IMARC Group, a leading market research company, has released a report titled “Cooling Fabrics Market Report by Type (Synthetic, Natural), Application (Sports Apparel, Protective Wear, Lifestyle, and Others), and Region 2024-2032“. The global cooling fabrics market size reached US$ 2.6 Billion in 2023. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 5.0 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 7.2% during 2024-2032.

Cooling fabrics, also known as performance or temperature-regulating fabrics, are specialized textiles designed to manage and maintain the body’s temperature by providing a cooling effect. These fabrics are made with advanced technologies and materials to enhance comfort, especially in hot and humid conditions or during strenuous physical activities. They typically employ moisture-wicking properties to efficiently move sweat away from the body’s surface, allowing it to evaporate and cool the skin. Many cooling fabrics also incorporate phase change materials (PCM) or special coatings that absorb and release heat, helping to regulate body temperature. Some fabrics even have built-in ventilation features, such as mesh panels or strategic perforations to enhance airflow. Cooling fabrics are a testament to the intersection of textile engineering and comfort technology, offering practical solutions for staying cool and comfortable in different situations. As a result, cooling fabrics find extensive applications in sportswear, outdoor apparel, and workwear across the globe to enhance comfort and performance.
