Exoskeleton Market
Exoskeleton Market


The exoskeleton market is anticipated display a CAGR significant growth of around 35% over the forecast period (2021-2027). The global exoskeleton market is expected to witness robust growth mainly due to the increase in the rising incidence rate of Spinal Cord Injuries (SCIs) with increasing falls, motor vehicle accidents (automobiles, motorcycles, sports injuries, and diving accidents which also leads to change in your brain which changes the muscle acceptance, especially among the disabled individuals with spinal cord injury population. Exoskeletons are robotic structures that humans can wear to boost their strength and mobility. As per the World Health Organization’s data estimates published in February 2021, approximately 1.71 billion individuals across the globe suffer from musculoskeletal disorders. Therefore, the constantly evolving exoskeleton industry is driving market players to devise innovative product development strategies to boost the adoption rate and activate the market revenue.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic across the world has had a tremendous impact on different spectra of society, the market for exoskeleton no less.
