Feb '10
The total consumption of footwear in Brazil was 630 million pairs in 2009. Out of this total, 600 million pairs were supplied by the Brazilian industry and 30 million were imported. The footwear sales in the Brazilian market grew 8% in 2009, and the retail already forecasts an increase of 10% in 2010.

In 2009 the Brazilian footwear industry produced 725 million pairs. 125 million pairs were exported to over 140 countries, with an invoicing of US$ 1.3 billion in 2009. Foreign sales dropped 28% during the last year, because of the world economic crisis and the strong valorization of the Real vis-à-vis the US Dollar.

Brazil boasts the most complete footwear cluster in the world.
In the country there are approximately 1,500 large, medium and small size footwear industries and more than 5,000 micro-companies and ateliers.

Brazil also boasts the world's largest commercial cattle herd. The country has 800 tanneries, that produced 43 million hides in 2009 and exported US$ 1.1 billion, with a 38% drop compared to 2008.

The footwear chain also features 2 thousand industries of components for leather and footwear, and of industries that produce machineries and equipment.

The footwear chain in Brazil generates around 1 million direct and indirect jobs: 400 thousand in the footwear industry; 400 thousand in the footwear retail; and the rest is divided among tanneries, industries of components, and industries that produce machineries and equipment.

Brazil has been manufacturing footwear for over 100 years and exports since the 70's
In addition to the large clusters of Vale dos Sinos (Rio Grande do Sul) and Franca (São Paulo), the leather-footwear chain is present today in over 20 States of Brazil.
