Abstract

Tannery industry is considered as one of the major growing business segment around the world. This industry occupies a promising place in the global market place due to its enormous export, growth and employment opportunities. In Oman, currently there is no tannery industry, which can be established with the objective to diversify its economic growth outside mostly oil-based industry. This study therefore, explores an opportunity to design and develop of an entrepreneur model from the perspective of tannery industry in Oman. In order to develop such entrepreneur model, necessary data were collected from various regions within the Sultanate of Oman. In addition to develop such the model, this study also considered the total leather production system starting from collecting the raw materials to all stages of treatment and finally physical distribution to the market.
