Diabetic Footwear Market by Distribution Channel (Online Platforms, Specialty Stores, Footwear Stores, and Others), End User (Men and Women), and Footwear (Shoe, Sandal, and Slipper): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023

The global diabetic footwear market size is expected to reach $8,148 million in 2023 from $4,994 million in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 7.6% from 2017 to 2023.Diabetic footwear, also known as extra depth shoes and therapeutic shoes, aim to improve & maintain the foot health of patients suffering from diabetes, who are diagnosed with foot deformities. These shoes help the patients to reduce the damage caused by skin breakdown. Diabetic footwear is designed to prevent foot injuries from frequent mobility with the help of a removable shoe insert and insole, which are made up of stretchable material for adjustability and customization.

The growth of diabetic footwear market is influenced by the rise in prevalence of diabetes, which results in increased expenditure toward the diabetes treatment, growth in population in the developing countries, and the increase in per capita income of individuals. However, lack of knowledge in terms of use of diabetic footwear and counselling for proper foot care is expected to restrain the growth of the global diabetes footwear market share.

The diabetic footwear market is segmented on the basis of type of distribution channel, end user, footwear, and geography. Based on distribution channel, it is classified into online platforms, specialty stores, footwear stores, and others.

Based on end user, it is bifurcated into women and men. Online platform is expected to gain increased market share, owing to the increase in penetration in terms of internet & smartphones and the growth of the e-commerce industry. Based on footwear, the market is divided into shoes, sandals, and slippers.
