Physical barriers associated with wheelchairs include inaccessible surroundings, lack of pavements, and climate and physical terrain. For instance, according to the American Nurses Association (ANA), the physical environment can lead to restrictions on the movement and positioning of the patients. This scenario is projected to impact the growth of the patient handling equipment market.

Increasing geriatric population profile of most countries contribute to the growth of the patient handling equipment market.

Moreover, the number of people globally over the age of 65 is expected to increase from 703 million in 2019 (constituting 9% of the world population) to 1.5 billion by the end of 2050. Therefore, an increase in the size of the geriatric population is anticipated to boost the demand for the patient handling equipment market during the forecast period.
