Growth of Indonesian footwear exports is expected to remain below 10% year-on-year (y/y) in 2018. Sigit Murwito, Executive Director of the Indonesian Footwear Association (Aprisindo), expects Indonesia’s footwear export growth to be in the range of 6-7% (y/y) in 2018. Indonesian footwear products are shipped to 160 countries around the globe. The biggest markets are the European Union (EU) and the United States (USA). Both regions account for almost 60% of Indonesia’s total footwear exports. Meanwhile, the Middle East is also emerging as a strong consumer of Indonesian shoes, supported by strong purchasing power.
