February 2020 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global synthetic leather market size is expected to reach USD 52.96 billion by 2027, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. It is projected to expand at a strong CAGR of 7.8%, in terms of revenue during the forecast years. Increasing scope of application for the product in footwear has been a major factor driving the growth. Growing importance and awareness about animal rights along with stringent laws regarding the usage of real leather is anticipated to further fuel the product demand.

Synthetic leather materials have superior properties, such as high gloss finish, durability, strength, UV resistance, and easy maintenance. Moreover, products made from faux leather are cheaper and thus, continue to attract consumers, especially 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. Polyurethane (PU) was the largest product category in 2017 and is expected to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period.

PVC is anticipated to witness sluggish growth on account of its properties, such as sticky finish and lesser durability. Footwear application segment is expected to observe a considerable growth over the forecast period. Cheaper costs and fluctuating climatic conditions in several regions creates needs for different types of footwear. Rising disposable income levels in emerging regions are also fueling the demand for synthetic leather in the footwear segment. Rising use of athletic shoes in everyday life is further augmenting the product demand.
