However, swimwear requires proper & systematic processing and designing of raw materials of various fabrics such as polyester, nylon, polypropylene, spandex, and neoprene to produce the desired texture, design, look, and other fashion attributes of swimwear. Price volatility of these raw materials affect the size of the swimwear market to greater extent.
