Dublin, Sept. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Diabetic Socks Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Product (Ankle Length, Calf Length, Knee Length), by Distribution Channel (Hypermarkets, E-commerce), by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2020 - 2027" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global diabetic socks market size is anticipated to reach USD 303.2 million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2020 to 2027.

The rising prevalence of diabetes worldwide is expected to fuel market growth. According to a report by the International Diabetic Federation, the number of diabetic cases is expected to increase by 25% from 463 million in 2019 to 578 million in 2030. Additionally, countries in South East Asia and the Middle East are expected to witness close to 74% and 96% increase, respectively, in the number of cases by 2045. Increasing cases of diabetes will complement the growth of the market in the coming years.

One of the market drivers is the growing need for non-invasive methodologies. Growing awareness of self-care treatments pertaining to supporting footwear, along with technical advances such as gel padding and the launch of smart socks with fiber-optic sensors, is presenting new growth opportunities for the market. For example, in June 2019, Protect iT, a Swiss brand, launched a therapeutic line and a comfort line of diabetic socks with padded layers to deliver protection to the sensitive and sore-prone areas of the feet for people with diabetes.

By product type, the calf-length socks segment held the largest share of 68.3% in 2019. The growth is attributed to an increase in recommendations by doctors and medical councilors of calf-length socks to diabetic neuropathy patients. These socks help to avoid infection in the feet and any potential damage to their circulatory and nervous systems caused by high blood sugar levels

E-commerce is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing channel in the coming years. Online searches for diabetic socks have increased steadily, particularly in the United States, Canada, the U.K., and Australia. This bodes well for manufacturers and brands planning to set up e-commerce sites to sell products wholesale or retail or is setting up shop with one of the top auction or on-line retail sites, such as eBay, uBid, and Bidz.com. These sites already generate a large amount of traffic, which increases product visibility, thereby enhancing sales of these products through online sales channels.
