Shower chairs are essentially useful for the physically challenged people to safely and independently take a shower and bath. Growing consumer awareness regarding personal care and safety products is likely to drive the demand for such products. Consumers seek to purchase water & erosion resistive and comfortable shower chairs for their daily bath needs. Portable shower & commode sliding chairs are largely popular as users can use these chairs effectively as per their individual bathing needs.
A large number of portable chair manufacturers with competitive pricing create the competition intensive environment in the chair industry. Constant innovation in the portable chair designs effectively helps the leading players to cope up with such a competitive environment. For instance, in February 2020, Medifab launched bath chair & other accessory products under their Ultima Access brand to provide an easy seating option for the personal care needs of the people.
Increasing consumer demand for mobility assistant devices such as bathroom & toilet shower chairs, wheelchairs, crutches, walkers, etc. is anticipated to excel in the growth of the market. Additionally, rising consumer expenditure for purchasing personal and home care products is further fuelling the consumption of such items. A growing number of aged populations across the globe are driving the demand for mobility assistant devices. According to the statistics presented by the United Nations Department of Economic & Social Affairs, as of 2019, nearly 703 million people were aged above 65 years across the globe and the number is expected to increase to 1,500 million by 2050.
Moreover, the uncertain occurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the number of aged patient admissions in the hospitals and raised the patient's demand for personal protection & assistant devices. This is likely to drive the demand for the portable shower chairs.
However, the higher cost of portable shower chairs and the availability of other mobility assistant products is anticipated to restrain market growth. Additionally, the large reusability of these products limits the revenues by purchasing new items from the various product segments.

The global portable shower chair market is segmented based on material, distribution channel, end-user, and geography. Based on the material, the market is segmented into plastic, metal, wooden materials, and others (combination materials, etc.). The metal segment is expected to hold a major share of the market owing to the higher durability, lightweight nature, and water resistivity of the aluminum-based portable shower chairs. Additionally, these chairs contain anti-slip traction tape which avoids slipping of the users while bathing which gives rise to the consumer attraction towards them.
Based on the distribution channel, the market is segmented into specialty stores, hypermarkets & supermarkets, online stores, and others. The specialty stores segment is projected to hold a major share of the market owing to the wide availability of the different types of branded portable shower chairs in these stores. Additionally, consumers most likely to purchase such items from these stores as they can touch & compare the various product as well as can better understand the product features from the store’s staff. This helps them in finalizing the purchase decision of the chair.
Based on the end-user, the global market is segmented into hospitals, households, hotels & residencies, spa & salons, and others. The hospital segment is projected to exhibit a major share of the market owing to the large necessities of the portable wheelchairs and assistant devices among the aged population in the hospitals. Additionally, the provision of mobility assistant products by the various start-up companies to the hospital patients is likely to increase future segmental growth.
By geography, the global portable shower chair market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa.
North America region is expected to hold a major share of the market owing to a large number of physically disabled people in a country such as the United States which results in the higher consumption of the mobility assistant products. According to the estimated statistics presented by the Disability Statistics & Demographics Rehabilitation Research & Training Centre, as of 2018, about 13.1% of the people were physically disabled out of the total U.S. population.
Additionally, increasing the occupancy rate in the hotels & restaurants by the people is further driving the consumption of the shower chair products among the hotel rooms in the region. According to the statistics presented by the Hospitalitynet Organisation, in Canada, the hotel occupancy rate has improved by 0.5% point to 6.6% in 2018 over the previous year.
Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at a faster rate owing to the increasing number of geriatric population in countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea. This factor has given rise to the demand for the portable bath chairs & stools among aged people for solving their physical mobility issues. According to the data presented by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications Japan, in Japan, the number of people aged 65 years and above was estimated to be around 26.6% of the total population in 2015 which was increased to 28.1% in 2018.
Additionally, a rising number of hospitals & clinics in countries such as India, and China are driving the consumption of shower chairs for disabled patients in the region. According to the report ‘Rural Health Statistics Report’, presented by Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, the total number of health sub-centers and PHC health centers in India has increased from 133,194 by the end of 2015 to 234,200 as of March 2019 accounting an increase of 75.9%.
