With the industrial transformation, the insole processing industry is facing opportunities and challenges; from the previous small workshop processing to large-scale production; this is the trend of the overall evolution of the industry. In the past, the shoe material processing industry was mainly based on the mode of matching shoe factories, and gradually changed to the nature of functional insoles; this is the transformation of the production mode of insole suppliers
and the major direction of consumption transformation.
The elimination of backward industries is very obvious in the Pearl River Delta; when textile insoles are still being produced in the north, the footwear industry in the Pearl River Delta, led by Dongguan, has begun to transform. Sponge insoles, latex insoles and silicone insoles have been developed one after another. Major insole suppliers from the traditional insole shape to enter into the diversified, semi-cushion, seven-point cushion, heel sticker, waist sticker and other diversified forms.
From the traditional insole attributes to transform into richer functional insoles. Such as: heightened insoles, antistatic insoles, deodorizing insoles, shock absorber insoles and so on. At present, this transformation is still accelerating. In the wholesale market of insoles, various kinds of commercial insoles have been found everywhere in the major insole suppliers.
From the above, we can see that the insole first changes from the material to the upgrade of production technology, then to the development of diversification, and finally to the transformation of consumption patterns. This pattern has become a major direction to dominate the market.
