Impact of COVID-19 on Synthetic Leather Market

Asia Pacific is the largest manufacturer of leather and synthetic leather. The leather industry has been adversely affected during COVID-19 which has, opened up avenues of opportunities for synthetic leather. According to the Financial Express, industry experts gradually realize that the focus should now be on non-leather footwear exports, as varieties of non-leather footwear accounts for 86% of the total footwear consumption. This was the observation of a cross-section of domestic footwear makers. Recently, there has been a rise in demand for synthetic leather from the makeshift hospitals and healthcare institutes all around the world for beds and furniture to facilitate various patients suffering from COVID-19 and other diseases. These beds and other furniture mostly have medical-grade synthetic leather coverings and are antibacterial or antifungal in nature. In the case of the automotive industry, it has faced a major setback as the sales of the cares have dropped in the first half of the year, which has indirectly affected the demand for synthetic leather as it is mostly used in making the interiors of the cars. In addition, the fluctuation in the raw material prices of synthetic leather has also affected its market.

Market Dynamics

Driver: No Animal Killin Invoved

According to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), more than a billion animals are slaughtered for their skin and hides every year. Most of the genuine leather comes from emerging economies such as China and India, where animal welfare laws are not enforced properly. However, stringent laws are likely to be enforced in Asia Pacific and the rest of the world, which will increase the demand for substitutes of pure leather. Thus, companies are focusing on alternatives to genuine leather, which is generally called synthetic leather. Synthetic leather does not involve killing animals, and manmade ingredients are used for its manufacturing.

Restraints: Harmful Effects of PU and PVC on Humans

Raw materials such as polyurethane (PU) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) used to manufacture synthetic leather are harmful to human and animal health and the surrounding environment. PU is an isocyanate, which possesses potential harm to the lungs, as it causes asthma attacks and lung irritation. It irritates the skin and also causes difficulty in breathing due to lung infection. Workers in PU manufacturing plants are often exposed to polyurethane fumes that result in several health disorders such as vomiting, upset stomach, and dizziness.

PVC contains various toxic carcinogens such as vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), phthalates, and dioxin. Dioxin is highly toxic and harmful, and it is generally released when the plastic that contains chlorine is burned. Thus, the toxic nature of PVC and PU production process act as a major restraint for the synthetic leather market.

Opportunities: Focus on Development of bio-based synthetic leather

The manufacture of bio-based synthetic leather does not have any harmful traits. Manufacturers should focus on commercializing synthetic leather production by natural fibers such as flax or fibers of cotton mixed with palm, soybean, corn, and other plants. A new product in the synthetic leather market, called “Pinatex,” is being made from pineapple leaves. The fiber present in these leaves has the strength and flexibility needed for the manufacturing process. Pineapple leaves are considered a waste product, and thus, they are used to upscale them into something of value without using many resources. Shoes, handbags, and other accessories made of pineapple fibers have already hit the marketplace. Considering the growing government and environmental regulations regarding the usage of harmful toxic chemicals in the European Union and North America, bio-based synthetic leather can prove a major opportunity for synthetic leather manufacturers.

PU-based leather is the largest type for synthetic leather market in 2019

PU-based leather is generally made using PU and different fabrics. It is made by coating a fabric such as polyester or cotton with a flexible polymer. It is further treated by various processes to look like animal hide-based leather. PU-based synthetic leather is made by using soft polymers, hence does not require additional plasticizers. It offers various advantages such as waterproof, lightweight, and softness. In some cases, PU-based leather may tear easily, but does not fade or crack in sunlight. It is widely preferred in the automotive and clothing industries. PU-based leather is considered more environment-friendly than vinyl-based leather, as it does not create dioxins. PU-based leather is more expensive than PVC-based leather due to its extensive manufacturing process.

Footwear is estimated to be the largest end-use industry in synthetic leather market between 2020 and 2025.

Synthetic leather is widely used in the footwear industry due to its excellent properties and high durability. It is used in shoe linings, shoe uppers, and insoles to make different types of footwear such as sports shoes, shoes & boots, and sandals & slippers. The increasing demand for footwear in developed and emerging countries is expected to drive the demand for synthetic leather. Synthetic leather is widely used to manufacture sports shoes for various games around the world due to its cost-effectiveness. Sports shoes made from synthetic leather look similar to those of pure leather and are offer various other properties such as resistance to water, heat, and rigid climatic conditions. It is used to make formal men’s and women’s footwear for official purposes, boots for women and men in the fashion industry, and for those living in the cold regions around the world. Boots made out of real leather tear when exposed to snow and water, but synthetic leather offers excellent resistance to water and snow.

APAC is expected to be the largest synthetic leather market during the forecast period, in terms of value and volume.

The APAC comprises major emerging nations such as China and India. Hence, the scope for the development of most industries is high in this region. The synthetic leather industry is growing significantly and offers opportunities for various manufacturers. The APAC region constitutes approximately 61.0% of the world’s population, and the manufacturing and processing sectors are growing rapidly in the region. The APAC is the largest synthetic leather market with China being the major market which is expected to grow significantly. The rising disposable incomes and rising standards of living in emerging economies in the APAC are the major drivers for this market.

The increasing population in the region accompanied with development of new technologies and products are projected to make this region an ideal destination for the growth of the synthetic leather industry. However, establishing new plants, implementing new technologies, and creating a value supply chain between raw material providers and manufacturing industries in the emerging regions of the APAC are expected to be a challenge for industry players as there is low urbanization and industrialization. Booming footwear and automotive sectors and advances in process manufacturing are some of the key drivers for the market in the APAC. Countries such as India, Indonesia, and China are expected to witness high growth in the synthetic leather market due to the increasing demand from the automotive industry.

Synthetic Leather (Artificial Leather) Market  by Region

Europe is estimated to be the second largest synthetic leathet market during the forecast period.

Europe is the second-largest synthetic leather market in the world. Key countries in the region include Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Russia, Poland, and Spain. As the market in Europe is mature, it is projected to grow at a lower CAGR during the next five years. Europe has always been a major synthetic leather market due to presence of various footwear, clothing, and bags brands in the region. This market is more mature than other regions due to the early introduction of synthetic leather in various industries. Key countries such as Germany and Italy have shown promising demand for synthetic leather which is expected to continue in the near future.
