Human Augmentation MarketSource: The Insight Partners Analysis

The report analyzes factors affecting factors, such as drivers, restraints, opportunities, and future trends. It also provides exhaustive PEST analysis of the factors affecting the human augmentation market.


The COVID-19 pandemic led to disruptions in the supply chain, which adversely impacted the shipments of exoskeletons; AR and VR devices, including projectors and display walls, head-mounted displays, and gesture-tracking devices; and reflected a decrease in demand for human augmentation devices for the first two quarters of 2020 globally. Hence, the human augmentation device manufacturers witnessed a significantly lower volume of orders. A demand-supply imbalance of the human augmentation devices led to the manufacturing of inefficient products. Further, from the second half of 2020, many market players started developing technologically advanced products to meet the increasing demand from end users. Moreover, the growing use of health tracking devices by health-conscious people, including the rising demand for smart wearables capable of monitoring SpO2 levels and heart rate, has significantly contributed to the human augmentation market growth.
