Moreover, on the basis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately one out of every four adults in the U.S., totaling around 61 million individuals, has a disability. In addition, about 14% of these individuals experience mobility limitations, such as difficulty walking or climbing stairs, with this number expected to increase in the future.

In addition, the price of oil and gas has increased extensively, and many countries, mainly, the nations in Europe, Latin America, and developing economies in Asia-Pacific have experienced intense negative effects on manufacturing industry. However, India and China are performing relatively well. In addition, inflation is anticipated to worsen within the coming years, as the possibility of the ending of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia is much less. However, a peace agreement between Ukraine and Russia may be devised, with continued talks among the nations.

Analyst Review

An increase in the number of old age population, increasing incidents of disabling accidents , rising disposable income of people in developing parts of the world, and various advantages of straight stairlift over its counterparts are driving the straight stair lifts market.

Europe has been a leader in the market owing to the presence of a large old age population with a significantly high disposable income and high living standards. Similarly, North America also has old age people with high living standards. These reasons are responsible for a higher market share of both of these regions. Moreover, most of the major manufacturers have a well-established sales network in these regions. On the other hand, majorly developing regions such as Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa are witnessing a rapid increment in the old age population, however the disposable income is lower than Europe and North America leading to low market share of these regions in terms of sale. Contrarily, these developing regions are witnessing a rapid increase in GDP per capita which is anticipated to enhance the straight stairlifts market overview in the world.
