This has significantly increased the demand for different types of smart exoskeleton thereby, fueling the market growth. Additionally, increasing demand from industrial sectors in order to prevent workplace injuries is further expected to boost the market growth. Also, the use of smart exoskeletons has significantly increased for military purposes especially in North American and European countries. Many aerospace & defense companies in these regions have started manufacturing smart exoskeletons for military purposes. This in turn is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the overall growth of market in the next few years.

Smart exoskeleton market can be segmented based on component, type, product type, body part, application, region and company.On the basis of component, the market can be segmented into actuators, sensors, power source, control system, among others.

In 2020, actuators dominated the market with an overall share of around 31.23% and the segment is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period since they improve the efficiency of the exoskeletons through control of errant motions. Additionally, actuators form an integral part of different kinds of smart exoskeletons. Based on type, the market can be bifurcated into rigid exoskeleton and soft exoskeleton.
