High levels of sugar in the blood can lead to poor circulation. This leads to a number of problems such as neuropathy, which is a condition that leads to the loss of sensation in the feet. In such cases, a cut or injury may go unnoticed and lead to infections. Diabetic patients wear special footwear to protect themselves from neuropathy and other issues such as bunions, corns, gangrene, and others. High blood sugar and its consequent effects can make regular shoes uncomfortable for diabetic patients. Diabetic footwear is made for a range of purposes such as healing and comfort and can also be customized to suit the needs of patients.

A rise in disposable income and changes in lifestyles are expected to be the key drivers of the global diabetic footwear market during the forecast period. Changes in lifestyle are leading to health problems in a majority of the population. This is owing to deteriorating dietary and exercise habits. As a result, more people are developing high blood sugar or diabetes. The occurrence of diabetes was hitherto restricted to the elderly population, but it is now a common occurrence even among the youth. This leads to an increase in the potential customer base for manufacturers in the global diabetic footwear market. Additionally, as incomes across the world increase, people are able to make better choices for their health and wellness, thus contributing to the growth of the global diabetic footwear market. However, diabetic footwear is a specialty medical product that many consumers may not be aware of. This factor is estimated to restrain the global diabetic footwear market during the forecast period.

The global diabetic footwear market can be segmented based on footwear, end-user, patient, distribution channel, and region. Based on footwear, the global diabetic footwear market can be classified into sandals, shoes, and slippers. In terms of end-user, the global diabetic footwear market can be divided into men and women. Based on patient, the global diabetic footwear market can be bifurcated into outpatient and inpatient. In terms of distribution channel, the diabetic footwear market can be bifurcated into offline distribution channel and online distribution channel. The offline channel segment can be further sub-segmented into hypermarkets/supermarkets, footwear stores, departmental stores, and specialty stores.

In terms of region, the global diabetic footwear market can be segmented into North America (NA), Europe (EU), Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America (SA). North America includes the U.S., Canada, and Rest of North America. The diabetic footwear market in Europe includes markets across the U.K., Germany, France, and Rest of Europe. Similarly, Asia Pacific includes India, China, Japan, and the Rest of Asia Pacific. Middle East & Africa includes analysis and forecast of the diabetic footwear market in GCC countries, South Africa, and Rest of Middle East & Africa. The diabetic footwear market in South America is segmented into Brazil, Mexico, and Rest of South America. North America accounted for a major market share of the diabetic footwear. However, the diabetic footwear market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at a rapid growth rate during the forecast period. This is mainly due to a rise in the population, increase in disposable income, increase in the aging population, and rise in awareness and responsiveness about diabetes and its control on foot health.

Key players operating in the global diabetic footwear market include Apexfoot.com, DJO Global, Dr. Zen, Inc., Drew Shoe Corporation, Finn Comfort, I-Runner, OrthoFeet, Inc., Pilgrim Shoes, Podartis srl, Propét USA, Inc., Hanger Clinic, Tony Martin Limb and Brace, LLC, and Sure Fit Home Products, LLC..
