Blockchain is a technology that has changed the paradigm in various fields, as it is able to provide irreversible, network-wide, and securely encrypted proof of transactions. This article highlights the influential factors in the implementation of blockchain technology in the apparel and textile industry, while providing insight into the challenges in adopting this technology. This paper provides a literature review on the potential of blockchain technology in the apparel and textile industry to analyze its role in product traceability, transparency, and authenticity. To achieve this, the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) method helped in the identification, screening and eligibility process of finding relevant articles. The results of the research articles obtained were then analyzed and interpreted which included various authors, objectives, case study countries, data processing methods. The main findings of this study obtained 23 factors that have both positive influence and become obstacles. The conclusion from the interpretation of the results of most of the articles obtained has the aim of exploration of the implementation using data processing methods carried out mostly using descriptive analysis methods. The most countries used as case study locations are China. This research can also be a foundation for further research in analyzing influencing factors in the implementation of blockchain in the apparel and textile industry.
