What's New? -

The demand for manual wheelchairs, a key factor in this market's expansion, is being influenced by the growing elderly population. The geriatric population is supporting the adoption of manual wheelchairs and fueling the growth of the global manual wheelchair market with the rising demand for them, their increased availability in regional markets, and their low prices.

Due to the increase in disposable income of people in developing countries, the global market for manual wheelchairs is anticipated to expand at an accelerating rate during the forecast period. Increased healthcare costs will be a result of the rise in disposable income. The demand for manual wheelchairs will increase as people begin to prefer them over low-end mobility aids like canes, crutches, and walkers because of their greater convenience. During the forecast period, the vendors' efforts to meet the increased demand are anticipated to push them to broaden their product offerings and market penetration.
