By Type, the Straight segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

The global stair lift market is experiencing robust growth due to the increasing population of elderly individuals (aged 65 and above). These demographics face significant challenges navigating conventional stairways within residential properties, thereby fueling the demand for stair lift solutions. Inaccessibility to homes, particularly stairs, poses a significant barrier for individuals utilizing wheeled mobility devices and those with age-related mobility limitations. In the United States, over 50% of residential spaces present home accessibility issues, encompassing obstacles such as entryways, levels, washrooms, and stairs. The inability to navigate these areas can significantly impact the daily lives of physically impaired individuals.

By End-user, Residential  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

In the stair lift market, straight stair lifts cater to homes with unobstructed, straight staircases. These lifts necessitate a landing at both the top and bottom of the staircase for installation. The rail for a straight staircase is custom-fabricated to fit the specific dimensions of the staircase, ensuring a seamless and efficient ride. The simplicity of installation and operation, coupled with the flexibility to tailor the rail length, positions straight stair lifts as a preferred choice for homeowners. Consequently, the demand for straight stair lifts is projected to expand significantly within the forecast period.

North America is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024
