Market Sectors

Breathability is of relevance to the medical and hygiene market sectors, where bandages and dressings must be comfortable; to the interiors market sector, where chair coverings must be comfortable; to technical apparel, where garments must be comfortable even when worn in difficult or challenging circumstances; and to the sports and leisure market, where breathability is one of the most important factors in determining performance. The sports and leisure market is the major driving force behind the development of new breathable fabrics. For example, mountaineers strive to use the most breathable fabrics possible so sweat does not build up inside the fabrics, potentially causing dangerous cooling and loss of insulation.
