The twelve-page survey report includes information on what are the most important sales regions and target markets for tanners, what investments they intend to make over the next 6-12 months and how confident they are feeling about the current business climate. The results also reveal their concerns and how they feel about the current raw materials pricing and availability situation.

The comprehensive results includes data from a broad range of hides and small skins tanners covering a range of end-use applications located all over the world. It is the most authoritative outlook of the current status of the industry as we head into the second quarter of the year and lead up to the APLF in Hong Kong.

The report is available to all new and existing ILM Premium subscription members as well as to those tanners who kindly participated in the survey. The results are quite revealing and provide a snapshot of the levels of confidence felt by tanners in the market today.
