Rising Awareness Regarding Leather Goods and Surging Spending Power Drives the Leather Goods Market

Wed, 02 December 2020 3:57

Leather goods are predominantly popular among consumers, as they have inherent qualities. It is crack-proof, dustproof, fireproof, and durable, which is most likely to increase the growth of the leather goods market. However, in the U.S., stringent government regulations, such as Dog and Cat Protection Act, have prohibited the imports of canine and feline hide skin, which have compelled the leading manufacturers to adopt synthetic leather. Also, IBEF expressed that India represents 13% of the global leather production and 10% of the footwear production. With the animal welfare organization imposing a ban on animal-based leather, the leather industry is now shifting towards synthetic leather. 

The footwear industry is expanding rapidly across Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Europe, which will impact the leather market. The global demand for designer and comfortable footwear provides an impetus to market growth. Asia-Pacific is the largest market of footwear on account of rapid urbanization and the rising influence of western culture. North America is assessed to be the second-largest producer of footwear, with the U.S. being the market leader.
