The global wheelchair market size is expected to reach USD 12.2 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2022-2030. The rising demand for mobility assistance and the geriatric population is expected to drive market growth. As per the Americans with Disabilities Act, a wheelchair is designed mainly for use by an individual with a physical disability. Wheelchairs can be used for both indoor and outdoor purposes. An increase in life span and the number of elderly persons at a global level is one of the key reasons expected to contribute to the growth of the market.
The market is disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic which affected the market due to the restrictions and lockdown imposed by the government as a result, the demand and sale of the product decreases. The demand for a wheelchair is expected to increase due to the rising geriatric population and mobility issues that occurred to the people during the pandemic. Although the number of hospital visits by regular patients had reduced during the lockdown, the number of patients affected with COVID-19 witnessed a spike. With the ease of lockdowns, the manufacturing operation of the mobility device is expected to come back to normal.
The rise in the number of disorders requiring an assistive device is also one of the key factors expected to contribute to market growth. The most common disability that needs a mobility device is spinal cord injuries. As per the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, around 294,000 people currently living with spinal cord injuries, in the U.S. with 17,7300 new cases each year.
