The Top 5 Wheelchair Manufacturers in China

   According to the International Convention on the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System designated by the World Customs Organization (WCO), China’s customs statistics for the import and export trade of the wheelchair industry are designated by the international convention as HS code 8713. Within this code, 87131000 represents non-mechanically driven wheelchairs, and 87139000 represents other types of wheelchairs.

Additionally, according to statistics from the World Health Organization, 1% of the population requires the use of wheelchairs. With the improvement of people’s living standards, an increasing number of disabled individuals and elderly people can afford to purchase wheelchairs, whether manual or electric. Therefore, there are significant opportunities and business prospects in the global wheelchair market. Undoubtedly, China is the largest manufacturing country globally. According to statistics, 80% of wheelchairs worldwide are manufactured in China. In 2022, 9.218 million manual wheelchairs and 598,200 electric wheelchairs were exported. Although manual wheelchairs still dominate, electric wheelchairs show an increasing trend year by year.

Geographical Distribution of China's Wheelchair manufacturer

 There are over 100 wheelchair manufacturers in China, with over half of them capable of manufacturing electric wheelchairs. Wheelchair production in China is concentrated in regions such as Shanghai, Guangdong, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and Tianjin. The main markets are in South and East China, with Tianjin and Guangdong being the main production bases for manual wheelchairs. As China’s economic structure and industrial belts adjust, labor-intensive manual wheelchair manufacturing is gradually shifting to the north of China. Main distributors of manual wheelchairs should pay attention to manufacturers in northern China. Manufacturers of electric wheelchairs are mainly concentrated in Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and Guangzhou.

  Among the listed Chinese wheelchair companies, Jiangsu Yuwell, Intco, Hebei Youjie Medical, and Guangdong Kaiyang are leading in market share.

Price of Chinese Wheelchairs

From 2017 to 2022, China’s total export value of electric wheelchairs generally showed a fluctuating upward trend. In 2022, the export of electric wheelchairs amounted to 598,200 units, with a total export value of 339 million US dollars. The average price of electric wheelchairs was 567.09 US dollars per unit. Manual wheelchairs are much cheaper, ranging from 30 to 300 US dollars per unit. Wheelchair prices are influenced by various factors, such as the material (aluminum alloy wheelchairs are more expensive than iron ones), the type of battery (lithium battery wheelchairs are more expensive than lead-acid battery ones), and the brand (listed brands generally have higher prices than other small and medium-sized enterprises). Manufacturers in southern China generally have higher prices than those in the north. Other factors such as local government policy subsidies also affect prices. Therefore, selecting quality suppliers should be considered from multiple aspects.
