Market Insight

Exoskeletons are wearable electromechanical devices that have been developed to enhance the physical performance of the wearer. Exoskeletons contain rigid and resistant components that fulfill a set of functional roles in human bodies such as protection, excretion, sensing, support, and feeding. The current concerns over the spread of coronavirus are causing a decline in demand for exoskeleton in the global market. Exoskeleton market finds large applications in the healthcare sector whereas the market has slowdown due to a major focus on coronavirus pandemic. As the spread of COVID-19 is accelerating, global health care facilities are primarily focusing on treating and containing this virus, which in turn has reduced the sales of exoskeletons.


However, this industry will cope up with the disruptions in the near future due to growing innovations from manufactures. In recent times, a multidisciplinary team of doctors, robotics researchers and ergonomists from the University of Lorraine, Inria, the CHRU of Nancy CNRS and INRS collaborated to offer exoskeletons to medical staff working with COVID-19 patients in medical intensive care units, in order to relieve their physical constraints. Such innovations are expected to bring improvements in the working conditions of medical staff. Further, an increase in the adoption of IoT in the workforce, changing preferences, and rising need for connected devices are anticipated to sustain the market growth over the coming years.


The rising prevalence of Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and other muscle-related diseases globally is driving the growth of the exoskeleton market. These exoskeletons are placed on the user's body which performs as amplifiers that augment, support, or renovate human performance. As per research, the incidence of Parkinson’s disease increases with age and it estimated that an average of 4% of people diagnosed with PD before age 50. Additionally, rise in the aging population and the growing purchasing power of patients will increase the demand for exoskeleton and anticipated to influence the market growth. Further, the growing adoption of medical devices to support and trigger body movement will positively impact the acceptance of exoskeletons. Moreover, they are made up of rigid materials such as metal or carbon fiber which offer flexibility and comfortable motion during operation. Besides that, the growing importance of exoskeleton in the manufacturing and defense sector escalates the growth of the market. These robotic equipments are also finding a broader range of applications in industries such as construction and warehousing. However, the high cost involved in the production which increases the overall product cost is expected to hamper the market growth. Moreover, recent technological advancements and continuous investment in R&D to reduce the overall weight and relieve movement will fuel the demand for the exoskeleton market in the forecast period.


Among the geographies, North America region held the largest share in an industrial wearable. The US is the major market driver in the North America region. Over 1 million people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every year in the U.S. alone. Further, the growing geriatric population, increase in the number of organizations, and high purchasing power of patients increase the demand for the exoskeleton market. Further increasing funding for the development of technologically advanced products will propel the market growth in this region. However, Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. Growing healthcare infrastructure and the presence of a large patient pool is expected to increase the demand in this region.
