Technological innovation, increased marketing, awareness of the right fit shoe, and an increase in disposable income are factors that will help surge demand for footwear in the forecasted years.

The non-athletic segment had the largest market share. A large number of players worldwide manufacturing different types of footwear like boots, sandals, sneakers, and flats, to cater to ever-changing consumer preferences can be attributed to its growth. Sustainable footwear is an emerging trend in this segment where brands source their raw materials from ethical sources and commit to zero environmental wastes and toxins.

Men dominated the end-use segment, and the interest in outdoor activities can be attributed to this majority share. Multi-use shoes that have features of both sports and casual wear are gaining traction amongst this user segment. Even cult brands have increased spending on marketing as emerging players are catching consumer attention too. Major celebrity endorsements help create a huge impact in endorsing sustainable footwear.

The market is dominated by well-established brands that have a strong presence globally. Apart from them, there are also small and medium-sized players who sell in regional markets.
