While near-term demand remains modest in total available market terms, the longer-term potential for suppliers of SFIT-enabling technologies and SFIT-enabled solutions is significant. According to Chris Rezendes, Vice President at VDC, "The SFIT or textronics market represents an interesting investment opportunity right now. Military-industry partnerships focusing on SFIT are operating extremely well. Program managers and their industrial partners are balancing near-term DOD mission requirements, with mid-term industrial market demand and longer-term consumer market opportunities. The net effect should be feature-rich, reliable solutions that deliver enormous value to the DOD."
