Many people with chronic conditions or people with physical disabilities are not able to follow the guidelines and procedures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. For example, complete isolation may not be possible for a person with a disability because you need help from home helpers or caregivers. If the outbreak becomes more severe in the area, those services may be disrupted as the attendants become ill themselves. Some may not have access to affordable travel and may have to rely on mobility devices to continue receiving medications or making purchases.

The pandemic has a devastating effect on the market as the epidemic has disrupted, and can continue to disrupt the performance of the major manufacturers and can have a devastating effect on business, financials of the market, including the ability of end-users to gain access to products.

The major factor contributing to the growth of the market is the growing number of disability cases, due to the rising elderly population, increasing number of road accidents, spinal cord injuries, and meningitis are the important factors likely to boost the growth of the global personal mobility devices market.

According to the revised World Population Prospects by the United Nations, the number of people aged 60 years or above is expected to grow more than double by 2050, from 962 million in 2015 to 2.1 billion by 2050, worldwide. This age group is at high risk for various age-related illnesses, which require the help of personal mobility. According to Disabled World, currently, about 10% of the world’s population, or nearly 650 million people, are living with a disability. In most OECD countries, females have higher rates of disability than males, and according to the UN Development Program (UNDP), 80% of persons with disabilities live in developing countries.

Continuous evolution and advancement in wheelchairs have taken place for centuries. Wheelchairs have more robust wheel design and movement capabilities, and the following models continuously shift toward weight reduction and increased maneuverability and performance. From there, electric wheelchairs have seen advancement in design, maneuverability, reliability, and comfort. In recent years, there has been a progressive approach to technological adaptations led by the private sector that has enabled the exploration and design of ’hi-tech’ assistive devices. There are many companies that offer advanced technological wheelchairs. For example, Invacare Corporation offers power wheelchairs (Storm Series, TDX Series, etc.) starting from USD 5,970.

Furthermore, growing research and development programs to solve the issues and for product development by the key players propel the growth of the market. In November 2019, Arjo acquired substantial equity in Atlas Lift Tech, which is involved in the deployment and management of comprehensive mobility programs through its innovative Lift Coach Model and Mobility Tracking Software Platform.
