Photoluminescent pigments are specialty pigments which possess a unique property of glow in the dark. In absence of any light source in dim and dark light conditions, photoluminescent pigments tend to emit light which opens up new areas of applications, especially in the field of textiles. This paper explores the concept of photoluminescence and factors affecting the performance. This paper also looks at the various applications that have emerged in the area of textiles while embarking on future scope of research and experimentation.
