Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2033

Personal Mobility Devices Market size is poised to reach USD 21 Billion by the end of 2033, growing at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of personal mobility devices was USD 15 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing road accidents and crashes worldwide, along with the increasing count of workplace and sports injuries. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 1.3 million lives are lost each year as a result of road traffic accidents. The number of non-fatal injuries is between 20 and 50 million, with many of them resulting in a disability. In addition, it was stated that more than 4,37,000 road accident cases were reported in 2019 in India. A rise in traffic accidents has resulted in a higher number of people with severe disabilities as a result. Thus, the demand for personal mobility devices is predicted to grow rapidly over the forecast period.

Designed for a single user, the personal mobility devices include one or more wheels and an electric motor, along with a stopping system controlled either by brakes, gears, or other controls, and can only travel at modest speeds. Moreover, rising disposable income, followed by the increased awareness of self-care, high spending on healthcare, initiatives by the government to expand healthcare access, as well as the development of advanced innovative products are anticipated to expand global personal mobility devices market size during the forecast period. For instance, in January 2022, Falcon Mobility Pte. Ltd. launched its 2nd-generation Ultra-Lite 2 electric wheelchair, which provides lightweight mobility and is simple to operate.
