Shoe & Footwear Manufacturing in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Shoe & Footwear Manufacturing in Canada

Similar to most consumer-goods manufacturing industries in Canada, the Footwear Manufacturing industry has had to contend with tough operating conditions over the five years to 2016. Rising input costs, slow growth in per capita disposable income, inflationary pressures, an appreciating dollar in the earlier half of the five-year period and intense competition from less costly imports have played a decisive role in this industry's decline. In the coming years, revenue declines are expected to be far less severe as a result of less room available for foreign competition.

This industry manufactures footwear for adults and children. Orthopedic footwear and specialist athletic footwear, such as skates or roller blades, are not included.

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.
