Drivers

  • Increasing number of patients with diseases

The market for smart wheelchairs is expected to grow during the forecast period of 2022–2029 due to factors including the rising number of patients with neurological disorders, rising demand for automated medical devices, an increase in the global geriatric population, and rising levels of disposable income. On the other hand, increasing applications from developing nations and rising demand for advanced electric wheelchairs from the sports industry will both create new chances for the growth of the smart wheelchair market throughout the forecast period.

  • Increasing popularity of home healthcare

In addition, the rise in the incidence of people with physical impairments, the growing popularity of home healthcare, and overall development in the number of road traffic accidents leading to limited mobility are some of the major factors driving the demand for smart wheelchairs globally.
