Region : Global | Report ID: FBI106964 | Status : Ongoing



Consumers utilize industrial safety shoes to protect themselves from falling objects, electrical contacts, mobile machinery, and other injuries during industrial work. A variety of industrial safety footwear made out of materials, such as rubber, leather, and plastic are available. Rapid industrial development, growing health concerns, and increasing worker safety awareness in the industrial sector are driving the growth of the industrial safety footwear market.

Safety footwear is designed to provide protection, comfort, prevent foot fatigue, ensure worker safety, and improve work efficiency. Features, such as improved non-slip, reduced foot fatigue, and players active in the market have incorporated enhanced arch & heel support, into industrial protective shoes. Leather is widely preferred as it is not only popular for fashionable footwear but also because it is a non-conductive material widely used in safety footwear to provide protection from harmful electric shocks. Leather accounts for more than 75% of the global market.

In recent times, manufacturers are introducing new lightweight protective shoes compared to heavy boots. These shoes are far more sophisticated than the shoes available in the past and provide more protection, so the world standard for protective shoes is constantly evolving. Governments in different countries around the world help to reduce injuries by providing safety footwear to employees, protecting employees with standard industrial shoes, reducing downtime, and improving productivity. More focus is provided on workplace safety.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Industrial Safety Footwear Market 

The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting a variety of industries around the world, including the safety footwear market. The goal of key safety footwear players is shifting to clearance tactics and inventory management while monitoring changes in consumer behavior after the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic enforced a lot of pressure on the industrial safety footwear market as factories strictly adhered to national lockdowns.

In addition, companies, such as Honeywell International Inc. and JAL Group France SAS, reported a drop in consumer demand for industrial safety footwear as customers cut back or postponed discretionary spending in response to the impact of COVID-19 on the industrial safety footwear market. The market is experiencing a supply-demand gap as production was shut down during the crisis. Still, in the mid of a crisis, manufacturers are actively supporting the COVID-19 infrastructure by making masks made from the fabrics used for shoe linings. Bata recently donated washable shoes to hospitals nationwide. The company's sales are expected to grow over the long term.
