Mobility scooter market patterns. A key objective of this study has been to identify existing numbers of UK movement scooter users together with future patterns, making use of available business market data. Such information, it was believed, might potentially reveal trends in scooter sales and also patterns in sales of movement scooters relative to wheelchairs. In our analysis we have actually taken a look at both released industrial market information and two current market research studies of the movement items sector by Customer Focus in 2010 and the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) in 2011. We have also sought advice from a number of key market stakeholders including the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA), Motability and a sample of merchants and manufacturers. Details of these studies, data and assessments are provided below.

Key findings? Much of the published commercial market information is incomplete or irregular and should be treated with care. This view is verified by the OFT and Customer Focus market studies and our consultations with market stakeholders. " Finest quotes" making use of all sources including our consultations put UK annual sales value of "mobility equipment" (defined as scooters, wheelchairs and day-to-day living aids such as stairlifts, strolling frames, rails and bathing hoists) at approximately £ 500 million (OFT) and UK sales value of scooters and wheelchairs at roughly £ 200 million (BHTA); yearly sales numbers of movement scooters at approximately 80,000 per year and the total number of mobility scooter users at 300,000-- 350,000 per annum (BHTA). Sales of movement scooters are increasing at a rate of around 5-10% per annum. There is significant growth in the second hand market and in web sales, in addition to in retail advertising. Registered Retail Registered Prices (RRPs) for mobility scooters do not accurately show sales prices which are frequently quite lower. Class 2 boot scooters are the most popular type of mobility scooter.? It prevails for movement scooter users to own more than one scooter, or to use a wheelchair as well.

Review of marketing research Business market data A review of the published industrial market information in this area regrettably reveals an absence of comprehensive consistent details. This is true of market data for the "devices for disabled people" market as a whole, however is especially the case at sub-sector levels such as "mobility devices" or "mobility scooters". In these cases information is sometimes not gathered; and when it is gathered various research study business utilize various methodologies, and sometimes different meanings. The term "mobility devices" can be used to describe just wheelchairs and mobility scooters. Others specify "mobility devices" or the "mobility sector" as consisting of wheelchairs.

Mobility scooters market research study mobility scooters plus other "daily living aids" consisting of devices such as stairlifts, get rails, bathing equipment etc. Given these inconsistencies of definition and method market data does have to be treated with care. An additional factor pointed out for the lack of detailed data is the complexity of the marketplace-- in particular the diverse range of distribution channels, from the NHS to mainstream, specialist and online retail. Finally, where commercial market data and reports are available, they are mainly aimed at corporate investors and consequently their focus is on the monetary efficiency of the business involved and the worth of the sector, instead of the variety of units sold. Offered the large range of kinds of movement scooters and retail prices it is not possible to identify overall numbers of mobility scooters sold from annual sales value data with any precision. Data on varieties of mobility scooters sold each year is as opposed to sales worth is just readily available from Global Industry Analysts, who report 2011 sales of 122,000 systems.
