Mounting Global Efforts to Provide Institutionalized Healthcare to the Disabled and the Elderly to Foster Bright Prospects for the Mobility Devices Market

The global mobility devices market size is projected to reach USD 14.86 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period. Staggering rate of growth of geriatric population across the globe will be one of the crucial factors driving this market in the upcoming decade. Old age entails a plethora of disorders that generally restrict mobility in aged individuals and render them helpless.
