Covid-19 Impact

The global market cap suffered losses due to the restrictions laid down as precautionary measures during the initial phase of Covid-19. Owing to various transportation regulations, the global market faced issues with the availability of raw materials and the supply chain. The demand for the products also took a dip owing to the various financial uncertainties that arose as a consequence of the virus.

Wearable Robotic Exoskeleton Market: Growth Drivers

Technological advancements to aid market growth during the projection period

The global wearable robotic exoskeleton market is anticipated to grow owing to the various research & development activities carried out in the field of robotic processes and artificial intelligence. Since the world is moving towards further technological growth, every sector is moving towards innovation and adopting innovative technologies. Not until long ago, robotic exoskeletons existed only as prototypes or seemed impossible for actual use.

However, the technology has already entered multiple segments especially, the healthcare and military services where it is showing exceptional outcomes. For instance, in military services, the device can be used to increase the endurance level, strength, mobility, and load-carrying capacity of military men. Every country is investing heavily in upgrading its military structure for future protection.

The US military spending was around USD 801 billion in 2021, and as per the latest reports by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, the global value of military spending has crossed USD 2 trillion as of 2022. These high numbers indicate the intensive measures undertaken by various military services to stay ahead in the game and upgrade the protection quotient.

The global market cap is expected to benefit from the rising trend and popularity of industrial body parts owing to the programming flexibility offered by the product. Since wearable robotic exoskeleton can be manufactured with varying types of raw materials like fiberglass, carbon fiber, aluminum, etc., and can be custom-made as per the industrial requirement, their demand in the global industrial market is skyrocketing especially in manufacturing units where there is a constant need for heavy-loads pick-up facilities.

Wearable Robotic Exoskeleton Market: Restraints

Initial high-cost step-up to restrict the market growth

Even though there are numerous advancements in technology, they come with a high initial price tag rendering them unaffordable for many business units since it may affect the budgeting of the organizations. As of 2021, the price range of some of the wearable robotic exoskeletons in the medical sector was around USD 80,000 whereas the ones with the lower price bracket cost as much as USD 30,000.

There are numerous efforts being made in the line of reducing the cost but there is still a long way to go and until then, the global market is expected to witness restricted growth owing to the high expenses associated with the initial cost along with the maintenance of the technology in the long run

Wearable Robotic Exoskeleton Market: Opportunities

High-quality deliverables to provide market growth opportunities.

Wearable robotic exoskeletons have proven to be effective in many scenarios across industries. The outputs delivered by the technology are of exceptional quality and hence it has managed to generate the interest of many business organizations to invest in the technology and make it more affordable in order to increase the consumer database.

Many governments are also funding these developments for economic growth which is anticipated to provide ample growth opportunities for the global market during the projection period.

Wearable Robotic Exoskeleton Market: Challenges

Stringent government regulations in the healthcare sector challenge the market expansion

For any product to be used in the medicinal or healthcare sector, it requires multiple approvals from regulatory bodies that determine if the product leads to any unwanted repercussions while being used. Since wearable robotic exoskeletons are hardware machines, there are stringent government regulations in place approving the monitoring of the use of this technology.

These factors may challenge global market expansion since approvals may take years before the product can be used for practical purposes discouraging many businesses willing to invest in the technology unless regulatory authorities create systems that can smoothen the approval process.

Wearable Robotic Exoskeleton Market: Segmentation

The global wearable robotic exoskeleton market is segmented based on type, application, and region.

Based on type, the global market segments are passive and powered. The global market is expected to be dominated by the powered wearable robotic exoskeleton since they have higher applications in the military, industrial, and healthcare sectors. Even though the technology is fairly new, it has already been extensively used to help patients suffering from extreme weakness to walk on their own.

The segmental growth may be attributed to the rising number of stroke patients. Almost 30 to 40% of stroke survivors lose their movement ability and in such cases, robotic technology can be used to assist the survivors with body movements.

Based on application, the global market is segmented into industrial, military, healthcare, aerospace, and others. The leading user of the technology is the healthcare sector because of the increasing number of strokes and other neurological disorders rendering patient immobility in many cases.

As per the World Health Organization, more than 1 billion people are affected by disorders like Alzheimer's, epilepsy, stroke, and others every year. More than 15 million people suffered from neurological cases in 2019 which is the equivalent of 1 in every 6 people.

Recent Developments:

  • In June 2022, scholars at the Italian Worker’s Compensation Authority (INAIL), and the IIT-Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia were successful in designing and realizing innovative prototypes of wearable robotic exoskeletons to be used in industrial set-ups. The prototypes are expected to enhance safety at industrial and manufacturing centers. The product works on artificial intelligence algorithms and motors and will help workers continue doing the most labor-intensive work with absolute ease.
  • In March 2021, engineers were able to combine wearable cameras and AI in self-walking robotic exoskeletons. The system works by combining AI algorithms and computer vision to replicate how an able-bodied person walks by analyzing the surrounding environment. The product is expected to eliminate the need for manual control of robotic exoskeletons thus empowering patients and taking a step further toward higher independence.

Wearable robotic exoskeletons, also known as exoskeletons or powered exosuits, are augmentation or aid devices for human mobility that are worn by humans. These exoskeletons can also go by the name "wearable robotic exoskeletons." They are primarily meant to support or augment the user's strength, endurance, and mobility. Their primary function is to aid the wearer. Exoskeletons are often constructed out of a frame or shell that is worn on the exterior of the body, in addition to motors or other mechanical components that help power the device. The user controls the exoskeleton by using a combination of sensors and computerized controls that react to the user's movements and provide feedback to the user. In most cases, the user controls the exoskeleton themselves.
