The anticipated rise in spending on branded luxury items is poised to be a significant catalyst in driving the growth of the footwear store market. Luxury items encompass elite goods and services, including haute couture clothing, high-end accessories such as jewelry, watches, and renowned branded footwear. Customers exhibit a growing inclination toward purchasing luxury items from both online and offline stores, driven by the allure of prestige and comfort. For instance, as reported by Bank of America in 2021, luxury spending surged by 14%, reaching a notable 26% growth for higher-income consumers while showing a 5% increase for lower-income earners in the United States. Moreover, overall luxury spending in 2021 soared by a staggering 47% compared to figures from 2019. This escalating trend of heightened expenditure on branded luxury items is expected to substantially propel the footwear store market.
The burgeoning involvement in sports activities is anticipated to significantly contribute to the expansion of the footwear stores market. Sports encompass structured physical activities or games involving skill, competition, and defined regulations, often pursued for recreation, fitness, or competitive purposes. Footwear stores play a pivotal role in catering to athletes and sports enthusiasts, providing specialized shoes designed to enhance performance, comfort, and prevent injuries during sports engagements. Notably, a survey conducted by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) in September 2023 revealed a remarkable increase in high school sports participation, totaling 7,857,969 individuals during the 2022-2023 season. This marked growth of nearly 240,000 individuals, signifying a rise of over 3% compared to the preceding year's figures. Consequently, the upsurge in sports participation stands as a driving force propelling the footwear stores market.
Innovative transformations within footwear stores emerge as a significant trend shaping the footwear stores market. Leading companies within this domain are focusing on establishing digitally equipped stores to fortify their market presence. For instance, in October 2021, Puma, a prominent Germany-based footwear company, inaugurated its largest store in Gurgaon, India. This expansive 7,000 square feet store is designed as a digitally enhanced experiential retail space, featuring various digital touchpoints. The store aims to attract digitally savvy consumers who increasingly prefer online shopping experiences, reflecting the industry's endeavor to adapt and engage tech-savvy consumers through innovative store concepts.
Prominent companies within the footwear stores market are dedicated to revolutionizing customer shopping experiences by leveraging cutting-edge tools, particularly Augmented Reality (AR) technology. The AR tool represents an innovative technology overlaying digital elements, such as images, text, or 3D models, onto the real-world setting in real time. An illustrative example is Amazon Fashion's introduction, in June 2022, of the 'Virtual Try-On for Shoes' feature within its iOS app. This augmented reality (AR) functionality enables customers in the US and Canada to virtually try on shoes from brands such as New Balance and Adidas. Users can effortlessly visualize how the shoes appear by activating the 'Virtual Try-On' feature and pointing their device's camera at their feet. This AR tool aims to elevate the presentation of products for brands while assisting customers in making informed purchasing decisions by virtually trying on shoes through an immersive experience.
