LeatherXchange expand LX Information Services21 May 2002
LeatherXchange, the service provider to the global leather industry, have announced that they have broadened their LX Information Services to ensure that their clients have the most relevant and timely market intelligence and trends. LeatherXchange's flagship report, Hides & Skins World Markets and Prices, is now 30% larger and contains greater insight on more than 50 of the world's most important internationally traded hides and skins. Ron Sauer, who has authored the report since he founded it in 1985, now updates it daily so users can follow the latest leather market pricing and supply and demand tendencies. 'It's widely considered to be the Dow Jones Index of the global leather industry', said Jose R Suarez, ceo of LeatherXchange. 'It's the world's only neutral report offering incisive, in-depth charts and data, which helps the sector do business smarter.' Report subscribers, who access the information on the LX website, will also benefit from additional content enhancements: * The creation of very specific price indexes for special leather types used in garments, upholstery, automotive coverings and footwear. * A foreign exchange converter that enables users to view, within the entire report, leather prices in the currency of their choice. * A general hide and skin price index that provides a 10-year view of prices for over 50 of the world's most representative hides and skins (in addition to the 12-month view). * More than 60 charts showing pricing trends on specific hides and skins. Hides & Skins World Markets and Prices complements other information services such as LX Country Reports, Viewpoints and LX Leather News.
