[322 Pages Report] The smart wheelchair market is subject to changes owing to the factors influencing the market such as the increasing prevalence of neurological disorders, rising awareness and demand for automated medical devices, increasing burden of the geriatric population globally, and the growing levels of disposable income of the target population.

According to the latest study conducted by Future Market Insights, the smart wheelchair market will be projected to be valued at US$ 162.6 Mn by the end of 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR growth of 7.8% over the forecast period (2022-2032)

Although the independent movement is crucial, some wheelchair users find it difficult or impossible to operate conventional manual or motorised wheelchairs. Multiple overlapping physical, cognitive, or perceptual symptoms of diseases such as cerebral palsy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, cerebrovascular accident, multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injury can make it difficult to use a wheelchair safely and independently. Varied forms of assistance from a smart wheelchair and different wheelchair form elements can benefit people with various symptom combinations.

The COVID-19 pandemic had unprecedented effects on the world’s economy, along with sending the healthcare sector into a hyper drive. COVID-19 pandemic negatively influenced the smart wheelchair market during the peak of the pandemic in 2020, due to the shortage of supply of raw materials and other supply chain crises. However, the partial normalization of the world in 2021 opened up a foray of growth opportunities for the key players in this industry.

There are services in hospital settings where external consultations, tests, analyses, and procedures are conducted involving patient displacement. This is particularly important for those with balance and mobility issues caused by disability, pain, fractures, or abnormalities in the lower limbs. Patients are currently transported to hospitals by patient transporters. It could often be done in a wheelchair, which would be more beneficial, owing to its autonomy. As a result, delays and failures owing to a shortage of staff to carry out the transfer would be avoided.

Technological advancements are also shaping the growth of the smart wheelchairs industry for over a decade.

  • For instance, In November 2021, Sunrise Medical LLC. announced the launch of its new ZIPPIE® Sphynx™ an on the go, compact, easily transportable wheelchair that can fit within a compact car’s trunk according to the clients’ needs. The market is consolidated with a few key players dominating the industry.
