The stair lift market is expected to show steady growth during the forecast period.

Stair lifts are mechanical devices used to transport people up and down stairs. They include a motorized seat or platform that moves along a rail attached to the staircase. These assistive devices are primarily used by people with mobility issues or physical disabilities. Stair lifts are commonly installed in homes, allowing people to navigate their homes even if they have limited mobility. The increasing aging population and musculoskeletal disorders are the major driving forces behind the stair lift market growth.

Market Developments

  • The growing aging population accelerated the stair lift market growth

Stair lifts are intended to safely transport users up and down staircases, giving them a new feeling of independence and freedom in their own homes. Such lifts provide a safer and more comfortable alternative to climbing stairs, lowering the risk of accidents and falls by eliminating the physical strain and effort associated with stair navigation.  According to the World Health Organization, the population aged 60 and older increased from 1 billion in 2020 to 1.4 billion, and between 2015 and 2050, the percentage of the world's population over 60 will nearly double, from 12% to 22%. Hence, the increasing old-age population is a major driving force behind the stair lift market growth.

  • Increasing musculoskeletal conditions contribute to the stair lift market growth.

Stair lifts help people who have difficulty navigating stairs due to musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritis, joint pain, or mobility impairments. By effortlessly gliding up and down the staircase, stair lifts reduce the strain and pressure on the joints, muscles, and bones, allowing users to maintain their independence and mobility, which has increased stair lift adoption, thereby propelling the market upward. For instance, according to the World Health Organization, musculoskeletal conditions affect approximately 1.71 billion people worldwide, significantly limiting mobility and dexterity, leading to early retirement from work, lower levels of well-being, and a reduced ability to travel independently in homes.

  • Technological advancement in stair lifts drives the stair lift market growth.

Advancements in stair lift technology have resulted in more efficient, user-friendly, and visually appealing stair lifts such as remote-control operation, battery-powered options, and advanced safety systems that attracted new customers. Innovations adopted in stair lifts have bolstered the market growth. For instance, in January 2021, the TK Elevator S200 is the next Generation Stairlift, that offers unparalleled safety, comfort, and convenience. It incorporates the latest technologies such as advanced safety, and power backup battery to remain in perfect working order.

North America is expected to grow significantly

North America is expected to account for a significant share of the stair lift market due to the growing aged population in the major NA countries. For instance, according to the United States Census Bureau, the U.S. population aged 65 and up grew nearly five times faster than the total population over the past 100 years (1920-2020). In 2020, the older population in the United States numbered 55.8 million, accounting for 16.8% of the total population, and in 2022, the older population in the United States increased to 98.37 million. Additionally, according to Statistics Canada, in 2021, 861,000 people, or 2.3% of the population aged 85 and above.

Market Restraints

  • High cost and installation complexity will restrain the stair lift market growth

Installing a stair lift takes up a large amount of space in the home and can be costly due to its complex design, installation requirements, and customization options. This can limit adoption for many potential customers, especially with a limited budget, which may hinder the stair lift market growth.
