The exoskeleton robot system is a type of human–robot cooperation system. Robotic exoskeletons are considered wearable robotic units controlled by computer boards to power a system of motors, pneumatics, levers, or hydraulics to restore locomotion. The exoskeleton robotic system market is growing due to rising incidence of stroke & musculoskeletal disorders and increasing strategic initiatives by market players.
Stroke continues to be a disease of major concern for public health, despite advancements in the medical industry. According to the Indian Stroke Association, the incidence of stroke in India has increased by ~100% over the past few decades. Furthermore, ~1.8 million people in India suffer a stroke yearly, and only early treatment can reduce morbidity and mortality. Even though the growing incidence of this noncommunicable disease threatens the larger population, stroke treatment and rehabilitation remain underdeveloped in the country. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year, more than 795,000 people in the US have a stroke, of which ~610,000 are first or new strokes. Further, stroke is the fifth-highest cause of death in the US, causing 147,810 deaths in 2018. Overall, there were an estimated 460,000 strokes in the US in 2019 (two-thirds were ischemic), 190,000 were stroke-related deaths, and 3.83 million stroke-disability-adjusted life years. Therefore, the rising incidences of stroke has increased the demand for exoskeleton robotic system for rehabilitation of stroke patients to help improve the quality of life.
Furthermore, musculoskeletal disorders affect the mobility of an individual. The rising prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders, such as tendinitis, sarcopenia, osteopenia, and low back injuries, is expected to fuel the need for exoskeletal robotic systems. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), musculoskeletal diseases affect ~1.71 billion people globally, and low back pain is the leading cause of disability in 160 countries. These exoskeletons robotic systems assist patients in managing their condition and regaining their mobility, thereby improving their overall quality of life. Thus, the rising prevalence of stroke and musculoskeletal disorders has fueled the use of exoskeletal robotic systems for rehabilitation.

The healthcare industry trends are changing drastically due to constant technological developments and innovations, enhancing healthcare services and quality of care. Various global exoskeleton robotic system market players are striving hard to acquire a larger market share, followed by rising investments in exoskeleton robotic systems on a global level. For instance, in April 2022, exoskeleton maker—RoboCT Technology Development Co.—completed a US$ 15.7 million (RMB 100 million) Series A+ financing round. Hangzhou, China-based RoboCT provides the disabled, the elderly, and medical rehabilitation institutes with intelligent rehabilitation devices and robotic technology with data analysis and cloud computing. Additionally, the surge in R&D activities by the companies is expected to accelerate the development of advanced systems for diverse application areas such as healthcare, chemical, defense, and commercial. The companies also hold their technology and intellectual property rights (IPR) that help them maintain their market share. For instance, RoboCT Technology Development Co. is involved in the research and development of exoskeleton technology in several fields, such as entertainment, industry, and sports. RoboCT has applied for over 100 intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and has received more than 20 awards across different fields.
Also, constant technological advancements are expected to augment the market growth. The increased adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) in developing smart exoskeleton robotic systems is expected to complement the market growth. For instance, German Bionic has developed an AI-based exoskeleton robotic system that has added a smart safety companion, and the cloud-based platform for exoskeletons. Thus, the increasing technological advancements and rising investments are likely to catalyze the growth of the global exoskeleton robotic system market
