The global flip-flops market size was worth USD 17.8 billion in 2018. The market is projected to ascend at a CAGR of 4.2% over the forecast period. The growing demand for the product owing to their low prices and durability is attributing to the growth of the market. Further, they are light in weight and can easily be carried, thus, becoming a convenient footwear alternative.

However, growing environmental concern is likely to be a restraining factor in market growth as consumers are becoming more aware of the harmful effect of these products.

Owing to growing environmental concerns, manufacturers are emphasizing investments in research and development to manufacturing eco-friendly products. In this regard, they are focusing on using materials such as wood, palm leaves, and papyrus. Recently, in 2018, a start-up named Allbirds introduced a new model of sugarcane-made flip-flops. Thus, the introduction of such environment-friendly products is expected to bode well for market growth.
