Operators in the Global Footwear Manufacturing industry have experienced relatively slow growth over the five years to 2017, relative to historic years. Improving economic conditions in the United States and European countries, along with economic growth from developing nations, sustained rising global footwear consumption. In the five years to 2022, the Global Footwear Manufacturing industry is forecast to perform better than it did over the past five years. Improving economic conditions in developed economies are expected to generate more demand for footwear, pushing revenue up.
