Asia accounts for more than half of global consumption

Asia’s consumption accounts for more than half of the grand total. Europe and North America each represent 15%.

Over the last decade Asia’s demographic and economic dynamism has been responsible for a rise of 9 percentage points in its share of world consumption, with Africa’s share also increasing significantly.

Nonetheless, there are still important geographic differences in consumption patterns. Per capita footwear consumption varies from between 1.6 pairs in Africa to 5.6 pairs in North America.

Top Footwear Consumers

China leads the rank of Top 10 Footwear Consumers in 2019, with a world share of 18.7%. It is followed by India, with a share of 11.6% and the US with a share of 10.9%. The European Union, if taken as one region, would represent the second largest consumer market for footwear with 2 680 million pairs consumed in 2019.
