Increasing commercial promotion and surge in online shopping are the recent trends that are contributing to the growth of the Compression Garments product segment
The prominence of compression garments is rising in exercise settings and sports because of a lot of commercial promotion. Another reason for the increasing popularity of compression garments in sports is that it is believed that the compressive properties of garments can enhance performance and aid in recovery after strenuous training. Compression garments are particularly popular among athletes and those who participate in recreational exercises. The segment has sparked media attention in swimming and in other sports such as track and field events. For instance, Nike swift suits that are head to toe provide athletes with a swimsuit with reduced drag and increased aerodynamics. This swift suit is also suitable for other sports such as speed skating and cycling.
Online shopping is not only convenient but also economical as online stores offer prices at much lower rates than the physical stores. Besides, physical stores have a limited array of products. Physical stores always make sure that they lure the customer to buy additional items along with what they actually needed. Online shopping of compression garments is a new favourable trend that is automatically driving this segment’s growth.
Military and sports are two professions where there is always an experimentation with innovative research in textiles. Exciting innovations are emerging in smart textiles and nanotechnology and the sector’s growth prospects are helped by the fact that there has been an increase in demand for performance features in mainstream fashion. For instance, Nanotechnology has a real commercial potential in the textile industry. Nanotechnology can provide high durability fabrics because nano-particles have a large surface area-to-volume ratio and high surface energy, thereby presenting better affinity for fabrics and leading to an increase in durability as a function.
