Footwear Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges
The rising demand for exclusive designer collections is notably driving the footwear market growth, although factors such as rising labor cost and fluctuating raw material prices may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the footwear industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.
Key Footwear Market Driver
One of the key factors driving growth in the footwear market is the design and material innovations leading to product premiumization. The vendors are constantly innovating and introducing new patterns and designs due to market competition and evolving customer demand because of continuous changes in the fashion industry. Customers seek footwear for formal, especially leather footwear, and casual, such as sports or canvas shoes, purposes. Therefore, the vendors regularly expand their brand and product lines. Athletic footwear belongs to the promoted product segment. The demand for such footwear has been increasing because of the availability of innovative products, which offer premium appeal, that can also be used as partywear. High demand and premiumization allow manufacturers to increase the price of their products. Innovations in designs and celebrity endorsements of products have enabled vendors to cater to the demand from the high-income customer base. Key vendors design personalized and customized athletic shoes to expand their customer base.
Key Footwear Market Trend
The increasing demand for customized footwear is another factor supporting the footwear market share growth. Customization is available for various types of footwear. The customization of premium footwear includes the application of hard metals, such as gold and silver, and precious stones, such as diamonds. In the last five years, the popularity of customized products has increased in developed regions such as the Americas and Europe. Emerging countries, such as China and India, are also experiencing a growing demand for customized premium goods, including premium footwear. In the premium segment, the leading vendors offer customized products, which have an aesthetic appeal. The extent of personalization can vary from design, logo, color, buckles to embroidery or adding names. The advent of the customization of footwear globally complements market growth through new purchases. During the forecast period, the customization of footwear is expected to increase the revenues of the footwear manufacturers.
Key Footwear Market Challenge
The rising labor cost and fluctuating raw material prices will be a major challenge for the footwear market during the forecast period. Several international vendors, such as Prada, Tapestry, and D&G, have their own production facilities or original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in Asian countries, such as China, India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and Vietnam. This is due to the availability of low-cost manufacturing and the low cost of operations in these countries. However, in the last decade, the cost of labor in these countries rose rapidly, which increased the cost of production. Evolving and dynamic economic conditions have also adversely affected the cost of labor in countries from which the vendors import their supplies. Therefore, the rising cost of production for the manufacturers lowers their profit margins. Fluctuations in raw material costs are another challenge for vendors. The cost of these materials is also dependent on transportation costs. The transportation costs incurred by companies include taxes, duties, and fuel costs. A major portion of the transportation cost incurred by the vendors is the cost of fuel, which fluctuates frequently. An increase in transportation costs increases the cost of end-products.
This footwear market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.

The sales of footwear products witnessed a decline until the second half of 2020, as people were still practicing self-isolation.
