Dear Member,

About the Chinese Market: China is an important market for leather and leather products. China’s import of leather & leather products increased from US$ 5585.70 million in 2010 to US $ 8530.41 million in 2014, growing at a CAGR of 8.84 %. China with its large Footwear and Leather Products Industry is also a big market for Leather, Components, Chemicals etc.

The 20th China (Wenzhou) Int’l Leather Fair took place successfully from August 27th to 29th at Wenzhou Int’l Convention & Exhibition Center.

Post Show Report of September 2015 Edition –
“The year 2015 was a historical timing for Wenzhou Int’l Leather Fair because it’s the 20 years’ anniversary. It’s really a hard time for Shoe & Leather industry as a result of bad economy. But the scale of Wenzhou Int’l Leather Fair still increased not only in the exhibition area but also in visitor numbers. Compared with last year, the overseas visitors increased 13% which shows the great international impact that Wenzhou Int’l Leather Fair has. This session, 627 exhibitors from Asia, Europe, and South America brought their latest products to show at the fair, which attracted 16,573 buyers from more than 55 countries and regions such as China, India, Pakistan, Iran, Indonesia, HK, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Sri Lanka, Italy.”
