The overall outlook for the fashion industry remains positive as the share of the apparel and footwear portfolio is expected to decline only slightly, leading to enormous overall growth potential. The most important driver for the global footwear market is the increasing importance of emerging markets not only as production sites but also as consumer markets. This indicates a strong impetus for producers and retailers to diversify their geographical presence to enable further growth. Additionally, the athleisure trend that combines comfort with chic and has elevated functional sportswear to coveted fashion statements is bound to continue.
