India Footwear Industry

Following are highlights of the Indian footwear Industry (as compiled by ET)

  • India is the second largest producer of footwear in the world after China
  • India accounts for 15% of the global footwear industry
  • Estimated size of the footwear market in India stands at Rs 16,000 crore
  • Unorganised players account for almost 65% of the market
  • Bata claims a market share of 25-30% in the branded market
  • India produces 2065 million pairs of footwear each year
    • Leather shoes – 909 million
    • Leather shoe uppers – 100 million
    • Non- Leather footwear- 1056 million

It must be noted that while ET has mentioned that leather shoes produced in India stand at 909 million pairs, data released by CSO shows that only 2.5 million pairs were produced in India during financial year 2010-11. This may mean that CSO statistics are under-estimates.
