Global Medical Exoskeleton Market

Global Medical Exoskeleton Market Size Zooming More Than 6X to Reach USD 2.1 Billion by 2029

Published | 17 March 2023

Global medical exoskeleton market is flourishing because of rapid adoption of technology advancements to address the healthcare need of aging world population and people with physical disabilities.

BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated global medical exoskeleton market size at USD 327.62 million in 2022. During the forecast period between 2023 and 2029, BlueWeave expects global medical exoskeleton market size to grow at a robust CAGR of 30.2% reaching a value of USD 2,072.40 million by 2029. Major growth factors of global medical exoskeleton market include growing elderly population across the world, rising rates of medical device utilization in various industries, such as automobile, military, defense, and construction, and increasing stroke incidences. The growing number of patients with physical disabilities worldwide will drive the medical exoskeleton market. The number of people with physical disabilities is rapidly increasing as a result of car accidents, strokes, and serious injuries, which should encourage the market growth. Strokes are more common in the elderly population. According to the United States Census Bureau, the number of Americans aged 65 and up will more than double by 2050, which could boost the demand for medical exoskeleton across the countries. As a result, the demand for rehabilitation is expected to fuel the growth of the medical exoskeleton market. Also, the increasing prevalence of spinal cord injuries (SCI) is likely to increase demand across the global market during the forecast period. However, regulatory challenges for securing approvals for medical is anticipated to restrain the global medical exoskeleton market during the period in analysis.

Global Medical Exoskeleton Market – Overview

Robotics is an application of engineering aimed at replacing humans with menial duties, whereas exoskeletons are applications of robotics and bio-mechatronics aimed at augmenting humans while performing a variety of tasks. A robotic suit, powered armor, wearable machine, power jacket, and exo-frame or suit are all synonyms for the exoskeleton. The field of exoskeleton systems is constantly evolving in the current context. Exoskeletons are employed in a variety of industries, including military, civilian, and rehabilitation, to boost soldiers' travel and loading capacities, to strengthen an operator's load-handling capabilities, and to improve lost functionality and patient life. It is also used to treat musculoskeletal diseases. It aids physical therapists in training individuals with motor nerve degeneration and motor cognitive limitations. Exoskeletons are also used in rehabilitation, particularly inpatient training and movement. Wearable exoskeletons are gaining popularity due to the high need for assistive technology in the medical profession, specifically to address concerns about an aging society. Other medical issues, such as aiding trauma victims, paraplegics, spinal cord injured individuals, and rehabilitation, are also important.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Medical Exoskeleton Market

COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the worldwide economy, disrupting supply and demand chains and increasing unemployment rates, resulting in overall economic uncertainty. According to Ekso Bionics' 2020 annual report, revenue income decreased by 36% in FY2020 compared to FY2019 due to a substantial reduction in medical device sales. Furthermore, according to the annual report, the demand for exoskeleton-related items dropped by 38% at the start of the pandemic, resulting in 61 bookings in 2020 as opposed to 98 bookings in 2019.  Also, the pandemic led to a shortage of healthcare workers, which has made it difficult for hospitals and clinics to implement medical exoskeletons that require trained personnel to operate. However, the pandemic had a positive impact due to a surge in the number of patients with respiratory issues, and medical exoskeletons were used to support their respiratory function. Also, the rising emphasis on telemedicine influenced the medical exoskeleton market. As the pandemic limited in-person consultations, telemedicine has developed as an important method for healthcare practitioners to give care remotely. As a result, there was a demand for medical exoskeletons that may be used in telemedicine consultations. Hence, medical exoskeletons with remote monitoring and control capabilities have become increasingly popular.
