Global Exoskeletons Market size to exceed $3.5 bn by 2026

Exoskeletons Market size is estimated to exceed USD 3.5 billion by 2026; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.

Increasing incident rates of stroke, spinal cord injury (SCI), or other diseases coupled with the growing number of accidents will drive the overall patient number suffering from mobility disorders. Over 15 million people are paralyzed and unable to walk, that in turn will provide strong growth opportunities for the exoskeletons market size. Research and development projects to reduce the overall costs and enhance its applications in military, industrial and recreational sectors will further support the industry expansion through 2026.

Exoskeletons are classified under class II by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that requires close application monitoring by regulatory authorities. Extensive clinical trials and approvals are required to demonstrate their safety in medical and personal mobility. Lengthy ethical approval procedures, complex patients’ requirement, and clinical uptake are required prior to product commercialization. These factors will inadvertently boost the consumer confidence in the products and thereby augment the exoskeletons market size over the forecast timeframe.

Strategic collaboration between industry participants and research institutions to develop innovative solutions will further propel the exoskeletons market size over the forecast period. For instance, in September 2018 Lockheed Martin Corporation invest in 12-month partnership with Institute for Intelligent Systems Research (IISRI) of Deakin University to expand the functionality of FORTIS. It is featured with lightweight and designed to reduce worker’s fatigue and improve safety.

Limitations associated with existing systems that include affordability, weight, size, speed, and efficiency, are projected to hamper the exoskeletons market share over the forecast timeframe. Researchers are working for the development of lightweight, affordable, and easy to use systems, to overcome limitations and provide increased user support. However, this in turn has led to significant increase in the investments, hampering the profitability of the existing industry participants

Based on product, mobile exoskeletons market revenue share is expected to witness highest growth over the forecast timeframe. Technological advancement in products and reduction in cost supported by smaller and powerful motors, inexpensive gyroscope and accelerometer provide the users with the required ease of mobility. Additionally, increasing usage in rehabilitation from stroke, and other physical disabilities will support the segment growth.

Healthcare application segment will hold dominant exoskeletons market share through the forecast period. Growing rehabilitation requirement for disorders that include Parkinson’s disease, gait disorders and spinal cord injuries are expected to drive the system deployment in healthcare centers. Chief benefits offered to heath care providers include reduced burden on therapists to support during training and improved therapy results.

Active exoskeletons market size will witness highest growth owing to considerable requirement from industrial field coupled with technological advancement including fusion of man, machine, and information. For instance, Cyberdyne, Inc. developed Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) product for the usage of operations in nuclear power plants. Additionally, advantages associated with powered systems such as increased power output, strengthened support, and effective performance in enabling the human mobility will further support the segment growth.

Asia Pacific exoskeletons market will witness highest CAGR over the forecast period due to the high number of research and development initiatives by Japan, South Korea, and China in medical and military sectors. For instance, in 2018, Norinco, a state-owned manufacturer in China, introduced military exosuits to boost weight carrying capacity of armed forces. Additionally, China Shipbuilding Industry have deployed exoskeletons for shipyard workers, and military engineers have developed L-70 for their armed forces applications.

Major industry participants in the exoskeletons market share include Ekso Bionics, CYBERDYNE INC., ReWalk Robotics, and Rex Bionics Ltd. Collaboration with medical and defense research institutes are among the prominent strategies adopted by the industry participants to develop new products and increase their market share. For instance, In March 2018, Ekso Bionics entered into educational partnership with National Stroke Association. This strategy enabled the company to improve awareness and access to advance stroke rehabilitation exoskeleton technology.
