Rising Geriatric Population Worldwide to Boost Growth
The number of aging population is increasing rapidly across the world. In January 2018, WHO stated in a study that the number of people between the age group of 60 years and older is anticipated to outnumber children younger than 5 years by 2020. In addition to that, the proportion of the world’s population above 60 years will double from 12% to 22% between 2015 and 2050. It proves that the aging populaces are likely to be affected the most by mobility disorders. This, in turn, would propel the wheelchairs market growth during the forecast period.

North America to Dominate Stoked by Presence of Key Manufacturers
In terms of region, the market is fragmented into Latin America, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa. Out of these, North America is set to lead the market in the coming years. The region acquired USD 1.98 billion wheelchairs market revenue in 2018. This growth is attributable to the upsurging geriatric population, as well as the rising number of people affected by various mobility impairment disorders. Besides, in the U.S., several pre-existing major mobility devices manufacturers are expected to contribute to the market growth.

Asia Pacific, on the other hand, would experience a speedy growth owing to the increasing cases of accidental injuries. Combined with this, the surging incidence of developmental disabilities in children would also augment growth in this region. As per the ‘World Population Ageing 2017’ report by the United Nations (UN), the number of people above the age of 60 years in this region, is estimated to upsurge to nearly 1.3 billion in 2050 from 549 million in 2017. It would also affect the market positively in Asia Pacific.
