Dublin, Nov. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Synthetic Leather Market Report 2021 - 2028" has been added to's offering.

The global synthetic leather market size is expected to reach $50.34 billion by 2028

The adoption of synthetic leather is expected to increase during the forecast period owing to wide applications in industries such as automotive, apparel, and furnishing.

Increasing urbanization and growing demand from the automotive sector have further supported the market growth. However, the COVID-19 outbreak has restricted the growth of the market due to operational challenges, disruption of the supply chain, reduced demand, and workforce impairment.

Polyurethane material offers the same texture as real leather while being lighter, cheaper, and durable. The rising ethical concerns regarding animal cruelty, growing environmental awareness, and the introduction of stringent regulations support the growth of this segment.

The automotive segment is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. The use of synthetic material in automobiles offers durability, strength, comfort, and elasticity.
