Scooters Medical Equipment Sector to Gain Traction Going Forward, Projects WinterGreen Research in New Report Published at MarketPublishers.com

21 Jul 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The markets for homecare medical equipment are expected to witness sustained growth, which is mainly attributed to the fact that the ageing population requires in-home medical care. The total market is composed mainly of wheelchairs, oxygen therapy equipment, scooters, accessibility beds, toilets and lifts. Until recently, homecare medical equipment has been sold primarily through independent distributers. However, the influence of direct sales via the Internet has given rise to some consolidation in the distribution marketplace, resulting in a drop in the number of distributers for homecare equipment.

With the population ageing, people are getting more feeble and need help with mobility. The advances in wheelchair technology are aimed at providing disabled persons with more mobility. Medical scooters represent an expanding segment of mobility for the ageing population, as they are characterised by improved performance outdoors. A host of issues have a bearing on the selection of a wheelchair, comprising reimbursement and cost availability.

The medical scooter sector is set to witness growth, propelled by the ageing of the baby boomers. These people have immense resources available for them for leisure trips, but need assistance in long distance travelling between points of interest. The growth of the scooter market largely depends on a hike in sales in travel destinations which are available either without charge, or for cheap rental rates to invite older visitors.
