As many as 20 shoe exporters associated with the Indian Council for Leather Exports (CLE) will exhibit at Fashion Access, Asia's leading business platform for footwear and fashion accessories, to be held in March 2018. India accounts for nearly 9 per cent of the global annual footwear production of 22 billion pairs, while China produces over 60 per cent.

In the upcoming edition of Fashion Access scheduled to be held in Hong Kong from March 14 to 16, the council will focus on the display of footwear from India in a dedicated footwear pavilion. India is globally the second largest footwear producer after China. Key production centres include Kanpur and Agra in Uttar Pradesh, Ranipet, Vaniyambadi and Ambur in Tamil Nadu.

The participating footwear companies include Superhouse, Siddharth Exports, Dawar Footwear India, Gupta Overseas, Rana Overseas Shoes, Deepak Impex, Ram Fashions, Sahyog Export, Tryshoera (India), and Arvind Footwear.

The market currently is dominated by men's footwear which accounts for close to 58 per cent of the total Indian footwear retail market. In term of product type, the market is dominated by casual footwear that accounts for approximately 67 per cent of the retail market.

At the international exhibition, the council will seek to highlight the opportunities present in India to persuade leading brands and buyers to collaborate with Indian companies and manufacture in India under the facilitating Make in India initiative, aimed at tapping the huge Indian market and exporting to overseas countries.

"Over the years CLE members have been having such presentations of Indian leather at Asia Pacific Leather Fair Ltd and to some extent of leather accessories and garments at Fashion Access; but footwear has not been highlighted. The dedicated Indian Footwear Pavilion at Fashion Access is to showcase Indian footwear in a focused manner as Hong Kong—an important partner in India’s leather sector trade— is the destination with maximum exports after the US and main European markets," said chairman of the council, Mukhtarul Amin.
