Leather used in upholstering automobile interiors is called automotive interior leather. Use of leather enhances the aesthetic appeal of the interior of the vehicle and also gives it a premium look and feel. Thus, leather is being widely used in automotive interiors across the globe, especially in midrange and premium passenger vehicles.
Automotive Interior Leather MarketDynamics
Increasing per capita disposable income and rapid growth of the automotive industry, especially in developing countries such as India and China is increasing consumer spending on automobiles. Along with external appearance and specifications of vehicles, aesthetic appeal of car interiors plays a crucial role in consumer buying decision. Apart from providing a premium look and feel, leather automotive upholstery also provides certain functional advantages over conventional materials used in car interiors. These include longevity, easy cleaning, and anti-allergic properties of high-grain leather. These factors are influencing car manufacturers and OEMs to provide leather upholstery in their mid-range and premium car offerings, in turn driving growth of the automotive interior market. Rising consumer preference for retrofitting of vehicles with leather upholstery is further supporting growth of the market through the aftermarket channel.
High purchase and maintenance costs associated with automotive leather interior, poor performance of leather in extreme weather conditions, rising availability of faux leather, among other factors, inhibits growth of the market to a certain extent.
