Electric wheelchair helps to safely and comfortably transfer patients from one location to another. Thus, increase in number of accidents is expected to boost the growth of electrical wheelchair market demand in the near future.
However, some of the restraints in the market are excessive cost of electric wheelchair and lack of awareness and infrastructure. Electric wheelchair is costly due to the use of specialized and automated controls. The need to use high-quality materials for manufacturing the final product incurs additional cost, which limit the adoption of the equipment. Furthermore, the procurement of these equipment by consumers and healthcare facilities and other institutions is hampered by factors such as budgetary restrictions, low disposable income, and unavailability of funding from government agencies. Thus, high initial costs of electric wheelchair acts as a key restraint of the global electric wheelchair market.
