The global military exoskeleton market is garnering massive traction. Market growth attributes to the increasing defense budgets and R&D activities to develop futuristic military devices and equipments. Exoskeleton increases mobility and reduces fatigue for operators, which could prove helpful during combat or rescue missions. These equipments give armed forces a massive advantage over enemy combatants, carrying loads over long distances without stressing soldier’s leg muscles.
Resultantly, military sectors across the world spend millions of dollars to design and build their military-use powered exoskeleton. According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global military exoskeleton market is poised to grow at a whopping double-digit CAGR of 25.87% throughout the forecast period (2019-2025). Wearable robots and powered hip-knee device with a remote wireless interface can reportedly nullify the weight of 30kg. To achieve this, these wearable frames extend to the ground.
With the advancements of technologies, prices of the military exoskeleton are expected to reduce dropping dramatically, which would increase the size of the market, increasing the adoption of these devices. Rise in cross border operations increases the market demand.
