Leather and Allied Products Industries


The leather and allied products major group includes four industries, the most important of which is the footwear industry. These industries have experienced problems causing a steady shrinkage, which began in the 1960s and continued up to 1996. In 1997, shipments of manufactured goods increased by 6% compared to a 4% drop the previous year. This paper, based mainly on the results of the 1996 Annual Survey of Manufactures (ASM), examines some of the factors affecting these industries and compares their performance with that of the manufacturing sector overall.
