MEA Wheelchair Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The Middle East & Africa wheelchair Market was worth USD 236.94 million in 2022 and is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 5.19%, to reach USD 305.09 million by 2027.

The wheelchair is an assisted device to improve the quality of life by supporting personal mobility-related issues in people who have disabilities in walking, like individuals with spinal cord injuries, muscular dystrophy, arthritis, old age, etc. Wheelchairs provide freedom for the disabled person to perform daily tasks in comfort to do normal daily functions. 

One of the key drivers for the MEA wheelchair market is the ever-increasing aging population. Senior People are more prone to acquire mobility challenges as they become older, which is expected to increase demand for wheelchairs, moving the market forward over the forecast period. 

The market is likely to develop at a quick rate throughout the forecast period, owing to the rapid growth in the number of spinal cord injuries among the elderly. 

In addition, the increasing government efforts and policies in low-resource countries to provide better wheelchair accessibility are expected to boost market growth over the forecast period. 

However, the Key firms are constantly active in the sector, launching new wheelchairs and related goods, stimulating growth in the MEA wheelchair market. For instance, the NAVIGO joystick power system for wheelchair users has been released by Yamaha Motor Corporation in the Middle East. The NAVIGO joystick power system is a portable and robust joystick power system that may be used with manual wheelchair frames. Therefore, firms have a significant opportunity to expand their market share with new product introductions.

However, Manual and motorized wheelchairs are the two types of wheelchairs available on the market. There is no battery in a manual wheelchair; therefore, it must be operated by hand. Because the bulk of the users are elderly and disabled, they must entrust their wheelchairs to others to operate. Manual wheelchairs can be replaced with powered wheelchairs, which run on electricity and can be operated by patients themselves.

 Also, these powered wheelchairs are more expensive than manual wheelchairs, which is expected to hamper the growth of the Middle East & Africa wheelchair market throughout the forecast period. Participants from the Middle East and Africa mentioned specific community locations or infrastructures where they frequently encountered challenges in the market. The most serious issue facing the wheelchair industry is adapted modes of mobility in wet or snowy conditions.
