Market key trends:
Growing usage of lithium-ion batteries in mobility scooters is one of the key trends witnessed in the travel mobility scooter market. Lithium-ion batteries have higher power-to-weight ratio than lead-acid batteries, resulting in longer travel range on single charge. Their lightweight nature also makes mobility scooters easier to maneuver. Moreover, lithium-ion batteries have no memory effect and thus do not require regular charge-discharge cycles for optimal performance.
Strength: Travel mobility scooters Market provide independent and convenient mobility to the elderly and disabled population who have difficulties walking. They are compact, lightweight and portable making them easy to transport.
Weakness: Travel mobility scooters have limited battery ranges and require frequent recharging. They also have restrictions on where they can be used such as stairs, uneven terrain etc. Replacement of batteries increases the overall ownership cost.
Opportunity: Rising elderly population globally is driving the demand for assistive devices for mobility. Growing medical tourism activities also provides business opportunities for travel mobility scooters rentals.
Threats: Strict regulations for use of mobility scooters on public footpaths and roads. Growing demand for advanced micro-mobility options like electric bikes and wheelchairs poses competition.
