ILM is the only organisation of its kind to survey the global tanning sector on a regular basis, providing an accurate picture of the current state of the global market and helping tanners develop their future business strategies.

The questionnaire is aimed exclusively at tanners, whether they cover the whole process or just one part, such as beamhouse, crusting or finishing in any market segment, and has been designed to take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

By taking a short amount of time to let us know how things are going for you, and your perspectives on the industry at large, you can help us provide a picture of the industry that will aid in guiding your future business decisions.

Take part in the 2023 Tanner Business Confidence Survey and you’ll get a week of free access to the ILM website including all premium gated content. You’ll be able to access the full results of the survey as well as all of the exclusive content ILM publishes that week, normally available only to subscribers.

All responses have to be submitted by Friday, July 7, 2023. Highlights of the results will be published in the September/October 2023 edition of ILM with the full results published on the website.

Tanners can email Clare Worton at for access to the survey and secure a free week of unrestricted access to ILM.

Each of the answers given will be kept strictly confidential and will not be shared with anyone else or published as an individual response. The answers will be published as part of a global questionnaire in ILM print and digital editions. Your data is secure and ILM promises that it will not be passed on to any third party.
