Market Insight

Leather is widely used for the interior components of vehicles such as seats, dashboards, steering wheel, and gear shifter. However, leather has a negative impact on the environment, and even on the human body. The chemicals used for processing leather are harmful for the environment and have an adverse effect on human health. Thus, many automakers are turning away from leather and opting for more sustainable materials. Vegan leather is one of the sustainable options for automotive interiors. Unlike original leather, vegan leather does not use harmful chemicals in its production, making it more sustainable. Moreover, the automotive vegan leather market is characterized by the availability of a wide range of products. Many market players are developing innovative materials to offer superior feel, while keeping the environmental impact to the lowest.

The outbreak of novel coronavirus has had a severe effect on the automotive vegan leather market. The automotive sector witnessed huge demand drop during the COVID-19 pandemic. The spending capacity of the consumers sharply decreased due to economic downturn, and higher unemployment over the pandemic period. Furthermore, the supply side witnessed significant disruptions, as the major manufacturing hubs in countries such as China, India, and Italy were compelled to reduce the production, or even close during the pandemic. Furthermore, a collapse of demand has, in turn, led to automotive companies to break contracts, canceling orders, delaying shipments, and asking for discounts from suppliers. The vegan leather exporters said that the countries such as the US, Germany, and Italy has started sending inquiries and is negotiating for a lower price.

The growing demand for sustainable materials in the automotive sector is majorly driving the growth of the market. Many automakers have pledged to reduce their carbon footprint, and make their businesses more sustainable. As vegan leather does not require harmful chemicals, which are used for processing of original leather, it is more eco-friendly. This, in turn, augments the adoption of vegan leather in automotive sector. Moreover, advantages of vegan leather over original leather are further propelling the market growth. Vegan leather is affordable, easy to clean, and more durable than original leather. However, the high cost of manufacturing of biobased vegan leather is expected to moderately restrain the growth of the vegan leather market. Nevertheless, growing R&D activities to develop innovative materials resembling leather is anticipated to boost the market growth over the forecast period.


In terms of geography, the global automotive vegan leather market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World.
