Global Fabric Moisture Management Technology Market Report

Spread the love

Dublin, April 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The « Moisture Management Technologies: Innovation in Performance and Comfort » report from Textiles Intelligence Ltd. has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Moisture management is the process of transporting moisture in the form of perspiration away from the skin to the outer surface of a garment where it can evaporate.

As such, moisture management is a key factor in efforts to maximise wearer comfort during physical activity. Originally, garments incorporating moisture management technologies were designed specifically for individuals who regularly engage in sternuous physical activity, such as extreme athletes, firefighters and the military.

However, given the comfort which they provide, moisture management garments are provided to be popular in applications which are less technical, such as athleisure apparel, loungewear and sleepwear. Much research effort has been concentrated in recent years on technologies enhancing the functionality of moisture management, and the latest innovations in moisture management fabrics boast additional properties such as antimicrobial efficacy, odor control and ultraviolet (UV) protection.

One of the most exciting developments in this field has been the introduction of fabrics which provide a cooling sensation as well as transporting moisture. In the years ahead, the pace of development is likely to accelerate as fabric and garment manufacturers compete to enhance the comfort properties of their product offerings further.

There will be a significant increase in the affordability, availability and choice of multifunctional garments, and this should foster continued growth in the market for moisture management fabrics.
