The global electric wheelchair market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Also known as a motorized wheelchair, an electric wheelchair is a means of locomotion for non-ambulatory individuals. It is propelled by electrical power sources, such as sealed lead-acid (SLA) batteries. It has a power base that houses the wheels, motors, brakes, batteries and wiring harnesses underneath the seat. It also comprises headrests, backrests and cushions made of gels, contoured foam and air-filled bladders. An electric wheelchair is generally operated using joysticks or switches that allow users to control the movement and acceleration.
The increasing prevalence of neurological disorders, in confluence with the growing geriatric population, which is more susceptible to orthopedic conditions, represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. Moreover, electric wheelchairs help individuals to move around comfortably and smoothly on rough ground, soft terrain, grass and gravel. They also aid in relieving pressure, managing posture and reducing dependency as compared to their conventional counterparts. Furthermore, the introduction of electric wheelchairs that can be controlled using voluntary movements, such as head and tongue movement, breath actuation and lower extremity control, is positively influencing the market growth. Apart from this, the rising participation in Paralympic sports and the availability of favorable reimbursement policies and customization options are also contributing to the market growth. Besides this, on account of the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the rising hospitalization of individuals, there is a rise in demand for electric wheelchairs around the world. However, logistics constraints are currently restricting the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global electric wheelchair market to grow at a CAGR of around 8% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
