Leatherbiz Market Intelligence - Surprisingly high levels of optimism at ACLE

Our latest Leatherbiz Market Intelligence newsletter went live on September 5. In it, we are delighted to be able to offer readers a breakdown of the mood and the market dynamic that were on show at the All China Leather Exhibition in Shanghai last week.

In broad terms, optimism was in surprisingly generous supply among producers of wet blue and finished leather for furniture, while automotive leather producers were in good spirits too.

This made the event more successful than sellers of the right kinds of raw material dared hope.

However, there was no such enthusiasm among footwear-facing tanners or among suppliers of the male hides they prefer to use.

Please visit the ‘Intelligence’ section of the website to read the report in full.
