Introduction: Leather Tanning Chemicals Market
Conversion of raw skins and hides into leather is called the leather tanning process, and the chemicals that are used for the leather tanning process are known as leather tanning chemicals. These chemicals have the ability to absorb raw impurities and keep leather durable for a long time. Leather tanning chemicals help stabilize the structure of leather for it to retain its natural properties. Common leather tanning chemicals include syntans, alum, vegetable tannins (extracted from bark), formaldehyde, and heavy oils. The leather tanning chemical process is essential during the preparing of leather to soften its texture. With the increasing demand for innovative, efficient, and advanced processes for leather tanning, the demand for leather tanning chemicals is expected to gain traction during the assessment period.
