Functional concerns of boots are; protecting the foot from mud, water, pestilence (insect bites, stings, infectious disease or snake bites), harsh temperatures, blunt or sharp objects (work boots may contain steel toes), corrosive agents, physical abrasion or damaging radiation; support to ankle and traction for strenuous activities like as hiking; and durability in extreme conditions like the combat boot’s underside may be reinforced with hobnails.

In some cases, the wearing of boots may be required by regulations or laws; for instance, the rules in some jurisdictions require workers on construction sites to wear special shoes with steel-toed safety boots. Some uniforms include boots as regulated footwear. Boots are recommended for motorcycle riders. High-top athletic shoes are not counted as boots, although they cover the ankle, because of the absence of a distinct heel. In football (soccer), cleats are also known as boots.

Boots demand has been growing due to increasing fashion awareness, fast industrialization, and a rising number of mountaineers and hikers. Change in consumer preference towards fashionable designs results in high product sales and as a result, growth in the boots market. Changing consumer preferences and their adaption of fashion trends, together with the rising knowledge about different brands, have allowed manufacturers to come up with various new and enhanced designs.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 outbreak has been negatively impacted the boots market, as many nations exercised lockdowns to stop the spread of the disease. As a result, the majority of the manufacturing plants and factories were temporarily or permanently shut down, which halted production for many industries. Also, the supply chains were disrupted severely due to trade restrictions. In addition, many government organizations released guidelines and imposed travel bans which resulted in the cancellations or postponement of many sports tournaments and activities. The imposed regulations to stop people from wandering outside unnecessarily also decreased the demand for boots.

Market Growth Factors

Rising urbanization leading to increasing number of brands

The increasing urbanization in emerging countries is a significant element fueling the demand globally for boots. Rapid urbanization has helped designers and manufacturers connect with the audience more precisely and know about their needs and the current fashion trend. There was a surge in demand, especially among college students and working women, as they are believed to be more fashion-centric and carry sophisticated dresses. The rise in the number of working women will also increase the sales of different types of boots.

Safety provided by the boots

One of the critical advantages of boots is their height that enables proper protection for the user's ankles. Generally, this protection is in the form of cushioning and support during an impact. The support is essential as it helps to prevent ankle twisting, which could result in strain or bone breakage. In addition, even on a standard-looking path, a slight pebble can cause an uneven flex of ankles, that can be avoided due to the boot's rigidity which helps prevent ankle injuries.

Market Restraining Factors

Concerned health problems

Every shoe can’t perfectly fit everyone, even if they are wearing the proper size according to the company standards, which forces them to use a boot bigger or shorter than their feet. Using the wrong boot size can worsen pre-existing problems like arthritis. It can affect the back area or can give perpetual pain in the legs. Ill-fitted shoes can cause short-term effects like blisters, the most typical illness caused by a wrong-fitted shoe. The constant friction causes these fluid-filled vesicles of dead skin. Blisters are excruciating and take a couple of weeks to heal and leave a permanent scar and discolored damaged skin.
