The waterproof Textile Market is forecast to reach $1.9 billion by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 6.2% during 2022-2027 due to growing adoption in the sports and fashion apparel manufacturing industry owing to its lightweight and flexibility. Waterproof textiles are produced from materials such as polyester, polyether, polyurethane, polytetrafluoroethylene, and others which are cost-effective and lightweight. Thus, these polymers make them ideal for footwear, gloves, waterproof garments, outdoor floors, and other applications. Waterproof textile offers water vapor permeability, high-density, optimum heat, and moisture regulation which makes them suitable for the fashion apparel industry. Hence, due to such properties, the consumption of waterproof textile is growing from the fabric industry which is estimated to grow the market size during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19

In the tragedy of COVID-19, various industries got highly affected and also various manufacturing plants were shut down during the lockdown period. This COVID pandemic is having a noticeable impact on global economic growth. This has affected the demand and supply chain as well, which also declined the consumption of waterproof textiles.

Key Takeaways

The Asia Pacific dominates the market of the waterproof textile market due to growing consumption from the footwear and garments industry in developing countries such as China and India.

Increasing demand for waterproof textile materials such as polyester, polyurethane, and polytetrafluoroethylene as these are lightweight materials and provide flexibility to the fabrics.

Growing usage of waterproof textiles as they used to manufacture waterproof jackets, footwear, bottoms, sails, leisurewear, and gloves is driving the market.

Waterproof Textile Market Segment Analysis - By Raw Material

Polyurethane leads the global market of waterproof textiles in 2020 followed by polytetrafluoroethylene, as it gives appearance and flexibility to the fabrics. Polyurethane consists of a thick layer coating that enhances the performance abilities of fabrics and makes them ideal for wind and waterproof outerwear. Additionally, polyurethane has no solvents and does not produce harmful toxins, and also, they can withstand heat. Apart from this polytetrafluoroethylene offers has high abrasion resistance, high tensile strength, excellent flexibility, and lightweight. Thus, these materials are used to manufacture waterproof textiles.

Waterproof Textile Market Segment Analysis - By Fabric Type

Dense woven leads the global market of waterproof textiles in 2020 as it has water repellent properties. Densely woven waterproof breathable fabrics consist of cotton or synthetic microfilament yarns with no pores for water to penetrate. Additionally, dense woven provides a durable waterproof repellent coating to make fabrics waterproof. Hence, due to such properties, dense woven is widely used for waterproof textiles.

Waterproof Textile Market Segment Analysis - By Application

Membrane dominated the global waterproof textile market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 6.9% during 2022-2027. Membranes are employed to protect their wearer against climate agents such as wind and water. Membrane made from a polymeric material and offer high resistance to water with a maximum thickness of 10micreons. Waterproof membrane fabric can let the sweat as water vapor from inside to outside. Additionally, microporous membranes are thin films of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene polymer and hydrophilic membranes are thin films of modified polyester or polyurethane which provides mechanical strength to the fabrics. Hence, due to the excellent water resistance of the membrane is estimated to grow the consumption from waterproof textile.

Waterproof Textile Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

Asia Pacific dominated the global waterproof textile market in 2020 with a share up of 38%, due to increasing demand from the footwear and clothing industry in Asian countries such as India, China, and others. Textiles are made from materials such as polyester, polyurethane, polytetrafluoroethylene, nylon, and others. These materials are used to manufacture the soles of waterproof footwear which protect against water and provide better traction indoors and outdoors. Thus, increasing the footwear industry and textile market is estimated to grow the consumption of waterproof textiles. China is the largest footwear exporter in the world. According to the International Trade Center (ITC), exportation growth in the quantity of footwear (with outer shole of rubber, plastic, and leather composition) was 73% in 2017-2018 in China. Also, the Indian technical textile market is estimated to reach US$ 23.3 billion by 2027 which is estimated to grow the demand for waterproof textiles.

Waterproof Textile Market Drivers

The Growing Footwear Industry is estimated to grow the demand for Waterproof Textiles

Waterproof textile fabrics are made from polymer materials such as polyester, nylon, polyurethane, and others which makes them durable, flexible, lightweight, cost-effective, and provide higher strength. Some waterproof materials such as rubber and polyvinyl chloride are often used to manufacture the waterproof sole for footwear. Rubber provides better traction indoors and outdoors. Additionally, PVC materials protect against chemical spills and provide indoor traction on wet floors. Thus, the increasing footwear industry is estimated to grow the demand for waterproof textiles. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India is the world’s second-largest consumer of footwear. The leather products and footwear market in India are estimated to be about US$12 billion in 2021. Hence, the growing demand for footwear is estimated to grow the market size.

Waterproof Textile Market Challenges

Increasing Preference towards Smart Textile

Increasing demand for smart textiles is a huge challenge for market growth. Smart textiles provide superior thermal insulation and protection against wind. Smart textiles also called electronics textile protects against such environmental hazards as radiation is also being used to protect the military from extreme heat and other harsh conditions. Hence, smart textiles provide environmental protection during the production process than waterproof textiles, which may hinder the market size.
