Industry Overview

India is the second largest footwear manufacturer in the world with 9% of the annual global production of 22 billion pairs. Presently about 90% of the footwear produced in India is consumed by the domestic market and the rest is exported. India’s consumption stands at ~2.1 billion pairs and is third largest globally after China and USA. 3

Increasing consumer preference for brands and a bent towards premium products will be facilitating growth in the forecast period for Indian footwear market. Coupled with a dynamic lifestyle, evolving purchase habits and impact of social media, rapid changes have come about in fashion trends, influencing footwear industry as well. Increasing awareness towards fitness and well-being has only further spurred footwear styling and growth, more so in the branded segment.

Rising disposable income is edging individuals up the value chain promoting occasion based purchases, leading to emergence of new product segments, differentiated by aesthetics, performance and price, be it shoes, sandals or even basic slippers, driving industry leaders to continually innovate their offerings fuelling growth in every category.

Unlike most global markets, the Indian footwear market is skewed towards men with the segment commanding nearly 60% share vis-à-vis a global average of 40%. However, improved education and employment opportunities and the resultant economic empowerment for women has substantially augmented demand of trendy and stylish footwear among women of all age groups and is likely to lead to disproportionately higher growth in the women’s footwear market.

It is expected that the market for footwear will grow on the back of the rise of middle-income group and increase in literacy rate. Further, active participation in the workforce, supported by evergrowing population and urbanization in the country will fuel market growth. Additionally, this evolution has led to a spurt in demand from tier 2 cities and below, opening up newer markets for the footwear industry. Several leading global fashion and lifestyle brands have started betting big on small cities of India. Nearly a third of future consumption in footwear is expected to come from the aspirational consumers in these markets.
