Exoskeleton market dynamics

Driver: Growing demand from the healthcare sector for robotic rehabilitation

Robot-assisted therapy systems are being increasingly used in rehabilitation processes as they provide countless benefits in performing repeated movements during goal-directed tasks, the evaluation of different physiological and functional parameters during rehabilitation exercises, improving motivation, and assisting home exercises and training.

The use of exoskeletons for such purposes has grown, in part, due to the increase in the number of people with physical disabilities, especially the geriatric population. According to the Statistics Bureau of Japan, in 2019, the population aged 65 years and above was 35.89 million, constituting 28.4% of the total population (i.e., 1 in every 4 people)—marking a record high. It not only implies that there are more potential users for humanoid robots but also signifies that the number of active people to look after the elderly and disabled would be few. Even in North America, it is estimated by the Administration on Aging (AOA) that over the past 10 years, the population aged 65 and above increased from 38.8 million in 2008 to 52.4 million in 2018 (a 35% increase) and is projected to reach 94.7 million in 2060.

Restraint: Regulatory challenges for securing approvals for medical applications of exoskeletons

User safety and device reliability are the main concerns in the development and regulation of medical devices. Manufacturers’ skills and expertise pertaining to technical designing can matter during the testing of the product. The malfunctioning of a medical device can lead to life-threatening consequences, and hence, exoskeletons developed for healthcare applications need to be thoroughly examined. Currently, there are a few standards that are directly applicable to the exoskeleton industry. The FDA recognizes ISO standards that are applicable to relevant industries, and only products that receive regulatory approvals can be sold in the market.

Opportunity: Increasing adoption of human augmentation equipment in industrial and military sectors

Years of research has resulted in the transformation of load systems into human augmentation equipment. As exoskeleton systems can enhance powerlifting, load carrying, and endurance functions; the market has received a series of funding from the department of defense of several nations. Also, the market for exoskeletons is exhibiting an upbeat growth outlook, which, coupled with growing awareness about these devices in different fields, is attracting more investments in the industry—especially from private venture capitalists. Various exoskeletons developed to date are effectively designed and tested for mechanical structure (accessories such as guns, dead weight, devices, and others) and support soldiers in augmenting main body strength. Also, exoskeletons provide very strong load-supporting assistance with the freedom of decoupling the load at the same time. Such features of exoskeletons aid soldiers in carrying heavy loads. Several companies that are engaged in providing exoskeletons for military applications include Lockheed Martin (US), B-Temia (Canada), Bionic Power (Canada), Fourier Intelligence (China), and suitX (US).

Challenge: High equipment cost

Technological advancements have played a big role in the development of cost-efficient and affordable exoskeletons; however, they are yet to reach their market potential. The degree of usability of exoskeletons is a big issue being faced by the industry as exoskeletons are slow and cumbersome. Cost acts as a barrier for the adoption of exoskeletons for rehabilitation among people with disabilities in low-income countries. A patient with a lower limb disability will have to pay a high price for an exoskeleton power suit for robotic rehabilitation, along with the supervision session conducted by physiotherapists, who are trained to work with power suits. A patient will have to pay for the exoskeleton and other standard medical expenses such as surgery and hospital stay, making the use of the exoskeleton incredibly expensive. Hence, the companies in the industry are focusing on R&D to develop cost-efficient exoskeleton solutions.

Market for powered exoskeletons to grow at higher CAGR during the forecast period

Powered exoskeletons accounted for the larger share of the overall exoskeleton market in 2020. The high cost of powered exoskeletons leads to a higher market share of the technology compared to passive exoskeletons. At present, powered exoskeletons are mainly used in the healthcare vertical to assist people with disabilities, but with the introduction of cost-efficient systems and because of their additional benefits over the passive ones, powered exoskeletons will find their applications in several new verticals, ultimately resulting in the high growth of the segment during the forecast period.

Exoskeleton market for software to hold the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026

The software segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Technological advancements will lead to an increase in complexities in exoskeletons in terms of inter-device connectivity, artificial intelligence (AI), and autonomous operations; the value of software in the overall exoskeleton market will increase more than that of hardware, as the software will assist such complex functionalities in processing efficiently and accurately. At present, a number of software packages suited to ergonomic simulation are available in the market. In response to the limitations of traditional design tools, software providers now offer a number of 3D CAD software packages for exoskeletons. These digital human modeling (DHM) software tools enable models of humans to interact with virtual products and workplaces in a CAD environment. Developers have boosted modeling and simulation capabilities, enabling designers to develop exoskeletons with better cost efficiency for broader adoption.

Mobile exoskeleton segment to hold highest market share during the forecast period

Mobile exoskeletons accounted for the larger share of the overall exoskeleton market in 2020 and the segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR from 2021 to 2026. The basic purpose of using exoskeletons is to provide mobility to people, which can be achieved only by using mobile exoskeletons; hence, the demand for mobile exoskeletons is more than the stationary ones. Lower extremity exoskeletons developed for human locomotion assistance are used to help patients who have completely lost mobility in the lower limbs due to conditions such as spinal cord injury (SCI), multiple sclerosis, etc. Some of the most widely used mobile exoskeleton technologies developed for users who have lower-limb mobility impairments are ReWalk, Rex, Indego, Ekso, HAL, Atlas, and others. The application of stationary exoskeletons is limited only to therapies related to healthcare or is used for training purposes in some other verticals. The healthcare vertical is a major consumer of mobile exoskeletons. These exoskeletons are also being adopted across new application areas such as defense, sports and fitness, and search and rescue due to the growing visibility of the benefits offered by them.

Exoskeleton market for lower extremities to capture highest market share from 2021 to 2026

The lower extremities segment is anticipated to account for the largest share of the market share during the forecast period, followed by the upper body segment. Most exoskeletons are designed to help a user with mobility issues. The most common mobility issues are associated with problems in the lower half of the body. Thus, the demand for lower-body exoskeletons is relatively high. Lower-body exoskeletons are used in the healthcare vertical, which is the largest vertical in the exoskeleton market, to provide mobility to people with disabilities. They can also be used in several other applications, such as to assist soldiers on a battlefield or to enhance the speed and coverage of a player. Hence, the lower extremities segment will continue to account for the largest share of the exoskeleton market throughout the forecast period.
