The Indian footwear market -a major uprising
Even in today's recession-hit scenario the Indian economy is still growing at a 7% growth rate when many countries are reporting a negative growth rate, one other reason is the large domestic consumption of footwear within the country because of the large population especially the Middle and Upper segment and in metros and 2nd level cites within the country. Shoe making remains highly labour intensive as the industry is also an important source of employment, especially for semi and unskilled workers.

Due to the encouraging support from the government policies with reference to the Indian footwear market, India has witnessed promising technology inflow and Foreign Direct Investment. The entire leather sector is now de-licensed and de-reserved, paving way for expansion on modern lines with state-of-the-art machinery and equipments.

As per the latest Indian footwear market trend, the consumer demand has witnessed a steep rise especially in North India, which is also a major hub for production of footwear and components.

fMM&T 09 is aimed at creating a bridge between the footwear manufacturers and the component producers targeting the vast Indian footwear market.

The Organisers
fMM&T brings together two highly experienced organisations : The Indian Footwear Components Manufacturers Association (IFCOMA) and APLF.
