To protect the electronic devices and gadgets from water, sand, and other potential hazards there is a need for a waterproof bag. Waterproof bags are made up of synthetic and natural fabrics, which are coated or laminated with waterproofing materials such as silicone elastomer, polyurethane, polyvinylchloride, rubber, and wax. Depending upon the waterproofing principle, there are different types of waterproof bags available in the market, such as DryCase Tablet and TrendyDigital Waterproof Case. In these bags, there is a vacuum seal from which air is pumped out once it is sealed, in order to avoid sand and water from reaching the device inside it. Waterproof bags market has been expanding at a significant growth rate over the last two decades. These bags find applications in the defense, marine, trekking, and electronics industries. They are mostly used by travellers to protect their mobiles and cameras from sand, water, etc.
