Membranes are expected to be a high growth segment over the forecast period owing to their capability to provide protection from UV-radiation, airborne pollutants and temperature variations.
On account of surging demand for waterproof breathable textiles in active sportswear, garments are expected to remain the dominant segment over the forecast period. Waterproof breathable textiles offer high performance as against traditional fabrics, thereby making them popular among consumers.
Waterproof breathable textiles demand in the active sportswear segment can be attributed to the rise in demand for antimicrobial, antiviral, dirt/stain/dew resistant fabrics.

Industry participants focus on offering environmentally viable products that are recyclable, PTFE-free and PFC-free. W. L. Gore & Associates was the market leader in 2013.
