Italy: number of firms in the Italian footwear sector 2014-2018 In 2018, approximately 4.5 thousand companies in Italy were active in the footwear manufacturing sector. The number decreased gradually since 2014, when there were 5 thousand companies operating in the sector. The decrease affected also the employment figures of the sector. In 2018, 75.7 thousand individuals were employed in the footwear industry, compared to over 77 thousand in 2015.
Footwear manufacturing in Italy

Despite the decrease in the number of companies and employees, footwear manufacturing is still a strong sector in Italy. Production value increased overall by approximately ten percent from 2011 to 2018, when it reached 7.85 million euros. Imports also increased significantly during the same period, reaching a value of 5.1 billion euros in 2018.

Exports value on an upward trend

Footwear, in particular leather shoes, is among the most liked Italian products abroad. However, due to the increase in the price of these products manufactured in Italy, the volume of the exports has been decreasing in the last few years. Despite the decrease in export volume, higher prices allowed the exports to increase steadily in value since 2012, reaching approximately 9.6 billion euros in 2018.
