Diabetic socks are designed to reduce the risk of foot injury, increase blood flow, and retain the feet dry. The various positive attributes of the product are it is an anti-bacterial, prevents fungal infection, uses a moisture-wicking material, and others. The rising number of people with various types of foot diseases such as diabetic neuropathy, bunions, plantar fasciitis, and others upsurge the consumption of the product. Furthermore, the increasing number of people with prediabetes becoming more cautious and willing to take certain remedies to prevent themselves from getting diabetes help to the increasing demand of the product. For instance, according to the data published by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention on ’National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2020’, there is an estimation of 88 million people of age 18 years and above to have prediabetes which is considered to be 34.5% of the United States population.

The per capita expenditure is larger in wealthier countries, however, PHC takes a greater share of health expenses in low and middle-income countries. Furthermore, the increasing number of innovative smart diabetes socks which comes with the ability to monitor the blood circulation, temperature, health score, and others act as an opportunity for the market growth. For instance, Siren Care is coming up with such smart diabetic socks which not only improves the health of the foot but also comes with features such as ability to monitor the health of a foot, detected injury, and can even be connected to a smartphone without charging.  

However, the lack of awareness of the various health benefits that the product provides to people with diabetes especially among developing and underdeveloped nations is acting as a hampering factor for the market growth.
