Abstract
We will offer a historical overview of the emergence of fabric structures in Latin America, where, since the developments of wire meshes in the 60s, there was an evolution towards membrane structures. For this, example is taken from countries such as Brazil and Mexico, whose development began decades before the other countries in the region. We shall mention the actual situation and the challenges this industry has for the future.
