The assistive robotics market was valued at USD 3.1 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 22.3% during 2019-2024 to reach USD 11.2 billion by 2024. In terms of volume, the market registered a shipment of 389 thousand units in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19.4% during the forecast period to reach 1,147 thousand units by 2024.

The increasing prevalence of strokes and spinal cord injuries leading to disabilities is one of the key factors driving the growth of the assistive robotics market. Also, the increasing insurance coverage for medical exoskeletons and surgeries is likely to act as a major driver for the growth of the assistive robotics market.

An assistive robot is a robotic device that performs a physical task for people with disabilities, the elderly, toddlers, and industrial workers. The aim of assistive robotics is to develop robotic aids for supporting people living independently and those who have degenerative limitations, such as elderly and people with disabilities.

Assistive robots have the capability to perceive their environment and individuals with the help of sensors and intelligent algorithms, to communicate with people multimodally, to navigate autonomously, and to make decisions independently. These assistive robotic systems are used in various applications such as elderly assistance, companionship, handicap assistance, surgery assistance, industrial, defense, public relations, and others.

The increase in funding worldwide for research on assistive robotics is expected to fuel the growth of the assistive robotics market during the forecast period. The necessity to abide by various standards and certifications needed for adoption, especially in the medical industry, hinders the growth of the assistive robotics market. In addition, the lack of social awareness about the benefits of adopting assistive robotics systems and the risk of proximity accidents are the major challenges for the players in the assistive robotics market.
