本報告提供全球外骨骼動力服 (Powered Exoskeleton：電動外骨骼) 的市場相關分析，產品概要、特性，及相關產業的關聯性、預計的產品生命週期、市場規模的估計值 (今後11年份)、各部門/各用途詳細內容趨勢、主要企業 (包含預定進入的企業) 簡介和市場競爭力等調查、考察。
Powered Exoskeletons or Powered Armor or Exosuits are wearable robots powered by motors or hydraulics, exhibiting a close cognitive and physical interaction with the wearer and assists him by delivering part of the energy for limb movements. With the advances in the technology in Mechanical, Biomedical and Electronic engineering and artificial intelligence the robotic exoskeleton technology has witnessed a rapid development. The main applications of Exoskeletons can be seen in military and medical industries.
Even though the Exoskeletons aren't deployed at wide scale, companies have been developing many working prototypes. XOS by Sarcos, Human Universal Load Carrier(HULC) by Lockheed Martin, Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) by Cyberdyne Inc are some of them. MIT researchers developed a prototype for exoskeleton that reduces metabolic energy used when walking and carrying loads. Eskobionics is another company that is developing exoskeletons using bionics.
Exoskeletons can be used as training aid for medical patients and soldiers can carry heavy weights. Lokomat by Hocoma, Capio by DFKL Gmbh and HAL by Cyberdyne are some of them. With the development of technology, the applications which were once limited to Teleoperation and Power amplification now widened to telemanipulation, man-amplification, neuromotion control research and rehabilitation.
There are limitations to this technology. The energy source should be able to supply enough power in order for exoskeletons to operate for extended periods.
When the goal is physical enhancement, response time matters. The exoskeletons should be capable of quick and agile movements, should be safe to operate without extensive training. Also, they must be built with material that are lightweight and can resist high load conditions.
Increasing orthopedic disorders and evolution of batteries, high-density storage systems and lightweight structural materials are driving the market whereas the weight and price of exoskeletons are restraining the market. Making health insurance companies to cover for exoskeletons and designing a power source with sufficient energy density that can fuel an exoskeleton for extended periods of time can be huge opportunities.
Rewalk Robotics, Honda, Parker Hannifin, Cyberdyne already entered into the market commercializing their products. Flexibility, Ability to control and modulate unwanted movements, detection of unsafe motions are the things that need attention in order to gain acceptability. The exoskeletons for simple medical assistance are estimated more common than full body exoskeletons in immediate future.
The study, besides estimating the Powered Exoskeleton market potential between 2016 and 2021, analyzes on who can be the market leaders and what partnerships would help them to capture the market share. The report gives an overview about the dynamics of the market, by discussing various aspects such as drivers, restraints, Porter's 5 forces, value chain, customer acceptance and investment scenario.
The study in brief deals with the product life cycle, comparing it to the relevant products from across industries that had already been commercialized. It approximates the time for innovation, in order for the industry to maintain a stable growth over a sustained period. The report also details the potential for various applications, discussing about recent product innovations and gives an overview on potential regional market shares.
