Electric Wheelchair: Market Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2016 – 2023


Healthcare and medical devices is one of the fastest growing industries across the globe. New devices and equipment are constantly being developed in order to reduce the suffering of patients. One of the most important aspects in treatment of patient is their mobility. Patients having lower limbs disabilities find it highly difficult to mobilize themselves. Conventional wheelchair, also termed as manual wheelchair, has been the sole solution available since several years. However, using manual wheelchair becomes a burdensome task for an individual as it may result in fatigue. Aggregation of all such problems has led to development of self-propelled wheelchair or electric chair, over the period of time.

Electric wheelchair is defined as a self-propelled wheelchair driven using electric motor. These chairs are controlled using an applied control system designed for steering wheelchair. Apart from patients who are unable to mobilize themselves, electric wheelchairs can also be used by individuals having problems such as fatigue, pain impairment or cardio vascular disorders.Some variants of electric wheelchair are also available with enhanced control system for steering patients with hundred percent limb disability. Electric wheelchair also contributes in developing a sense of independence in patients having impairments and hence is increasingly being used across the world.

Electric wheelchair market is largely driven by the ever rising need for comfort as well as mobility of physically impaired people. These chairs act as boon for the patients having permanent limb disability where manual propulsion of wheel chair is not possible. This has significantly boosted the overall electric chair market over the past few years. Market players have emphasis on development of products capable of delivering more comfort and easy mobility to the patients. Subsequently, the overall electric wheelchair market is set to witness substantial growth during the forecast period.
