Iranian shoe exports up 16,4%

Director of the Department of Textile and Light Industry of the Ministry of Industry, Mines and Trade Mehdi Eslampenah in an interview with IRIB News said that in seven months of this year, the export of Iranian footwear and its components increased by 16,4% compared to the same period last year.
According to Mehdi Eslampenah, the volume of exports of these products for the specified period in value terms amounted to 70 million dollars. At the same time, about 90% of export deliveries were made to the countries of the region, in particular to Azerbaijan, Iraq, Turkmenistan, Saudi Arabia, Tajikistan and Afghanistan. The rest of Iranian footwear was exported to Europe and Latin America.
Mehdi Eslampenah noted that in Iran there are about 8,5 thousand shoe factories and workshops that produce 263 million pairs of shoes per year. 200 thousand people are directly employed in the industry.

Per capita shoe consumption in the country is 2,5 pairs per year, and Iran accounts for 1,5% of the world's footwear production.

Mehdi Eslampenah stressed that Iranian shoe makers use high-quality raw materials and their products are in good demand, including in the markets of neighboring countries.

According to Mehdi Eslampenah, smuggling of footwear, primarily Chinese, poses a serious threat to the domestic footwear industry, and foreign exchange fluctuations and high customs costs are an obstacle to the export of Iranian footwear.

According to Mehdi Eslampenah, more than 80% of the country's needs for footwear can be provided through domestic production, and the growth of Iranian footwear exports indicates an increase in its quality. This was reported by Iran News.
