The canes and crutches market analysis offers insights into demand outlook in terms of product and distribution channel. It also studies key strategies adopted by vendors to increase sales in canes and crutches market

Fact.MR – A Market Research and Competitive Intelligence Provider: Adoption of canes and crutches in 2021 showcased an upward trend due to alarming rise in chronic ailments in aging individuals, finds Fact.MR in a recent study. The Fact MR analysis on canes and crutches projects expansion in the market at a 3.7% CAGR between 2020 and 2027.

High prevalence of mobility disorders such as progressive supranuclear palsy, ataxia, focal dystonia and parkinsonism is escalating demand for folding canes, owing to their easy accessibility and compact nature.

Offset canes are gaining traction among the geriatric population as they are lightweight, extremely durable, and distribute the users' weight across the shaft and rubber tips at the bottom, making them a popular choice among the aging population.

Possibilities of leg/foot injuries will keep the demand for axillary crutches afloat. Sales of forearm crutches will rise at a steady pace, depending upon future events that will lead to their purchase.

Additionally, increasing cases of rheumatoid arthritis due to aging, genetic inheritance, obesity, and early life exposure to injuries is anticipated to spur demand for quad canes, attributable to features like even weight distribution and a non-slippery base that provides adequate support to patients.

Conventional canes and crutches are slowly losing the interest of consumers as the prominence of strong alternatives such as wheelchairs and knee walkers is on a rise. However, research and development, coupled with the incorporation of technology is leading innovation in smart canes and crutches.

Such innovations include wWalk, a cane especially developed for visually impaired individuals, comprising smart technology including connectivity, motion sensor, speakers, and smartphone integration that warn the user about the obstacles ahead.

“Rising incidence of mobility-disorders, coupled with availability of a wider array of canes and crutches on online retail channels is shaping future outlook for cranes and crutches sales,” says a fact MR analyst.
