Drivers and Restraints:

Emerging Socks Brands with Increasing Retail Stores to Positively Affect Market Growth

Numerous brands, such as Champion, Tippitoes, Hanes, Blue Q, and others, are supplying socks to various retailers and shops globally to increase their sales volume. In addition, social media platforms are being extensively utilized to promote brands worldwide and boost demand. Furthermore, socks are available in several colors, varieties, and sizes, designed by new companies. Therefore, the availability of socks in several shops and their widening varieties are expected to drive the growth of this market.

The soaring popularity of slippers, sandals, and flip-flops instead of shoes, which necessitate the use of socks, is expected to hamper the market growth. Additionally, socks made from cheap quality materials cause skin rashes, irritation, and redness, which may also restrain the market’s growth.

Regional Insights:

Presence of Numerous Sock Brands to Aid Asia Pacific to Lead the Market

The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to dominate the socks market share due to the presence of several brands in the region, such as Tosside, Asics Corporation, Jockey, and others. In addition, countries such as India and China are the leading producers of footwear in the region and are thus well-poised to drive the market’s growth.

Owing to North America's substantial import of footwear products from the Asia Pacific region, the market is anticipated to grow. The amount of imports from countries in Asia Pacific is expected to significantly escalate in the coming years, attracting growth in the region.

COVID-19 Impact

Consumer awareness about the benefits associated with exercise and body fitness has led to the rising demand for socks. During the pandemic, the number of consumers aiming at leading a healthy lifestyle has surged. In addition, the increasing spending ability of people has complemented the sales of sports and gym socks. However, the current state of the socks market growth is quite unpredictable due to the new strain of the COVID-19 virus.
