Rising Demand for Eco-Friendly Shoes Causing Sales Uptick

At the moment, the majority of footwear producers are responding to the growing demand for sustainable products and recycled materials. As a result, some of the most well-known brands are eliminating the use of fur and leather in favour of recycled plastics, polyester, rubber, and other materials.

This is considered as a critical strategic step by businesses to keep existing customers while also attracting new ones. Some are even rethinking their pricing tactics in order to achieve more traction.

While demand for environmentally friendly products will continue to be the primary growth driver, market expansion will be limited due to the ongoing pandemic. The extraordinary COVID-19 epidemic has wreaked havoc on the supply chain, forcing companies to focus on maximising their internet presence.

According to FMI, during the epidemic, growth will be stunted. Consumers are likely to be more cautious about their decisions in the post-COVID-19 period, therefore the market is predicted to rebound quickly.

“With changing consumer preferences in mind, most businesses are expected to prioritise sustainability.” To achieve a competitive advantage, some of them will use plant-based materials to manufacture shoes,” according to an FMI analyst.
