Moreover, with the growing popularity of outdoor sports and recreational activities, such as hiking, camping, cycling, and motorcycling, is a major driving factor. Besides, the changing weather patterns and altering climate conditions in different regions are significantly strengthening the demand for rainwear. Apart from this, several major companies are heavily investing in developing environment-friendly and plant-based variants that are produced using recycled and biodegradable materials, which is providing a boost to the demand. Additionally, numerous major companies are offering a wide range of designs, colors, patterns, and fabrics that offer improved functionality, allowing rainwear to be more comfortable, durable, and resistant to water penetration, thereby providing a boost to the market. In line with this, the growing awareness and concerns for environmental issues are also augmenting the demand for sustainable and eco-friendly rainwear options. Furthermore, the augmenting emphasis on maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle is fuelling the market as individuals who prioritize outdoor exercises, such as running or hiking, are more likely to invest in rainwear to continue their activities in turbulent weather.
