Aging usually reduces the ability to move and perform physical tasks to maintain independent functioning. The increasing geriatric population is likely to create more demand for active wheelchairs over the forecast period. Moreover, they are more prone to falls, which can cause fatal or non-fatal injuries. The Western Europe region has the highest fall-related incidence and mortality rates in aged people. As per a research article published by Injury Prevention, in 2017, around 11.7 million aged people sought medical attention due to an injury, of which 8.4 million were owing to fall-related injuries. An increasing number of elderly people and rising incidents of falls in the elderly are projected to drive demand for active wheelchairs during the forecast period.
The introduction of technologically advanced active wheelchairs is also expected to drive the market as it provides more comfort to the users. In addition, increasing government initiatives to support the elderly and disabled population is boosting the market. For instance, the U.S. government provides various disability services to its citizens such as insurance for short-term and long-term disability, financial assistance & support services for the disabled, and education & jobs for persons with disabilities. In 2017, the Government of India offered free eldercare assistive devices under RashtriyaVayoshriYojana (RVY) to senior citizens belonging to lower economic strata of the country.
Furthermore, favorable reimbursement policies for the purchase of active wheelchairs, rising incidence of accidents, increasing spending on healthcare infrastructure, and increasing obese population across the globe due to drastic changes in daily lifestyle are also anticipated to propel the growth of the market.
