Kombucha leather is a flexible biomaterial created from a kombucha tea SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast). As the microbes feed on the sugar, polyphenols, and other nutrients in the brewed kombucha tea, the SCOBY from tea thickens with each brew. Researchers have developed kombucha leather as a sustainable material to replace leather and lessen its negative environmental impact. Cost effectiveness, biodegradability, and adaptability are just a few of the benefits of kombucha leather over ordinary leather. The popularity of kombucha leather among fashion brands has grown as a result of these benefits. The fashion business is undergoing a metamorphosis, with trends such as eco-friendly, veganism, and sustainable fashion on the increase. Fashion designers and researchers are developing new materials and manufacturing procedures to keep up with the latest trends. Several businesses in the fashion industry are working on developing environmentally friendly and long-lasting materials.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • The spread of COVID-19 hampered kombucha leather production, supply, and demand, which had a detrimental impact on the market. As the COVID-19 pandemic spread over the world, governments in a number of countries imposed harsh curfews, preventing people from going outside, including public areas and businesses.
  • The kombucha market experienced a labor shortage as a result of legislative regulations. Furthermore, government restrictions have restricted demand for kombucha leather. Due to legislative regulations, some businesses selling kombucha leather items have been shut down.
  • Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the worldwide economy and has affecting the majority of people's income. As a result, many customers have reduced their expenditure on luxury and non-essential items such as clothes. As a result, market growth is projected to be hampered in the short term.

Top Impacting Factors

  • The increased consumer awareness of the detrimental impacts of traditional leather on the environment and human health is the primary element that drives the market's expansion. Traditional leather production uses a number of chemicals that are both hazardous to the environment and to the health of workers.
  • Kombucha leather, on the other hand, is made in a more environmentally friendly manner. Furthermore, because of its easy manufacturing method, kombucha leather is less expensive than traditional leather.

Kombucha leather is made with less chemicals and takes less time to produce. As a result, the demand for kombucha leather among end-users has increased. However, when compared to traditional leather, kombucha leather is of poorer quality. Kombucha leather is softer than typical leather and can't withstand a lot of pressure. This is the most significant stumbling block to the kombucha leather market's expansion. Nonetheless, the market is likely to increase due to continued R&D activities by researchers and fashion brands during the forecast period.

Market Trends

New Product Launches to Flourish the Market

Fashion innovation has pushed merchandisers to provide the greatest items possible. The growth in usage of leather materials in clothing has resulted in the creation of environmentally friendly leather products. Many companies now make kombucha leather clothing, shoes, women's fashion accessories, and other items. These items are environmentally friendly and appeal to a wide range of individuals all around the world. Unlike typical leather, which requires chemical tanning, SCOBY leather does not require chemical tanning. The tanning process produces effluent as well as harmful fumes, and these compounds are not biodegradable. The tanning of leather also consumes a lot of water and energy, making it unsustainable.

SCOBY leather is far less expensive to make than animal hyde because it only requires freshly sweetened tea to grow. When brewing kombucha, the SCOBYs multiply quickly and create even more SCOBYs! Animal goods, on the other hand, are resource demanding, requiring large amounts of food, water, and time.

Demand for Flavored Kombucha Drinks has Grown

During the projected period, flavored drinks are expected to have the largest market share in the kombucha industry. Companies have developed conventional drinks with extra unique flavors to attract consumers, and the market has seen great growth in the last 3-4 years. Furthermore, due to their additional nutritional profile, fruit-flavored drinks are projected to dominate the kombucha industry in the next few years. On April 16, 2018, GT's Living Foods unveiled Bloom, a new limited-edition springtime offering.

A light, crisp, and floral flavor mixing fresh Elderflower, Jasmine, and Violet is part of the product portfolio.The market is being driven by the demand for natural, clean-label, and organic beverages. However, as more people become aware of the kombucha drink and the buzz surrounding it among weight-loss diets, it has continued to rise at an exponential rate. As kombucha tea produces leather as a byproduct, this trend is projected to improve the leather market in the near future.
