After entering 2022, the world will face the dual challenges of health and economy. When facing the fragile future situation, brands and consumers urgently need to think about where to go. Sports fabrics will not only meet people’s growing comfort needs, but also meet the rising voice of the market for protective design. Under the influence of the COVID-19, various brands quickly adjusted their production methods and supply chains, and then raised people’s expectations for a sustainable future. Rapid market response will promote the vigorous development of the brand.
As biodegradation, recycling and renewable resources become market keywords, natural innovation will continue to show strong momentum, not only for fibers, coatings and finishes. The aesthetic style of sports fabrics is no longer a single smooth and beautiful, and the natural texture will also be paid attention to. Antiviral and antibacterial fibers will usher in a new round of market boom, and metal fibers such as copper can provide good sanitary and cleaning effects. Filter design is also the key point. The fabric can pass through conductive fibers to complete deep filtration and disinfection and sterilization. During the period of global blockade and isolation, consumers’ independence will be significantly improved. They will also explore smart fabrics to assist and strengthen their exercise, including vibration adjustment, interchangeable and game design.
