Exoskeleton Market, By Mode of Operation,  2023-2035 (USD Billion)


Over the years, the healthcare burden due to neurological disorders, including multiple sclerosis and strokes, has increased significantly with the growing prevalence of such disorders. As per the estimates of World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 1.8 million individuals, worldwide, currently suffer from multiple sclerosis, whereas over 12.2 million patients experience stroke, every year. These statistics are anticipated to increase further with the rise in the geriatric population.

Neurological disorders often lead to muscle weakness, which affects mobility, whether in localized muscle groups (such as hemiplegia, paraplegia, or quadriplegia) or the entire body. Unfortunately, there is no cure for neuromotor impairment; however, the use of assistive ambulatory devices, such as wheelchairs, crutches, and walkers can enhance independence and comfort for patients. Though these assistive devices are widely popular, they provide short-term relief rather than a transformative solution. Moreover, improper handling or prolonged use of these devices can lead to physical fatigue, discomfort and even injuries, thereby decreasing the quality of life (QoL); in fact, about 50% of the manual wheelchair users are reported to have a shoulder injury at some point in their lives.

Over the years, exoskeletons have emerged as a partial alternative or a companion rehabilitation device that allow individuals with spinal cord injury and related injuries to walk freely in hospital and at home compared to the conventional ambulatory options. A medical exoskeleton is a wearable electromechanical device designed to help patients with mobility issues, that are either partially or completely paralyzed, in restoring movements of upper extremity or lower extremity. Leveraging neuroplasticity, the medical exoskeleton equipped with sensors, motors, actuators, power sources and control strategies enable recovery of fundamental movements and speed up recovery from injuries, such as acquired brain injury (ABI) or spinal cord injury (SCI). Apart from patients, healthcare providers, such as nurses and surgeons, also suffer from a range of musculoskeletal disorders due to the physically demanding nature of their roles in the healthcare sector. Medical exoskeleton can assist caregivers with tasks such as lifting and moving patients, negotiating obstacles, and standing for extended periods of time.

Beyond the healthcare industry, exoskeleton technology is serving to augment the performance as well as prevent work-related accidents of workers employed in a wide range of industries, such as construction, logistics, vehicle factory, aircraft manufacture, shipyard, automotive / metal mechanics industry, foundry, aeronautics, maintenance, and other factory works. According to the estimates of International Labor Organization(ILO), over 2.3 million workers die every year to work-related accidents or diseases. With such a staggering number of accidents each year, the adoption of industrial exoskeleton assisting workers in physical strenuous tasks of lifting of loads or overhead work, has potential to not only improve workplace safety but also increase employee turnover, improve productivity, and save costs.

Despite their widespread benefits, several factors, including the cost barriers and lack of awareness limit the adoption of these devices amongst users. In order to ensure wider acceptance, exoskeleton companies are focusing their R&D efforts to lower the cost of exoskeleton, as well as integrating technologies such as cloud computing, deep learning, smart sensors and artificial intelligence in their exoskeleton portfolio. As the exoskeleton technology advances and the cost of exoskeletons decreases, and the stakeholders recognize the positive return on investment (ROI) on exoskeleton products (owing to higher benefit-cost ratio), the adoption of this nascent exoskeleton technology across various industries is poised to grow, ultimately driving the growth of the global exoskeleton market during the forecast period.
