Robotic Exoskeleton Market Drivers
Increasing Demand of Exoskeleton in Military and Medical Application
A robotic exoskeleton supports the mobility of people suffering from diseases such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, and cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease. There is growing importance of exoskeleton in military operations as it helps in assisting injured soldiers and lifting heavy objects which is driving the growth of this market. Exoskeleton technologies helps to improve stamina and safety and also provides new ability to fighting forces. Companies such as Lockheed Martin are working on new powered lower-body exoskeleton, ONYX, which has demonstrated its ability to increase mobility and reduce fatigue. This technology helps to reduce effort in walking and climbing that can help soldiers to carry a mission-essential equipment and also helps to go extra mile. Rising military spending on the development of innovative equipment to strengthen the armed forces capability is increasing the demand of this market. In July 2015, the Australian Department of Defence developed a fully-passive system capable of reducing compression forces on the lower portion of the body. The US government are working on TALOS project in 2019 for developing a mobile exoskeleton to be used by Special Forces. Governments are investing in robotic exoskeletons for military purposes which are driving the growth of this segment. In August 2018, Rostec increases the physical abilities of a soldier and protects joints and the spine by developing its third-generation Ratnik infantry combat suite, a passive exoskeleton which increases the demand of exoskeleton in military application. In 23 January 2018, Cyberdyne, the Japanese robotics company got approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb) lower body exoskeleton designed to help people with lower limb disabilities for walking on their own which increases the demand of robotic exoskeleton thus contributing to the market growth.
Increasing Prevalence of Spinal Cord Injuries
Increasing number of disabled people and growing prevalence of spinal cord injury are some factors driving the growth of this market. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC), about 17,730 number of cases are suffering from spinal cord injury in 2018. Approximately 363,000 people are living with these injuries in 2019 which increases the demand of stationary exoskeleton and are boosting the growth of this market.
