Products made from leather from Indonesia, such as shoes and footwear, are also widely exported to Asian countries such as Vietnam and China. The greatest demand for leather includes tanned leather, footwear, and sports shoes. Sports shoes which are mostly exported to China have increased quite drastically from 2015 amounting to 66,981.6 US dollars and reaching 109,034.2 US dollars in 2016.
Indonesia also exports a lot of leather
Apart from China, Indonesia also exports a lot of leather goods and artificial leather to Australia, Malaysia, Canada, and Hawaii. The Canadian market for leather and leather products opens up opportunities for many exporters of leather and leather products.
Although Canada is both an exporter and importer of leather and leather products, its import value has almost tripled the value of its exports during the 2006-2016 period. Canadian imports of leather and leather products as a whole showed a positive trend over the above period with a total value of more than US $ 806 million in 2016, up from the above US $ 644 million at the start of that period.
Leather handbags were Canada’s highest-scoring category of imports of leather and leather products between 2011 and 2016. Imports of these products to Canada totaled more than US $ 246 million in 2016, the highest during that period.
Composition leather as the largest value import
This product replaces apparel and clothing accessories made of leather or composition leather as the largest value import of leather and leather products in Canada as the import value of the latter has continued to fall in the Canadian market following the 2008-2009 global financial crisis. The import value of branded men’s leather bags has not only continued to increase, its share in total imports of leather and leather products in Canada has also continued to increase.
In terms of Indonesia’s prominent and increasingly important export of leather and leather products throughout the world, there are four export leather products that deserve attention.
Import of leather products into Canada
The four products are leather handbags, whether or not with shoulder straps, bags with leather on the outer surface, clothing and clothing accessories made of leather or composition leather and gloves, mittens and mitts of leather or of composition leather. The first two leather products are also superior products which have an increasingly important meaning for the import of leather products into Canada.
Even so, Indonesia is not yet among the main suppliers for the two leather products to Canada. Therefore, there is room for Indonesia to increase its presence in the Canadian market through these two leather products.
As an export destination country, the share of exports of this product from Indonesia to Canada experienced long fluctuations in most of these periods. Despite this, Canada has remained one of Indonesia’s top three export destinations for this product in recent years.
The Canadian market for leather gloves
On the other hand, the Canadian market for leather gloves, mittens, and mitts made of leather or composition leather provides a clearer picture for Indonesian exporters. Over the past decade, this product has experienced only a slight decline in its share of total imports of leather and leather products which indicates that there is a continued demand for this product in Canada.
Given the stable demand for this product in Canada and Indonesia’s ability to export it globally, Indonesian exporters should be able to perform better in the Canadian market for this product.
Indonesian leather product manufacturers
Bag bone always strives to become one of the Indonesian leather product manufacturer’s companies with an export orientation. So that in the future Indonesia has a leather product brand that is also recognized by the world.
Our products are acceptable for European and Australian markets. Slowly but surely, through endless struggle and effort, finally, our leather products can penetrate the international market.
We are optimistic that in the free trade competition with countries in the world, Indonesian products are quite superior because Indonesia has a richer artistic and cultural touch. It is not an exaggeration if we aspire to make the Bagbone Brand Bag a global Indonesian leather bag product.
