All China Leather Exhibition (ACLE, also known as Shanghai Leather Fair) is the definitive and only international leather fair in China. Organised by China Leather Industry Association (CLIA) and APLF Limited, ACLE is the premier event for international companies seeking opportunities in China's huge markets - the focus of the global leather industry. Since its inception back in 1998, ACLE has welcomed hundreds of thousands of buyers from the main tannery and leather goods / footwear manufacturing provinces of Mainland China. 



ACLE has proven itself to be the fastest-growing leather fair in the context of China being the main areas of growth in the global leather industry, and the strong demand for leather from surrounding countries such as Vietnam and Indonesia. Indeed, the China leather industry is leading the world in the following areas:



  • China produces most leather in the world, and has a huge demand for hides and skins, leather chemicals and leather machineries.

  • China is the unchallenged leader of footwear exports with a market shares of 40%, and leading the demand for shoe leather, shoe components and shoe making machines.

  • China is the biggest automotive manufacturing country, producing 30% of the total numbers of cars in the world, making it the largest importer of automotive and upholstery leather.

  • ACLE is the official leather exhibition co-organised by the ruling authority of leather in China - the CLIA together with its joint organiser, APLF Limited.



ACLE target the Chinese tanning (upstream) sectors which source raw hides and skins, semi-finished leather, leather chemicals and leather machinery to manufacture finished leather to be used in the domestic footwear, leather goods and automotive upholstery sectors. International tanneries will also exhibit in this leather platform to promote their products to domestic footwear and automotive leather importers.
