Report scope & Overview:
Synthetic Leather Market is estimated to grow from USD 34 billion in 2022 to USD 58 billion by 2028. It occupies a CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period 2022-2028. A major aspect driving market expansion has been the expanding product application scope in footwear. Furthermore, the increased relevance and knowledge of animal welfare, as well as strict legislation prohibiting the use of real leather, are driving demand for synthetic leather. Synthetic leather has many advantages, including a high gloss finish, strength, durability, and UV resistance, as well as ease of maintenance. Furthermore, synthetic leather products are less expensive, which continues to attract customers, particularly from the medium and upper income levels.
Even when exposed to snow and water, synthetic leather products do not deteriorate. This demonstrates how resistant leathers are to them. Synthetic leather has a cloth foundation that is coated with synthetic resin and is used in a variety of applications such as fabrics, apparel, and footwear. COVID has resulted in a decrease in trade and e-commerce, which has had a detrimental impact on the industry in recent years.
End-user industries making footwear, apparel garments, items for furnishing, for automotive applications, manufacturing bags, purses, clutches, wallets, and several other fashionable products are driving the synthetic leather market. The synthetic leather market is growing due to increased demand for non-animal-killing footwear, which has advantages over pure leather, as well as increased demand for luxury cars and electric vehicles.
Raw materials including Polyvinyl Chloride and Polyurethane used for the manufacturing of synthetic leather as per the synthetic market trend which is harmful both for animals, humans, and the environment. The isocyanate PU, which is used in the production of synthetic leather, is extremely toxic to the lungs, causing asthma and even lung inflammation. These compounds induce skin irritation as well as breathing difficulties. Other health problems associated with PU include nausea, dizziness, vomiting and stomach distress. PVC is also harmful to one's health. Vinyl chloride monomer, phthalates, and dioxin are all hazardous components. Dioxin, for example, is a very poisonous chemical that is generated when chlorine-containing plastic is burned. As a result, the production of such dangerous chemicals works as a restraint, lowering the value and size of the synthetic leather market.
In the approaching years, the demand for synthetic leather over other industries will enhance the potential for rivals. By replacing conventional leather with bio-based leather made from natural fibres such as flax and cotton, the synthetic leather industry's opportunities are increased. These synthetic fibres' flexibility and strength present potential to grow the synthetic leather business.
It has been noted that PU-based products are prone to tearing, posing a challenge for the leather sector. PU-based products are far more expensive than other synthetic leathers, which poses a significant environmental challenge. The lack of urbanisation and industry in APAC presents challenges in the synthetic market.
Impact of COVID-19 Analysis
Pandemics have had a significant impact on the synthetic leather business. The epidemic has narrowed the window of opportunity for growth and development. Aside from the drawbacks of COVID, it has been noted that COVID has aided in market expansion as synthetic leathers are utilised for temporary medical, clinics, and healthcare institutes throughout the world have aided the furnishings, to support COVID patients. COVID has hindered the automotive sector, with car and other motor sales being reduced or eliminated. This has had an impact on the leather business, as synthetic leather is mostly used to furnish automobile interiors. Economic conditions in the industry deteriorated, and the production unit was severely impacted. Due to the government shutdown and lockdown, the business is nearly shuttered. The government imposed rigorous guidelines for wearing masks and using hand sanitizers. When such regulations were broken, they were penalised.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.
The 5 steps process:
Step 1: Secondary Research:
Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.
Step 2: Primary Research
When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data. This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.
We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.
Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.
This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.
Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.
Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.
Step 3: Data Bank Validation
Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.
Step 4: QA/QC Process
After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.
Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:
This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
