Market analysis of leather goods
Technavios market research analyst predicts the leather goods industry to grow at a CAGR of around 4% during the forecast period. The rise in export of leather is the primary driver for the growth of this market. For instance, during 2014, the US exported hides, skins and semi-processed leather which generated a revenue of around USD 3 billion. China, Taiwan, Korea, Mexico, and the European countries were the biggest importers of leather products during 2014. Moreover, the growth of the global automobile industry is also fueling the demand for leather upholstery.
The growing demand for organic leather products is expected to contribute to the market growth during the forecast period. Conventional leather tanning has a disastrous effect on human health and also creates an ecological imbalance. Eco leather is organically tanned where the tanning process includes using plant tannins, vegetable tannins and smoke for the process. For instance, Natureally, a UK-based vendor, uses only certified leather from selected British farms. The leather is chrome-free, environmentally friendly and is certified free of harmful substances by the German certification body TUV Rheinland.
