Leather exports thrive once again on Chinese demand

12
Jun '10
Exports of finished and crushed leather during July to April, has gone up by around 16 percent. This is because the domestic producers have discovered a new location to export their goods, China.

Statistics of the Export Promotion Bureau reveal that, exporters during the period under consideration, made around $175 million as against $151.22 million during the corresponding period, in the previous year. Over the last 16 months, a considerable decline was noted in leather exports, which was mainly due to decreasing demand coupled with global economic crisis.

Nonetheless, a spin was noticed since February, when exports made a forward move. Data's from the state-owned promotional agency show that, leather worth $177.32 million was exported during FY2008-09, as against $284 million in FY2007-08.

At present, the leather industry as a whole, accounts for over Tk 35 billion per year, sector experts said that, over the last few months, there has been an enormous rise in the demand for crushed and finished leather from the side of China and this has facilitated the exporters to sell of their stocks.

Rawhide, wet blue, crushed and finished leather are the four main kinds of leather that domestic tanners produce. Whereas, crushed and finished leather are the two main kinds that are exported by the country. But recently, a fall has been noticed both in their demand and sale in the markets worldwide.

The overall leather exports by the country are mainly segregated as 80 percent of crushed leather and 20 percent of finished. USA, Italy, Germany, Japan, Korea and China are the main export hubs where country's leather products are exported.
