Manufacturing, Food Industries to Dominate Demand for Industrial Protective Footwear in Turkey and Russia

Key players in the industrial protective footwear market in Turkey and Russia include Jal Group, Timberland LLC, Cofra Holdings AG, Rahman Group, and Red Wing Shoe Company. 

Increasing Awareness about Workplace Safety Drives Demand for Industrial Protective Footwear

The primary driver for the industrial protective footwear market in Turkey and Russia is the growing awareness about the importance of workplace safety. “While developed regions such as the U.S. and Western Europe already have an established legal framework for workplace safety, developing regions have started the process relatively recently,” said TMR’s lead analyst. The rapid economic development of Russia and Turkey in the last few years has thus led to a growing demand for a standardized workplace safety framework, leading to a steady increase in the demand for industrial protective footwear.

The rapid growth of the urban middle-class demographic has driven the food industry in recent years, with the Turkish food industry likely to be a major consumer of industrial protective footwear in the coming years. The lack of protective clothing in food processing and packaging plants can cause injuries to employees as well as contamination of the food being produced.

Government duties and other regulatory restrictions are the primary restraint on the industrial protective footwear market in Russia and Turkey. While this bodes well for regional manufacturers of industrial protective footwear, multinational giants will find it harder to enter these competitive markets. However, the rising number of workplace accidents is likely to ensure government support to the adoption of advanced industrial protective footwear in the coming years.

Russian Manufacturing Sector Likely to Exhibit Rapid Growth in Demand for Industrial Protective Footwear

Among the key applications of industrial protective footwear, agriculture, government use, and unorganized and small-scale manufacturing were collectively the leading contributors to the overall revenue of the Russia industrial protective footwear market in 2013. Nevertheless, the manufacturing sector in Russia is likely to exhibit a solid growth rate in the coming years. By volume, the oil and gas sector held the leading share in 2013, with around 860,000 pairs of industrial protective footwear in use in the industry.

In Turkey, the manufacturing sector is the dominant consumer of industrial protective footwear. However, the food industry’s steady growth is likely to be the highlight of the Turkey industrial protective footwear market in the coming years.

The Turkey industrial protective footwear market is likely to be valued at US$518.2 mn by 2020. On the other hand, the Russia industrial protective footwear market is expected to be worth US$556.1 mn by 2020.
