”
He adds, “This partnership guarantees Myant access to the most conductive, high-quality computing yarn on the market, with a significant ability to scale production alongside Myant’s growth.”
John Berlin, President of CarlisleIT, notes that “our agreement with Myant puts us at the leading edge of a quickly evolving industrial category – textile computing – with significant potential to immediately impact CarlisleIT’s existing client base with new innovations and processes. We expect this deal will be significant to CarlisleIT’s short and long-term success in textile computing applications.”
Together, Myant and CarlisleIT are at centre of a transformation of advanced manufacturing and the culture of “making” in North America. As part of this agreement, CarlisleIT becomes a partner in Myant’s Digital Textile Factory initiative that seeks to democratize access to textile computing knowledge and assets. The Digital Textile Factory will give entrepreneurs, innovators and established industry players access to a virtual factory for ideation, research & development, access to yarns and connectors, and design and manufacturing at scale. In so doing, this initiative will propagate and democratize advanced manufacturing techniques and access to the most advanced textile computing machinery in the world. The Digital Textile Factory will also help establish and export standards related to textile computing and its use as a platform across industries.

Conductive Fiber Market Revenue is expected to reach US$ 1.3 Bn in 2019
Conductive fibers recorded a volume sales of approximately 42 thousand tons, equating a value of US$ 1.2 billion in 2018. As per the insights culled by the latest report of Future Market Insights (FMI), the global conductive fibers market is likely to spectate high growth over the course of the forecast period, driven by a plethora of factors.
The growth in sales can be attributed to the increasing use of conductive fibers in electromagnetic shielding, in light of growing electromagnetic pollution with the near-ubiquitous use of smartphones, smart watches, and similar electronic devices.
"Adoption of conductive fibers continues to face technical and commercial challenges w.r.t the sensor size on the technical front and limited awareness on the commercial front. Manufacturers prioritizing their investments in industry-specific development of conductive fiber are likely to add new application dimensions and revenue channels to the market, finds FMI's report".
Copper over Silver - The Base Material Shift to Look Out for
Future Market Insights' study identifies that the conductive fibers market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of approximately 11% through 2029. Manufacturers are shifting away from cotton and wool towards nylon and polyester materials, owing to the growing consumers' proclivity for synthetic fibers. The study finds that as conductive fibers market operates within the inner circle of the environmental norms, graphene has been emerging as cost-effective, compatible, and environmental-benign coating for the development of e-textiles.
Opportunities abound for conductive fibers manufacturers in Asia Pacific as identified by FMI's report with the establishment of manufacturing facilities of industries in developing countries such as India and China. Growing investments in the military & defense and aviation & aerospace sectors are likely to navigate the conductive fibers market to lucrative lanes as demand for tech togs and wearable electronics has been on a surge to beat harsh environmental conditions. However, intense focus on revamping the legacy military and defense infrastructure and a quest for technologically-forward equipment for army personnel has been channelizing high investments in the conductive fibers market in North America.
The study points towards the evolving preferences of end-use industries for comfortable plus cost-effective textiles, which has been instigating a shift of manufacturers towards the integration of copper from silver in electronic circuits. The report opines that silver being a rare material is cost prohibitive in nature, which makes copper a suitable material for the development of conductive fibers.
Conductive Fibers Market - Vendor Insights
Some of the leading players in the conductive fibers market encompass Toray Industries, Kuraray Co. Ltd., NV Bekaert SA, Seiren Co. Ltd., William Barnet & Son LLC, Ascend Performance Materials LLC, Perlon Group, Ronda Industrial Belts Technology Ltd., Swicofil
These players are focusing on expanding their business by marking their presence in overseas territories. In addition, manufacturers are seen working towards the expansion of their product portfolios by introducing feature-rich conductive fibers. As the study finds, the global conductive fibers market operates under the degree of fragmentation with large number of players striving towards acquiring high market share.
