The Japan’s leather market is dominated by China, which supplies many low-end products. However, European countries, such as Italy, France or Germany retain an important share of the market, specialising in high-end leather goods and providing products that are highly regarded by Japanese customers. The market is also regulated by voluntary standards and specific labelling measures that ensure high-quality products for end users.
