    − Uttar Pradesh – Kanpur, Unnao, Banther, Agra and Noida − Punjab – Jallandhar .Tamil Nadu accounts for about 40% of India’s exports and has about 60% of tanning capacity.
  • The Indian footwear component industry which is the pride of India in terms of its contribution to total leather exports is facing stiff competition from China in a number of shoe components - cellulose insole fabrics, coated, impregnated fabrics and interlinings, where the price of the imported materials is between 40% and 50% lower than the indigenously produced materials.
  • Global players have shown considerable interest in Indian leather sector and leading leather brands from the US and Europe are sourcing leather and leather products from India.
  • In terms of policy framework, since the trade policy of India has to align with the WTO framework, the import duty on machinery and equipment, components, consumables and even consumer products like shoes, bags, etc. has been considerably reduced, including provision for duty free import of capital goods against certain export obligations.
