According to the statistics of the National Bureau of Statistics and the General Administration of Customs, the overall economic operation of the Chinese tanning industry from January to April 2014 was relatively stable.

Maintain steady development trend
The sales revenue of the tanning industry increased rapidly and the profitability continued to increase.

Affected by the decline in China's light leather output, imports of raw hides and semi-finished leathers have declined slightly but are still within normal fluctuations. From January to April 2014, China imported 730,000 tons of raw and semi-finished leather, which was 1.78 billion US dollars, down 2.1% and 5.5% respectively.
China's leather industry will maintain a stable and good development trend, and the market demand for leather products will grow steadily. Su Chaoying, chairman of the China Leather Association, said that with the economic recovery in developed countries and the continuous deepening of China's reforms, it is expected that the tanning industry will continue to maintain a stable and good development trend in the second half of this year. The value of imports and exports may be affected by the market. There was a slight fluctuation.
