Global Footwear Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Footwear Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market attained a value of about USD 417.50 billion in 2023. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% in the forecast period of 2024-2032 to reach a value of around USD 642.16 billion by 2032.

Footwear encompasses a diverse range of products such as shoes, boots, sandals, sneakers, slippers, heels, loafers, flats, moccasins, and clogs, among others. The footwear market growth is experiencing an uptick amid the growing need for trendy, comfortable, and sports-oriented footwear. This surge is driven by the increasing engagement in sports activities and a rising preference for eco-friendly shoe options.


The market expansion is further being fuelled by the increasing prevalence of online sales, substantial investments in advertising by footwear brands, and a heightened desire for athletic footwear. Additionally, the growing occurrences of lifestyle-related health concerns, including stress and obesity, are motivating a greater portion of the population to participate in sports and fitness pursuits, consequently driving the demand for fashionable and comfortable footwear.


Regionally, the Asia Pacific is expected to hold a significant share of the global market during the forecast period. Japan, Taiwan, India, and China stand out as lucrative markets in the Asia Pacific, driven by the rising disposable incomes and improved living standards of consumers.


In April 2023, Skechers USA Inc. (NYSE: SKX) announced its decision to acquire Sports Connection Holding ApS, its current distributor in Scandinavia. The acquisition includes 58 Skechers retail outlets, multiple e-commerce platforms, and a network of over 1,600 wholesale customers. Following the completion of the deal, Sports Connection is expected to function as a wholly owned subsidiary of Skechers, taking a leading role in advancing the brand's expansion across the Nordic countries, encompassing Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands.
