Synthetic leather, also called faux, artificial, rexine leather, or leatherette, is a material that has a similar appearance to leather but is not animal-made. It is composed of natural or synthetic fibers that are coated with plastic polymer. Usually, synthetic leather is primarily made from two types of materials – polyurethane (PU) and polyvinylchloride (PVC). Polyurethane leather or PU leather made of thermoplastic polymer is entirely manmade and offers the look and feel of genuine leather. Having a glossier appearance and less thickness than real leather, it is waterproof and easily washable. PU leather is extensively used in the making of furniture and shoes. In contrast, PVC leather is made from vinyl, which is less expensive and a good alternative to genuine leather. When altered with various fillers to change the texture, color, form, and effects, it can be used to manufacture various leather goods. Synthetic leather provides numerous benefits, such as enhanced durability and resistance to water, heat, severe climatic conditions, and UV (ultraviolet) rays.
The market is primarily driven by the growing product demand from the footwear industry. Along with this, the increasing demand for luxury automotive and electric vehicles is facilitating the need for fancy leatherette car seats, which, in turn, is positively influencing the market. Additionally, with the evolving textile technologies, there has been a paradigm shift towards vegan fashion, which is fostering widespread product adoption across the globe. The augmenting demand for spandex clothes and competitive swimsuits is also propelling the product demand. Apart from this, stringent animal welfare laws enforced worldwide are further boosting the demand for synthetic alternatives, thereby creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, rapid urbanization, rising environmental concerns among individuals, the growing awareness regarding sustainable fashion, and increasing investments in extensive research and development (R&D) activities are some of the other factors significantly contributing to the market growth.
