The global rehabilitation robots market size was valued at USD 529.8 Million in 2018 and is Projected to Reach USD 2,617.3 Million by 2026 exhibiting a CAGR of 22.1% between 2019 and 2026. 

Rehabilitation robotics is a division of robotics that focuses on the development of machines/robots that help people recover from physical trauma. Robots designed are multi-functional manipulators to help move material and are vital to serve as devices to help people with disabilities. Since the evolution of rehabilitation robots since the 1960s, it has been developed as assistive devices, prosthetics, robot-mediated therapy, and many others.

The assistive technology aims to enhance the efficacy of medical treatment and to increase the ease of activities performed by patients with disabilities. Recently, in January 2019, Bionik Laboratories Corp. launched InMotion ARM/HAND robotic system for clinical rehabilitation of stroke survivors and those with mobility impairments due to neurological conditions. The introduction of new devices and the high investments by different key market players into rehabilitation robots will help in the rehabilitation robots market growth.

Market Segmentation 

"Aging Population, Rising Cases Of Strokes And Serval Other Chronic Diseases to Favor Growth of the Market" 

Aging population and rising cases of stroke rendering people immobile, are few of the major factors driving the rehabilitation robots market share. The therapeutics robots segment is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period, aiding the rehabilitation robots market size.

For instance, PARO is a companion robot, developed by Dr. Takanori Shibata of Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. PARO has been designed for patients with Dementia, Alzheimer's, and other cognition disorders. Assistive robots help people with disabilities accomplish activities of daily living, such as walking and eating.

These assistive medical robots are also used to recover a patient from a stroke or other causes of paralysis. The increasing investment by key market players in the development and design of novel assistive robots to treat patients with various disease conditions, is one of the major factor anticipated to drive the rehabilitation robots market growth.

The rising investments by key players can augment the rehabilitation robots market revenue.  Increasing prevalence of diseases like cerebral palsy (CP), multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease (PD), and spinal cord injuries will also drive the need for rehabilitation robots. These factors are anticipated to propel the market growth.
