Global Waterproof Breathable Fabrics Market: Raw Material Analysis

The outer layer of waterproof breathable fabrics consists of membranes and water repellent solutions, which are usually made of ePTFE (Expanded Polytetrafluoroethylene), PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), polyurethane, polyester among others. The primary purpose of these membranes is to protect the fabric from temperature variations, airborne pollutants, or UV radiation while increasing its aesthetic appeal. Waterproof breathable fabrics that have microporous membranes are used to make reusable medical gowns. For instance, the increasing demand for fabrics that are highly durable and multifunctional is projected to drive the demand for membranes.

Currently, suppliers are focussing on providing eco-friendly, recyclable, PFC-free, and PTFE-free membranes. They emphasize on providing membranes that are completely PFC-free and PTFE-free and use material made from polyester, polyurethane, and polyether. For instance, growing demand for low-cost resins that offer excellent waterproof and breathable solutions is projected to boost the polyurethane segment.
