Market Overview:

The global stretch socks market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing prevalence of lifestyle diseases, rising geriatric population, and growing demand for preventive healthcare measures. In addition, the increasing awareness about the benefits of using stretch socks is also contributing to the growth of this market. Based on type, gradient socks are expected to account for a larger share of the global stretch socks market than anti-embolism socks during the forecast period. This can be attributed to their ability to improve blood circulation and prevent venous disorders such as varicose veins and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Based on application, ambulatory patients are expected to account for a larger share of the global stretch socks market than post-operative patients during the forecast period.

Global Stretch Socks Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Stretch socks are a type of sock that have been designed to be more flexible and comfortable than traditional socks. They are made from a stretchy material that allows them to fit snugly on your feet without constricting them. This makes them ideal for activities like running or cycling, where you need to be able to move your feet easily. Stretch socks can also help prevent blisters by providing a cushioning layer between your skin and the shoe.

Gradient Socks:

Gradient Socks are used in the textile industry to enhance the stretchability of fabrics.

The image above represents three types of gradient socks; each with its own unique pattern. As can be seen from this example, it is easier to create vertical rather than horizontal gradients.

Anti-Embolism Socks:

Anti-Embolism socks are used to prevent blood from clotting and helps in the reduction of leg pain, swelling, and inflammation. Anti-Embolism stretch socks have been designed to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) by improving venous return. DVT is a medical condition wherein blood clots form in the veins due to prolonged immobility or standing still for long durations.

Application Insights:

The ambulatory patients segment held the largest share of more than 60.0% in 2017. The growing number of hospitals and surgeries has led to an increased number of ambulatory patients, thereby supporting the growth of this market. According to a study published by NCBI, it is estimated that around 40-50% of people visiting doctors¢â‚¬â„¢ offices or clinics are diagnosed through home healthcare testing procedures such as blood tests and urine analysis conducted at their own homes without any formal medical training or health knowledge. This factor is projected to fuel the demand for stretch socks over the forecast period.

The post-operative patients segment is expected to expand at a CAGR exceeding 7% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing cases relatedto foot problems after surgery especially among women population aged between 15.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing healthcare expenditure, rising awareness about blood clots and deep vein thrombosis, and supportive government initiatives for improving patient care standards in hospitals & critical care settings.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to factors such as growing geriatric population base with high risk of developing Pulmonary Embolism (PE), increasing number of surgeries due to urbanization & modernization, rise in air travel for business and leisure purposes, etc., which are driving demand from ambulatory patients as well as post-operative patients segment. Moreover, rapidly improving healthcare infrastructure coupled with economic development will also help boost demand across this region over the next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing geriatric population: The global stretch socks market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period, owing to the increasing geriatric population. This is because as people age, their feet tend to swell and they are more susceptible to developing foot problems such as swelling, corns, calluses, and bunions.
  • Rising awareness about foot health: There has been an increase in the awareness about foot health in recent years due to which people are inclining towards using stretch socks for better blood circulation and preventing various foot problems.
  • Technological advancements: The introduction of technologically advanced stretch socks such as those with compression technology is expected to fuel the growth of this market during the forecast period. These socks offer various benefits such as improved blood circulation and reduced muscle fatigue and pain post-exercise or long hours of work/traveling etc., thereby driving their demand among consumers worldwide.
