DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Leather Tanning Machinery Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The global leather tanning machinery market to grow at a CAGR of 3.99% during the period 2016-2020.
Tanning is an integral part of the entire leather production process. It is the conversion of the protein of raw skin or hide into a material that is stable. The process ensures that the hide or converted material does not decompose and is suitable for end-user applications.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global leather tanning machinery market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the average selling price of a tanning machinery or equipment. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
Using vegetable/synthetic tanning will be a key trend for market growth. Wattle bark, myrobalan nuts, and chestnut are some of the environment-friendly tanning agents. The tannin contained in this exhibit highly polymerized and coiled-up structure. The use of natural materials to replace the hazardous chromium illustrates a suitable and eco-friendly alternative to chrome tanning. Although the use of vegetable tanning has been in practice for a long time, it has gained wide popularity recently in the wake of declining pollution from leather tanning.
According to the report, development of slaughter-free leather will be a key driver for market growth. The success of the lab-grown leather can lead to a revolution wherein one of the most commonly used materials can be synthesized without harming the ecosystem. This technology will boost the demand for leather products since leather processing would no longer require the killing of animals.
Further, the report states that a challenge is that the quality of skins and hides cannot be properly assessed till the entire hair or wool has been removed, and the tanning process is complete. The extent of the damage to the outside surface of the skin or grain determines the quality of the hide, which is extremely difficult to assess. This damage could be attributed to animal husbandry practices, skin parasites, or damage at the time of slaughter.
