Market contrast between ACLE 2014 & 2015

Published:  07 September, 2015

APLF Director, Michael Duck told a press conference at the All China Leather Exhibition in Shanghai last week that the 18th edition of the fair took place at "radically different market conditions compared with the 2014 event".  

The ACLE is the leading leather industry fair in China but the backdrop to the 2015 edition with a 40% fall in hide prices over the summer and lacklustre global demand for leather was opposed to the same period in 2014 when hide prices reached their peak in September of that year.
