Extreme caution continues
The 94th edition of Lineapelle has just ended, with its numbers reflecting the market trend.
Exhibitors grew by 5%, showing a renewed optimism, while the turnout of visitors was in line with that of February 2017, indicating a market that is still cautious before a recovery considered uncertain. An economic situation, therefore, characterised by customers who choose their suppliers extremely carefully:
“Many visitors turned up at stands that exhibited advanced and innovative samples, stylistically in line with the 2019 summer trends. Yet also aggressive in their variety and determined to offer visitors tangible inspirations and the opportunity to develop big personality accessories”, reported the fair organisers.
Leather goods continued to remain very active, from luxury to the lower segments, and push towards a frenetic differentiation of collections, footwear confirms its uncertainties and the dominance of the sneaker.
After a few seasons of decline, leather clothing showed positive signs. The now usual synergy with Simac Tanning Tech, the tanning, footwear and leather goods technologies fair, once again proved to be very important, attracting great interest with the proposal ideas, solutions and innovative technologies.
This confirms the desire for quality and efficiency widely expressed by the industry.
This issue of Arsutoria Tannery also focuses on the topic of laboratories, testing and everything that can guarantee and certify the quality of a production and a company.
