Electric wheelchairs are power wheelchairs used for mobility of disable persons. These wheelchairs do not require any human assistance for mobility as they are operated on batteries. The market is driven by increase in government funds for medical equipment for the population aged at 60 years and above, rise in incidence of spinal disorders, necessity for automated wheelchairs for disabled people, and inclination towards more sophisticated technology. However, high cost of electric wheelchair, lack of awareness and infrastructure in the developing & the underdeveloped countries are the constraints for the market growth.

The global electric wheelchairs market is categorized based on the type of product into front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, center wheel drive, standing electric wheelchairs, and others. Centre wheel drive segment generated a higher revenue in 2015, and is expected to dominate the market throughout the forecast period, owing to its stability on slopes & uneven terrain, and maneuvering is more intuitive for people with perceptual and cognitive impairment.

The demand for power wheelchairs is growing at a steady pace owing to the introduction of technologically advanced products that are equipped with accessibility and control gadgets.

However, high cost of electric wheelchairs and lack of infrastructure hinders the market growth.
