Faux leather furniture is synthetic or artificial furniture that includes chairs, sofas, and headboard upholstery. Rising consumer preference toward home decoration with proper furniture is triggering the growth of the global faux leather furniture market. Faux leather furniture lasts longer than traditional furniture. Faux leather furniture is made of vegan leather that consists of tightly woven microfibers which helps to increase durability; this is advantageous especially in families that have young children. The synthetic materials that are used in the manufacture of faux leather furniture prevent degradation and the damage that can happen during the accidental spill of animal saliva or beverages. Faux leather can be cleaned with damp towels to remove stains and other marks. Additionally, faux leather furniture does not fade or crack when exposed to sunlight. Such furniture also has waterproof features which make it perfect to use as outdoor furniture. Manufacturers are focused on developing new faux leather furniture products to satisfy the changing consumer tastes and preferences related to proper home decoration. In addition to this, with rising consumer awareness about animal safety and environment protection, consumers prefer to purchase faux leather furniture as they reduce the unnecessary cruelty associated with the killing of animals. Thus faux leather furniture is eco-friendly and prevents unnecessary killing of animals.
The global faux leather furniture market has been segmented based on types and application. On the basis of type, the global faux leather furniture market has been segmented into bonded leather upholstery, leather match upholstery, vinyl upholstery, genuine leather and others. By application, the global faux leather furniture market has been segmented into commercial and household.

The global faux leather furniture market is mainly driven by its economical properties. The high cost of real leather drives consumers toward faux leather furniture. Purchasing faux leather furniture saves money compared to the purchase of original leather furniture. Additionally, faux leather mimics the appearance of genuine leather, thus encouraging consumers to buy faux leather furniture. Moreover, manufacturers over the years are inclining toward manufacturing faux leather furniture due to its low production cost. However, faux leather, like real leather is not tear resistant and this is restraining the global faux leather furniture market. In addition, faux leather products such as ultra suede do not prevent dust from entering the cushions of the furniture, thus making it difficult for people who suffer from allergies.
Strong retail networks and rising number of manufacturers of faux leather furniture are likely to generate opportunities for this market during the forecast period.
