Robotic Wheelchair Market is set to witness growth at 11.5% CAGR from 2022 to 2032

The demand for robotic wheelchairs is being driven by increasing instances of permanent and temporary mobility deficiency, through geriatric population and obese individuals who are unable to engage in activities that require smooth movement. Owing to their ability to offer self-regulating mobility assistance for indoor activities, residential use of robotic wheelchairs has been gaining popularity.

Robotic wheelchairs, also known as power wheelchairs is an improved variant of commonly used electric wheelchairs. Robotic wheelchairs are equipped with sensors and runs with the help of artificial intelligence. These chairs can seamlessly detect obstacles in the way, navigate accordingly and improve the multifold user experience.

Robotic Wheelchair Market: Dynamics

Demand for robotic wheelchair is rising mainly because of the steady rise in the numbers of elderly and disabled people in countries like Japan. In addition, increase in disposable income of consumers and R&D activities done by manufacturers are important factors to keep the market rejuvenated.

The availability of a wide variety of robotic wheelchair devices of the next decade is driving a rise in customer numbers. This will be pushing the demand in the years ahead. Nonetheless, robotic wheelchairs’ high operating cost is a major obstacle that limits market development for such wheelchairs. That is particularly accurate in developing countries.

During the forecast period, commercial applications of robotic wheelchair market is expected to grow due to a rise in robotic wheelchairs in areas such as hospitals, airports, tourist spots and social care homes. Panasonic and Whill Inc., for example, have developed self-driving robotic wheelchairs that can be operated through a smartphone and are used in hospitals and airports.

Robotic Wheelchair Market: Regional Overview

Owing to the rising demand in the U.S., North America accounted for the largest share of over 30% in the robotic wheelchair market. Rapid acceptance of technology and increasing elderly population are the key factors pushing businesses and medical research institutes to implement independent mobility assistance robotic wheelchairs.

Countries like the Germany, China, India and U.K. are seeing substantial demand for robotic wheelchairs due to increasing geriatric population, high purchasing power and technological advances.

Technical University of Athens, as well as research initiatives taken by businesses in Europe for the disabled and the elderly, focuses on self-directed robotic wheelchairs with the aid of numerous initiatives such as the MANUS project for everyday tasks and the digital wheelchair project for industrial applications.
