Market Dynamics

Aging upturns the dependency on others or assistive devices, for daily activities and living quality life. According to a report published in March 2016 by the U.S. Census Bureau, the share of world population aged 65 years and above is projected to increase from 8.5% in 2015 to 12% by 2030 and further increase to 16.7% by 2050. The report also states that the population in Asia and Latin America are rapidly aging. Japan is touted to be the oldest major country worldwide, with 26.6% of its population being aged 65 years and above in 2015. Therefore, demand for elderly assist devices such as hearing aids, reading aids and locomotive equipment (wheelchair, cranes and crutches) is projected to be high in Asia and Latin America during the forecast period (2016–2024).

However, the elderly and disabled assistive devices market, is witnessing intense competition especially from regional players as they offer products at a much cheaper rate. In order to overcome this challenge, market players are projected to focus on strengthening their distribution network and promote sales through strategic collaboration with distributors, hospitals, retailers and direct-to-consumers.

Therefore, WHO along with its collaborating centers is working towards improving accessibility of elderly and disabled assistive devices to better cater to the patient population. Few of this initiatives include:

Organizing regional and country workshops, meetings, and seminars

Creating a database on availability of appropriate assistive devices and technologies

Developing normative guidelines

Providing assistance for development of national policies and programs on assistive devices and technologies with a focus on human resource development

Furthermore, on the basis of discussion in the 66th World Health Assembly, held in 2013, WHO prepared a comprehensive global disability action plan for 2014 – 2021. Under this plan, WHO intends to improve access to health services and programs, extend rehabilitation, habilitation, assistive technology, assistance and support services, and support research on disability and related services. Such global initiatives are indirectly promoting adoption of assistive devices and are encouraging manufacturers to develop innovative elderly and disabled assistive devices.
