The market for human augmentation has several different application sectors, including energy & utilities, healthcare, defense, and many more. These all contribute to the global human augmentation market's expansion.

One of the main factors propelling the human augmentation industry growth is the rising market demand for wearable devices in the healthcare industry, the introduction of wearable devices powered by AI, and the quickening pace of technological advancements, including the availability of fast processing chipsets, the miniaturization of sensors, and the development of nanotechnology. Exoskeletons, AR, and VR devices are now more commonly used in the workplace as the need for high productivity and a greater focus on worker safety has grown.

Exoskeletons are employed in various industries, including shipbuilding, heavy machinery, and construction, since they may be adapted to lift huge objects, ensure worker safety, and increase production and worker efficiency. Furthermore, the market demand for human augmentation is further accelerated by the technicians increasingly using AR gadgets to boost productivity in their workplaces. Workers can utilize smart helmets to interpret designs and instructions since they provide real-time data.

However, one major issue with immersive user experiences is the immobility that comes with using different AR/VR-based headsets. Such headsets require the use of cords and other devices to connect to the PC, necessitating the user's prolonged inactivity. Pain in the back, neck, and joints results from inactivity.

Another issue with VR-compatible devices is their low resolution. AR games are very captivating and can captivate players for long periods, which can cause problems including anxiety, eye strain, and weight gain. The rise in health-related worries brought on by the increased use of AR and VR technologies is a significant factor impeding the human augmentation market growth.

Globally, COVID-19 has caused a serious health catastrophe and multiple fatalities. Lockdowns were implemented in various places, which caused supply chain delays. During the first two quarters of 2020, major producers of items for human augmentation were negatively impacted by the epidemic.

Lockdowns were imposed in many areas, which caused a mismatch between supply and demand, which prevented businesses from operating at full capacity. The pandemic's effects on the supply chain have harmed the shipments of exoskeletons, Augmented Reality (AR), and Virtual Reality (VR) equipment like head-mounted displays, projections and display walls, and gesture-tracking devices.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
To remain competitive in the market, the major players in the human augmentation industry are implementing various growth activities, such as mergers and acquisitions, geographical expansion, new product launches, and product innovation. For instance,  Fitbit released the Ace 3 special edition: minions in June 2021 to encourage kids ages 6 and up to get active and develop healthy habits.

The most recent release includes a sleep tracker line with an approximate reminder to workout and daily activity goals, as well as a swim-proof design with 8-day battery life. NASA provided the Fitbit device and its ready-to-work solution as part of a test study in February 2021 to assist employees in making better decisions about whether or not to participate on-site during the covid-19 pandemic.

In March 2021, the AMS AG capacitive sensor AS8579 confirmed improved fluid-level detecting capabilities. The sensor can detect many liquids in a container. The sensor can determine how much fuel is in a tank or how much water is in a washing machine. The AS8579 sensor debuted in February 2021, introducing a new sensing technology.

The sensor can be used for hands-on detection in vehicles equipped with driver assistance systems (HOD). It also cooperates with UN Regulation 79, which relates to all new cars installed with a lane-keeping assist framework in all ratified nations. Furthermore, in January 2021, the company started deploying 3D sensor systems to new industrial applications.
