A wheelchair is considered appropriate if it: satisfies the user’s demands and environmental requirements; offers a proper fit with ergonomic adjustment; is safe and reliable; is readily available in the nation; and can be obtained, maintained, and provided with services in the nation at a reasonable price. The usage of a appropriate wheelchair improves users’ mobility and flexibility, which is a requirement for active involvement in civic, professional, and educational activities.

Wheelchairs are among the most widely used assistive devices. Those who require wheelchairs have mobility limits and may include individuals with congenital abnormality, people with developmental and neurological problems (such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy), people with a spinal cord injury, and people with musculoskeletal conditions (lower limb amputation), people living with physical handicap caused by polio or non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes or stroke, and older people.

The wheelchair market is expected to grow as demand is created and consolidated around the best products in terms of effectiveness, features, quality, and cost. Additionally, to lower production costs and promote the adoption of strict quality standards, manufacturers and suppliers must collaborate to shape the Global Wheelchairs Industry for greater revenue sales.

Key Takeaways from Global Wheelchairs Industry Study

  • Manual wheelchairs are the leading segment as a product, and hold approximately 5% market share in 2021, owing to their adoption by people with mobility issues, who do not suffer from chronic conditions.
  • The lightweight wheelchair segment is set to lead in terms of function for wheelchairs with a projected market share of around 0% by 2032, owing to the ease of its use.
  • Institutional sales accounted for around 2% of the Global Wheelchairs Industry, by distribution channel, in 2021, owing to the high adoption of treatment within institutional settings.
  • North America is considered as the leading region with a global share of 4% in 2021, owed to the large number of available distributors for wheelchairs in the region.

“Mobility issues associated with ageing are likely to affect older generations, which is predicted to raise demand for wheelchairs and fuel market expansion for wheelchairs over the forecast period,” says an analyst of Future Market Insights.
