According to statistics from the Vietnam Leather, Footwear and Handbag Association (LEFASO), the country’s footwear exports will achieve more than US$20 billion in sales this year after suffering from a decline last year due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on supply chains, consumption, and trade.
Combined with the signature of EVFTA and CPTPP, Vietnam’s leather and footwear industry is expected to maintain high growth in the coming years. Although Covid-19 had a significant negative impact on the Vietnam footwear market, it also brings some opportunities for the local footwear industry.
Because of the pandemic, Vietnamese enterprises improved their ability to do research and development and sample design in-house. The domestic supply of raw materials and components has increased and is currently estimated to satisfy 50 tp 60 per cent of the local demand. Meanwhile, Covid-19 also has spurred decision makers to refocus more on sustainability and digital transformation.
The 6th Vietnam Footwear Summit 2022 will bring together about 150+ footwear industry experts and senior executives to deeply analyze Vietnam’s footwear industry from pandemic resilience to economic recovery and the new trends in the Vietnam market in the post-Covid-19, such as supply chain localisation and industrial cluster establish.
The summit will also discuss industry hot topics such as sustainability, digital transformation initiatives in design, supply chain and manufacturing. In addition, this summit will provide a reference and industry exchange platform for Vietnam’s footwear market through keynote speeches and group discussions help the attendees get a better understanding of Vietnam footwear industry development status and find business opportunity.
