Footrest Market

Footrest Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2019 - 2027

Global Footrest Market – Introduction

A footrest is a furniture element that supports the human body and helps maintain required posture; it helps in elevating the hips over knees, and takes off pressure from the lower back. Usage of a footrest also helps in improving blood flow in the body, which mitigates the risk of circulatory issues such as edema.

People spending long hours doing desk jobs or traveling being seated are the target clientele of the market. In the near future, the number of these people is anticipated to rise, resulting in increased demand for ergonomic footrests.

Footrest Market – Dynamics

Ability of footrests to enhance productivity at work, key factor driving the market

Improper or misbalanced support to the legs and feet might harm the blood circulation and because of this, most working places are investing in footrests to complement the ergonomic chair. Earlier, footrests were mostly sold to the residential sector. However, commercial spaces are now significantly driving the footrest market.

Lack of awareness regarding the health benefits of footrests

The market might face challenges in emerging regions such as the Middle East and some parts of Asia Pacific owing to lack of awareness among consumers. These regions are also culturally stringent, which sometimes makes it difficult for such markets to gain substantial penetration. However, rising urbanization and transforming consumer behavior is expected to enable the market overcome this hurdle in the coming years.
