Footwear Wholesaling in the US

The Footwear Wholesaling industry has fully recovered from the recession. Improving economic conditions in the United States have propelled this industry out of the recession and redirected it toward its normal growth pattern. Falling unemployment, a strengthening dollar, an increase in per capita disposable income and higher shoe prices have helped preserve profit margins for industry operators, while fueling revenue growth in this industry. Consequently, demand for footwear in the United States has increased, which has helped footwear wholesalers pull themselves out of recession. Over the next five years, international trade in footwear is anticipated to grow. The Trans-Pacific Partnership is expected to increase footwear imports into the United States. Coupled with a rising dollar, this development could benefit the footwear wholesaling industry as increased international trade would require wholesalers to play a larger role in the footwear trade.

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 minimal or no further development or processing. Most wholesalers in this industry undertake sales and administrative activities, such as establishing relationships with manufacturers and retailers.

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