Rising disability cases, owing to growing geriatric population, increasing number of road accidents, spinal cord injuries, meningitis, and workplace injuries are the leading factors expected to propel growth of the global personal mobility devices market.

Increasing disability cases is expected to drive the global personal mobility devices market growth. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2013, over 53 million people in the U.S. were suffering from some form of disability. Furthermore, the most common type of disability found was mobility disability, which was around 1 in 8 adults among all disabled cases according to the same source. Similarly, according to the World Population Prospects in 2017, global population aged over 60 years was 962 million, which is expected to reach around 2.1 billion by 2050. Globally, population aged 60 years and above is increasing faster than all younger age groups. This group of population is highly susceptible to different types of age-related diseases such as diabetes, renal insufficiency and arthritis, metabolic change, Parkinson's disease, organ failures, and nervous disorders.

Moreover, increasing product development and focus on addressing issues faced by wheelchair users, by manufacturers, is expected to propel growth of the market over the forecast period. For instance, Sunrise Medical (US) LLC launched advanced power wheelchair in 2016. The wheelchair, designed by Sunrise Medical (US) LLC, is assembled with a suspension and has advanced seating system, which supports complex seating and positioning needs. Furthermore, this chair has electronic features and user control.

However, lack of awareness about advanced personal mobility devices and unavailability of service centers is expected to hinder the market growth. Low access to rehabilitation centers in emerging economies is mainly found due to lack of proper transportation service for the people with disabilities. Moreover, the number of rehabilitation centers is very low in emerging countries, which causes disabled people to travel for long distance to receive appropriate treatment.
