This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Waterproof Breathable Textiles Market is accounted for $1.70 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $3.10 billion by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period. Increasing preference toward high-performance and comfortable fabrics and growing fitness awareness are the major factors propelling the market growth. However, increasing involvement in outdoor activities is hampering the market growth.


The waterproof breathable textiles are manufactured by merging and piling up cotton yarns together. When showing to water, pores of this densely woven fabric are swollen, thus dropping the size of pores in the fabric.

Based on the fabric, the membrane segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth due to its excellent mechanical properties and water resistance. Membranes are extremely thin films made from polymers, and engineered in such a way that they are highly resistant to water penetration, yet allow the passage of water vapour. A membrane is only about 10mm thick and is laminated to a conventional fabric to provide the essential mechanical strength.

By geography, Asia Pacific is going to have a lucrative growth during the forecast period due to the presence of a huge population with rising per capita income. Additionally, the region is witnessing rapid growth in the popularity of outdoor and indoor sports are generating a huge demand for sports apparel thereby pouring the demand for waterproof breathable textiles.
