Growth Factors

 The demand is anticipated to be majorly driven by the increasing usage of high-quality leather products in several industrial applications such as footwear, automotive, apparel.

Evolving consumer lifestyle coupled with rising disposable income is expected to drive the demand for leather chemicals in a broad range of applications such as jacket, wallet, upholstery, shoes, and belt among others. The demand from the application is expected to fluctuate depending on changes in seasonality. Since, leather is one of the maximum used materials for making a variety of goods such as footwear, clothing, automotive seats, purses, jackets, bags, pouches, smartphone covers, dog collars, and belts. The demand for biocides is expected to be driven by the growth in the leather industry, as biocides are majorly used as bactericides and fungicides to avoid the formation of microbes, fungi, and bacteria during several important processing steps.

Report Highlights

By Product Analysis

In terms of volume, the fungicides product type segment held the market and accounted for the largest share of 89.2% in 2020. This high share is attributable to good performance even at fewer dosages and is to be useful in controlling bacteria and fungi in tanneries. 

Several research studies have been conducted for developing plant-based fungicides as a replacement for hazardous chemical biocides for application in the leather industry. Biocides such as bactericides are generally used in tanning processes to protect the substrate against bacterial growth and attack. Bactericides are often used in the tannery for the preservation of soaking rather than curing the hides. 

By Process Analysis

The tanning and dyeing process segment held the market and accounted for the highest volumetric share of 50.7% in 2020. This high share is attributable to the major use of the bactericides in the tanning process in order to protect the substrate against bacterial growth and attack. 

Biocides applied in tanning applications are non-oxidizing biocides, such as isothiazoles, quaternary ammonium compounds, and halogenated organic compounds, in an amount of about 0.1 to 0.5% by mass of rawhide.

Biocides are often found in wastewater, left out after the tanning process, which is usually flushed down by leather manufacturers to the nearby water bodies leading to an increase in toxicity levels.

The beamhouse operations have the second-largest share in the biocide industry involved in the preparation of hides for tanning processes. It involves cleaning of hides by removal of hairs and animal flesh, without disturbing the required moisture content of hides.

By Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific dominated the biocides for leather market and held for the largest revenue share of 39.4% in 2020. The high share is attributable to the abundant availability of raw materials and the high concentration of leather manufacturers present in the region. 

The market growth in the Central & South America region is primarily driven by the rapidly flourishing leather industry along with increased leather exports. The presence of major leather producing countries such as Brazil and Argentina among others is anticipated to positively impact leather production in the region, which, in turn, is anticipated to drive biocide production in the region over the forecast period. 

The market in the European region is anticipated to be driven by the increased demand for leather chemicals and growing demand for leather from end-use industries such as footwear, automotive upholstery, and textiles. Hence a significant demand for biocides is observed from these industries.
