The global synthetic leather market is segmented based on type, into PU-based, PVC-based, and bio-based. In 2015, PU-based synthetic leather captured the maximum share of the overall market; it is also expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. PU leather is considered more environment friendly as compared to vinyl based leather, as it does not create dioxins. PU-based based leather is more expensive than PVC-based leather, due to the extensive manufacturing process that is required. Companies are also manufacturing microfiber PU leather, which is a high quality leather, and has properties that are better than pure leather.
