Socks Market Size, Share, Trends, and Forecast 2022-2027:

The Socks Market is estimated at USD 44.1 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 63.21 billion by 2027, growing at the rate of 5.62 % CAGR.

However, increased smartphone user penetration in these countries has forced sock manufacturers, along with various value-added products, including cash-on-delivery services, to release their consumer variants at reduced prices. The global socks market will also be driven by this in the forecast period.

In addition, increased health and fitness expenditures among adults will lead to demands for various shoe accessories, such as sports socks and knee socks for exercise in gyms and health clubs. In the past few years, a variety of health workers have spent on publishing various papers on healthy foot maintenance as foot disorders associated with diabetic pat are increasing.

A major part of extending the utility of socks is expected to play a growing function in the formal appeal of White-Collar professionals at the global level. In addition, demand growth is expected to increase in the coming years.

In turn, increased health and fitness spending for adults would contribute to the demand for various footwear supplies such as sports socks and ankle socks in gyms and health clubs during workouts. Different health workers have increased over the past few years expenditures on publishing several research papers on healthy foot maintenance as foot disorders in diabetic pat are increasingly occurring.

The consequence is the introduction of advanced diabetic socks by some companies including Dr. Oxyn and Podolite to reduce the risk of foot ulcers, which cause infection or potential amputation. A growing number of companies in emerging economies like China, Bangladesh, India, and Mexico are expected to remain an industry favorable factor as a result of supportive policies to encourage investment at the domestic level.
