Global Functional Workwear Apparel Market: Overview

Functional workwear is clothing designed to protect workers from hazards of their workplace. A major demand for these products in the market in recent times is coming from people looking for sportswear and ‘athleisure’ garments. Today, industrial workers are employed for longer hours in less than ideal conditions. Hence, modern workwear is expected to be comfortable and resilient, keeping the individual’s safety at the forefront of thought. Thus, traditionally comfortable materials like cotton and wool are being incorporated intelligently with synthetic fibers and plastics to give a product that is fit for work and the worker. This is leading to higher demand for functional workwear apparel. As per Transparency Market Research, from 2020 to 2030, a stead compound annual growth rate will be recorded in the landscape of global functional workwear apparel.
