Socks are a pair of knitted or woven covering worn to prevent rubbing of shoes on the bare feet. They are made using a variety of materials, such as cotton, wool, nylon, acrylic, polyester, olefins, spandex, silk, bamboo, linen, cashmere, and mohair, which are used based on different requirements and weather conditions. For instance, thermal socks made from wool are used in cold environments to keep the foot warm and prevent frostbite. Apart from this, diabetic socks manufactured using unique yarns help alleviate symptoms associated with diabetes, such as reducing rough abrasion and shear forces on the skin.
A significant rise in the number of working professionals, along with the increasing adoption of the formal business environment, represents one of the major factors influencing the market globally. Moreover, the growing number of individuals opting for sports as their career option is catalyzing the demand for compression socks. Compression socks are usually worn during sports activities to increase oxygen delivery and blood flow and reduce jarring, vibration, and stress to the muscles, thereby improving the endurance and performance of athletes. Apart from this, the rising prevalence of diabetes, in confluence with the increasing awareness about the impact of diabetes on the feet of the patients, is also contributing to the market growth. Additionally, as diabetic socks enhance blood circulation, keep the feet warm and dry, and prevent the risk of foot injuries, they are gaining traction over regular socks around the world. Furthermore, the key market players are offering customized socks via online channels. They are also launching modern products that track infants' temperature, movement, and location, which is anticipated to drive the market.
