India Wheelchair Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Wheelchair Advancement Propels Market Expansion

Continuous updates in wheelchair physiology, combined with technological advancements, provide the wheelchair with the most dependable features for users. With the addition of updated features such as eye sensor controls, functioning controls with AI automation or finger touch controlling, and upgrades in customization such as adding more comfort by cushioning, extra support for posture control, and pressure reliever points, Wheelchairs are becoming a priority or viable option for users or patients. This implies increasing the user's reliance and safety, thereby increasing market demand. Moreover, modern wheelchairs have fewer manual handling controls, fewer attendant requirements, controlled movements, and full or semi-automation.

India's Growing Disability Population drives need for Wheelchairs

The WHO (World Health Organization) says that there is a rise in the ratio of disabled people in India. The government of India's ministry of social justice and empowerment supports the empowerment of individuals with disabilities of all kinds, including hearing, vision, speech, motor, and mental handicaps by giving them access to the appropriate supportive medical equipment and services. As a result, the demand for wheelchairs in India is automatically shifting toward the market as the disability ratio rises. There are also numerous government initiatives in place to give wheelchairs to patients with locomotor impairments. According to a government-observed trend, the government now either distributes wheelchairs or, in many circumstances, funding to patients to purchase the desired.

Rising Investments by Indian Healthcare Companies

Market growth is being driven by increased investments by Indian healthcare companies focusing on the elderly population. In India, rising healthcare investments are expected to boost demand for wheelchairs and components. Many new businesses are investing in-home health care programs to make life easier for the elderly who require assisted living. Care24, for example, is a confirmed start-up healthcare company based in Mumbai that has received US$ 4 million in seed funding from SAIF Partners and India Quotient. It provides hassle-free and high-quality elderly care services at home, in addition to full medical assistance.

Restraints

The Difficulty is the High Cost of Wheelchairs.

Wheelchair affordability is restricted across the country, especially in tier-3 cities and rural areas, due to the high cost of wheelchairs, especially powered ones. In rural areas of the country, even manual wheelchair adoption and use are far lower. This has limited the sales and demand for new wheelchairs, which has boosted the market for refurbished wheelchairs. The development of the wheelchair market in India is hampered by all these factors.

Impact of COVID-19 on India Wheelchair Market

The disease has spread across the country since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019. COVID-19 impacted the economy in three ways: directly affecting product production and demand, disrupting distribution channels, and having a financial impact on firms and financial markets. The country faced transportation issues as a result of nationwide lockdowns. Moreover, people with physical disabilities were harmed by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was difficult to access healthcare services and visit hospitals due to lockdowns. In addition, the immune system found it difficult to protect against illnesses in patients with cerebral palsy or other disabilities.
