This report covers the footwear market in Italy, with a focus on footwear specialists. The report does not cover non-specialists, such as department stores, in detail although these are looked at briefly in the Channels of Distribution section and also in our consumer research. The report combines analysis of the market in Italy, including market sizes, specialists’ sales and forecasts, along with our in-depth consumer data, which analyses shoppers’ behaviour.
For the consumer research we asked questions on the following topics:
For the purpose of this report, Mintel has used the following definitions:
Consumer spending: The total amount spent by Italy households (including sales tax) through all retail channels – both specialist and non-specialist. This covers all footwear categories, including trainers, but excludes game specific footwear (e.g. football boots, ski-boots) and orthopaedic footwear.
Retail sales: total sales of all types of footwear (excluding sales tax) via stores and directly to the consumer by specialist retailers of footwear. It includes online sales of these retailers where the majority of sales are in bricks and mortar outlets.
Channels of distribution: Mintel estimates of the proportions of spending on footwear via other channels, including the grocers, mixed goods retailers and non-store retailers.
“Italians spend the most per head on footwear of consumers in the big four European markets covered in this report series, making it an attractive and potentially lucrative market for footwear retailers. But growth in spending has slowed in recent years as consumer confidence has declined due to the country’s economic problems. Specialists in the middle and mass markets are doing well as shoppers move away from the more premium brands, and international retailers, both online and store-based, are driving much of this growth. It remains a highly competitive sector with the fashion retailers and sports specialists both formidable rivals.”
