The global Robotic Vacuum Cleaners market was valued at USD 4,217.8 Million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 10,284.9 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 11.2% during the forecast period. A robotic vacuum cleaner refers to an autonomous robot equipped with an intelligent software program. It performs the functions of a regular vacuum cleaner with minimal to no human intervention. As these cleaners are compact, they can easily access and clean spaces under beds, cabinets, and tables. They produce less noise as compared to their non-robotic counterparts and are fitted with sensors that prevent them from hitting other objects or falling down the stairs. As they complete the chores in lesser time and at a lower cost without any manual labor, they are increasingly becoming popular across commercial and residential sectors for cleaning windows, pools, lawns, and floors. The other factors such as reduced unit prices, changes in socioeconomic factors, namely increased female employment, change of flooring type from carpet to the hard floor, as well as an increase in pet ownership, are some of the major drivers underpinning growth opportunities in global robotic vacuum cleaners’ market.
Robotic vacuum cleaners are automated cleaning equipment that allows users to clean the facility autonomously without human control. A few years back, robots were looked upon as a futuristic luxury, but today, they make up around 20% of the worldwide vacuum cleaners market. Robotic vacuum cleaners enable comparatively quick and easy cleaning of large spaces than manual cleaning. In addition, since robotic vacuum cleaners do not require manual intervention for operations, they significantly reduce costs (human resources) and time required for the cleaning process, thereby improving the overall efficiency of homeowners and business organizations. As these cleaners are compact in size, they can easily access and clean spaces under beds, cabinets, and tables. They produce less noise as compared to their non-robotic counterparts and are fitted with sensors that prevent them from hitting other objects or falling down the stairs. As they complete the chores in lesser time and at a lower cost without any manual labor, they are increasingly becoming popular across commercial and residential sectors for cleaning windows, pools, lawns and floor.
The market is driven by factors such as increasing use of IoT in consumer appliances, increased female employment require ease in doing housework are considered as the primary reason for market growth.
Increasing use of Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT)
The global robotic vacuum cleaners market growth is premised on the rising demand for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) enabled home appliances. According to research by Cisco, by 2021, automated home appliances will represent nearly 46% of machine-to-machine connections. Robotic vacuum cleaners are home appliances that are AI-powered and fully automated. They require little to no human intervention and can be controlled remotely through voice recognition software. They also have an in-built navigation system, various types of sensors, and scheduling programs. Voice interaction and recognition are some of the most used features in robotic vacuum cleaners. For example, iRobot’s Roomba i7+ is enabled with Amazon’s Alexa virtual assistant. These robots can manage household work by mopping the floors, enhancing security features of the house, and even serve as intercoms.
Installation of Air Filters in Robotic Vacuum Cleaners To Boost The Market
Robotic vacuum cleaners are embedded with air filters that clean the air in the house. The global robotic vacuum cleaners’ market is poised to grow based on this factor since increasing pollution levels have contaminated the air with particulate matter. This dirt-filled air is creating allergies and lung disorders in people, which has spiked the demand for air filters globally. Robotic vacuums have high-efficiency filters, such as the High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestant (HEPA), fitted into their bodies which remove harmful particles from the air permanently. Such advanced features will boost the adoption rate of this technology and grease the wheels of the global robotic vacuum cleaner’s market revenue.
High Cost of The Machines May Limit Market Growth
Robotic vacuum cleaners are expensive, which can make prospective consumers think twice before investing in them. Another notable disadvantage is that these vacuums run on batteries and are, therefore, highly dependent on them. These factors can seriously hinder the growth of the global robotic vacuum cleaners market during the forecast period.
Based on types, the Robotic Floor Vacuum Cleaners was the largest product segment in the global robotic vacuum cleaners’ market in 2019. The segment contributed over three-fourth of the global market value in the same year. Floor space expansion with a rising number of residential units and businesses will drive demand for robotic floor vacuum cleaners throughout the forecast period. On the other hand, demand for robotic pool vacuum cleaners is expected to surge on the back of economic development resulting in an increased number of commercial establishments (hotels, sports complex, etc.) with swimming pools. In 2019, the global robotic floor vacuum cleaners’ market was valued at USD 3,209.9 Million and is expected to reach USD 7,493.4 Million by 2027, expanding with a CAGR of 10.9% through the forecast period 2020 – 2027.
Opportunities to innovate and launch new products are growing in the global robotic vacuum cleaners’ market. Many companies are entering the scene and developing novel products. For example, in December 2018, Neato Robotics launched its on-demand zone cleaning robot vacuum, Botvac D7 Connected. The robot uses LIDAR technology to scan and map the efficient course of cleaning the designated room. It will also enable buyers to identify trouble zones and target them specifically.
In terms of regions, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Europe is a promising region for the market. It constituted a 33.5% share of the market in 2019. The market in the region is projected to expand at a CAGR of 10.8% during the forecast period. Rapid advancement in automation technologies in Japan and China is expected to push the global robotic vacuum cleaners’ market in Asia-Pacific. North America is anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities to market players owing to larger houses and widespread use of carpets. The increasing popularity of cordless vacuum cleaners in Western European countries will bolster the global robotic vacuum cleaners’ market in the region in the foreseeable future.
