Global Waterproof Breathable Textiles Market Expected To Reach $ 1981.4 Million By 2021 With A CAGR Of 5.6%

Date: 2017-08-01

The waterproof breathable textile is a type of fabric used in various types of garments to provide protection against weather conditions such as the wind and rain, while maintaining the body temperature. Waterproof breathable textiles, unlike other water-resistant fabrics, help to prevent both, water penetration and absorption, and are also anti-microbial, antiviral and provide resistivity towards dirt and dew; thus, accelerating their demand in various active sportswear applications. However, consumer involvement towards outdoor activities and the ongoing changing fashion trends may act as a roadblock to the growth of the market.

The global Waterproof Breathable Textiles market was estimated at USD$ 1508.9 million in 2016, and is anticipated to reach USD$ 1981.4 million by 2021, expanding at a CAGR of 5.6% between 2017 and 2021. Increasing demand for multifunctional and lightweight fabric in the sportswear industry is likely to foster the WBT market growth. The market for fitness-related sports products due to growing health awareness has generated demand for sports apparel and footwear, which is expected to fuel growth over the next few years. Waterproof breathable textiles are lighter weight, durable, and deliver more strength. Therefore, they have wide use across several outdoor sports products such as tents, footwear, backpacks, and other fabric-based garments or gears.

The products sector includes footwear, garments, and gloves. The waterproof breathable garment sector is anticipated to occupy a considerable industry share over the next few years. This is mainly due to the growing demands for WBTs in active sportswear as they provide high performance and benefit many customers, especially sports enthusiasts.

The applications segment comprises active sportswear. The WBTs allow complete prevention from the absorption and penetration of sweat or water during any intense physical activity, and thus these textiles are utilized extensively across active sportswear. In addition, WBTs are primarily utilized in the production of athletics, casual, outdoor, or ski apparel. All the above aspects are estimated to favorably impact the growth of the global Waterproof Breathable Textiles (WBT) market.
