The plant-based leather market is projected to reach USD 97 million by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2022 to 2027. Soaring concerns around animal welfare and the increased carbon footprint generated by animal leather industries leading to global warming have altered customer behavior. There is presently a surging demand for ethical, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free products, which has led industry stakeholders to substitute animal leather with a plant-based alternative, causing the expansion of the plant-based leather market.

The fashion sector accounted for the largest market share in 2021. International brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney, and Gucci are incorporating plant-based leather in their collections and are anticipated to shift from conventional leather to plant-based leather gradually.

The well-established leather industries in India and Bangladesh and abundant raw materials are propelling the growth of the plant-based leather market in Asia Pacific.
