Current Trend and Future Growth of Leather Sector in India
The leather industry in India produces approx. 1055 billion worth of leather in various forms. Out of this, 661 billion (62%) is consumed domestically and the remaining is exported (37%). This share of consumption and export is estimated to change and in 2020 India will account for 1.4 trillion (59.1%) worth of domestic consumption and earn 673 billion (40.9%) worth from exports. Organized retail is expected to grow at a CAGR of 25% to reach USD 200 Billion by 2020.
Demand growth for leather goods is expected from footwear, bags, purses, furniture etc. all driven by the Indian consumption boom. Penetration of export markets is expected to rise in the wake of increased sourcing by global retail majors and luxury brands. Key segments for human resource development in the industry include finished leather, leather footwear and leather goods.
India is the second largest global maker of footwear after China, accounting for 13% of global footwear production of 16 billion pairs. India produces 2065 million pairs of footwear, of which about 115 million pairs are exported. The major production centres in India are Chennai, Tamil Nadu, Mumbai, Kanpur, Kolkata, etc.
The sector currently employs over 3.09 million employees and is slated to employ more than 6.8 million employees by 2022. This implies additional creation of approx. 3.7 million jobs in the nine-year period. The leather footwear segment currently employs 0.78 million people and is expected to employ 1.44 million people by 2020. This will result in an incremental growth of around 0.66 million jobs. All these factors will result in more job opportunities for candidates applying in this sector across India.
