Leather Tanning Chemicals Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment; 2018 - 2028

Leather Tanning Chemicals: Introduction

Leather is considered as a traditional material used for the manufacturing of many goods, including footwear, clothing, furniture, and automobile seats. Leather chemical tanning is a process used to stabilize its structure, so that the skin can retain its natural properties. Moreover, during the tanning process, skin structure is maintained in its open form by changing some of the collagen with complex ions of chromium. After tanning, the leather is able to withstand hundred degree Celsius hot boiling water, and become more flexible than the untreated dead skin. The most common leather tanning chemicals include vegetable tannins (extracted from tree bark), syntans, alum, glutaraldehyde, formaldehyde, and heavy oils. Chrome tanning by leather tanning chemicals is the most adopted tanning process by manufacturers; this process is most efficient and less toxic than hexavalent chromium. Though the vegetable tanning process is a traditional process, it is a process without using harmful chemicals. Vegetable tannic acids are naturally found in some plants, by using the branches, leaves, barks, or even some fruits in some specific techniques.

In order to make leather soft and pliable for use, the leather tanning chemical process is necessary during the preparing of leather. With the growing demand for technologically advanced and efficient processes for leather tanning, the demand for the leather tanning chemicals has escalated

Leather Tanning Chemicals Market: Dynamics

The method of leather tanning has revolutionized the modern leather industry since the past few years. The growing consumption of leather in the end-use sector includes furniture, footwear, garments, and automotive interiors, which is estimated to create high demand for leather tanning chemicals over the forecast period. The increasing demand for luxurious leather products and the production of various colored leathers have substantially changed the scenario of the leather tanning chemicals market. There is high demand for leather tanning chemicals in developing economies, as manufacturers have invested immensely in these countries, owing to low labor costs.

Some of the top growing countries of leather such as the Republic of Korea, Taiwan, China, Indonesia, and Vietnam have been hindered by the deficiency of raw material supply, and involved in the considerable import of skin and hides. This is further expected to hamper the growth of the leather tanning chemicals market over the forecast period.
