Global Electric Wheelchair Market Size

The global electric wheelchair market is projected to grow from USD 3.2 billion in 2022 to USD 5.4 billion by 2027 at a CAGR value of 8.5% from 2022 to 2027.

In the United States, one-third of elderly adults have mobility issues. They are the fastest growing and largest cohort of power wheelchair users, which is unsurprising. Power wheelchair use has been linked to increased mobility, community interactions, and quality of life, as well as reduced pain and discomfort, according to quantitative studies. The growing elderly population and the rising frequency of neurological illnesses, which make people more sensitive to orthopedic issues, are driving the electric wheelchair market forward throughout the forecast period.

The rising advancements in technology and IoT with smart voice assistance and more additional new features along with the rise in investment by many firms in product enhancement and up-gradation in technology development are propelling the market growth. Furthermore, increased supply for wheelchairs, increasing consumer awareness, and favourable government initiatives are expected to enhance the market in the coming years. The electric wheelchair market will benefit from an increased technological improvement in wheelchair layouts and manufacturing.

The growing popularity of paralympic sports, as well as the availability of favourable reimbursement procedures and customization choices, are all contributing to market expansion. Aside from that, due to the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and an increase in the number of people being admitted to hospitals, there is an increase in demand for electric wheelchairs all over the world.

In the light of COVID-19, the global electric wheelchair market saw an exponential rise as emergency treatment machines and electric wheelchairs were in high demand because they allowed covid patients to move despite their severe physical limitations. Many institutions, laboratories, and clinics were inundated with covid-infected patients who were unable to move, necessitating the use of wheelchairs.

Furthermore, the worldwide electric wheelchair market is expected to develop increasing accidents. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), between 20 and 50 million more individuals experience non-fatal injuries every day, with many of them becoming disabled as a result of their accident.

The market's development, however, is limited due to the lack of infrastructure improvements, as well as low purchasing power and client consciousness. Furthermore, caused by a lack of access to high-quality medical institutions and distribution facilities, along with poor quality healthcare services in low-income countries, limits market growth.

Electric Wheelchair Market: By Product Type

Based on the product type, the market is segmented into center wheel drive, front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, standing electric wheelchair, and others. The center wheel drive segment is expected to grow the fastest in the electric wheelchair market from 2022 to 2027. This is attributable to its comparatively tiny turning radius, luminous front tires, ease of manoeuvring through tight spaces, and higher durability.

The center wheel drive segment leads in terms of electric wheelchair market share; even so, the front-wheel-drive segment is expected to gain traction in the coming decades as it diminishes poundage, lowers manufacturing costs, and enhances fuel economy.

Electric Wheelchair Market: By Type

Adult wheelchairs and paediatric wheelchairs are the segmentation based on the type. The adult segment is expected to hold a larger share as compared to another segment. This is due to an increase in the world's aging population. At the same time, the need for wheelchairs grows more as elderly persons become disabled owing to osteoarthritis pain or stiffness in their knees, hips, ankles, or feet. They are often used as assistive gadgets to improve mobility and quality of life for those who have difficulty walking and performing daily tasks.

Electric Wheelchair Market: By Region

As per the geographical analysis, the electric wheelchair market can be classified into North America (the United States, Canada, and Mexico), Asia Pacific (India, China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Rest of Asia Pacific), Europe (Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, France, Spain, Netherlands, and Rest of Europe), Middle East & Africa (Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Rest of the Middle East & Africa) and Central & South America (Brazil, Argentina, and Rest of Central and South America).

North America (the United States, Canada, and Mexico) will have a dominant share in the electric wheelchair market from 2022 to 2027. The rising demand for electric wheelchairs among all age groups, investment in IoT and advanced technologies to launch new advanced quality products, and awareness among people are some of the factors causing market growth in this region.

Moreover, the Asia Pacific region is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in the market for electric wheelchair during the forecast period. In Asia Pacific countries, the rising demand for smart wheelchairs among disabled users with mechanical, perceptual, or cognitive decline could be viewed as an opportunity for growth.

Furthermore, a rise in the number of traffic accidents, a rise in the number of individuals with physical abnormalities, and an expansion in the spending power of consumers in Asia Pacific countries are some of the factors driving the market's expansion in this region.
