Footwear is estimated to be the largest end-use industry in synthetic leather market between 2020 and 2025.
Synthetic leather is widely used in the footwear industry due to its excellent properties and high durability.It is used in shoe linings, shoe uppers, and insoles to make different types of footwear such as sports shoes, shoes & boots, and sandals & slippers.

The increasing demand for footwear in developed and emerging countries is expected to drive the demand for synthetic leather.Synthetic leather is widely used to manufacture sports shoes for various games around the world due to its cost-effectiveness.

The APAC is the largest synthetic leather market with China being the major market which is expected to grow significantly. The rising disposable incomes and rising standards of living in emerging economies in the APAC are the major drivers for this market.
