Synthetic Leather Market:
Synthetic or Artificial Leather, also known as “leatherette”, “faux leather”, “vegan leather”, “PU leather” and “pleather” leather is a fabric made of artificial materials such as polyurethane (PU), polyvinylchloride (PVC) and other bio-based materials, which are processed, dried and heated to resemble real leather. Artificial leather consists of a cloth base which is coated with a synthetic resin so that it resembles animal hide on the surface. It is majorly used in applications where a leather-like finish and appearance is required but the real leather is cost intensive, unsuitable and prohibitive due to ethical reasons. Major applications of this product can be found in footwear, upholstery, furniture and fabric, among others.
The global footwear market is growing at highest CAGR and projected to retain the dominance in the market due to increasing standard of living and growing urban population around the world. In addition to this, increasing disposable income incentivizing people around the world to add value into their house, such as furnishing the house with an upholstery, which may fuel the demand of artificial leather.
The cost-effective nature of product has offered it a greater opportunity to substitute real leather in major end uses such as footwear, accessories, and sports. The polyurethane based synthetic leather is expected to witness substantial growth due its eco-friendly properties as compared to PVC-based leather. However, the major bottleneck in the growth trajectory of the global synthetic leather market includes, the harmful effects of processing of PU and PVC on the ecosystem and human health. The developed economies in Europe and North America have put in place stringent regulations limiting the use of toxic synthetic materials such as PVC and PU.
Regionally, Asia Pacific was the most impactful market across the globe, which has acquired highest global shares. This is attributed to the growth of footwear, automotive and construction industry.
