COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a detrimental influence on the worldwide market for sustainable footwear. Due to total lockdown circumstances, which have resulted in the closure of hypermarkets/supermarkets, specialized stores, and other businesses, the market's development is slowing. Furthermore, all sustainable footwear production units were shut down, resulting in supply chain disruptions, order cancellations, export bans, product import bans from several countries, and raw material shortages.

In addition, to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, many limits were imposed on the supply of non-essential items in particular locations and nations, resulting in a drop in market demand. People were unable to participate in outdoor activities such as basketball, soccer, and others due to lockdown conditions. In addition, gyms and fitness centers shuttered, lowering demand for athletic footwear.

Growth Factors

One of the major growth drivers for the Global Sustainable Footwear Market is the changing lifestyles. The growing desire for stylish and elegant footwear at an accessible price has resulted from changing lifestyle preferences. Over time, the footwear business has evolved and observed customer habits and behaviours. In this sense, millennials' on-the-go lifestyle has encouraged businesses to raise their manufacturing size. Consumers seek adaptability, comfort, functionality, sustainability, and performance in a variety of contexts, according to the NDP Group. As a result of this element, businesses have begun to include social and environmental concern into their creative sustainable footwear production.

Another factor for the growth in this market is increase in health awareness among people. The increased demand for sustainable sports footwear is due to people's rising health consciousness and desire to keep healthy and avoid chronic diseases. Obesity and a sedentary lifestyle have prompted individuals to exercise regularly and participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor sports such as basketball, soccer, badminton, jogging, and other activities. All of these activities have boosted the desire for footwear that is both comfortable and fashionable, as well as durable.
