In the 21st century, with the rapid development of the national economy, people’s living standard has been greatly improved. So people have not been satisfied with original low-end products and accordingly they put forward higher requirements for the artificial leather industry. It’s an inevitable trend to research and develop artificial leather with better performances. The domestic artificial leather industry also falls into the trough. In order to survive, companies research and develop new products according to their own situation. Some of them invested much money to develop microfiber synthetic leather.
Currently microfiber synthetic leather mainly includes two categories: figured sea-island fiber and unfigured sea-island fiber. For the unfigured sea-island fiber, PA6 is as material and the figured sea-island fiber is with polyester as material. The development of micro fiber is very rapid in the past two years. Many synthetic leather factories, Chemical fiber and nonwoven companies invest in it. At present, it is mainly dominated by Shandong, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Fujian and Shanghai.
