Secondly, upgrading, restructuring and transferring will be the trend for China shoes industry. Shoes industry in China will be more competitive after its transformation & structural adjustment. Besides, with the population of 1.3 billion, China herself is a huge potential market. According to the statistics of "CONSUMPTION DAILY", only 1.7 pairs of shoes are consumed per person in average in China every year, while it's 7.8 pairs for Europe and 8.7 pairs for U.S. The shoes companies in China should try their best to explore & develop domestic market for its great potential.
