Global Healthcare Assistive Robot Market size to exceed $1.2 Bn by 2024

  • Published Date: January 3, 2019

Healthcare Assistive Robot Market size is set to exceed USD 1.2 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights.

Increasing incidence of stroke coupled with rising geriatric population worldwide is the key factor that will escalate the demand for healthcare assistive robots during the forecast period. According to the CROI, each year, 15 million people worldwide suffer a stroke of which around 6 million cases lead to mortality whereas about 5 million remain permanently disabled. Adoption of assistive rehabilitation robots as an innovative treatment for therapy of stroke recovered patient is increasing in recent years. Ability of these robots to perform repetitive sets of exercises and provision of measurable feedback will render positive impact on the healthcare assistive robot industry growth.

Furthermore, increase in funding for research on robotics technology will stimulate healthcare assistive robot industry growth over the analysis timeline. For instance, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is focusing on R&D pertaining to robotic technology to ensure better healthcare outcome and increasing life span of patients. Moreover, growing focus of industry players on development of technologically advanced robots will further spur the market size. However, high costs of robots and social stigma pertaining to robots may impede healthcare assistive robot market growth during the forthcoming years.
