Increasing prevalence of physical disability is expected to increase demand for mobility solutions such as wheelchairs, which in turn would contribute to growth of the electric wheelchair market. For instance, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2017, there were around 38.2 million adults with physical functioning difficulty and accounted for 15.5% of total global disability. Moreover, increasing number of road accidents resulting in permanent disability, are expected to drive the electrical wheelchair market growth. According to Association for Safe International Road Travel, around 1.25 million people die in road crashes each year globally, of which 20 to 50 million are injured or disabled.
The Global Electric Wheelchair Market was valued at US$ 2,911.5 Mn in 2018, and is expected to witness a CAGR of 17.1% during the forecast period (2018 – 2026).

Increasing number of product launches is expected to drive growth of the Electric Wheelchair Market
Increasing initiatives by key players in development of pediatric powered wheelchairs are expected to show significant growth in the pediatric segment of the electric wheelchair market.
For instance, in January 2015, Sunrise Medical (U.S.) LLC introduced new Zippie ZM-310 pediatric power wheelchair featuring the smallest mid-wheel-drive base. The product was revised and updated as per the ANSI/RESNA standards.
Moreover, in 2014, Invacare Corporation launched a new Invacare Fox electric wheelchair. It is designed to enable adult users to maximize independence in everyday life. Fox electric wheelchair provides considerable maneuverability indoors, and traction outdoors.
However, high cost of electrical wheelchairs and lack of awareness about such products among the lower middle income population may negatively impact the market size. For instance, the price of Heartway P13 Vision power wheelchair developed by EV RIDER LLC is US$ 3,699.00, which is unaffordable for people with average income.
