Rising Demand from Sports and Protective Clothing Industry Expected to Drive the Global WBT (waterproof breathable textiles) Market

WBT is the fabric which resists the passage to liquid, but allows water vapor to pass through. WBT can block snow and rain and allows vapor from sweat to evaporate and hence they can be used as waterproof outdoor, rainwear, tents, sports clothing, protective clothing, gloves, footwear and other such applications. WBT are segmented based on the density of pores per unit millimeter and the capacity of the fabric to endure the pressure of liquid without leaking.

The segments of WBT on the basis of pore density are membrane, densely woven and coated textile. The applications and the quality of the WBT depends on the factors such as water resistance and moisture vapor transmission. Water resistance of WBT is measured by the amount of water (in mm), which can be suspended above the fabric before water seeps through. Moisture vapor transmission or breathability rate is calibrated in grams of water vapor that passes through per square meter of fabric in 24-hour period. The growing demand for advanced high quality sportswear and protective clothing is anticipated to drive the global waterproof breathable textiles market.

Extensive Demand from Developing Countries Projected to Propel the Global Waterproof Breathable Textiles Market in the Next Eight Years

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for WBT in the next few years, primarily due to increasing demand for sportswear and protective clothing in developing countries in Asian region. The consumption of waterproof breathable textiles in emerging nations in the Middle East and Latin America are also rising at a stupendous rate. The countries such as Qatar, India, China, and Brazil have witnessed rapid growth in the sportswear and protective clothing industries in the past few years. There is massive growth potential for industrial protective clothing in developed countries across the world due to growing high safety standards applied in these countries. Additionally, countries such as Brazil and Qatar are hosting large events such as Olympics and the FIFA World Cup in the next few years.

These countries are also developing numerous state-of-the-art stadiums and other infrastructure for these events. Hence, demand for protective clothing and sportswear is projected to increase significantly in the next few years. This, in turn, is estimated to fuel the consumption of waterproof breathable textiles significantly in these developing nations during the forecast period. In addition, countries in the U.S. and Europe are steadily recovering from an economic crunch. All these factors are generating a positive outlook for the global industrial scenario. Hence, industries including manufacturing and construction are anticipated to witness substantial growth during the forecast period. This is likely to boost the consumption of waterproof breathable textiles considerably in the next few years.
