Robotic Exoskeleton Market Drivers

Increasing Demand of Exoskeleton in Military and Medical Application 

A robotic exoskeleton supports the mobility of people suffering from diseases such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, and cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease. There is growing importance of exoskeleton in military operations as it helps in assisting injured soldiers and lifting heavy objects which is driving the growth of this market. Exoskeleton technologies helps to improve stamina and safety and also provides new ability to fighting forces. Companies such as Lockheed Martin are working on new powered lower-body exoskeleton, ONYX, which has demonstrated its ability to increase mobility and reduce fatigue. This technology helps to reduce effort in walking and climbing that can help soldiers to carry a mission-essential equipment and also helps to go extra mile. Rising military spending on the development of innovative equipment to strengthen the armed forces capability is increasing the demand of this market. In July 2015, the Australian Department of Defence developed a fully-passive system capable of reducing compression forces on the lower portion of the body. The US government are working on TALOS project in 2019 for developing a mobile exoskeleton to be used by Special Forces.
