Cooling Fabrics Market - Snapshot

Cooling fabric is a new and innovative product in the textile industry. Cooling fabrics are made of natural and synthetic textiles. They can be used by those who are sensitive to synthetic materials. Cooling fabrics allow consumers comfort by providing a cooling effect. They help in the evaporation of sweat and prevent the textile from clinging to the body. Important features of cooling fabrics include moisture circulation and separate evaporation.

Cooling fabrics aiming to reduce the surface temperature of the fabric. These fabrics differ from other thermoregulatory textiles; cooling fabrics allow the fabric to cool down in high temperature conditions, while thermoregulatory fabrics control the fabric temperature based on the surrounding weather.

Typically, material and technology used by manufacturers of cooling fabrics are proprietary. Enterprises enter into a partnership with leading textile companies and facilitate their business through investments, technology licensing and supply or contract agreements. Manufacturers of cooling fabrics often procure various types of fibers (synthetic or natural) and further process with chemicals, additives, or cooling finishes. These fibers are then used in the production of cooling fabrics.
