The Global Electric Wheelchair Market is valued at USD 2.16 Billion in the year 2022 and is forecasted to reach a value of USD 3.96 Billion by the year 2030. The Global Market is anticipated to grow to exhibit a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.80% over the forecast period.
An Electric Wheelchair, often known as a powered wheelchair, is a form of transportation for those unable to walk. Electrical power sources, such as sealed lead-acid (SLA) batteries, move it forward. Under the seat is a power base that stores the wheels, motors, brakes, batteries, and wire harnesses. Gel-filled headrests, backrests, cushions, molded foam, and air-filled bladders are included. Electric Wheelchairs are often controlled by joysticks or switches that allow users to control movement and acceleration. One of the primary factors driving market expansion is the rising frequency of neurological illnesses, which coincides with the growing geriatric population, which is more vulnerable to orthopedic ailments. Furthermore, Electric Wheelchairs make it easier for people to go around uneven terrain, soft terrain, grass, and gravel.
Electric Wheelchair Market Size, 2022 To 2030 (USD Billion)
Compared to their traditional equivalents, they also help with pressure relief, posture management, and dependency reduction. In addition, the introduction of Electric Wheelchairs that can be controlled by voluntary motions such as head and tongue movement, breath actuation, and lower extremity control is boosting the market growth. However, the rise in disabilities due to an aging population and the prevalence of chronic diseases is expected to continue to be a significant driving factor for the market studied, encouraging hospitals and healthcare facilities to use Electric Wheelchairs to improve the welfare of patients and healthcare workers. In addition, Electric Wheelchairs are employed in-home care settings to safely and comfortably transfer patients from one location to another. As a result of the extraordinary increase in the geriatric population, demand for Electric Wheelchairs is predicted to rise in hospitals and aged care facilities.
