New York, October 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – announces the publication of the report “Organic Leather Market by Source, End Use and Region – Global Forecast to 2026” –

Pineapple is estimated to be the largest source of the bio-based leather market in 2020
Pineapple-based leather is estimated to dominate the global bio-based leather market, in terms of value, in 2020. Pineapple is a perennial fruit and extensively cultivated around the world.

It generates a lot of waste, including leaves, stems, pulps and skin. Pinatex is made from the waste from the pineapple harvesting process.

The textile has similar qualities to leather, but it is slightly rougher, giving it a distressed vintage look that works well for watches, boots and other accessories. Pinatex is currently preferred by various brands such as Hugo Boss, Altiir, Bourgeois Boheme, Nike and Drew Veloric.

Apparel and accessories was the second largest end-use industry for the bio-based leather market in 2020
The size of the market for bio-based leather for the apparel and accessories industry accounted for the second largest share of the world’s bio-based leather, in terms of value, in 2020. Bio-based leather for the clothing and accessories industry has always been driven by the economies of North America, Europe and APAC.

Most countries should continue to use traditional leather clothing and accessories rather than bio-based leather clothing and accessories. Consumption of clothing and accessories is expected to increase worldwide and, subsequently, consumption of bio-based leather is expected to increase to meet strict environmental standards, especially in North America.

This dominance is mainly due to the increasing pollution of the environment by tanneries which use harmful chemicals for the leather tanning process. Additionally, traditional leathers also encourage animal cruelty and promote poaching of animals for the skin.

Bio-based leather is a good option for reducing the carbon footprint as well as animal cruelty. Bio-based leather is a sustainable option for the application of clothing and accessories. Leathers of leftover fruits, cacti, mushrooms and pineapples are all the rage in the current scenario. Fashion brands such as Jill Milan, Matt & Nat, Stella McCartney, Jord and Versace use different plant sources to make clutch bags, bags, watch straps, wallets, handbags, belts, jackets and various other outfits.

North America is estimated to be the largest biobased leather market in 2020, in terms of value.

North America was the largest market for biobased leather in 2020. North America is a highly developed region; therefore, the use of advanced bio-based leather is also high.

The use of premium quality biobased leather in the fashion and footwear industry is boosting the market for biobased leather in the region. Mushroom-based leather is expected to grow at the highest CAGR, in terms of value, during the forecast period in this region.

Companies such as MycoWorks and Ecovative Design manufacture bio-based leather from fungus mycelium in this region. The footwear end use industry is estimated to have the largest market in this region due to changing trends among millennials and growing public awareness about environmental pollution caused by leather industry.

Leading brands like Stella McCartney, Will’s Vegan Shoes, Lulus and Brave GentleMan are the leading shoe brands using organic leather in this region. These shoes are mainly made from cork, mushrooms and mixtures of plant sources as well as polymer resins.
