LONDON--()--The global footwear market is expected to post a CAGR of over 2% during the period 2019-2023, according to the latest market research report by Technavio.

A key factor driving the growth of the market is the rising demand for exclusive designer collections. Footwear products, such as leather shoes, moccasins, and stilettos for women, that are launched under exclusive designer labels attract consumers across the world. The increasing number of fashion shows, trade exhibitions, and trade fairs motivate manufacturers of designer collections to launch new products or collections. For instance, vendors such as Jimmy Choo, a brand of Capri Holdings, offers a wide range of sandals for women for different purposes such as parties as well as daily and office needs. This collection of footwear is made of strong materials, which can sustain wear and tear. Thus, the launch of exclusive designer collections will positively influence the purchasing behavior of consumers during the forecast period.

As per Technavio, the emergence of smart shoes will have a positive impact on the market and contribute to its growth significantly over the forecast period. This global footwear market 2019-2023 research report also analyzes other important trends and market drivers that will affect market growth over 2019-2023.

Global Footwear Market: Emergence of Smart Shoes

The global footwear market has been witnessing the introduction of smart shoes over the past five years. This is mostly due to rising demand because of factors such as health consciousness, increasing participation in sports; and engagement in fitness activities. The smart shoes that are available assist users with their workouts and help them plan their work schedule to ensure that the activity is executed without injuries. Furthermore, the adoption of smart shoes with features for navigation and positioning is high among the physically-challenged and the geriatric population. These shoes assist by providing alerts about obstacles on the way and by tracking them. Hence, the rising use of smart shoes in sports analytics and for medical purposes will increase the demand for such shoes.

“Apart from the emergence of smart shoes, the rising demand for footwear made of eco-friendly raw materials and the advances in manufacturing technology are some other factors that will boost market growth during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
