The rapid growth of autonomous vehicles will further contribute to the expansion of the automotive interior leather market. Several factors drive the market, such as advanced technology, a greater level of comfort, greater investments in R&D projects, and an increasing demand for autonomous and electric cars throughout the region.

A high-end brand car typically uses leather seat covers, dashboards, armrests, and much more throughout its interior, indicating its value and quality. In addition to being comfortable and durable, the material also possesses an adverse effect on the environment. With increased consumer spending power, along with the continued growth of the automobile manufacturing industry, it is anticipated that interior leathers will be in high demand on the market in the coming years.

According to Trading Economics, the total number of vehicles sold in the United States increased to 13.50 million in September 2022 from 13.20 million in August 2022. Although the pandemic crippled car sales in the U.S., the demand for aftermarket products ensured regular sales of the interior leather. As green technology is integrated into the automotive industry, players will have more opportunities to grow and expand their businesses in the interior leather market.
