Cooling fabrics comprise gel, polymer, or phase change materials (PCMs) that alter their insulating properties in response to the environment. These fabrics function by absorbing the heat and moisture and releasing them into the atmosphere, which further helps to improve the breathability and ventilation of the garments. They also assist in maintaining a comfortable body temperature during the physical performance and improving the overall well-being from scorching conditions. Besides this, due to their excellent thermal conductivity and tactile properties, cooling fabrics are utilized in the manufacturing of sports apparel worldwide.

Cooling Fabrics Market Trends:
The global outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the consequently rising need for personal protective equipment (PPE) like masks represent one of the main factors bolstering the demand for cooling fabrics to protect a wearer from heat stress. Moreover, cooling fabrics are used in heavy protective clothing or armors, which are worn by military personnel, firefighters, and staff working with the hazardous material cleanup. Apart from this, with the increasing number of sports enthusiasts across the globe, several manufacturers are offering cooling garments that maximize oxygen uptake, increase blood flow to the working muscles, and reduce the risk of inflammation during events. Furthermore, leading manufacturers are also investing in research and development (R&D) activities to produce a practical cooling garment that can lower the temperature of the brain in stroke and head trauma patients. Additionally, significant growth in the real estate sector is anticipated to influence the application of cooling fabrics in furniture upholstery.
