According to 6Wresearch, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Kids Footwear Market size and market volume are projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% and 3.3% respectively during 2023–29. UAE kids footwear market is expected to show decent growth in the coming years owing to the growing awareness of the importance of physical fitness and healthy lifestyles along with the rising spending of tourists in the country. Additionally, the government's Tourism Strategy 2031 under its Vision 2030 aims to bring 40 million tourists by 2031 which is expected to boost shopping activities, including the purchase of kids' footwear. Moreover, the rising e-commerce sector and increasing social media penetration are driving the demand for premium and custom-made footwear for kids in the UAE. The strict guidelines in the country that require children to adhere to a dress code in schools would contribute to the growth of the kid's footwear market. The declining birth rate of the country would decrease the children population in the coming years which would reduce the number of potential customers of kids' footwear.
According to Ravi Bhandari, Research Head, 6Wresearch, the boys segment by end users dominated the market. However, in recent years, there has been a growing trend towards gender-neutral or unisex footwear, particularly in the kids footwear market would increase the unisex footwear revenue share in the coming years.
