Owing to rising consumer preference towards health and fitness, growing disposable income, adoption of various sports such as snow sports, water sports, and mountaineering are augmenting the demand for sportswear resistive to water. Waterproof textiles are divided into various segments such as tents, sportswear, outdoor equipment, and industrial safety wears.

The introduction of latest developments in terms of smart breathable fabrics with water proof fabric is also a development factor augmenting the growth of the market. High demand of water proof textile by defense sector in terms of jackets, vests, and other clothes to ensure the protection of soldiers from the harsh climatic conditions in the battle field is a vital factor responsible for raising the demand of waterproof textiles.

However, varying consumer choices related to fashion and trends may hinder the growth of the water proof textiles market.

Geographically, North America is holding its influence over the market due to the huge demand of sports clothing and apparels in its regional territory such as the US, Canada, and others. Further, Europe is expected to grow rapidly. Asia Pacific is also anticipated to grow at a steady pace owing to rising demand for water proof textiles and rapid industrialization.

Waterproof textile is a fabric material which does not allow the liquid to penetrate into the interior part and works as a shield to resist the harsh climatic conditions such as rain, UV radiation, and to retain the body temperature. The fabric is ventilated with the help of infinite pores.

Waterproof textiles are basically coated synthetic or natural fabrics with rubber, silicone, elastomer, fluoropolymers, and wax. Based on recent development, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is the material used for making bottles and utilized for producing waterproof textiles.

Waterproof textiles are widely segmented based on raw materials through which they are processed as polyurethane, polymer, and synthetic microfilament.

Major key players in waterproof textile manufacturing are focusing on developing innovative water proof fabrics to increase their influence over the market.

The key players operating in the global waterproof textiles market include Heartland Textiles Co. Ltd., Columbia Sportswear, Dow Corning, Clariant, General Electric, Huntsman Textiles Co. Ltd., APT Fabrics, Archroma, Lowe Alpine, and WL Gore & Associates, Inc.
