the MICAM - The Italian Footwear Industry - First Half 2020

Saturday, September 19, 2020 - 22:42English
The health emergency has had major repercussions on the performance of the footwear sector in the first half of the year, with a fall in national production and company turnover in the region of -35%. In terms of consumption, household spending is down 30%, despite the big increase in online purchases (+42%) resulting from shops closing as part of restrictive measures. The post lockdown restart is proving to be extremely slow: sales in Italy are still down (-29% in quantity in May and -7% in June), whereas exports were down -27% in volume for May and June after the collapse (-50%) in the previous two months. The first six months of the year closed with across-the-board reductions for foreign sales: -22% in quantity for EU markets and -33.4% in non-EU markets, with a sharp reduction in the balance of payments surplus (-34%). The number of companies continues to fall (-77 since the start of the year) along with the workforce (-520), and concern remains high over employment figures in the coming months. Recourse to wages support soared in the leather area: +878% for the period January-June.

Manfred Junkert Managing Director Federal Association of the German Footwear and Leather Goods Industry • The corona pandemic causes a 21 percent sales collapse in the first half of 2020 • Imports and exports decline • HDS/L calls for no additional burdens to facilitate economic recovery Sales and employment trend The corona pandemic ended the upward trend that the German footwear industry had experienced in recent years. The worldwide closing of the stationary sale outlets of the specialized retail trade caused sales of the industry to collapse in the first half of 2020. Sales of German manufacturers employing at least 50 workers fell from 1.62 to 1.28 billion euros in the first six months of 2020 compared to the same period last year. This is equivalent to a sales drop of roughly one-fifth (-21.0 percent to be more precise). Domestic sales of almost one billion euros were 22.5 percent lower than those recorded in the first half of 2019. International sales fell from 269 to 232 million euros in the first half of 2020 compared to the first half of 2019.

Manfred Junkert Hauptgeschäftsführer Bundesverband der Schuh- und Lederwarenindustrie e. V. • Corona-Pandemie verursacht Umsatzeinbruch von einem Fünftel im ersten Halbjahr 2020 • Rückgänge bei Import und Export • HDS/L fordert keine weiteren Belastungen, um wirtschaftliche Erholung zu ermöglichen Umsatz- und Beschäftigungsentwicklung Die Corona-Pandemie hat den Aufwärtstrend der letzten Jahre in der deutschen Schuhindustrie beendet. Die weltweite Schließung von stationären Verkaufsstellen des Fachhandels hat die Umsätze der Industrie im ersten Halbjahr 2020 einbrechen lassen. Der Umsatz der deutschen Schuhhersteller mit 50 oder mehr Beschäftigten ist in den ersten sechs Monaten von 2020 im Vergleich zum Vorjahreszeitraum von 1,62 auf 1,28 Milliarden Euro gesunken. Dies bedeutet einen Rückgang der Verkaufserlöse um ca. ein Fünftel (-21,0 Prozent). Mit knapp einer Milliarde Euro lag der Inlandsumsatz um 22,5 Prozent unter dem Inlandsumsatz des ersten Halbjahres 2019. Der Auslandsumsatz verringerte sich im ersten Halbjahr 2020 im Vergleich zum ersten Halbjahr 2019 von 269 auf 232 Millionen Euro. Die deutschen Schuhhersteller halten die Beschäftigung bisher dennoch stabil. Von Januar bis Juni 2020 beschäftigte die Branche im Monatsdurchschnitt 15.587 Mitarbeiter. Dies entspricht im Vergleich zum Vorjahreszeitraum einem Anstieg von 0,7 Prozent. Dazu hat sicherlich wesentlich die von der Bundesregierung erweiterte Möglichkeit der Kurzarbeit beigetragen.
