Published on Oct 27, 2021

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Europe Footwear Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” finds that the Europe footwear market is currently witnessing moderate growth. Footwear is worn to provide protection and comfort to the feet. It also eases locomotion and aids in preventing injuries due to the adversities of the environment like temperature and ground textures. Over the years, the styles and quality of footwear have significantly evolved with the changing fashion trends. As a result, consumers in the European region are shifting toward footwear with advanced technical fabrications that blend comfort with fashion.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
