Leather tanning and finishing

2013 revenue: $1.84 billion

2018 revenue: $1.66 billion

"The primary factors affecting risk for US tanners are revenue volatility and high import activity. Low disposable incomes during the recession pushed consumers to reduce their spending, which flowed on as lower demand for leather goods."

The risk level for this industry is 'high' and revenue is expected to fall at an average annual rate of 1.9% over the next five years.
