Newark, DE (PRUnderground) April 24th, 2023

The global wheelchairs market was worth US$ 5.7 Billion in the year 2022 and is expected to reach ~US$ 7.9 Billion by the year 2032 at a CAGR of 3.2% between 2022 and 2032.

Wheelchairs imply medical devices designed for providing mobility amongst people with either no ambulatory or limited ability, that too, without assistance. Initially, manually-operated wheelchairs were prevalent. However, in the modern context, automation has entered the arena of wheelchairs. The WHO states that the year 2018 saw close to 15% of the global population contracting disability in various forms. Automated wheelchairs are likely to create wonders in the forecast period.

The geriatric population suffers from mobility disorders. With the United Nations stating that nearly 250 Million of the global population witnessing problems with mobility, wheelchairs are a boon.

Additionally, spinal cord injuries are rampant among the ageing population. Growing technological innovations are already keeping the cash registers ringing for the wheelchairs market.

At the same time, the fact that the production of a localized active wheelchair at lower prices in high-income countries is on the rise can’t be ignored. This results in non-uniformity regarding imports and exports, thereby restraining the wheelchairs market. The other factor is the higher price of electric wheelchairs.

Future Market Insights has etched these findings with insights in its latest market study entitled ‘Wheelchairs Market’. It has a team of analysts and consultants to conduct 360-degree research on the whole.

“With increasing incidences of spinal cord injuries, the global wheelchairs market is expected to grow on a good note in the near future”, says an analyst from Future Market Insights.

The pods could operate at a higher speed of 24 mph.
  • The Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate in the wheelchairs market going forward with China and India witnessing enhancements in the healthcare vertical. It’s a fact that the majority of low-cost wheelchairs are assembled in China.
