Rehabilitation Robots Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Application Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2021 – 2027

Report ID: GMI3844

Summary Methodology

Rehabilitation Robots Market size is projected to experience significant growth from 2019 to 2025.

Rehabilitation robotics includes the development of robotic devices that are personalized for supporting the movement of different sensorimotor functions such as arm, leg, ankle. Rising prevalence of neurological disorders such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis will spur the demand for rehabilitation robotic devices over the coming years. Rehabilitation robotic devices have tremendous ability to restore walking function in patients with stroke. According to the Internet Stroke Center, approximately 795,000 people suffer from stroke every year in the U.S. With a high prevalence of stroke in developed regions the adoption rate of rehabilitation robots will increase, thereby boosting the market growth. 

Growing geriatric population susceptible to falls and increasing incidence of conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, spinal cord injury and other age-related disabilities will positively impact the market growth. The advantage offered by rehabilitation robots include fast recovery of patient with the help of advanced technology resulting in augmenting the demand and adoption rate, hence, enhancing the industry growth. Furthermore, automatization of devices may help many patients to be treated simultaneously and even at their own homes through telerehabilitation. However, stringent government regulations regarding exoskeleton and high cost of robots will hamper the growth of rehabilitation robots market over the forecast period.

Therapeutic rehabilitation robot segment will hold a significant revenue share over the forecast timeframe. The growth is primarily attributed to high prevalence of neurological conditions such as stroke and multiple sclerosis. Therapeutic robots are machines or tools that allow the patient to perform activities or movements aided by robots. For instance, MIT-Manus the first therapeutic robot helped stroke patients to reach on the tabletop even if they were unable to perform certain tasks. Additionally, technological advancements in the field of therapeutic rehabilitation robot segment will further escalate industry growth.

Gait therapy is estimated to dominate the market in the upcoming years. Gait therapy is a type of physical therapy that improves the ability of patient to walk and stand. The demand for highly intensive physiological gait rehabilitation robotic devices for severely impaired neurological patients will increase due to the high prevalence of neurological conditions.

The adult segment will foresee a momentous growth over the forecast years owing to increase in the incidence of stroke in young adults. According to one report, the incidence of stroke rapidly increases with age. As per the report of NCBI, nearly 30 to 120 adults out of 100,000 individuals are affected from stroke every year. Additionally, growing geriatric population that are more susceptible to falls and injuries will spur the demand for rehabilitation robots over the forecast period. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls were the leading cause of traumatic brain injury in the geriatric population. Hence, above mentioned factors will boost the business growth in the near future.

Upper limb rehabilitation therapy will hold a significant market share and is estimated to show similar trend over the forecast years owing to technological advancements and upper limb injuries. Upper-extremity impairment is a significant disability in patients affected by a stroke. With the growing prevalence of stroke and other neurological disorder such as Parkinson’s Disease, the demand for curative therapy will increase, thereby augmenting the demand for upper limb rehabilitation therapy.  Additionally, easy adaption of upper limb rehabilitation robotic device to patient with different body sizes will further drive the market growth.

Robots used for neurorehabilitation will dominate the market in the coming years owing to the increasing incidence of neurological conditions and growing elderly people. The main targeted population served by the rehabilitation service in the United Kingdom are for neurological conditions. Hence, rise in number of neurological disorders across the globe will enhance the growth of rehabilitation robots market in the future.

U.S. rehabilitation robots market will foresee a significant growth owing to presence of well-established robotic industry and approvals of newer robotic rehabilitation and assistive technologies.  Increasing adoption for rehabilitation robots due to high prevalence of stroke will further drive the industry growth. Additionally, high investment for research and development will further pose lucrative business growth opportunity in the foreseeable future.

India rehabilitation robots market is expected to grow at a significant pace due to growing geriatric population and increasing prevalence of chronic ailments such as spinal cord injuries, orthopedic injuries, arthritis, and trauma.  Additionally, the initiatives undertaken by healthcare systems for providing neurorehabilitation to patients will further drive the market growth. For instance, Apollo Hospitals provide neurorehabilitation devices including Lokomat, Armeo, and Erigo for patients with stroke, brain injuries, spinal injuries, and multiple sclerosis.

Some of the major market players involved in the global rehabilitation robots market are Hocoma, tyromotion, Man&Telamong, AlterG, ANA-MED, BIONIK among others. Companies are investing more in research and development activities for developing innovative therapies.
