High Demand for Medical Mobility Aids & Ambulatory Devices
The medical mobility aids & ambulatory devices segment accounted for the largest share of the global personal mobility devices market in 2019. The segment is projected to dominate the global personal mobility devices market from 2020 to 2027, gaining market share by 500 basis points. The medical mobility aids & ambulatory devices segment comprises devices meant primarily for outdoor use, such as wheelchairs, scooters, canes & crutches, and walkers. Additionally, the segment is expected to expand at a higher CAGR in the personal mobility devices market during the forecast period. The segment’s dominance is attributed to the increase in geriatric and disabled populations, driving the demand for mobility devices such as wheelchairs and mobility scooters. However, the high cost of some of these devices is likely to restrain the segment in the developing and underdeveloped countries, in the personal mobility devices market.
Wheelchairs Prominent among Medical Mobility Aids & Ambulatory Devices
The wheelchairs sub-segment dominated the medical mobility aids & ambulatory devices segment, accounting for significant share of the personal mobility devices market in 2019. The global geriatric population is anticipated to increase at a significant pace in the next few years. This is expected to drive the demand for wheelchairs. These chairs are equipped with various other features such as bags and accessories holders. The wheelchairs sub-segment has been classified into manual and electric. Mobility scooters was the second largest sub-segment of the medical mobility aids & ambulatory devices segment. The wheelchairs sub-segment is projected to grow at a faster pace than the mobility scooters sub-segment in the personal mobility devices market during the forecast period. This is attributed to the high cost of mobility scooters as compared to wheelchairs. Additionally, the target population in anticipated to use cars and other transport vehicles for long-distance journeys. This is likely to restrain the usage of mobility scooters.
Medical Beds with a Significant Share in Medical Furniture & Bathroom Safety Products
Medical furniture and bathroom safety products comprise devices such as patient lifts, stair lifts, medical beds, bars & railings, and commodes & shower chairs. The medical beds sub-segment dominated the medical furniture & bathroom safety products segment in the personal mobility devices market in 2019. Medical beds are meant for comfort and well-being of the disabled or chronically ill, and elderly people, as well as for the convenience of their caregivers. Medical beds are equipped with various features such as adjustable height, pillow lifts, chair beds, and rope ladders. Additionally, these beds are integrated with pressure reducing mattresses, lifting poles, reading stands, and bed tables. Medical beds are classified in two types: electric beds and manual beds. Factors such as rise in affordability of patients and increase in the number of hospitals are expected to fuel the growth of the sub-segment in the near future. However, the stair lifts sub-segment is expected to expand at a higher CAGR in the personal mobility devices market during the forecast period. The segment’s dominance is attributed to the increase in the use of stair lift devices, as this is an effective solution for people with mobility restrictions who cannot climb staircases at home.
Asia Pacific to Create High Incremental Opportunity
In terms of revenue, North America is projected to dominate the global personal mobility devices market from 2020 to 2027. This can be ascribed to a large geriatric population in the region requiring mobility aid devices. According to the Population Reference Bureau, the number of people aged above 65 years is likely to more than double from 45 million in 2019 to 98 million by 2060.
The personal mobility devices market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a relatively high CAGR during the forecast period, owing to increasing focus on the development of healthcare infrastructure by public as well as private hospitals, and rise in the demand for affordable care in a significant share of the patient population. Additionally, wide scope of development and rapid urbanization offer significant opportunities to emerging as well as established players in the region. This, in turn, drives the mobility aid devices market in Asia Pacific.
