Increasing Number of Accidents to Promote Growth in Asia Pacific

Asia Pacific is expected to hold the largest global smart wheelchairs market share during the forecast period. China has among the nation’s largest rates of traffic accidents, and as a result, several people were hurt. China does have the country’s second disabled population, after India. A robust medical field, which produces items at far lower prices than other countries, makes China the most appealing market in Asia. Furthermore, different medical equipment manufacturers in the world are projected to result in considerable growth in the nation’s wheelchair and component industries in the coming years.

North America is expected to have a sizable share of the market. Because of growing government measures to assist the disabled population, the United States dominates the global market. Furthermore, manufacturers around the nation are constantly engaged in methods that enable them to access a broader patient base.

Competitive Landscape-

Increasing Number of Mergers to Create Opportunities for Market Growth

To stay competitive and maintain a strong product pipeline, medical device corporations continue to look for prospective assets from smaller companies with fewer resources to bring projects through to completion. Companies obtain these new items through licensing agreements and collaborations while continuing to pursue their in-house development strategy.

Industry Development-

  • May 2019: All Nippon Airways Co., Japan’s largest airline, teamed up with Panasonic to test the world’s largest generation smart wheelchairs at its airport. This enables a rising number of Japanese senior citizens to navigate airports independently.
