Asia represents 87% of the world footwear production

Aug 29, 2016 / World

According to the latest edition of the World Footwear Yearbook Asia continues to be the hub of the footwear production

The fifth edition of the World Footwear Yearbook (available here), developed by APICCAPS, the Portuguese Footwear, Components and Leather Goods Manufacturers’ Association, in partnership with GDS, is now available in paper version and presents the main conclusions regarding the footwear dynamics in 2015.

The World Footwear Yearbook offers a comprehensive picture of the footwear industry worldwide, focusing on the main trends at international trade, consumption and production. Global information is enriched by dozens of individual country profiles, with 79 territories under analysis.

According to the World Footwear in 2015 the worldwide production of footwear reached 23.0 billion pairs, a slight decrease of 0.4% from the previous year.

At continental level, the geographical structure of the industry remains broadly unchanged from previous years. With 87% of world production, Asia is the hub of the footwear industry, with 7 out of the 10 main footwear producers.

At country level, China is the indisputable leader, producing almost 6 out of every 10 pairs of shoes sold in the world. China’s share in the world production has increased in a sustained way in the last few decades, and has peaked in 2013. However, in the last 2 years the country has lost quota in the world production and is back to the share levels of 2010.
