Wheelchair Market: Growth, Opportunities, Key Players & Forecast Outlook 2027

Market Highlights:

The Global Wheelchair Market Is Expected to Register A CAGR Of 6.48% During The Forecast Period And Is Expected To Hit USD 6,022.84 Million By 2027.

A wheelchair is used to transport individuals who are unable to walk due to diseases, illnesses, or disabilities. Wheelchairs are primarily used by the differently-a bled and geriatric population worldwide. Electric wheelchairs are especially used by elderly and disabled people, as they have difficulties in operating a manual wheelchair effectively. Manual wheelchairs are light-weight and require less maintenance compared to electric wheelchairs.

The rising geriatric population and increasing use of wheelchairs in fields such as athletics are anticipated to drive the market growth of the global Wheelchair Market. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the world population above 60 years will almost double from 12% to 22% by 2050. This increase in the geriatric population will ultimately result in an increased demand for wheelchairs. However, the cost of electric-powered wheelchairs is high as compared to their manual counterparts, which is expected to restrict the market growth.
