DUBLIN, Aug. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The "Medical Exoskeleton Market by Component (Hardware (Sensor, Actuator, Control System, Power Source), Software), Type (Powered, Passive), Extremities (Lower, Upper) & Mobility (Mobile, Stationary) - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to's offering.

Research and Markets Logo

The global medical exoskeleton market is projected to reach USD 571.6 million by 2023 from USD 116.7 million in 2018, at a CAGR of 37.4% during the forecast period.

Factors such as the increasing number of people with physical disabilities and subsequent growth in the demand for effective rehabilitation approaches and increasing insurance coverage for medical exoskeletons in several countries are driving the growth of the medical exoskeleton market. However, the high cost of medical exoskeletons may restrain the growth of the market to a certain extent.

The report segments the market into component, type, mobility, extremity, and region.

By extremity, the market is segmented into lower extremity medical exoskeletons and upper extremity medical exoskeletons. The upper extremity segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. These exoskeletons are generally used in the rehabilitation of upper limb amputees and stroke and cerebral palsy patients.

The medical exoskeleton market is segmented on the basis of component, into hardware and software. The hardware segment is estimated to account for the largest market share in 2018. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the fact that a large number of parts such as sensors, actuators, power sources, and control systems are required to manufacture exoskeletons. Manufacturers are also adding upgraded and advanced hardware into the overall design to enhance the capability of medical exoskeletons, making them smarter and more interactive.

The medical exoskeleton market is segmented by type into powered and passive exoskeletons. In 2018, the powered exoskeleton segment is expected to dominate the market. This segment is also expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The presence of sensors and various controlling functions in powered exoskeletons to sense motion, tilt, and speed is the major factor driving the growth of powered medical exoskeletons.

The market is dominated by North America, followed by Europe. Factors such the growing geriatric population, increasing demand for self-assist exoskeletons, high prevalence of stroke, and the growing number of spinal cord injuries (SCI) are driving market growth in this region.
