Synthetic leather, also known as faux leather, is a man-made material that is intended to resemble real leather in appearance and feel. It is composed of a combination of plastics and fabrics, such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polyurethane (PU). From automotive upholstery to fashion accessories, synthetic leather has a wide range of applications. It’s also commonly used to make furniture, bags, shoes, and other leather goods.
The synthetic leather market size is estimated to be USD 63.3 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 78.5 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period. Factors such as growing demand from footwear industry, no animal killing involved, advantages over pure leather, and increasing demand for luxury cars and electric vehicles will drive the synthetic leather market. The major restraint for the market will be harmful effects of PU and PVC on humans and substitute for synthetic leather in the automotive industry. However, focus on development of bio-based synthetic leather will act as an opportunity for the market.
