Everyone has heard that well known expression, “if it sounds too good to be true then it must be too good to be true.” It has always been seen as wise advise. However, imagine if raw materials prices (hides and skins) were currently so low that any savvy buyer could see the huge financial benefits when markets open again, and supply chains need restocking. The coronavirus lockdown might feel real today, but it will not last forever.

At the online raw materials and analysis platform, theSauerReport.com, industry experts and analysts have been reporting sharp declines in hides and skins prices globally caused by the pandemic and subsequent shutdown of supply chains and retail stores.

However, as raw materials, despite the record low prices, remain a major element of finished leather cost, knowing how the market is reacting can give your business a competitive edge on your competitors and could save a business serious amounts of money during these difficult moments. By subscribing to theSauerReport your business can receive daily market updates with prices, analysis and market trends reported by industry experts.
