Currently, Indonesia is in the 6th position in the world as an exporter of leather products, footwear, and finished leather goods. With a total domestic per capita consumption of 3.4 pairs in 2017, the Indonesian market has the potential to be filled by local producers, including footwear SMEs and in the future, with high purchasing power, the potential for domestic consumption will also increase. Meanwhile, footwear export performance in 2017 also increased from USD 4.9M from USD 4.6M in 2016. Meanwhile, the contribution of the footwear sector to GDP (Gross Domestic Income) also increased from Rp. 25.8T in 2016 to Rp. 26.4T in 2017.
