Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 – 2035

Exoskeleton Market size is slated to cross USD 11 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 24% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of exoskeleton was around USD 1 Billion. The major element anticipated to influence the market demand is the growth in number of people suffering from spinal cord injuries. Between 250,000 and 500,000 individuals get spinal cord injuries annually globally. The majority of these cases have resulted from avoidable factors including violence and auto accidents.

Furthermore, with technological improvements, the demand for robots is impacted by the specifications of what they are made of and their prospective uses. The introduction of superior materials, sensors and actuators, control systems, and software technologies is a result of ongoing study and development in the field of electrical and electronic engineering. These cutting-edge components have made it simpler to develop exoskeletons that are new, better, very power-efficient, self-powered, lightweight, less complicated, and portable.

Exoskeleton Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Prevalence of Emergency Situation

In accordance with the Emergency Event Database EM-DAT, 387 natural disasters, and hazards took place around the world in 2022, claiming 30,704 deaths and affecting 185 million people. In emergency and rescue situations, robotics may be used in a variety of ways. A robotic exoskeleton could undoubtedly assist in the actual rescue by transporting supplies, rescuing individuals from hazardous circumstances, or just offering information about the circumstance.

  • Rise in the Use of Exoskeleton for Industrial Use

Exoskeletons are employed in factories to aid employees with painting. To lower tiredness and improve production, the exoskeleton enables the worker to utilize their arms with greater efficiency. Exoskeleton technology has also been shown to help welders maintain better posture and reduce muscular fatigue, which may result in fewer injuries and more production.

  • Surge in Preference for this Product by Military

There has been growing interest from the military from all over the world in deploying exoskeleton owing to their various advantages. Exoskeleton come equipped with sensors that let soldiers maintain tabs on their health while wearing them. Additionally, it enables communication via voice instructions & hand gestures and reduces heat loss during nighttime operations by generating electricity using body heat via thermoelectric implants.


  • High Cost of Robotic Exoskeleton
  • Limited Range of Power - They are currently equipped with a restricted range of mobile power supplies, which makes it difficult to move them about and causes their battery life to deplete rapidly. Hence, this factor is set to limit the market demand.
  • Motion Range is Limited

Exoskeleton Segmentation

Product (Lower Extremities, Full Body, Upper Extremities)

The upper extremities segment in the exoskeleton market is set to generate the largest revenue of 56 percent by the end of 2035. Exoskeletons for the upper extremities may boost pressures acting on a worker's arms and torso that vary from the forces required to move a load. They serve as essential human extenders that boost human strength to enable the handling of large, bulky items. During the forecast period, the prevalence of accidental accidents is anticipated to raise demand for upper extremities as these exoskeletons serve as an alternative for an accident-related arm or hand that has been lost entirely or partially.

Technology (Powered, Passive)

Exoskeleton market from the powered segment is expected to have notable growth with a registered share of 60 percent over the projected period. Powered exoskeleton robots are capable of transferring weight, enabling improved mobility with fewer strains or injuries. For armed personnel traveling greater distances in harsh terrain such as mountains and cliffs, this is extremely crucial. Hence, this segment is anticipated to experience the biggest year-over-year growth during the forecast timeframe as a result.

End User (Industrial, Military & Defense, Healthcare)

The healthcare segment in the exoskeleton market is poised to rise over the forecast period. The healthcare industry has recently seen an enormous rise in the number of exoskeleton remedies being created for rehabilitation training for humans and rehabilitation robots to assist persons who are paralyzed entirely or partially.
