Aesthetic value, safety, innovation, and comfort are the key characteristics of protective footwear. Shoemakers over the years have been striving to bring together these main features to provide maximum safety in the workplace and also offer comfort to workers in the long run. Industrial footwear has been witnessing strong demand from various industries to avoid occupational accidents and fatalities.
With the constantly evolving dynamics of the industrial protective footwear market, this industry is anticipated to witness rapid growth in the coming years. Recently, JAL Group signed an agreement with Japan based Simon Corporation regarding an exchange of technical and manufacturing knowledge to benefit both companies. Partnerships such as these greatly improve product offerings and this is likely to generate a new wave of consumers in the industrial protective footwear market.

Robust demand from countries such as Japan, China, and India is projected to drive the Asia Pacific market over the coming years. Another important factor that is fueling the industrial protective footwear market is the implementation of stringent safety regulations and relentless support from bodies such as the International Labor Organization.
