Mobility Scooters Market Statistics 2030 -

The global mobility scooters market was valued at $1.72 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $3.21 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.5% from 2021 to 2030.

Mobility scooters are electric propelled, mobility aid equivalent or auxiliary to a power wheelchair configured similar to a motorcycle. They are multi-featured vehicles that are electrically powered and at the same time offer individuals with limited mobility & independence to move indoor and outdoor. Mobility scooters are available in three wheeler or four wheeler and are majorly required by elderly population with impaired strength and balance. Mobility scooters are available in two forms, front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive. Front-wheel drive scooters are smaller and are primarily used indoors, whereas the rear-wheel drive scooters are used both outdoors and indoors. The rider weight capacity of a rear-wheel drive scooter is higher than the front-wheel drive scooter. Mobility scooters act as an alternative to wheelchairs and the market is expected to have a significant growth rate during the forecast period.

Rising awareness for advanced mobility devices

The proportion of aged population across the globe is rising at a rapid rate. With the growing age, the geriatric population is more prone to mobility disorders, which is anticipated to propel the market growth during the forecast period. The increasing disabled population is expected to boost the number of people requiring these scooters across the globe. According to the U.S. Census Bureau report of 2018, 40% of American adults aged 65 and older are reported to have mobility disability while having trouble with walking or standing. Mobility impairment may be caused by a number of factors such as congenital disorder, accidents, and orthopedic impairments, or neuromuscular disorders. The rapidly growing technological innovation in scooter designs and the introduction of several mobility products, such as powered scooters, by major companies are expected to expand the sales of mobility scooters in the forthcoming years.

Lack of standardization of EV charging

The electric vehicles battery source does not have any alternative source for charging. Shortage of charging points in most of the cities is a major challenging factor for growth of the global mobility scooters market. Furthermore, inconsistent infrastructure and range anxiety can create a problem for electric vehicles and can put the traveler at risk. Moreover, the implementation of supportive infrastructure required for electric vehicles in developing countries is less. Charging such vehicles in rural areas is a bigger issue where many people don’t have a dedicated charging spot, which makes it difficult to charge an electric mobility scooter at home. Furthermore, as the technology is not matured enough, apart from China, the sales of electric vehicles are extremely less as compared to other vehicle sale.

Growing R&D investments for enhanced battery technologies

Continual R&D and improvements in battery technology have helped improve the storage capacity and reduce the overall cost of batteries, such as lithium-ion batteries, making them a popular choice for mobile, low-cost devices such as electric kick scooters. In addition, ongoing development of technological advanced battery technologies, such as graphene batteries, solid-state electrolyte batteries, and zinc-manganese oxide batteries, helps to improve the range of electric vehicles, reduce overall weight, charging time as well as lower the carbon footprints, which is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for affordable mobility scooter market. For instance, March 2021, a Spain-based company Grabat developed graphene batteries, which can be charged to full in just a few minutes and can charge and discharge 33 times faster than lithium ion. Moreover, the slow charging time required for electric mobility scooters is one of the major concerns among the users. To address this concern, manufacturers are investing heavily on R&D to improve the charging time and range of these vehicles. For instance, in 2020, Japanese company Power Plan Plus announced the development of a carbon battery that gets charged 20 times faster than other batteries. Thus, the growing R&D investments and technological advancement for enhanced batteries are offering growth opportunities for the market.
