The global tanning industry is characterized by small and medium – sized family businesses, mainly concentrating in South Korea, Taiwan, China and Indonesia. However, many enterprises are now facing the lack of materials and have to import large amounts of leather materials.

In the past years, the growth rate of global leather consumption is contributed mainly by cow leather, but the increase was not significant, while consuming sheep and goat leather has dropped 2%/year over time. In contrast with the decline in consumption in North America and Europe, the demand for rawhide in developing countries tends to rise sharply. In the Far East, which is the largest exporter of cowhide, improvements of income and tanning capacity have boosted the demand for footwear products. Meanwhile, Latin America is expected to become the biggest importer of cow and buffalo hides in the coming time.

The global footwear production reached 23 billion pairs in 2015, decreasing 5.3% compared to 2014. Contributing the most in this output is China, India and Vietnam, which are three footwear factories of the world with the total production output occupying 70% of the global quantity.

Keeping take advantage from changes of China such as: Yuan devaluation of China, labour cost increase. Besides, situation that many investors shift to invest and expand manufacture in Vietnam (make use of low-cost labour force), as well as reduce investment risk in China. Simultaneously, participation of foreign investment enterprises, footwear export turn-over in 2017 achieved 14.652 billion USD, increased 12.7% compared to the same period of 2016, the reason was demand recover from 2 primary import markets which are EU and US. Meanwhile, in China, since production cost intends to rise, footwear FDI enterprises trend to shift in investment from China to Vietnam. Leather shoes industry is predicted to continuously grow well from 8-15% in the period of 2018 and 2020 and able to reach 19.1 billion USD.
