The need for mobility products and services is rising faster than ever before as a sizeable portion of the world’s population ages. Many of the older consumers in developed countries, who were born during the baby boom, have considerable earnings at their disposal and are at ease using technologically advanced products to simplify their everyday chores. Electric wheelchairs, being one such product, are witnessing a spike in demand in countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, China, South Korea, and Japan.
However, for some consumers, the high price tag of electric wheelchairs could lead to the postponement or cancellation of a purchase decision. Thus, bringing feature-rich yet competitively priced electric wheelchairs is a strategy that will pay off well for companies in the global electric wheelchair market. At the same time, many consumers can afford advanced mobility products but aren’t aware about the presence of such products on the market and the means to procure them. This lack of awareness could translate to lost opportunities for companies in the electric wheelchair market.
The report divides the electric wheelchair market into sub-markets based on the following criteria: type and geography. By type, the market has been segmented into front wheel drive, rear wheel drive, center wheel drive electric wheelchairs, and standing electric wheelchair. The findings of the report indicate that center wheel drive electric wheelchairs contributed the highest percentage to the market’s revenue. This segment held a share of over 50% in the market in 2013.
