Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “The availability of lightweight smart wheelchairs is one of the significant trends in the market. A smart wheelchair is a lightweight, foldable, and very portable powered wheelchair designed to meet the needs of the consumers. A smart wheelchair weighs nearly 50 pounds and folds up easily to fit conveniently in a vehicle. It has a lightweight lithium-ion battery that retains a charge for a longer period, unlike the batteries present in other powered wheelchairs. In addition, a smart wheelchair has a maximum speed of around 3.73 miles per hour and can be constantly used for around9.94 miles.
Being equipped with anti-tip rear wheels, the wheelchair is prevented from tipping over and can easily handle slopes up to 12 degrees.”

According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increasing aging population that requires assistance for mobility due to musculoskeletal disorders and joint injuries. Powered wheelchairs play a significant role in providing assistance in mobility to the aging and disabled population.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the market is the presence of substitutes. Substitutes for powered wheelchairs are manual wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
