Increasing Awareness about Animal Cruelty and Vegan Leather is One of the Major Factors Driving the Industry Growth

Increasing awareness about animal cruelty and vegan leather is one of the major factors driving the growth of the global synthetic leather market. For instance, according to the Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021, over $40 billion global fur industry has been under tremendous scrutiny, in the past few years, for its inhuman practices. Most of the fur and leather products are manufactured via factory breeding, the animals are treated in small, dirty cages and later cruelly slaughtered. Then from the skin of an animal, leather and fur are manufactured. Some civic groups and animal protection groups like People for the Ethical Treatments of Animals (PETA) strongly encourage the people for alternative products and animal-friendly production processes. Day by day the vegan population in the world is increasing; this population is strongly restricting the use of animal products. So, the increasing awareness about animal cruelty and vegan leather are boosting the growth of global synthetic leather market.

In addition, the ban of fur and leather by top brands is also promoting the growth of the synthetic leather market. For instance; Macy’s lnc. and Bloomingdales in October 2019, announced that they would end the sale of animal fur products in 2020. Macy's lnc. will close its Fur Vault and Maximilian stores by 2021 as a result of this decision. Also Prada Group in 2020, they will no longer feature fur in their collections. Also includes brands, Miu Miu. Phillip Lim in 2019 also banned fur in their collections. Coach brand in 2019, which previously used real mink, fox, coyote, and rabbit fur in its designs announced the fur-free products. Also brands like Farfetch Burberry, Victoria Beckham, Chanel, dian von Furstenberg, Versace, Maison Margiela, Furla Group, Michael kors, Gucci, yoox-Net-a-Porter Group and Armani group banned the animal leather and fur in their collections.

Furthermore, its growing applications in furnishing, rising demand for alternative genuine leather, booming footwear sector, the rapid development of construction and automotive industries are some other factors supplementing the growth of the synthetic leather market. However, hazardous or harmful effects of synthetic leather which are made from PU and PVC on human and animal health as well as the environment may hinder the market growth. In spite of that, the development of bio-based synthetic leather may offer an opportunity for further growth of the market.
