Global Footwear Manufacturing

Global Footwear Manufacturing

Recessionary conditions in the global economy hampered demand for footwear in the five years to 2014. Still, industry revenue grew over the period as demand from emerging nations propped up the industry even when spending in the United States and Europe waned. In the five years to 2020, the industry is forecast to recover strongly as demand from developed economies rebounds. Also, as both Europe and the United States slowly recover from recessions, revenue is forecast to follow suit.

Industry operators manufacture a wide range of footwear for men, women and children. These companies manufacture rubber and plastic footwear, plastic or fabric uppers, and rubber and plastic protective footwear. Operators in this industry also manufacture house slippers and slipper socks. Operators may manufacture men's or women's footwear designed for dress, street or work.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
