Waterproof breathable textiles are manufactured for making garments. Waterproof breathable textiles provide protection from wind, rain, loss of body heat and also provide active ventilation to the end-user. They are not only manufactured to avoid water but also permits water vapor to diffuse. Waterproof breathable textiles are also utilized in producing sports wears. It helps to maintain and control the body temperature in definite range. Waterproof breathable textiles consist of an outer layer called the face fabrics, usually made of nylon or polyester, and a laminated membrane or coating, usually made of ePTFE or PU. The breathable fabric passively allows the water vapor and prevents the penetration of liquid water for comfort clothing. The breathable are very much better than fabric coated with conventional water proof materials, which have a higher resistance to vapor transport than ordinary woven and knitted apparel fabric.Waterproof Breathable Textiles Market accounted for US$ 1.7 billion in 2019 and is estimated to be 2.6 billion by 2027 and is anticipated to register a CAGR of 5.7%.
