North America Wheelchair Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the wheelchair market in the North American region was worth USD 1,512.04 million in 2022 and is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 6.32%, to reach USD 2,053.81 million by 2027.

A 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.

The need for medical equipment such as wheelchairs is predicted to rise as vaccines are expected to play a crucial role in the coming years. The steady increase in the number of senior patients, as well as government attempts to keep up with the demand for high-quality patient care, are projected to boost the expansion of the North American wheelchair market. Rapidly evolving technological improvements in wheelchairs, as well as the development of other products, such as powered wheelchairs, by a number of companies, are expected to boost wheelchair sales in the future years. The government's increased measures to improve the accessibility of modern wheelchairs in low-resource countries are likely to drive market growth.

During the forecast period, the rapid increase in the number of spinal cord injuries among the elderly is expected to fuel market sales at a significant rate. During the forecast period, demand for wheelchairs is likely to rise due to an increase in the prevalence of walking difficulties among all age groups and an increase in the frequency of lower extremity injury. A prominent trend projected to fuel future market sales is the evolution of technological advancements in wheelchair designs. The introduction of battery-powered electric wheelchairs is expected to provide greater assistance to users. Along with design improvements, we're seeing advancements in the ability to store and connect the device to the patient's medical history.

Due to the operational problems connected with wheelchairs and the high cost of powered wheelchairs, the market is likely to grow slowly over the forecast period.

The North America wheelchair market dominated the global market in 2020. The region's wheelchair market is likely to benefit from the existence of a high number of market players. The market is being driven by a growing geriatric population as well as an increase in the number of disorders requiring mobility support, such as spinal cord injuries. Every year, around 17,930 new spinal cord injuries occur in the United States, with automobile accidents being the most common cause of injury. As a result, the United States is an important market for wheelchairs.

The U.S. wheelchair market is predicted to account for the most significant share in the North American market during the forecast period. Because of their simplicity of use and capacity to go longer distances without becoming exhausted, electric wheelchairs provide the user additional independence. These wheelchairs are perfect for people who don't have much upper-body power. Because of the availability of advanced healthcare facilities in industrialized countries such as the United States, electric wheelchairs are more popular. SEGWAY INC., a firm located in the United States, has developed an egg-shaped pod that allows individuals to sit while cruising around campuses, amusement parks, airports, and even cities. Individuals in wheelchairs can also use this pod, which is designed for transit at a high speed of 24 miles per hour.

Due to the technical improvements, increased disability cases, and government programs for assistive devices, the Canadian wheelchair market is likely to rise. The market is also fuelled by the rise in obesity in the United States. Obesity among persons over 60 years old is quickly increasing in the United States, according to the Bureau's Population Bulletin.


Invacare Corporation, Carex Health Brands, Ottobock, Sunrise Medical Limited, Drive Medical Design & Manufacturing, Pride Mobility Products Corp., and GF Health Products, Inc. are a few of the prominent companies operating in the North America wheelchair market.
