Rapidly growing geriatric population, increasing incidence of stroke, and improved funding for robotic research technology are some of the factors driving global healthcare assistive robot market size.
Geriatric population base has significantly increased from 9.2% in 1990 to 11.7% in 2013 and is expected to expand continuously reaching 21.1 % by 2050. This demographic shift will create a substantial demand for geriatric-care services such as robots that assist and supports the elderly and disabled population. Healthcare assistive robot market share for rehabilitation is expected witness considerable growth owing to the movement controllability and measurement reliability, making them ideal instruments for quick rehabilitation.
Assistive rehabilitation robot is established as a gold standard treatment for rehabilitation of stroke recovered patients due to its ability to perform repetitive set of exercises and provide measurable feedback as against physiotherapists. According to WHF, more than 15 million people suffer from stroke each year, of which nearly six million die and remaining five million are left permanently disabled. Increasing number of stroke patients will escalate healthcare assistive robot market demand.
Favorable government regulations have boosted healthcare assistive robots market growth. For instance, Technology-related Assistance for Individuals with Disabilities Act have stimulated development of assistive technology devices by providing funds to the states. Growing awareness coupled with increasing efforts to promote robotic research will fuel business growth.
Healthcare assistive robot market growth over the forecast years will be restrained by factors such as limited understanding of exact robot mechanism in overcoming nervous and physical impairment, high R&D cost and lack of regulatory approval mechanism before commercialization.
