AI-based exoskeleton is used in various applications including rehabilitation centers, manufacturing facilities, construction sites, and military. It enables users to reduce fatigue and strain caused by repetitive tasks as well as reduce the risks of injury caused by lifting, carrying, or moving heavy loads. Additionally, the acceptance of exosuits helps in increasing productivity as well as improving proficiency, further promoting the market expansion.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the global market sales. The industry statistics witnessed a temporary decline in 2020. Due to government restrictions on import & export, OEMs around the world experienced a shortage of raw materials. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a decline in the overall manufacturing of electronic components required for exoskeletons because of the supply chain disruptions in the Asia Pacific semiconductor sector. The China semiconductor industry experienced disruptive challenges in component manufacturing owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the ongoing crisis between Russia and Ukraine is positively impacting the market in the military & defense sector of the Europe region.

 Increasing adoption of mobile exoskeletons in industrial applications will spur the market growth

The mobile segment generated a market revenue of around USD 400 million in 2021 on account of the rising demand in the industrial sector. Mobile exoskeletons are designed as wearable mobile machines integrated with actuators and sensors, covering the entire body. These exoskeletons provide the ability to stand, walk, and work mechanically to support body motion.

Several key players are focusing on developing advanced mobile exoskeleton solutions to gain a competitive edge in the market. For instance, in December 2021, Ekso Bionics, a medical equipment manufacturing business based in California, announced the development of new robotic exoskeletons for industrial applications. This is designed to wear by workers for all-day use to maintain ruggedness and durability.

Proliferation of healthcare applications in developing nations

The healthcare segment held over 50% of exoskeleton market share in 2021. Healthcare exoskeletons are integrated for various applications such as spinal cord injury, rehabilitation, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and others. The rise in injuries caused by accidents, work-related musculoskeletal injuries, and other factors are driving the demand for exosuits in the medical industry. According to the WHO, around 20 - 50 million people suffer from non-fatal injuries every year, resulting in a disability. The increasing usage of medical exosuits to actuate & support physical movements will fuel the market value.
