Growing Demand For Leather Goods in Handbag Market

Leather is one of the most traded commodities in the world. There is a continuous demand from the fashion industry driven by footwear, luggage bags, and accessories such as handbags. Europe saw a rise in 3.5% of imports of leather handbags from 2012 to 2016.

Due to the increase in the production of light leather for handbags and its imports from Asian countries such as China, India, and Vietnam. Major importing countries of leather for handbags are the United States and Japan. India became one of those opportunistic markets for imports of leather handbags for major companies from the United States and Europe. This happened because of the high import tariff rates of leather from China in 2018.
