The "Medical Exoskeleton Market: Industry Trends and Global Forecasts, till 2035 - Distribution by Body Part Covered, Mode of Operation, Form of Exoskeleton, Mobility, End Users, and Key Geographical Regions" report has been added to's offering.

The global medical exoskeleton market is anticipated to grow from $1.09 billion in 2024 to $8.70 billion by 2035, growing at a CAGR of 20.8% during the forecast period from 2024 to 2035.

One of the key objectives of this market report was to estimate the current market size, opportunity and the future growth potential for medical exoskeleton companies, over the forecast period. Based on multiple parameters, likely adoption trends and through primary validations, the analyst has provided an informed estimate on the market evolution during the forecast period 2024-2035.

The potential for medical exoskeletons is immense, with a vast addressable market stemming from the significant patient population in need of mobility assistance. Statistics suggest that neurological diseases represent a significant public health challenge, with an estimated global burden of over one billion people affected. According to the Lancet Neurology Commission, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a global public-health problem, which afflicts 55 million people worldwide, whereas another research suggests that currently, 20.6 million individuals are suffering from spinal cord injury.

Despite the immense population with mobility disorders, the exoskeleton market remains relatively niche, gradually gaining traction. It can be attributed to various factors, including the high costs associated with exoskeleton technology and a general lack of awareness among both patients and healthcare providers.

However, as technological advancements continue and awareness spreads, the medical exoskeleton market is poised for expansion, promising improved accessibility and quality of life for individuals in need of mobility support. In fact, several companies are developing exoskeleton technology integrated with advanced features such as controllers and software applications that enable users and clinicians to set goals, adjust assistance levels, and analyze movement patterns to meet personalized rehabilitation plans.

Market Share by Key Geographical Regions

Based on the key geographical regions, the medical exoskeleton market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. North America dominated the medical exoskeletons market and accounted for the largest revenue share in 2024. Further, harmonization of regulations is a positive development, which is likely to drive the adoption of exoskeletons, especially in the developing countries. As the prices of these rehabilitating devices drop, the medical exoskeleton market in the Asia-Pacific region is expected to pick up momentum, exhibiting a relatively higher growth rate.

Technological Advancements in the Exoskeleton Market: Exosuit Technology Providing Lighter and More Flexible Options

Exosuits utilize soft, fabric-based materials and are designed to seamlessly integrate with the user's body movements, resulting in a more natural and comfortable experience. However, despite their advantages, exoskeletons employing exosuit technology may not provide as much assistance or support as rigid exoskeletons to larger areas of the body. As a result, these are primarily designed for targeted body parts, such as thumb, hand, wrist, angle and wrist. Currently, only 33% of medical exoskeletons incorporate the soft exosuit technology.
