The increasing emphasis on personalized 3D-printed footwear is one of the major reasons for the 3D-printed footwear market growth. Vendors operating in the market follow various strategies to increase their sales. One such strategy is offering customized and personalized models of 3D-printed footwear. Some students from various universities are also focusing on developing customizable 3D-printed shoes. For instance, in April 2017, design students from the Academy of Fine Arts, Warsaw, Poland, designed customizable 3D-printed shoes, which were made of eco-friendly materials. Therefore, the rising demand for customized 3D-printed footwear will increase the sale of such models and drive the growth of the market. Many footwear vendors are collaborating with 3D printing technology providers to develop footwear. 3D printing technology helps vendors reduce the time required from the conceptualizing of a new design to its reaching store shelves, by one-third.
