The global synthetic leather market is expected to reach USD 85.05 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Globally increasing applications in foot wears has been a major factor driving market growth. In addition, increasing focus towards animal rights led by several organizations and rising stringency in laws governing real leather are propelling demand for synthetic leather.
Synthetic leather materials are competing with natural leather for over three decades owing to its superior properties such as high durability, strength, UV resistance, easy maintenance and high gloss finish. Cheaper prices of products made up from faux leather continue to attract huge number of customers from middle and high income level groups. However, in countries such as Japan, the product is facing competition from Fumikodata, which is a replica of real leather and is a cruelty free material.
