Executive Summary
Rapid advancements in robotics technologies in the recent years has led to the emergence and growth of robotic exoskeletons, a distinctive field of robotics. Exoskeletons are defined as robotic wearable devices, providing augmentation to the body parts, rehabilitation of the dysfunctional sensory movements, and assistance to the disabled people.

Utilization of exoskeleton have its advantages over the conventional method of manual therapy, as it is capable of providing intensive training for patients, improved functional outcomes, and better quantitative feedback. In addition to this, exoskeletons deliver a novel solution for other emerging industries too, including industrial, defense, and commercial, for different set of applications, such as assistance, sports and body parts support.

The wearable robotic exoskeleton market will take several years to reach its full market potential and commercialization. Currently, commercial exoskeleton devices tend to be cumbersome and slow, and hence, need to be more user friendly. Moreover, the cost of powered exoskeletons present in the market is very high as compared to the passive ones.

One of the strategies opted by manufacturers to reduce the selling price is by continuously upgrading and optimizing their products, conducting clinical trials, and expanding their sales and distribution network.

Another way to reduce the selling price of exoskeletons being utilized by manufacturers is to reduce the complexity of the powered exoskeleton.

The wearable robotic exoskeleton market is witnessing a high growth rate owing to machine intelligence surpassing human intelligence in defense industry, rise in demand of exoskeletons for rehabilitation application, and rapidly growing aged population. Recent innovations in exoskeleton components and services has enabled the exoskeleton technology to reach a wider segment of consumers in the industry. However, stringent government regulations for exoskeletons in healthcare industry and high selling price of powered exoskeletons, contribute as major challenges for the market.

This, in effect, is expected to increase competition in the near future as well as facilitate the utilization of exoskeleton for varied applications. The wearable robotic exoskeleton market reported a revenue of $96.0 million in 2016, with healthcare industry accommodating for the highest revenue by 2026.

As the figure shows, the healthcare industry contributed largest share to the exoskeleton industry, owing to substantial number of companies in the market are manufacturing powered exoskeletons for medical usage. In the year 2016, exoskeletons for defense were mainly test trialed by the companies as a part of research and development initiatives and commercial sale was not noticeable. However, the industry is expected to grow with the highest growth rate during the forecast period, 2017 – 2026, owing to the involvement of key manufacturers as well as defense organizations in developing efficient exoskeletons for military usage.

The future demand for exoskeletons across different geographies is expected to be promising, with Europe having the highest market share during the forecast period (2016-2026), followed by Asia-Pacific, North America, and Rest of the World. Europe is expected to maintain its dominance through the forecast period, owing to the developments in active exoskeletons for healthcare industry. Emerging start-ups in the region are also very keen to develop passive exoskeletons for applications such as back support, skiing, arm support, leg support, upper body fixed rehabilitation, and military.

Furthermore, there is higher spending in healthcare by the governments of different nations in the region, which accounted for 41.0% of the overall healthcare spending worldwide, in 2016. Moreover, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth in the market, owing to increased military spending.
