About This Report


Getting the boot

Despite the economic recovery, footwear wholesalers have little to look forward to. Retailers and consumers (with the help of the internet) will increasingly purchase shoes directly from the manufacturers, bypassing wholesalers altogether. Furthermore, an increase in cheap imports will cut into domestic sales. Wholesalers will be forced to slash prices just to stay competitive, causing their profit to suffer. To expand their sales, shoe wholesalers will look overseas for new opportunities.

Operators in this industry wholesale footwear (including athletic shoes) made of leather, rubber and other materials. Businesses in this industry purchase shoes from manufacturers and resell them to retailers with minimum or no further development and processing. Most wholesalers in this industry undertake sales and administrative activities, such as establishing relationships with manufacturers and retailers.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
