If you already have an electronic subscription to Performance Apparel Markets, you can download the latest issue from their website.

The latest issue contains the following reports.

1. Developments in military clothing Military clothing plays a key role in protecting soldiers during combat. It needs to be strong and provide camouflage and comfort as well as protection against hazardous agents, bacterial infections, fire, and chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) agents. The terrorist attacks on the USA and the subsequent "war on terror" in Afghanistan and Iraq have resulted in a sharp rise in demand. The US Department of Defense alone spends more than US$2 bn a year on textiles and clothing. This report provides a detailed analysis of the military clothing sector - including information on research into materials which will improve the performance of military clothing and which could find their way into non-military markets in the future.

2. Profile of TenCate: a supplier of high-tech fabrics for military wear TenCate is a global leader in the supply of protective fabrics for safety wear, and is one of the USA's largest suppliers of fabrics for flame resistant military uniforms. Over the years, a series of acquisitions has broadened its operations, has provided it with access to new technologies, and has enhanced its position in niche markets for technical textiles for industrial workers, emergency responders, racing car drivers and combat soldiers. Its Defender M fabric reduces the risk of second and third degree burns by 45% compared with fabrics made from a blend of cotton and nylon. In this report you will find information on the company's development, its products, sales and markets, and its technology and manufacturing. In addition you will find details of its strategies and objectives, and an analysis of its financial performance.
