Leather goods refer to products that are prepared from material from tanning hides and skin of animals, majorly from cattle. Products such as luggage, footwear, and accessories are some of the prominent products of the leather goods market and these products are sold with the help of offline and online retail stores.

Factors such as increasing disposable income, emerging fashion trends, enhanced living standards, and rising domestic & international tourism has contributed to the growth of this market. Moreover, the growth of the global leather goods market would witness bright prospects due to the aspects like growing demand for convenient, fancy, and fashionable leather apparel, accessories, and footwear, combined with the increasing brand awareness. In modern times, one of the main symbols of style statement and status is the appealing & luxurious leather products. Additionally, the contemporary designs created by renowned global brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, Giorgio Armani, and Prada are currently witnessing massive demand, which would eventually augment the demand for different types of leather goods including footwear, apparel, and accessories.

The booming fashion industry has significantly augmented the demand for leather handbags and wallets among the consumers, hence boosting the accessories market around the world. Consumers highly prefer aesthetic aspects, and demand high-quality range goods in order to make a fashion statement. Moreover, the overall leather market would continue to evolve in various emerging and newly industrialized economies, fulfilling the ever-increasing demand in the industrialized world and requirements of the rising middle classes in their own markets. In order to achieve this, the market should provide quality, prevent commoditization, be more creative and manage the different kinds of environmental concerns in a positive manner.

COVID-19 Impact

The outbreak of COVID-19 outbreak resulted in disturbances in the retail sales of leather goods products throughout the year 2020, due to limitations in spending power, closure stores/outlets of exclusive apparel, and prevalent lockdown across the world. The COVID-19 outbreak has adversely impacted the global leather sector which includes apparel, footwear, and accessories segments. Retailers suffered severe losses during the first two quarters of 2020. As per the report by World Footwear, the sales of footwear were decreased by around 32% in the U.S. at the end of the first two quarters of 2020.

Moreover, the sales of leather shoes would be reduced by the decreased demand for footwear. The majority of the makers in the market have for many years dependent on China for final goods and raw materials utilized in the manufacturing of several leather goods. However, the pandemic disturbed the supply chain, thereby bringing massive losses regarding product shipment.

Type Outlook

Based on Type, the market is segmented into Genuine Leather, Synthetic Leather and Vegan Leather. In 2020, the genuine leather segment procured the maximum revenue share of the global leather goods market. Synthetic leather goods are less costly as compared to genuine leather products and are similarly appealing regarding design, which would boost their demand among consumers. Synthetic leather is majorly extracted from artificial sources, like Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and Polyurethane (PU).

Product Outlook

Based on Product, the market is segmented into Footwear, Automotive Accessories, Home Décor & Furnishing, Small Leather Goods & Accessories, Apparel, Handbags, and Others. The home décor & furnishing segment would be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is driven by the rising expenses on home furnishing and renovation. International Monetary Fund revealed that the global housing market has been rising gradually in the last few years. Another crucial element is the housing index, which shows the varying prices of residential properties.

Regional Outlook

Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa. In 2020, North America emerged as the leading region of the global leather goods market by acquiring the highest revenue share of the market. The growth of the regional market would be boosted by the increasing prominence of the product along with the growing online sales in this region.
