Sažetak

Textile materials are used in all kinds of sports as sportswear in the form of shorts, T- shirts, tracksuits, swimwear, compression garments etc. Except for making clothes, textiles are used as an integral part of sports equipment or part of sports footwear. Also, technical textiles are widely used for production of sports accessories to provide additional comfort, support, and functionality. The application of textile composites in sports equipment has proven to be very useful, not only for improving overall performance but also in controlling every possible feature, leading to safer and fairer sports.
Sports textile is a growing industry and participates with 7.3 % in the global technical textiles market. Generally, textile materials used in sportswear have high heat and moisture transport capacity, lightweight, fast-drying capacity, and elasticity. These materials also have superior strength and durability. The latest textile materials used to make sportswear have different functional properties in order to meet the specific requirements in various sports activities. Consumption of textile materials in sports has increased significantly in the last few decades. This is due to the growing interest of the world population in sports and fitness activities, coupled with growing awareness of the importance of active lifestyles, drives demand for sportswear and equipment.
