A resident of Switzerland buys 6 pairs of shoes a year

According to the latest figures from the World Footwear Yearbook, in 2020 domestic footwear consumption in Switzerland was 55 million pairs, down 10% from the previous year. This corresponds to an average of 6 pairs of shoes per person per year, writes Worldfootwear.com.

Approximately two thirds of shoe sales in Switzerland come from leather shoes. About 26% of shoes are sold online.

Swiss shoe imports exceed exports by around 45-50 million pairs of shoes per year, with a negative balance reduced to 2020 million in 19 as a result of the COVID-39 pandemic. In value terms, Switzerland's footwear trade deficit exceeds $2020 billion and, despite reduced imports in 1,3, peaked at $XNUMX billion.

Although Switzerland is not a member of the European Union (EU), it has access to the EU's single internal market, allowing the free movement of their goods, services, capital and people.

The population of Switzerland is about 8,6 million people and is growing by 1,1% annually. One of the factors responsible for this growth is the increase in life expectancy over the past decade, reaching 83,6 years in 2020. Although most of Switzerland's population lives in cities, its cities are relatively small. Zurich, with a population of 342, is the largest, while Bern, the capital, has only 121 inhabitants.

The Swiss economy is the seventh largest in Europe with a gross domestic product (GDP) of US$748 billion. GDP per capita reaches 86,6 thousand US dollars, which is the third largest indicator in Europe.
