Number of employees in the Italian footwear industry in Italy from 2014 to 2018

by Statista Research Department, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Italy: number of employees in the Italian footwear sector 2014-2018 In 2018, the Italian footwear sector counted in total 75.7 thousand employees. This figure decreased steadily since 2015, when the sector counted over 77 thousand employees. The decreasing number of employees was mostly due to the fact that many companies in the sector either closed down or moved abroad. In fact, the number of companies operating in the footwear industry sank by approximately ten percent since 2014, reaching 4.5 thousand in 2018.
Exports are king

The Italian footwear industry is highly dependent on exports. In fact, data show that in the last few years the export value of the Italian footwear sector increased steadily in the last few years, reaching a peak in 2018, when they were estimated at 9.5 billion euros. In comparison, the imports of shoes to Italy amounted to just 5.1 billion euros in 2018.

EU: main destination of Italian footwear

When looking at more detailed data, it can be seen that the European Union is the main destination for the Italian footwear industry. In 2018, Italy exported 4.15 billion euros worth of footwear to the EU. Among the EU countries, France was the country that imported the most in terms of value, while Germany imported the most in terms of volume.
