Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavios team said: the healthcare reforms are focused on reducing healthcare expenditure and hospital stays. This has provided new avenues such as the development of self-drive wheelchairs and use of pant-style disposable adult diapers for home care settings. These do not require any assistance from nursing staff thereby reducing hospitalization expenses. These products are developed for the elderly population and can be utilized by younger physically impaired patients as well.

According to the report, the rapid rise in the elderly population and related diseases will be one of the prime drivers contributing to market growth during the forecast period.
