Global leather goods market: Technological advances in the manufacturing process

Key players in the industry are coming up with several technologies to enhance the properties of leather goods. In addition to this, since transforming leather into finished goods involves many processes, manufacturers are trying to optimize the quality and yield at low costs while reducing environmental pollution. For instance, Florida-based Graphix on Finishes has launched 2D and 3D printing technology for enhancing leather. This leather is waterproof, fade-resistant, and highly durable. Similarly, LANXESS, a specialty chemicals company has developed LEVOTAN W, a functionalized silicone-containing microemulsion to produce waterproof leathers. Such developments are expected to boost the global leather goods market during the forecast period.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for retail goods and services research, “Growing disposable incomes have led to an increase in demand for aesthetically appealing and durable leather goods. Innovations in design and the use of exotic leather are enabling manufacturers to cater to the demands of high-end and premium customers.”
