Newark, NJ, Oct. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global Waterproof Breathable Textiles market is expected to grow from USD 2.1 billion in 2020 and to reach USD 3.29 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period 2021-2028.

The Waterproof Breathable Textiles market is witnessing significant growth from the past years. This growth is attributed to the increasing adoption of products in the sportswear manufacturing sector due to their lightweight and durable properties. The rising awareness of fitness is having a favourable impact on the sportswear industry, thus increasing the demand for waterproof and breathable (WBT) fabrics. The increasing popularity of outdoor sports, coupled with the growing preference for comfortable and stylish sportswear and weather protection, is expected to affect the market positively.

Waterproof Breathable Textiles is referred to as textiles that are inherently or have been treated to become resistant to water penetration and wetting. The term impermeable refers to compliance with a specification and the specific conditions of a laboratory test method. Even whilepressing on a waterproof garment, it will still be waterproof. The amount of pressure exerted on the garment before starting to get wet varies, and the amount can be determined by checking the water column of the garment. The waterproof material is expected to protect against rain, snow, and wind fully and completely prevent penetration and absorption of liquid water. Usually, waterproof fabrics act as a barrier between body and the moisture in the environment. Waterproof materials can provide excellent protection from the elements. They cannot carry sweat through clothing to the outside, causing a person to get wet from the inside of the dress.


The factors driving the market are increasing product adoption in the sportswear manufacturing industry due to its lightweight and durable properties worldwide. The growing awareness of fitness favourably affects the sportswear industry, thus increasing the demand for waterproof and breathable (WBT) fabrics. The low cost and excellent breathable and waterproof properties of waterproof and breathable (WBT) materials increase the 'use in the production and design of uniforms. Waterproof and breathable fabrics are incredibly light compared to traditional alternatives, significantly reducing the weight of the uniform. Being environmentally friendly, they offer greater comfort than their petroleum-based options. Factors holding back market growth are the inability to anticipate or respond to consumer preferences. The gradual launch of bio-based breathable waterproof fabrics and polyurethane-based waterproof breathable fabrics are expected to provide market growth opportunities.
