Rising Incidence of Strokes and Spinal Cord Injuries Spurring the Growth of Rehabilitation Robots Market: Fact.MR

Increasing demand for robotic exoskeletons as a rehabilitation tool bolstering the growth of the market

The global rehabilitation robots market is exhibiting a steady growth due to rising prevalence of stroke, traumatic brain injuries, dementia, and other age-related disabilities. As per a study by Fact.MR, the rehabilitation robots market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 22.1% during the forecasting period 2021-2031.

According to a study by National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in 2021, nearly 1.7 million incidences of traumatic brain injuries were recorded, with older adolescents aging 15 to 19 years and older adult age 65 years and older in the U.S.

More than 50 million people are suffering from dementia and around 10 million new incidences of the disease are recorded every year across the globe, according to World Health Organization (WHO) in 2020. As rehabilitation robots assist in the treatment of this condition, the increasing incidence of traumatic brain injuries and dementia will fuel the demand for rehabilitation robots.

North America is dominating the rehabilitation robots market. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 795,000 people in the U.S. have a stroke every year and within every 4 minutes, someone dies because of stroke. This high number of stroke cases has made the region, a center point for the expansion of the rehabilitation robots market.

“Key market players are emphasizing on R&D for receiving FDA approval and increasing investment for introducing new products to strengthen their market positions,” says a Fact.MR analyst.
