The increase in consumer activity is also associated with the effect of deferred demand: shoes are a product with a limited life in 1,5-2 years, and those people who saved on 2015-2016 years are gradually returning to stores. “This year was a turning point for the shoe market: it returned to growth in kind. We see that market demand is gradually recovering. In the next five years, according to forecasts of the Discovery Research Group, the market will grow by an average of 6-7% per year, ”adds Anton Titov.
