Rising Demand for Eco-Friendly Shoes Causing Sales Uptick

At present, maximum number of footwear manufacturers are acting in response to the increasing demand for sustainable products and recycled commodities. Some of the leading brands are therefore abandoning the use of fur and leather and replacing them materials used with recycled plastics and polyester, rubber, and others.

This is seen as a key strategic move among companies to retain existing consumers and attract new ones. Some of them are even reviewing their pricing strategies to gain better traction.

While demand for eco-friendly products will remain the chief growth driver, expansion of the market will remain subdued amid the ongoing pandemic. The unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak has caused significant disruptions in supply chain, compelling brands to focus on leveraging their online presence.

Growth according to FMI, will remain stunted during the pandemic. However, the market is expected to recover soon since consumers are likely to be more cautious about their choices in the post COVID-19 period.

“Keeping in mind shifting preference of consumers, most companies are expected to focus on sustainability. Some of them will also include plant-based materials for manufacturing shoes to gain competitive advantage,” said an FMI analyst.

Who is winning?

Some of the key companies operating in the vegan footwear market are Nike Inc., Susi Studio, Adidas AG, Matt & Nat, Veerah, Hexa Vegan Shoes, AVESU GMBH, Beyond Skin UKamong, Ethletic, MooShoes, and others.

Several vegan footwear companies are spending on promotional activities, expansion of their physical store presence, and entering into a strategic partnership with prominent retailers to cater to growing consumer demand.
