Global smart exoskeleton market is anticipated to grow at CAGR of over 38% during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for rehabilitation of people suffering from physical disorders and neurological disorders. Smart exoskeleton systems are made using sensors and actuators to provide enhanced support to specific body parts. These systems are witnessing massive adoption for clinical purposes which is driving global smart exoskeleton market through 2024.  

Smart exoskeleton market can be segmented based on component, type, body part, application and region. On the basis of component, the market can be segmented into actuators, sensors, power source, control system, among others. In 2018, actuators held the dominant share and the segment is poised to grow at high rate during forecast period as it can improve the efficiency of exoskeletons through control of errant motions. Based on type, smart exoskeleton market can be bifurcated into soft exoskeleton and rigid exoskeleton. Rigid exoskeleton dominated the market in 2018, however, soft exoskeleton segment is anticipated to grow at the highest rate during forecast period owing to its light weight and compact size. Smart exoskeleton finds application in industrial, military, healthcare, among others. Owing to growing rehabilitation requirements for disorders such as gait disorders, spinal cord injuries, among others, healthcare segment is likely to witness extensive adoption of exoskeleton until 2024.

Regionally, the market for smart exoskeleton is gaining traction and expanding to various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America and Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest rate during forecast period due to increasing geriatric population and increasing manufacturing activities in countries like China and Japan to meet the increasing demand.
