According to a recent report by Reports and Data, the garment active insulation market is projected to reach USD 277.2 million by 2027. The industry's growth is expected to be driven by the incorporation of advanced fabric manufacturing technology for insulation materials. The increasing popularity of footwear and sports apparel, driven by technological advancements in wearables and sporting goods, is also anticipated to contribute to market growth. Additionally, there is a growing demand for yoga apparel, activewear, and performance sportswear.

The industry has seen significant advancements in active sportswear fabrics to enhance functionality while ensuring comfort for athletes. Sportswear manufacturers are closely following developments in science, technology, and the market expansion of fibrous materials. The application of advanced textile science and technology in the production of sportswear and leisurewear fabrics is expected to fuel industry growth.

Operational methods such as polymer and fiber technology, fabric and yarn production techniques, modified fabric and yarn structures, and finishing techniques are being employed to obtain high-performance fibers. These methods are likely to have a positive impact on industry growth worldwide.

In 2019, the North American market was valued at USD 35.9 million, driven by the increasing popularity of outdoor sports and a focus on fitness and health. The region's demand for sports apparel, including basketball, baseball, football, tennis, and ice hockey, is expected to drive the demand for active insulation products.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the industry. The supply-demand gap has been exacerbated by insufficient raw material supply from Chinese producers, and manufacturers have faced challenges due to lockdowns and disruptions in the logistics industry. To mitigate future risks, manufacturers are likely to diversify their supply chains and reduce dependency on a single region.
