Editor's Note: This paper was first published in the 2017 IPC APEX EXPO Technical Conference. Martin Goetz is the section manag- er, Engineering, Manufacturing & Sci- ences, at Northrop Grumman Corp. Dr. Ramesh Varma is previously a senior advisory engineer at Northrop Grumman Corp. He retired from the company at the end of 2016. A new report from Juniper Research forecasts that revenues from exoskeleton rental and sales will increase from just $53 million in 2017 to $559 million by 2022, a year-on-year growth of over 900%. The research found that despite compelling new applications in healthcare and workplace set- tings, military will continue to dominate exoskele- ton deployments over the next five years. According to the research, military exoskele- tons will make up over 80% of exoskeleton ship- ments by 2022. It found that in the short to me- dium term, unpowered exoskeletons such as the Marine Mojo developed by 20KTS+ will make up the ma- jority of deployments. Powered exoskeletons, the focus of much attention for this industry, will be ini- tially restricted to naval de- ployments, where pow- er supplies are more read- ily available than for other armed forces. The research notes that the arrival of advanced powered exoskeletons in other con- texts is still several years away. "By 2019, we should see more sophisticated military exoskeletons being tested and deployed," said James Moar, report author. "Although these will account for a small percentage of deploy- ments, this – and more widespread implementa- tion of mid-range models such as the Lockheed SKD – will see a dramatic uplift in average pricing, resulting in a sharp rise in the overall value of the market." In addition, the research argued that oth- er industries need to make a business case for deploy- ing exoskeletons to accel- erate adoption. In some in- dustries, like construction, this is relatively simple, as their value can be quanti- fied through the savings made in time, productivity and work safety .
