DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/c4zcn8/footwear_market) has announced the addition of the "Footwear Market in China 2015" report to their offering.
China, the world's largest manufacturer, consumer and exporter of footwear. Women's footwear dominates the Chinese footwear market, followed by men's footwear and kids' footwear. Footwear materials include leather, natural fabric, natural rubber, artificial fabric and artificial rubber. Majority of the footwear manufacturing bases are located near the east coast of China, and most footwear trading hubs are in close proximity to the manufacturing bases.
Fujian, Zhejiang and Guangdong provinces are the largest footwear manufacturing and trading hubs in the country. Distribution channel of the Chinese footwear market involves agents, distributors, wholesalers and retailers.
The government of China has adopted strict footwear standards that all local and imported footwear products must comply with. By 2016, it is also expected to revise 9 existing standards and formulate 7 new standards. In recent years, China has been transitioning from a manufacturing-driven economy to a consumption-driven economy. This is strongly evident in the footwear market, where several domestic and international companies are moving a part of their production out of China, yet formulating their strategies keeping in mind the requirements of the Chinese consumers.
The growth of the Chinese footwear market has been fuelled by strong national economy, increasing disposable income, expanding consumer base, changing lifestyle, demand for leather footwear and growing retail industry. However, challenges such as high cost of imported raw materials and declining cost competitiveness are expected to shape the future of the Chinese footwear market.
