Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

Over the past five years, the industry has performed poorly due to substantial declines in domestic demand. Industry performance is influenced by demand for leather tanning, fur dressing and leather product manufacturing and real household discretionary income levels. Companies that tan animal hides and skins are affected by demand from downstream clothing and footwear manufacturers that require leather inputs. The trade-weighted index also shapes the performance of industry operators, as the industry participates in extremely high levels of international trade.
