Active insulation is used for consistent warmth, while permitting greater breathability during activity. The air exchange technique creates sustained comfort without shedding layers. Insulation traps air which has been warmed by person’s body close to skin and minimizes heat loss. Wind resistance would make the garment warm in, while more or less breathability will affect its suitability for active use, as with technical features such as hoods, baffles, and cut. Such features associated with the active insulation are expected to drive industry growth over the forecast period.
Rising demand for insulation from building & construction sector is the major factor which is expected to drive the global active insulation market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, growing need for activewear and sportswear for various activities such as sports, cycling, yoga, and workouts is expected to further drive business growth in the coming years. Increasing consumer expenditure on active and sportswear clothing is predicted to positively impact active insulation market growth in the near future. Consumers across the globe are shifting their focus towards healthy lifestyle, yoga, gym, and various fitness activities which would improve active wear products in the coming years.
Based on type, active insulation market is segmented as polyester, cotton, wool, and others. Many products such as jackets and quilted garments are made from polyester. Over the years, polyester has become one of the major materials in the textile industry owing to the features such as resistance to shrinking, stretching and quick drying. Polyester also offers several promising features such as low cost, high performance and suitability as a lining material. These favorable points pertaining to the usage of polyester as an active insulation material is expected to propel the growth of active insulation market growth over the forecast period.
