Hosiery witnessed growth in both retail volume and current value terms during 2021, due to stability in the number of COVID-19 cases, and as consumers therefore started to go out to work and socialise again, and children started back at schools and joined in other activities. Hence, hosiery benefited from the resumption of occasions and events outside the home.
Non-sheer hosiery contains natural fibres (cotton, silk, cashmere) or acrylic as the main component, and is more comfortable in hot and humid weather than sheer hosiery. As such, non-sheer hosiery accounts for the largest share of sales in the category, with more than six times the current value sales of sheer hosiery in 2021.
Landmark Group continued to lead hosiery in 2021, as its Splash and Max brands provide value for money hosiery which is popular amongst the low- and middle-income groups in the country. The company also continues to benefit from its numerous stores in every well-known neighbourhood and shopping centre across the United Arab Emirates.
Hosiery will continue to be a wardrobe staple over the forecast period. Hosiery such as socks and tights typically accompany formalwear such as suits for men and dresses for women.
Retailers selling hosiery are expected to continue providing a greater product variety at competitive prices through offline and online channels. Retailers will need to offer attractive deals to appeal to consumers and increase sales, for staples that are often hidden.
Casual and sports-inspired fashions are expected to continue supporting sales of hosiery during the forecast period. The category is popular across all age groups and genders, and will see increased demand through the growing health and wellness trend, which is encouraging consumers to participate in sports and other active pursuits.
