Global Wheelchair Platform Stairlifts Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Wheelchair Platform Stairlifts provide a means for wheelchair users to access areas that may have stairs, without having to rely on someone else to carry them. They are also helpful in providing access to areas that may be too narrow or have other obstacles for a wheelchair user to navigate.

Straight Stairlift:

A straight stairlift is a type of wheelchair-based mobility equipment that consists of a rail system and steps or rails. It has the ability to move independently on four wheels, making it easier for people in wheelchairs to access flights of stairs and steps with ease. The device can be used by people suffering from spinal cord injuries, arthritis, Parkinson's disease or any other movement disability.

Curved Stairlift:

A curved stairlift is a type of wheelchair lift used to transfer people with disabilities from their wheelchairs or other mobility aids onto steps, risers, and into the arms of volunteers. It is also used by able-bodied individuals for ascending and descending flights of stairs.

Application Insights:

The application of the wheelchair platform stairlifts is generally limited to residential and public places. The residential segment dominated the global market in 2017, accounting for over 60% of the total revenue share. This can be attributed to growing urbanization along with rising number of single-parent families due to which there has been a rise in demand for single-level housing units. Furthermore, an increase in aging population across various regions has also created a growth potential for this industry thereby driving demand from the residential sector.

The public place segment is expected to grow at fastest CAGR during forecast years owing to increasing government spending on infrastructure development as well as increased spending on healthcare facilities by companies operating within this sector such as AT&T Inc., IBM Corporation and Microsoft Corporation among others are expected to invest heavily over next few years thus creating growth opportunities for wheelchairs platform stairlifts globally.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global wheelchair platform stairlifts market in 2017. This can be attributed to increasing number of people suffering from osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, growing geriatric population, rising awareness about accessible transportation, and increasing government initiatives. For instance, in 2015-2016 academic year, Stairlift Aide conducted over 40 residential training sessions for ramp users on how to use wheelchair access stairs with an assistance of a lift. Europe is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period owing to increased spending power among consumers as well as improved economic conditions after recession in 2008-09.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to improving healthcare infrastructure especially hospitals & clinics along with rising prevalence of target diseases such as Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis (MS).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing elderly population: The global elderly population is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2016 to 2020, owing to the increase in life expectancy and the decline in fertility rates. This will result in an increase in demand for wheelchair platform stairlifts, as they provide a safe and easy way for seniors to travel between floors.
  • Rising awareness about disability aids: There is a growing awareness among people about disability aids such as wheelchair platform stairlifts, which is helping to drive their demand. In addition, governments are also promoting the use of these devices through various initiatives and schemes, thereby aiding market growth.
  • Technological advancements: The development of new technologies has led to the introduction of advanced wheelchair platform stairlifts that are easier and safer to use than traditional models. This is resulting in an increase in their adoption by consumers worldwide, thus propelling market growth further..
