The shoes and accessories market in India is growing at a steady rate and the footwear market is set to experience phenomenal growth. The burgeoning Indian middle class is the biggest driver of consumption, propelling the growth of the industry– all of this bolstered by the fact that India has been rated as the second most attractive emerging market for investment and the fifth largest retail destination by AT Kearney. Pegged at US$342 billion, the Indian retail market is expected to go up to US$833 billion by 2015 as per CB Richard Ellis. With a population of 330 million people (30 per cent of the population) living in cities, 35 million (11 per cent of this urban population) are categorised as mass affluent. India has recorded a sustained GDP growth of about 6% per year since 1991, which has led to a dramatic increase in per capita disposable income of the urban population. India's consumption story is set to maintain its course of about 14% growth over the next three years. Multinationals are committing resources to India not only for manufacturing but also for innovation. Indian managers are being given positions of power to steer growth in emerging markets.
