Non EU-markets stimulate Spain's exports
In the first nine months of 2018, Spanish footwear exports reached 2.1 billion euros and 122.7 million pairs. Although the EU markets are the main destination for Spanish footwear, non-EU markets have been the more dynamic ones. Information was released by FICE
According to the Federation of Spanish Footwear Industries, FICE, in the first 9 monts of the current year 122.7 million pairs of shoes with a total value of just over 2.1 billion euros were sent abroad to the external markets. 

The EU markets are still the main destination for Spanish footwear, accounting for 80% of total exports in volume and 72% in value. Exports to the EU region reached 1.5 billion euros and 98 million pairs, with decreases of 3.8% in value and 5.1% in volume. France, Italy, Germany, Portugal and the United Kingdom top the list of the main markets.

Exports to destinations outside the EU amounted to 595 million euros in the first nine months of the year (24.8 million pairs), with growth of 7.2% in value, representing 28% of the total. This positive performance was led by strong growth in the US and Chinese markets. 


Types of footwear

Leather footwear represents 56.4% of total exports in value (1,189.5,4 million euros). Non leather footwear represents 70.8% of the Spanish exports in volume, although in value it is only 43.6%. Exports of this type of product decrease by 5.1% in pairs and 3.3% in value.
