RNCOS White Paper: Indian Footwear Industry is growing at a Pace

India is standing on the threshold of a retail revolution and witnessing fast changing retail landscape, with footwear market is set to experience phenomenal growth in coming years. The Indian footwear market is largely unorganized which is evident from the fact that branded footwear constitutes approximately one third of the total market size.

India is the second largest footwear producing country (after China) and is third largest consuming country (after China and the US). It has been found that the major production centers are located in few selected cities like Chennai, Ranipet and Ambur in Tamil Nadu, Mumbai in Maharashtra, Kanpur and Agra in UP, Jalandhar in Punjab, and New Delhi.

With rising brand consciousness among Indian woman compared to the past state of being product-conscious, more and more internationally renowned players are expected to enter the Indian market. Further, given India’s young population, the market for children footwear is also attractive for new organized players to enter and earn supernormal profits. The London based British luxury men’s footwear and accessories brand Harrys is planning to open its first outlet in Delhi, followed by Mumbai by early 2018 and the Russia based Kid’s clothing, footwear, and accessories brand Acoola has opened their first store Logix City Center Mall, Noida (U.P).
