Humungous Demand For Product To Drive Footwear Market Size

“Lucrative demand for comfortable, convenient, and user-friendly footwear among different age-groups of population will tend the demand curve for footwear products towards the positive axis on the growth graph of footwear market,” says the author of this study. Apart from this, the rise in involvement & participation of the individuals in sports events along with the drastically altering life patterns will further enlarge the growth trajectory of footwear market in the coming years.

Availability of variety of footwear products, exponentially increasing population base, and swelling of disposable incomes of consumers are few of the other factors driving the footwear market revenue.

The easy accessibility of counterfeit products developed by local manufacturers, however, is anticipated to restrict the expansion of the global footwear market in the years to come. Nevertheless, escalating health consciousness among the non-sportspersons is predicted to enhance the popularity of the athletic shoes, thereby generating lucrative growth avenues for footwear market. This, in turn, will normalize the impact of hindrances on the market, reports the study.

Rising Health Consciousness Among the Population To Steer Regional Growth

Regionally, North America has been leading the worldwide footwear market and is anticipated to continue on the dominant position in the years to come, states the market study. Mounting awareness among the residents of the region to stay healthy, fit, and active is the main factor behind the dominance of the North America footwear market. The high number of market players being headquartered in North America is another significant factor that is supporting this regional market.
