Key Market Trends

Manual Wheelchairs Segment Dominates the Market and is Expected to do so in the Forecast Period.

In addition, they occur in a range of configurations, from standard to ultra-lightweight, requiring less space for storage with various customization options, such as foldable or completely collapsible wheelchairs.
  • Apart from the advantages of the manual pediatric wheelchairs, the other factors that drive the growth of the segment are the increasing prevalence of physical disability either due to injury or due to birth defects like epilepsy, Spinal Bifida, cerebral palsy, etc. According to the Spina Bifida Association, every day, about eight babies born in the United States have Spina Bifida or a similar birth defect of the brain and spine.
